Yacht StarShip Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

Dusty Rose and Burgundy Waterfront Vow Renewal

“We wanted a venue where we could have a small ceremony and a reception that would feel quaint and personal. We wanted our guests to feel included, and connected to every aspect of our celebration. We chose Yacht StarShip because we had been on their ships in the past. We thought that cruising around downtown Tampa, where we live and raised our children, would be the perfect way to renew our vows. Their service was wonderful! All of our guests had a great time, and many of them told me how much they enjoyed the food and the cruise.” – Candace and Jaime

Boho Chic Navy and Rose Gold Waterfront Wedding

“A place that was unique and different that would represent us as a couple. We wanted a venue where we could have both the ceremony and the reception in the same place.

Jimmy and I drove down to Florida to see the Yacht Starship for the first time, and as soon as we drove up and met with Chris Dorroh we knew we had found our venue and wedding coordinator! Chris and the entire staff at the Yacht Starship blew us away! I can’t sing their praises enough.

We had less than six months to plan our wedding while my father was going through IV chemotherapy. Because of his illness, he was in and out of the hospital the entire time we were trying to plan everything, and Chris went out of her way to work with us in whatever we needed. It didn’t matter what time of day or day of the week, she was there every step of the way. I was only able to go back down one more time before the wedding and Chris made me feel so confident, comfortable and at ease with everything. We didn’t know if my father would be able to make it to the wedding, let alone be strong enough to walk me down the aisle until the day before. Chris made sure that everyone on board was up to speed and had a plan either way. Plus, you can’t beat having your photos taken while sailing on a yacht.” – Ashleigh and Jimmy

Glamorous Blush Pink, Gold, and White Waterfront Tampa Wedding

“We wanted a space that was intimate without having the feeling of being cramped in a small space. It was also important that the event was private, separating our family and guests from reality. We were looking for a venue that was original and would stand out from your average wedding. Marry Me Tampa Bay was our resource when researching possible venues. We found the Yacht StarShip on Marry Me Tampa Bay and loved it from our first meeting. Their staff was incredibly kind and accommodating to our requests. They helped us through the whole process step by step, which was very important to us because the whole wedding planning process can be overwhelming, and we are both very busy. Christine Dorroh was our wedding coordinator and was invaluable in making our dream wedding come to life.” – Angie and Phillip

“We hired the Yacht Starship because we wanted something different, and the fact that we can say we had a yacht wedding is just plain cool,” the bride gushed. “Not only was it a venue unlike any other, but the overall experience was what made everything that much more unique! I’d say we got a lot of bang for our buck with an amazing wedding coordinator and a team who really knew what they were doing.” -Marissa and Eric
