Getting married on a boat? On your 30th Birthday? Why the heck not! It poured down with rain the entire day and no joke, it cleared the moment Ocean walked down the pier with her Dad which was pretty damn sweet! Enjoy this super unique Wedding Day – we love it!

We had a lot of friends we wanted to invited, but didn’t want the drama that lots of guests bring. So kept the planning & structure around our wedding very loose to accommodate. It was an awesome way to approach things because it set the expectation for our guests that it was low key and they could just be themselves and have fun. As a result, they dressed wildy, drunk without inhibitions and danced until we closed the bar. Perfect.
The boat – Ambrosia – has been in the family for 3 generations. We were fortunate enough to sail her around the Pacific together and here Nic decided here that he wanted to marry Ocean. It only seemed fitting to continue the journey where it all began. Even better, it meant we could have the party at our local yacht club too.
What was a cool moment and what you loved about the day? Ocean – it will be hard to beat our 10-piece New Orleans Brass Band – Richter City Rebels. Their whole set made my day. Nic – the moment when every started to arrive at the ceremony and it dawned on me it was all going ahead. Pretty amazing.
