“Dear Susan,

We never imagined we could have our dream wedding (especially with only two months to plan!) until we met you. You made the impossible a reality for us and gave us the best wedding we could have imagined. Thank you so much for being our planner, friend, sometimes our therapist (haha), always our advocate, and often our older sister, making sure everything goes our way.

Setting up a wedding is so complicated! We had tried so many venues and so many other companies when we started planning, we thought a yacht in Newport Beach would break our budget. We were shocked when we ran the numbers to find that Electra would be a better place for a much more beautiful wedding! Now, we still have our savings for our marriage without compromising at all on our gorgeous wedding. One thing that no other venue could offer, though, was you.

We feel so blessed to have walked into your office. Ever since the day we met you, our wedding stress dropped and we were finally excited. Thank you so much.”

 

Love,
Chiryze and Mike

Susan,

We wanted to write and thank you for our wonderful staff and time at our wedding Friday November 4, 2016. As you stated the weather and sunset would be beautiful. Everyone from the staff on the boat to the photographer, to the DJ, were amazing and remembered every item that we requested. Angelica was fantastic in assisting Kim in getting her dress on, helping with her shoes, and necklace. She made sure we were on time, had our dinner at our sweetheart table (it was even hot), kept our glasses full and made sure we knew that was going on.

As the grand finale she made sure we had a piece of wedding cake from all three layers. She worked with us all evening to make sure everything was going smoothly, all with a smile on her face. She even helped Kim make sure her bustle was pulled up so no one would step on it.

The staff kept everyone’s glasses full, helped people with their plates, served coffee, and made sure everyone had their needs met. All of our guests have commented on how wonderful the food was and that it was cooked, hot, and made sure everyone had enough to eat. Angelica made sure our special food guests had their items and somehow even knew who these people were. The bartenders we heard were great guys and made sure everyone had the beverages of their choice. We heard from all our guests the staff were super and pleasant. All of the staff had smiles on their faces.

At the end of the evening all of our items were packed up nicely and we were allowed to say goodbye to our guests without feeling rushed and the staff was able to get their clean up done without being obtrusive. Again, we both want to thank you and your staff for making our day so wonderful. Too bad traffic was so bad that a few of our guests missed the boat. This cannot be emphasized enough that Friday traffic was awful…

We will recommend your services to everyone and your staff should be commended for their kindness, patience and professionalism.

“Thanks to Electra Cruises,

Our wedding day was literally the best day of our life. I spent months worrying that something that something was going to go wrong (like every bride does), and the whole thing went without a hitch – it was an absolutely perfect night.

What we loved most about Electra Cruises was that they make planning your wedding easier than I could’ve imagined possible. Everything we were looking for was already so cleverly consolidated. All of the chairs, tables, linens, and furniture were already on the boat.

Each boat has a kitchen, so you don’t need to look for a caterer. They often hold events where couples who’ve booked with them can meet all of their vendors all in one place, and taste test potential menu items for your wedding day. During this event, we found our officiant, cake people, and photographer, and couldn’t have been happier with our decision.

 

Boat – The Newport Princess
Day of coordinator – Star
Wedding Planner – Susan P
Officiant – Phillip
Photographer – C9 Photography (Roy)
Cake – Cinderella Cakes
Florist – No florist, we kept it simple and it was still so beautiful!
DJ – No DJ! We had a live band, and it sounded great on the boat.

Susan kept us organized, and Star kept the night running smoothly. They let us visit our boat multiple times prior to the wedding so that we could measure and plan our decorations easily. They gave us enough time prior to our wedding to set up our decorations, and it seemed the whole wedding was cleaned up with magic at the end.

To top it all off, the boats are all so, so beautiful. We had a wedding themed after Disney’s The Princess and The Frog, and the New Port Princess seemed to come right out of the movie. Speaking of which, the business was named after the Electra boat, which was featured in Marilyn Monroe’s Some Like It Hot. (fun fact 🙂 )

I would easily recommend Electra Cruises to any couple planning their wedding – it was a fun, easy, unique, and personal experience for us – and I hope it will be for you too!

Thank you for all your help in making our wedding 'stress-free'. We always leave your office with a huge smile on our face — knowing that everything is being taken care of.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation children and their families were treated to a very special night, where they were able to set aside the burden of their medical issues for a while. The laughter and excitement that resonated throughout the yacht was magical.
