We had our late-May wedding on the Freedom Elite, and it was the best decision we made! We wanted a wedding that was intimate and unique, and having our ceremony and reception on the water was perfect! We had 60 guests aboard the yacht, and everyone had so much fun! It's been a few weeks, and we still look back at the pictures reminiscing our perfect day.

Both Amanda and Robyn were one of our favorite vendors to work with. They were professional, responsive, and helped provide great advice throughout the planning process. I did not have a wedding planner, so I tried to be as organized as possible for Robyn and her team. As part of our package, we also had our cake and DJ vendor booked. Huge plus! Kurt was our DJ, and he ROCKED it! EVERYONE was dancing, and enjoyed all of the songs he played. The cake vendor is Bredenbeck's, and they were an absolute dream to work with!

The staff and bartender kept the party going! Special shoutout to Robyn because she truly is a great person to work with. She helped me with all of the last-minute details, coordinated with vendors, and kept making sure that the bride and groom had everything that they needed!

When I tell you, the staff was exceptional. My wife had left the wedding certificate at our house which was 25 minutes away and she only had 15 minutes to get to the board before it took off, the captain of the boat waited the extra 10minutes. Because of him my day was amazing we got married , laugh and enjoyed the Cruise. thank you so much.

We had an afternoon wedding on the water! Wow! could not have asked for more! The sales rep for the Spirit was outstanding, she helped us pick a great menu for our guest, while being aware of our budget. We wanted something alittle different in a reception, and we got it, we had a big wedding feel with a small wedding budget! The views of the city from the boat were breath taking. Can't wait to go back for night out as a married couple and re-live the trip on the Spirit!
