With a large chunk of their guest list and their two sons, Vanessa Kreckel and Lauren Martin went on an adventure on Casco Bay, off the coast of Portland, Maine, before tying the knot the following day.
Vanessa put her design skills to work, crafting the labels adhered to the gable box lunches. Inside each was a sandwich, a bag of chips, pasta salad, and a cookie, all from Aurora Provisions deli in Portland.
"It was a super fun relaxing way to kick off the weekend," Vanessa says. "It was a really great way for our guests to meet each other and interact by being stuck at sea for four hours! We drank Bloody Marys and had an amazing time."
"We took the family on a whale watch in Provincetown on vacation in the summer of 2013," Vanessa recalls of a previous excursion. "We all got passes for the 1 percent club to come back for a free trip since we saw no whales!" Thankfully, they had better luck this time around.
