Wow, what a day!
We went from having a small lunch with our family in San Francisco to finding Polly and Hornblower Cruises, and we could not have been happier with our experience and our wedding day.
Polly is amazing. She takes the time to listen, ask the right questions and make sure you feel comfortable during every step of the planning process. Her team was so great to work with and even though most of the planning was done virtually since don't live in California anymore, we felt so cared for.
Polly took the time during our phone calls and video conferences to explain the details and get us the best deal for our budget. When we did visit in-person, the team was able to show us the boat, let us taste the amazing cake and helped us pick external vendors for our flowers and food. And our day was truly amazing. Every guest loved it and we honestly had such a fun and relaxing day because of all the behind the scenes work Polly and her team did.
We have stayed in touch with Polly 2 years after our wedding and are excited for the friendship that has formed. Strongly recommend checking them out!!Sent on 02/22/2021

I called Hornblower to inquire about at wedding reception and was connected with Mr. John Barrall, Hornblowers wedding and event coordinator who informed me that they do full weddings onboard and I was sold. John was amazing start to finish!He kept in constant contact with me, and even checked in every once in while to make sure that everything was to our liking and going as planned. He was also very understanding, had a professional and happy demeanor throughout and played a big part in making me feel like a special bride.I couldn’t wait to marry the man of my dreams. On the day once I arrived I was greeted by a member of the Hornblower staff. At 6pmSent on 04/28/2015
she guided my fiance onto the yacht, then once in place she came to bring me on. Everything was setup like a mini chapel with our guests seated and Captain Enrique Gonzalez waiting to marry us. Captain Gonzalez was amazing, and very funny. After the ceremony we were greeted with a champagne toast by our Matrie’D Gabriel who led us downstairs for our first dance. We had the ship to ourselves this whole time, before they let on other guests. Gabriel was on point all night, constantly made sure everyone in our party was cared for with a smile on his face and a pleasant demeanor. He was awesome! The whole Infinity staff were smiling and made us feel special and cheery. DJ Kev was awesome as well, he incorporated songs I requested,&had us everyone out of their seats. This time on the Infinity felt special and different than our other times we've been onboard. Our tables were set-up different, and instead of one waiter taking good care of us we had a team of waiters. Everything was perfect and my husband, our guests and I had an amazing night! The drinks were strong,the food was delicious, the cake was so beautiful, and the DJ literally had everyone dancing all night. We are still getting compliments on our wedding. From planning on day one, to the end of the night on my big day I had a blast.
