Something Blue

From sprawling lakes to rustic rivers, New England’s gorgeous waterways are the perfect wedding backdrop.

Ship

Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships
Boston

Ocean spray, salty air, flapping sails—it doesn’t get any more nautical than a summer wedding aboard a Liberty Tall Ship. Choose between two fabulous vessels: the Liberty Clipper, a 125-foot-tall schooner with room for 110 guests; and the Liberty Star, a sleek 67-foot-tall ship that can fit up to 39 revelers. Keep the seafaring theme going with menu options like a catered clambake, and photos of the bride and groom at the steering wheel. Of course, no reception would be complete without music, and both vessels can accommodate DJs and small bands to keep the floating party going after sunset. May we suggest boat shoes for boogying down?
