Skyline Princess Cruises operates sightseeing tours around Manhattan. It is also available for parties and events including weddings. A Skyline Princess Cruise yatch wedding is a different type of reception since it offers great views of the city, and when it is party time who can beat an open air yatch party with the lights of New York City all around you?
This was my first experience as a photographer on a yatch wedding. After a rainy morning that threatened to spoil the fun, the weather cleared for a glorious afternoon and wedding party and the guests boarded the yatch.
The ceremony took place on the upper deck of the yatch. It was a cool wedding ceremony officiated by the Captain of Skyline Princess Cruise yatch. After the traditional vows, there was interesting sand ceremony.
One of the challenges of wedding photography on a yatch is limited space, but it turned out fine. During the evening, we had some nice photo sessions with the lights of Manhattan and the bridges in the background.
Later on the upper deck of Skyline Princess was used as the dance floor and the wedding guests had a lot of fun dancing. The party ended with sparklers after the boat came back to dock.
