Wedding Blog: Yasmine and Duane

Yasmine and Duane were our first wedding of the 2021 wedding season, and we were so happy to finally have weddings and guests back onboard our boats! Prior to boarding Yasmine and Duane took some stunning photos along the Boston Harborwalk area. 

When it came time to welcome guests onto the Valiant, we brought them to the upper deck where the ceremony would take place. This ceremony spot, featuring a gorgeous garland by Artistic Blossoms, really comes to life when the boat departs and the ceremony backdrop becomes the beautiful Boston skyline! Yasmine and Duane’s ceremony was especially sweet as they exchanged vows not only between themselves, but also with their very sweet daughter.

The ceremony ends with a kiss and we bring our newlyweds downstairs to the bow of the boat for a moment alone and for some stunning photos, while we invite guests to the lower deck for cocktail hour. Soon guests would return to the upper deck to find it completely transformed for the reception.

The tables were adorned with the most stunning shades of purple, from the linens done by Johnny Burke Catering and Events to the elegant centerpieces done by Artistic Blossoms. As guests enjoyed their dinner they were treated to a beautiful sunset and stunning views as they cruised throughout the Boston Harbor.

After dinner and a few heartfelt toasts by loved ones, Yasmine and Duane took to the dance floor for their cake cutting and first dance. Their guests then joined them on the dance floor, and danced the night away!

An enormous thank you to our incredible vendor team that made all of our couple’s dreams come true!
