St. Augustine Boat Elopement


M + T’s St. Augustine boat elopement was amazing! Despite our regular (like, you can time them) afternoon storms in the summer we hit the sweet spot of moody skies and blue water without the downpour. 

The Venue

This sailboat charter is run by St. Augustine Sailing and features two beautiful dining areas (one inside and out), kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a super fun hammock on the front of the boat that you can lay on while you soak in the sun. The bedrooms are split between the two hulls of the boat which is perfect if you want to get ready separately from your partner so you can surprise them with a first look!

The marina is easy to get to, just off of A1A before the A1A bridge if you are coming from St. Augustine. Look for Pelican Point Vilano Beach and go past the guard house.

The Day

M+T got ready for their St. Augustine boat elopement below deck in the surprisingly spacious bathrooms before heading up for their vows, photos, and a picnic spread set up by The Honey Picnic Co. After exchanging vows we hung out on the ship taking photos and sipping on champagne. Of course we had to do a celebratory champagne pop over the side of the ship! M+T even spent some time relaxing in the hammock while enjoying the gorgeous water views.

Once they were ready to settle in for dinner and cake we headed back to the covered outdoor table on the back of the ship and M+T got to enjoy some more quiet moments enjoying themselves and celebrating become Mr. and Mrs.!

My name is Jessica and I am the dreamer behind Jessica Lauren Photography! When I’m not behind the camera I love spending time with my dog hiking, out on my paddle board, or getting some quality time with my husband while we explore local events. I love spending time on the coast no matter which side of the U.S. I’m on and I’m always chasing that perfect sunset.
