Join us for a little tour of one of our beautiful yachts, the RegentSea.

St. Patrick’s day is upon us and this holiday always makes me reflect on some of the great elements that some of our Irish guests have incorporated into their events.
Being in Los Angeles, our guests come from different cultural backgrounds and we are fortunate to learn about a variety of traditions throughout the planning process. People love to personalize their parties with family recipes, décor, and music that celebrates their unique culture. Over the years, we have had the pleasure to try great food and enjoy great new music, but I always get excited when I find out a guest is Irish and wants to have an Irish band, or bagpipes, at their party. In fact, it makes me want to do a little jig!
Irish music is so rich, lively and easy to sing along and march to. Daniel and I both have fond memories of Irish music at FantaSea. The Fenians are an Irish band out of Southern California whose music is traditionally Irish, but also incorporates elements of rock, folk, bluegrass and jazz. A couple of years ago, they played a wedding reception in the Yacht Club and brought the house down with incredible energy. I, of course, bought the CD and can often be found dancing around the house singing “Drunken Sailor.” Doesn’t every mom?
I also remember a great party we put on with a six-piece bagpipe band. Daniel led them onto the yacht while they were playing marching music. To this day, he still says he would have marched with them anywhere and I believe him!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all from the FantaSea family and I leave you with an Irish toast:
There are good ships
And there are wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships, are friendships,
And may they always be.

FantaSea has been an all Macintosh office since day one and I completely believe that when clients come to our office, the Mac lovers are immediately impressed. It’s like our computers give us instant “coolness.” One such couple is Ellie and Nate. I love them and cannot wait for their wedding this September. Ellie is a wedding cake baker and Nate has his own CompuTech store, they are both Mac enthusiasts and so sweet. I think they may have decided to book their wedding with us before they even saw the yachts!
They are getting married on the RegentSea in the fall and I am already hard at work to make it as magical and as perfect as their love for each other. I can’t wait!
The wedding industry is very competitive – we realize you are going to spend a great deal of money and time planning and you want to know it’s going to be perfect. If having a Mac on my desk gives me a little leg up on the competition… I am fine with that. You might say comparing us to other yacht charters is like comparing Apples to Oranges. Smile.
