Captain Matthew, Cori and Katie were all great. Cori and Katie helped with some of the planning so that I didn't have to do it all. I was looking for a stress free, small wedding and didn't want to hire a planner. Cori and Katie didn't handle everything, but they handled a good deal of it and made my life easier. They were super flexible, friendly and helpful the whole way. I even left my veil on the boat and they mailed it back to me. Captain Matthew had previously worked in catering so he was able to help let the caterers know what they needed to do / bring, etc.
A few things that were different from what I thought (though neither made me unhappy we'd chosen this venue, We'd choose it again if we had it to do all over again)
- The boat is far down the dock. We got married on a really hot day and had to truck ourselves and our stuff all the way down to the boat. Captain Matthew called in a favor and had the water taxi pick up our guests and bring them to the boat, which was great. Caterers, photographer, etc just may want to know / use that info ahead of time.
- The spaces to actually hold the ceremony are limited. You can do it in the "living room" which is covered, or on the bow, where we did it. Our wedding was small, 30 people total, so we were fine, but there's no true aisle you're walking down with either option. There's a roof deck too but it holds a max of 22 people and there's a wooden ladder to get up so not ideal in a wedding dress, at least for the procession. The bow did allow for lovely pictures, and if you're ok with no aisle, it works. Some guests watched from the roof deck.
I was able to get ready in a bedroom downstairs away from the guests without anyone seeing me.
Overall, I'd highly recommend it. Your wedding won't be like everyone else's and you get to cruise around Charleston harbor as well.
