Real Wedding - Michelle and Cory on the Open Seas in California

It's really tough, when writing about a wedding that takes place on board a Hornblower Yachtnot to get carried away with seafaring puns. Seriously - you try writing a call to action about a yachting wedding without using the term "all aboard"! The other thing that's super tough is wading through a 130-photo strong album by the incredible Brit Jaye and sitting at one's desk, gazing out the window and dreaming of romance and adventure on the high seas!

Michelle and Cory married on the Renown, where the staff worked hard to set up all of the décor bride Michelle had given them for her vintage nautical wedding theme - think blue mason jars, lush white and cream roses and marine motifs such as fish and starfish! Add to that a touch of whimsy with rubber duck cake toppers and we're in love. 

In a cute twist, Michelle and her bridesmaids arrived first and hid out below deck, so she got to watch her groom and his groomsmen arrive and see Cory's Mom help them with their boutonnieres, while guests were each given a glass of Champagne by the Hornblower staff to enjoy before the ceremony.

Check out the rest of the adorable details from this maritime marriage!
