Tuesday, February 14, 2012, Kristen & David tied the knot on Valentine’s Day at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Aboard the tall ship Californian, the two said “I do” during their dockside wedding ceremony at 2:14pm on 2/14. Romantic? I think so.
The 40 guests were seated on deck in white chairs with white ribbons with the ceremony taking place on the bow. The ship was elegantly decorated with white roses and the wedding beautifully coordinated by Sharon Cole of A Dream Wedding. I was surprised at how much space was available. We could have easily seated 60 guests at a dockside wedding.
This was not your average wedding. Following the ceremony the newlyweds and their guests headed out to sea for a 2 ½ hour sail with Captain Chris Welton. The bride, groom, and guests rolled up their sleeves and joined the crew in sailing the ship—tuxedos and all.
Congratulations to the happy couple and we wish you all the happiness in the world! Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day.
