We searched for the perfect intimate reception setting. Native Philadelphians and our love for water we found our perfect place. The Freedom Elite provided such an intimate unique setting. The City skyline and backdrop as we sailed was amazingly breathtaking. Sailing under our cities bridges was a unique experience at sunset. Our Wedding planning was a breeze and Taylor was wonderfully organized. It was a very pleasant and easy experience from start to finish with out wedding details. Food and drinks were delicious. The service was perfect during our reception. Our pictures were absolutely stunning with such a beautiful backdrop. Our guests are still talking about it. Awesome experience.

From the very beginning we knew we didn't want to spend a ton of time planning the event and having the preset packages from the company really helped us with that. Taylor(our wedding coordinator) was great from the moment we first started working together to the last minute of our wedding cruise. She truly handled everything and was very genuine and approachable. Having both the ceremony and the reception on the boat was a very unique experience for us and our guests, who are still talking about it. We got to enjoy a beautiful sail and the Philadelphia skyline in the background. Food and drinks were great as well. The Dj had the party going until the very end. If you are still thinking about hosting your wedding with the Spirit of Philadelphia have no doubts! You will be well taken care of and your guests will remember the unique event they attended for years to come.

"We wanted a unique and intimate wedding with our closest friends and family. Since we both love the water, having our ceremony and reception aboard the Freedom Elite was the best decision we made. The coordinators and staff were professional, responsive, and a dream to work with! The planning process was smooth from start to finish, and our wedding on the water was perfect! The food was outstanding, and our DJ kept the guests dancing and on their feet. With beautiful views of Philadelphia from every part of the yacht, we gave our guests a night to remember." Wish we could get married every year, and have it on a yacht!"

"Our wedding day was simply amazing, filled with love, laughter, family and friends, great music and dancing, and the most delicious food and beverages EVER!! The Freedom Elite was decorated so warm and exquisite, definitely beyond what I had expected. The view of the Delaware River was gorgeous and set the perfect ambiance for our day. Everyone in attendance was so ecstatic and entertained to the fullest. The staff aboard were very friendly, professional, and accommodating. My wedding coordinator, Robyn Schwartz, was the best coordinator anyone can ask for. Our wedding flowed so beautifully without any glitches. Family and friends are still elated about our wedding day. We are so thankful, blessed, and pleased we chose the Freedom Elite Private Yacht for our venue. "

"When my husband & I started planning our wedding, we wanted it to be an intimate memorable event in a unique venue that was gay-friendly and having a wedding on the Freedom Elite Private Yacht definitely fit that description!  We had a total of 65 people at the wedding which was large enough to invite all our important people and small enough to still feel intimate.  Being married by the Captain was a very special touch and you feel like a VIP cruising along the Delaware River on your private yacht.  Amanda and Robyn were spectacular event coordinators and made sure everything went smoothly, and when small issues arise (as they always do) they were able to work it all out quickly and effortlessly.  Our plated dinner was fabulous as was our cake from Bredenbeck's Bakery, and with our premium open bar, the guests kept the bartender hopping (a big shout out to our bartender Chandler who was excellent).  Finally, this venue gave us the opportunity to take very unique once-in-a-lifetime photos.  We absolutely got an intimate, unique, memorable, gay-friendly wedding, so much so that our guests are still talking about it, even a year afterwards!"

"One of our first dates was at Penn's Landing, so when it came time to find a wedding venue we knew we wanted something unique and on the water! Our wedding was amazing. It was the most perfect day in every way! I would highly recommend getting married on the Freedom Elite to anyone looking for a great, intimate wedding."
