Consider a nautical wedding!  Imagine walking down the aisle alongside the sun, glittering against the rippling waves. The fresh air and gentle breeze tickling your senses. Rich hues of purple and orange paint the perfect backdrop, as the sun sets against the water. You’re glowing, there’s a sparkle in your eye and you say I do. Finally, the day turns to night and the stars electrify the sky with the Toronto city lights, as you share your first dance as a married couple.

When you have a wedding at Mariposa Cruises, your boat is your oyster! Religious or not, big or small, we do it all! Getting married on a boat allows you to customize your wedding to represent your personal values and preferences, whatever the theme or style may be. Many newlyweds are keeping up with the trend of getting married in unconventional venues, such as a boat. However, we offer all elements of a traditional or non-traditional wedding, even a blend of both! We provide our clients with a full-service event planning team that is efficient and cost effective. They take care of all the details from décor to entertainment, food and beverage, photography, music and anything else your heart desires.

3. Smaller & More Intimate 

When choosing a wedding venue, location, style and proximity to guests are very important. Having your wedding on a boat always allows you to stay within close range to your family and friends, whether you’re hosting 50 people or over 500. The outer decks provide comfortable seating arrangements that give guests the ability to easily mingle while enjoying the scenery. Our venue allows you to control the type of experience you want your guest to have, so that you can spend more time on the dance floor or chatting with your guests.

4.  Feels Like You’re on Vacation 

Having your wedding on a boat feels like a destination wedding without the hassle! You don’t need to limit your number of guests, worry about finding accommodations or an expensive plane ticket to feel like you’re leaving the city. Why head to the tropics when you can experience the lush greenery of the Toronto Islands? The thrill of setting sail makes your guests feel like they are going on an excursion, even though they are just experiencing Toronto in a new way. On a Toronto cruise you can instantly be transported from the hustle and bustle of city life to a peaceful escape in minutes! During your voyage, guests can explore Toronto’s magnificent lakefront, waterways and lagoons . Plus, it’s a great way for out-of-town guests to experience Canada’s largest city.

5. An Outdoor Wedding with all the Benefits of Being Indoor

The appeal of an outdoor wedding, with the inherent beauty only nature can provide is undeniable. However, spacious outdoor venues in Toronto’s downtown core are hard to find. Especially, those that can host a large number of guests, pre-wedding gatherings, a wedding ceremony and reception at the same place. At Mariposa Cruises, our vessels can facilitate all of this, while providing you with open, airy decks and private interior spaces. Better yet, you won’t have to worry about logistics and added expenses of transporting your guests to different venues. Enjoy your wedding ceremony in the natural light, with a picturesque backdrop and end the night by dancing under the stars!
