Elena and Jennifer were wonderful. The entire experience was fabulous. My wedding ran smoothly and without issue. They anticipated our every need. They had wonderful ideas and suggestions. They listen carefully to what we wanted and surpassed our expectation at every turn. It was a fun, carefree, phenomenal day! All of our guest said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. Everyone said how marvelous the food was! The crew on the ship was amazing. I could not have asked for a better day!

We booked Elite Yacht Charters for our Wedding Reception and we could not be happier with the service and overall experience. From the moment we first met our reception coordinator we knew it was the right fit. Jennifer and Elena were both a pleasure to work with - being extremely upbeat, sensitive to our needs and had an extreme attention to detail. Especially when it counted the most she made sure we were taken care of and all of the details were met so we would not need to stress about them. Jennifer did not hesitate to go the extra mile when our desert caterer did not make the delivery. She dropped everything and drove in D.C. traffic to pick up our cupcakes and deliver it right as we were taking off from port. Her commitment to making sure we were happy and satisfied only was the tip of the hospitality and customer service the entire staff gave us. There was not a moment of the entire event we were not blown away by the staff aboard. Marquita was the Restaurant Manager on board and she was amazing! From the time we stepped foot on the ship we were greeted from each and every staff member with a warm welcoming smile that we could feel and see resonate to each and every one of our guest. They took the time and had the patience to deal with every single one of our guest with joy and happiness that was truly a beautiful experience for everyone to participate in. Not only was the staff a pleasant surprise to have aboard, but the food was phenomenal. We could not give enough credit to the chefs who served us with excellent tasting food along with well-timed service. Elite Yacht Charters truly went above and beyond our expectations and will be not only spoken about in high regards for years to come, but also will be remembered by our families and friends as making the already very special day that much better.

4.9/5.0
My husband and I had our wedding onboard the National Elite Private Yacht sailing out of National Harbor, MD on August 30, 2014. First, I am incredibly critical and OCD, so a 4.9/5.0 is pretty much an off the charts review coming from me. Jennifer and Tegan were absolute perfection in assisting us with all the details and then running the show wedding day. They were responsive, helpful and accommodating from day one. We were (i.e I was) pretty high maintenance with special requests and they remained incredibly professional and made sure our requests were honored when permitted. There was only one request that could not be honored (hence the 4 1/2 stars for flexibility of the company).

We have zero complaints about any aspect of this wedding, and it was incredibly memorable for both us and our guests. Everyone loved the venue, and for those who did not want to commit 4 hours that evening, they were able to just attend the ceremony and leave before the ship set sail on the Potomac River. We had approximately 70 guests for the cruise and it was the perfect number. The ship could accommodate more, but I believe it neither felt empty nor crowded at this number. It did take quite a bit of time for everyone to get through the buffet, but nothing that was within the crews' control. This extended the time for our wedding events, so that we didn't finish the garter toss until about 30 minutes before we were back at dock! So it went by really fast for us and if I could offer one piece of advice for those who book this crew - add an extra hour of sail time and open bar if you want time to really celebrate with and enjoy your guests. It will be well worth it (though many non-party people did say it was just the right amount of time - so gauge your crowd).

It was a high-class wedding all around, and we have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about Jenn and Tegan and their fabulous boat crew. Fantastic memories!

Elite Yacht Charters responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your feedback! We’re so glad to hear you enjoyed your menu and service during your reception. Although you are dissatisfied with the time the ship arrived at National Harbor, it did arrive at the time originally agreed upon in your contract and the event coordinator was already on site to help the vendor set up, so that is why she was not accessible by her desk phone. We do always strive to arrive extra early for special events, but due to the large event taking place at National Harbor that day, it was not a possibility to arrive earlier than agreed upon. Thank you so much for choosing to share your special day with us!
