Had an amazing time with Electra Cruises. Susan took care of everything before the day of the wedding and Kim handled the wedding day. Felt like I had nothing to worry about with Electra Cruises, everything was included in the package set up by them and I added the upgrades, which so happy that I did that.

From the second I got engaged, I knew I wanted an ocean wedding. My mom suggested Electra Cruises, as she has attended events for work through them. The second we got in contact with our wedding planner, Allison, I knew that everything would be fine. Allison was incredibly wonderful - she answered every question we had within 24 hours, she recommended the perfect DJ, Photographer, and Officiant when we told her we wanted a fun and relaxed event, and she even took the time to meet with us face-to-face to go over some details. We live in Colorado so she really helped to ease our stress of getting everything together and making sure everything goes right from a few states away.
We got married on "The Electra", which is the smallest boat they have, and it was so wonderful for our small and intimate wedding. They allowed us to make our centerpieces and chair decorations so when we brought them on the boat, along with the guest book, card box, and other items, they were great at setting everything up. All we had to do was bring them the boxes everything was in and they set it up for us. We were incredibly happy with how professional they were and how little we had to do. We just had to focus on getting ready and getting married. Everyone worked quickly and efficiently to make sure everything was done correctly and on time. We did not have to worry about a single thing. We appreciate Electra Cruises so much, for making our day the absolute best it could have been and making the whole process incredibly easy.
