Waterways Cruises will make your wedding an unforgettable experience – with the Seattle skyline and lakes as the perfect backdrop for your celebration.
Waterways’ three beautifully appointed yachts offer unique venues for your wedding, complete with the event planning, the ceremony, an elegant reception and the ambiance of the ever-changing views. Our yachts (The Emerald Star, The Olympic Star and The Destiny) accommodate up to 200 guests and provide luxurious interior dining salons and outdoor decks for comfortable cruising year-round. We cruise the route of your choice, positioning the yacht in the most perfect location on the water to capture the iconic Space Needle, or Mount Rainier or scenic shorelines for the background of your wedding photography.
Waterways’ catering team has extensive experience in preparing and serving gourmet culinary delights aboard our yachts. Choose from a large selection of buffet or plated dining menus, or ask our Executive Chef to customize your menu for your unique preferences.
Our professional wedding planner will help you through every step of menu selections, decor choices, selection of flower arrangements, specialty wedding cakes and desserts and entertainment, and any special request that you may have to make your wedding unforgettable. We have created a variety of wedding packages that offer a range of options and pricing to fit your requirements and your budget.
Waterways’ yachts are perfect not only for large occasions, but also for smaller bridal events such as rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, bachelor parties and relaxing family brunch cruises the day after the wedding.
"Thank you so much for the absolutely GORGEOUS wedding my husband and I enjoyed at Waterways! The boat was beautiful, the food was very delicious, and I'm so glad we made the choice to go with Waterways Cruises for our wedding. Over one year later, we still look at our pictures with fond memories." ~Jessica and Adam’s Wedding
"It was such a pleasure to welcome friends and family aboard the Emerald Star. The staff was beautifully prepared. The boat was spotless and classy. The food was incredible and everything ran like clockwork. The ceremony itself was truly memorable. Captain Jim’s remarks were so thoughtful, appropriate and moving. Over and over guests from each generation commented on how meaningful the ceremony was. You managed to deliver exactly what we had hoped the day would be." ~Robyn and John’s Wedding
