A Parisian Wedding on the Seine
It is no secret that I love water and boats of any kind or shape. So naturally I think that a party or a wedding on the river Seine would be one of the most romantic weddings imaginable.
I had the pleasure of meeting Monsieur Christian Gonnard, Captain and owner of of the yacht Kitikae, and Parisian boat concierge at our networking soiree at Yachts de Paris.
His boat, the Kitikae is an absolutely lovely old wooden motor boat built in the 1920's. She is available for charter on the Seine, inside Paris and out, for as many as 12 passengers for short day-cruises and for over-night cruises for 2 passengers. It is equipped with a very functional kitchen, a commodious state room complete with bathroom and toilet, and a second stateroom for the crew. On deck, guests can lounge on teak chairs or dine on a teak table shaded by a canapy.
I think it would be absolutely fabulous for either a small welcome party or rehearsal dinner or for a honeymoon!!! But Christian’s favorite “cruises” are the engagment cruises. The groom charters the boat for a Paris by
Night cruise or a sunset cruise complete with a gourmet meal and Champagne. Then just as the Kitikae makes its way under one of the famous Parisian bridges, the couple is showered with the petals of 1000 roses as the groom proposes her hand in marriage! Now that is what I call romance….If the Kitikae is too small for your group, Christian will find the perfect boat or yacht for you. He will help you “navigate” the many, many options and ensure that you hire a boat that is appropriate, safe and professional for your event. If once you find the boat of your dreams, you still need certain services such as a caterer, florist, audio-visual services, music or anything else, he will help put it in place.
