Absolutely perfect wedding ceremony!!
I just was not keen on a courthouse wedding for the second time around and happen to come across Sail Selina II while searching for other venues. Selina II was just beautiful, a meticulously maintained 1926 catboat, very comfortable and the weather perfect for a ceremony at sea. What a special day this was for us. Ceremony was magical. Capt. Iris made us both feel at ease with her bubbly personality. First mate Elisabeth was hard working and delightful and also suggested we visit the lighthouse for additional pictures. This was definitely the best day ever!! If you are looking for something special to do for a wedding I highly recommend the Selina II.Sent on 09/07/2019

Perfect day all around! Beautiful scenery & beautiful boat. The most romantic setting for a wedding. Captain Iris made this fairy tale wedding come true. Could not belive how reasonable the price was...the adage you get what you pay for is wrong in this case!! We got so much more than we paid for..a special way to celebrate our special day. The Salina II is an excellent choice for wedding or Anniversary...we will definitely be celebrating anniversaries aboard this beautiful boat.Sent on 06/16/2016

Wonderful on the Water Weddings!!!
I had the pleasure of working with Captain Iris for an elopement aboard the Sail Selina II and she did such a great job! Not only did she captain the ship, she performed a sweet ceremony while under sail. This was the perfect way to celebrate an intimate marriage ceremony!
I was invited aboard the Selina II for two beautiful September weddings. It was an event that I will never forget. Captain Iris Clarke mixes a splash of nautical teachings, and a dash of humor, with spiritual observations as she takes you along the Miles river aboard the magical ship that is the Selina II. Her wedding services are inspirational and she truly brings out the joy of that very moment. By the time we were back at the dock, I felt as if she was a dear friend I had known all my life. As a photographer, you can not beat the scenery - I could not ask for a better backdrop than the St. Michael's harbor, the open water, and most importantly the Selina II herself. I've been on a few boats but none quite as photogenic. I'm hoping to return this sailing season to photograph more weddings.
