Imagine sailing along the water with the glowing sun and skyline as your backdrop while you say “I do”. Not only are wedding cruises incredibly romantic, but they also often come with their own wedding packages to include everything you could need on your special day. Here are a few of the best wedding cruises in Maryland.
Spirit of Baltimore
As part of Spirit Cruises, the Spirit of Baltimore allows you to exchange vows along the Patapsco River. With seating for up to 450 guests, their 119-foot ship features observation decks along with climate control for the cooler months. Whether you want to host your ceremony or your entire wedding onboard, Spirit of Baltimore can accommodate engagement parties, bachelorette parties, and bridal luncheons as well. They also offer a variety of wedding packages such as dinner and lunch packages, onboard ceremony, a premiere reception and more.
Wedding on the Bay
Say your “I do’s” aboard a private yacht charter while sailing through the Chesapeake Bay. Weddings on the Bay offers a gorgeous venue for your wedding ceremony, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, and more. You’ll have your choice of the vessel – all offering spacious and flexible floor plans along with catering kitchens and full-service bars. Their homeports include Baltimore Inner Harbor and Annapolis City Dock. You’ll also be given your own personal wedding coordinator to help guide you through the process.
The Black-Eyed Susan
Originally built in 1986, The Black-Eyed Susan is reminiscent of the time when luxurious riverboat cruises sailed the waters. The ship is certified for up to 149 guests as well as 20 additional crew members and staff. Based out of Havre de Grace, it navigates both the Susquehanna River and Upper Chesapeake Bay. Along with its Victorian-style upper deck, it also features a climate-controlled Main Salon with an oak bar, audio system, and foodservice. The Black-Eyed Susan also offers hand-picked food for you and your guests, open to any special preferences you may need as well.
Sail Selina II
Designed after the classic New England Crosby Cat, Sail Selina II was originally built in 1926 in Greenport, NY. The ship’s current Coast Guard Licensed Captain is also granddaughter to the original owners. This wedding cruise is perfect for those looking for a smaller, yet romantic wedding on the water. Docked in St. Michaels, Sail Selina II creates a personalized nautical wedding complete with photography, video, live bagpipes, custom music program, and more to treasure for years to come.
