Each couple’s love story is special. Whether they’ve been together for six months or six years, no two are the same. With St. Augustine Sailing’s new customizable wedding packages, couples can create an event as unique as they are. And with the nation’s most historic and beautiful city as a backdrop, it just doesn’t get any better.
This family-owned and -operated luxury charter business is a one-stop-shop — with a variety of packages and enhancements available, the ceremony of your dreams is just a call away.
“As someone whose love story blossomed on the water, I know the magic that can happen,” said Rose Ann Points, owner, captain and broker at St. Augustine Sailing. “I fell in love at sea, I raised my children at sea and we see other couples create amazing connections on board our boats. It was only natural for us to want to help couples create the perfect experience for this milestone event. You want an intimate sunset elopement? Done. A yachtie-themed wedding with friends and family? We can do that! My staff and I are here to make sure your day is nothing but smooth seas.”
St. Augustine Sailing has crafted three new wedding packages for their prospective couples. The Arbor Knot package features an intimate ceremony at sea for just the bride and groom or with a few of their closest family and friends. The Lover’s Knot package offers a dockside service on a luxury yacht, designed for an elopement or smaller ceremony. And for larger parties, the Marriage Knot package can accommodate wedding parties of up to 30 guests at the dock, with the picturesque marina as a backdrop.
Packages include an officiant, a small bouquet and boutonniere, self-serve sparkling wine and a cake. Couples can personalize their service with enhancements such as a photographer, personal chef, sailing experience and even an overnight stay on board.
“All of our enhancements were conceptualized to add to the beauty of the ceremony,” said Points. “One of my personal favorites would have to be the acoustic guitar because if you’ve never experienced live music at sea, it’s absolutely divine. My other favorite is the private couples charter with brunch the day after the ceremony. It’s a lovely way for the bride and groom to relax, reflect and really soak in some quality time together.”
St. Augustine Sailing is a luxury adventure experience that offers a variety of sailing excursions. They offer private charters that can be customized to create a unique experience. Popular options include private chef-prepared meals, premium beer and wine upgrades, and overnight adventures.
St. Augustine Sailing also offers sailing lessons and membership in SailTime, a club that allows members to rent a boat at franchises around the country.
