Captain Iris was awesome! From the first moment I spoke to her about weddings in Maryland, I got the feeling that I had known her my entire life and she was a close friend helping me plan my wedding and not someone I had just found internet searching. I don't recall how many emails we shared in the month leading up to our wedding. She was most helpful with arranging the cake and suggesting a florist. Captain Iris drafted our ceremony and emailed us her draft for review. We put our own written twist into information provided by Captain Iris. We were greeted with hugs on our wedding day as if we were old friends, not strangers who had just met for the first time. Captain Iris let us bring on board a special bottle of Scotch for our wedding toast. We used our own glasses, while our guests used her flutes. We had a unique sand ceremony as well as a flower ceremony for our parents. Even though all of this was discussed ahead of time with Captain Iris, Captain Iris performed both in a manner that made this special for us; right down to our kiss. Captain Iris is a very interesting person and her knowledge of the Miles River, the Selina II and sailing in general added to the trip. Our wedding was very affordable for us and all it offered. The memories, PRICELESS! If we had to plan our wedding all over again, the only thing we regretted was not reserving the boat for an additional time period afterwards so we could enjoy the water and the sail. I was too nervous and emotional during the ceremony to really get into the spirit of the sail....but, plans are already being made to go back next year near our one year anniversary. I would most certainly recommend the Selina II and Captain Iris to anyone wishing to get married in a unique manner and on the water. We have been blessed by the experience and having Captain Iris perform our ceremony. We will always feel a special kindredship towards her!
