Sunset Wedding Cruises aboard the Schooner Serenity

Schooner Serenity Weddings are here!

Schooner Serenity Weddings are now a real thing!  Imagine your wedding aboard an authentic Tall Ship as you cruise down the scenic Kalamazoo River and then out on to Lake Michigan for breathtaking views.

There is no better way to enjoy a full panoramic and dramatic view of a Michigan sunset. We will perform your ceremony on the calm waters of the River, as your two-hour cruise begins, then you'll celebrate for the rest of the ride.  Super casual, super fun!

Looking for a walk down the aisle, too? Then we'll perform your ceremony on dry land, in front of an adorable mini lighthouse. Once the cruise is we will sign your marriage license and capture some candid photos of you and your guests enjoying the ride.
