Our very dear friends Patrick and Karen were married aboard Katherine Jane last night. After days of frightful rain and winds (and fretting on everyone’s part), we timed it perfectly with sunbreaks and dramatic clouds for the sunset ceremony. Their children were involved in the ceremony and the pastor had the marvelous idea that he would sit on the windlass and have the bride & groom facing everyone, which was really neat. It was beautiful.
There were 30 people onboard and I was shocked at how uncrowded that felt. I thought that number would be on the high end of comfortable and that we might be packed shoulder-to-shoulder for the ceremony, but there was lots of extra room. After the ceremony, we cruised around and had a great party. Congratulations to the newlyweds!!!
