about the big wave yacht
The Big Wave is a beautiful 71′ Hatteras Yacht currently docked in New Orleans near Southern Yacht Club but available across the Gulf Coast. Indulge in a sunset cruise or charter The Big Wave for a party cruise, overnight stay (overnight accommodations for up to 11 guests available!), a catered event or an intimate elopement. The Big Wave can host up to 30 people for a sunset cruise or charter; if docked the Big Wave can host up to 50 guests.
The bow of The Big Wave is the perfect setting for a romantic vow exchange. Here, Blooms Botanica created a lush garden vibe of luxurious, tropical flowers and Glo Events added pillar and taper candles amongst the colorful blooms.
Brittney is wearing a sleek, polished satin gown, available at Pearl’s Place Bridal, featuring a full corset bodice and a skirt with a high slit trimmed with pearls. Detached puff, tulle sleeves with shimmering pearl and seed bead cuffs add a touch of whimsy to the look. A gold, floral motif crown, also available at Pearl’s Place serves as her bridal headpiece.
De’Zheon is wearing an ivory tuxedo with black satin-trimmed shawl collar from John’s Tuxedos and Suits.
Faces of Virtue Beauty Studio styled a soft, elegant updo and a natural makeup look and Passport Polish put the finishing touches on her look with their long press-on nails in the color Puerto Rico.
Blush and ivory vow books, available at Lionheart Prints, are the perfect keepsake to remember your profession of love.
For the on-board reception, De’Zheon changes into a Heather Grey Lenox Tuxedo with a satin-trimmed notch lapel available at John’s Tuxedos and Suits.
Instead of a traditional pocket square, Blooms Botanica created an on-trend, floral alternative.
Brittney is wearing a shimmering Art Deco-inspired gown with opulent beadwork from Pearl’s Place Bridal.
Faces of Virtue Beauty Studio transformed her hair into a low pony tail with pearl and rhinestone hair pins.
The top deck of The Big Wave has the perfect place to treat your guests to a decadent charcuterie table. Beneath a canopy of sheer white draping from True Value Rental and greenery and suspended blooms by Blooms Botanica, The Magnola Company curated a delightful selection of cheeses, meats, and sweets. Glo Events added dramatic draping to complement the color palette of the presentation. Hand painted oyster shells by L. Fontaine Design note the cheese selections for guests.
This two-tier buttercream cake by Gambino’s Bakery is the perfect confection for an intimate event. The cake features a floral icing motif in a single ivory tone bringing to mind a look of elegant embroidery.
The cake sits among lush flowers by Blooms Botanica. Three gold floral taper candles and elegant draping by Glo Events complete the setting.
What could be more romantic than a sweetheart table with a dramatic sunset on your wedding day? White rounded triangle salad plates sit atop round grey dinner plates and Splash glasses and Matte Gold Flatware, all from True Value Rental sit amongst colorful arrangements by Blooms Botanica. Each seat is marked with a hand painted oyster shell by L. Fontaine Design. Glo Events styled this table with romantic candles, soft blue linen and bold satin napkins. White Bellini Chairs, also from True Value Rental complete the elegant look.
