Arrive In Style
Chartering a seaplane is a unique Adirondack wedding idea to give the day another special touch. While helicopter charters are used for luxury weddings across the world, there’s only a few places in the Adirondacks where you can arrive at the wedding in a seaplane. Arrive in truly regal style, with your guests waiting at shore and the plane softly landing beside your St. Williams wedding venue.
Make your special day even more unique by chartering The Avery Mae and arriving in unmatched style. Life’s most important days should always be full of unique memories, and there’s little to rival the exclusive feeling of arriving at the St. Williams dock in a luxury Elco Electric Launch. The Avery Mae can accommodate up to 10 passengers so you may want to include your whole wedding entourage, just your bridesmaids or perhaps you and your father enjoying one last private time together before he gives you away.
A seaplane charter or an Elco Electric Launch charter is an experience that befits the auspiciousness of your wedding day, offering a luxury and exclusivity that can elevate any Adirondack wedding.
