Weddings Testimonials

Yacht Starship was amazing. There is not one thing I would change in my wedding. The staff enjoy and love what they do and it shows. Everything about my experience with Yacht Starship was great, my wedding was originally scheduled for 4/18/2020 and had to be postponed due to COVID, Cheyanne was helpful and the change in date was easy and quick. Fast forward to my wedding day in august, they upgraded me to the bigger Yacht since it was available and to ensure social distancing. The whole day was amazing from start to finish. Thank you Yacht Starship for giving me the best wedding I could have ever imagined. Thank you to their amazing staff that felt like family by the end of the event. Last but not least thank you Cheyanne for answering my crazy long emails and for making our wedding unforgettable.

Espinosa/Kazen Wedding, August 2020

July 11 was nothing short of absolutely amazing, thanks to you and your team. You made the entire wedding planning process so easy and stress free. You were so amazing and I cannot thank you enough for everything you did for Zach and I. We have gotten the best feedback from our wedding talking about how smooth and beautiful that day was, thanks to you. When we came in and saw how perfect everything was and everything we have ever imagined it being, we were sooo happy. You and your team at Yacht Starship are wonderful and we cannot wait to be back for our anniversary!

Rudolf Wedding, July 2020

We re-planned the wedding in approximately 2 weeks because our original plans in a different city all got canceled. Starship was so easy to work with, flexible because so many things were changing with little notice, and had a coordinator to help us with everything we needed. They made our wedding seamless!

Knox & Dattilo Wedding, July 2020

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for making our wedding memorable!  The day was a blur (in a good way)!  The attention to detail was perfect, food was delicious and the drinks kept flowing!  Thank you so very much!

Able/Amrozowicz Wedding, June 2020

You and the service crew went above and beyond to make all of Sarah’s dreams come true! I truly appreciate all the small special touches and we couldn’t be happier!!

Scott/Varnadore Wedding, May 2020

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, was exactly as we requested. Christine and her team went above and beyond making our wedding not only memorable, but flat-out gorgeous. The captain, the DJ, the servers, the bartenders… top-notch.

Agobian Wedding, February 2020

First of all my wedding Coordinator, Eric Abril, was the best! This man got things done, answered all of my crazy questions over a year out, and even day of bustled my dress I mean he did everything for us and I am forever grateful for this man making my day come off without a hitch! The boat itself was so perfect! Food is always to die for, the DJ, Paul, was fantastic! All the staff was super friendly and ready to help! Highly recommend this venue, even if just for a dinner cruise one night!

Tighe Wedding, February 2020

Sheer perfection! If you aren’t a planner this is what you need, they took care of every single detail. The Captain Taylor drove amazing at one point we didn’t even know we were moving! The planner Eric was like family he took care of everything even bustled my dress. I look back a month later and can’t think of one thing that could have been better. 

Garcia Wedding, February 2020

The staff was super helpful and accommodating to our requests. More importantly, they helped with decoration, vendor and guest logistics so we didn’t need to worry about anything on our big day. The view was awesome! For the four hours of cruising along the canal and back to the Bay, we got to have the stunning sunset and city skyline behind us for pictures and for our guests to enjoy. Our wedding pictures turned out very cool and exciting. Last but not least, the price was very reasonable given their great services. Overall, we highly recommend this venue to host your wedding.

Mi/Lawton Wedding, December 2019

From our first introduction to the Yacht StarShip, it was “love” at first sight… The initial meeting with Chris & Lydia set the stage for an amazing and memorable affair.  Kudos to Eric & the Yacht StarShip staff who were phenomenal on Saturday.  The level of detail, professionalism and warmth exuded from everyone was incredulous, and not only were Greg & I ecstatic, our guests were raving about the food & the celebration, as well as the exceptional service they received from your staff.  Please also extend BIG KUDOS to DJ Ashley….  she was absolutely extraordinary and bought the life to the party!!

Pitt/Darrell Wedding, June 2019

Our wedding reception was gorgeous! Initially I met with Mrs. Lydia to book and she was so sweet and informative. Eric became my coordinator and he is phenomenal! Everything turned out exactly how I wanted and he and his staff were so flexible and patient with me during the process of planning. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff had the best attitude and customer service. The DJ was extremely open to the unique music we picked and let us plug in our playlists. It was a night I’ll never forget. Definitely book your weddings and/or receptions with them!

Tirogene Reception, June 2019

Our Wedding day was one to remember, not only for my husband and I, but for our guests as well. YachStarship’s crew assisted us with things we never even thought of (they mailed our wedding license!); neither myself nor my husband had to worry about anything the day of the wedding, 100% enjoyed! Our guests left wishing to go again!

Barkmand/Labruzzo Wedding, March 2019

Beginning with our first meeting with you last August and culminating with the wedding itself, our expectations were not only met but exceeded in every possible area.  Our wedding coordinator, Chris Dorroh, is a true professional in every sense of the word.  She is knowledgeable, meticulous and caring.  She did everything in her capabilities to make the planning, ceremony and reception a complete success.  Not one time were we ever told – “We won’t be able to do that”.  I cannot tell you how many of our guests have commented to us that this was probably the most fun wedding they have ever attended.  Everyone was extremely impressed with not only that yacht itself, but also the professionalism of the Captain and crew.  Everyone was mentioned to me by one person or another including Chris, the Captain, bartenders, servers, ship’s crew, boarding agents, DJ and photographers just to name a few. My wife and I would like to thank all of you for all that you did to make this wedding an event that we all will treasure for the rest of our lives.

Brandt/Shuttleworth Wedding, March 2019

Our wedding was Amazing! Chris Dorroh and Ali did an amazing job. Exceeded all expectations.

Harris Wedding, March 2019

I cannot stress enough how friendly and amazing the staff is. From the planner and management to the serves and DJ, everything was PERFECT! I had the most magical night of my life. I think it really made it even more special because they were so dedicated to making my vision come to life.

Suzan, Engagement Party, March 2019

Dan and I want to thank you so very much for an absolutely incredible day!  I feel that I am going to run out of adjectives when describing how perfect everything was!  From our first meeting with Laura, to the moment we had to leave the boat after our wedding cruise, every detail was perfect.  Christine and Jenny are absolutely amazing, you made our day spectacular and worry-free – and I mean WORRY FREE!  The way Chris and Laura guided us through the planning process was expert and exciting, you made the process fun and made sure we didn’t forget the slightest detail.  The fact that you were always available any time we had a question was so appreciated.  The Wedding was an experience we (and our guests) will never forget.  Our guests could not stop talking about the excellence of the crew, the yacht, the food, the music, and the overall experience!  We would tell anybody who is trying to decide on a venue for their wedding to absolutely go with Yacht StarShip! What a beautiful, beautiful day! We just cannot thank you and the entire crew enough!

Geiken Wedding, January 2019

The rehearsal dinner was perfection at every level.  The room was beautifully decorated by Eric, it truly took my breath away.  Being in the Pilot room was amazing and the wait staff couldn’t have been more attentive. The food was delicious.  Most importantly-everyone had a great time. I really want to thank you for your attentiveness from the very beginning. It’s not easy planning an event in a city that you’re not very familiar with from so far away, but you were amazing.  This was such an important event for me and my family and I can understate how well cared for I felt.
