    Dear Camille,

    I hope all is well and please accept our long overdue but heartfelt thanks for the stunning job you did for our wedding. We have no idea how to prepare a yacht wedding at the very start. It was you helping us out whenever needed in the past few months and took so much stress off of us. You always gave us response quickly and helped us find the best solutions to the problems during the preparation of the wedding. We couldn't have done it without your help.

    The wedding was truly magical, amazing and was everything we had envisioned. Many of our guests said that it was one of the most wonderful weddings that they have been to! You made our special day perfect, and we can't thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication. We have, and will continue to recommend your service to our friends who are interested in having an event on a yacht. Also if you get any chances, please pass along our thanks to Hidayet, the captain and the waitstaff for their help and fantastic work.

    Thank you again and have a good day!

    Sincerely,
    Yu Hu

    I could not more wholeheartedly recommend Smooth Sailing Celebrations! Camille is an absolute joy to work with and 100% the reason why I was an un-stressed bride. She beautifully took care of all my incessant detail requests, answered my millions of questions, and always made me feel like her most important client. Our wedding day being perfect mattered as much to her as it did to us! Both my husband and I, and all our guests were blown away and truly had the most magical day. (“The wedding of the century” I was told.) Camille was my wedding angel, and we will always have her to thank for the best day of our lives.

    I have been working with Camille Cerria, owner of Smooth Sailing Celebrations, for the better part of 5 years now. Since I am her reccomended entertainement vendor, Camille and I work very closely behind the scenes, as well as in conjuntion with our clients to guarantee the overall success of our events. Camille is extremely detail oriented, and easily accessible to answer any of our questions. I get nothing but rave reviews of her services, and highly reccomend her to anyone interested in booking their special event on a boat/yacht. As many of our clients are either Brides, Corporate professionals, Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrants, or Sweet 16 celebrants, they have all had the peace of mind knowing that Camille was taking care of all the details that they may not have even considered, allowing them to invest their time into just having a great time. It's all said in the name, so if you are looking for Smooth Sailing for your Celebration, look no further than Camille!

    Smooth Sailing Celebrations understands how to take care of all the little things, so couples and their guests can enjoy the experience of celebrating on the yachts. I've had the pleasure of seeing first-hand several of the vessels in their fleet, and they truly have something for every size and preference. From the decor, to the staff, to the food and music, it is a simply an awesome and unique way to host an event.
