Wedding M/V Skansonia | Joe and Mona I remember when I first met with Mona and Joe to talk about their wedding I couldn't believe they told me they had rented the M/V Skansonia, an old retired ferry with lots of history. What a cool venue! And the potential of having the ceremony itself outside with the Seattle skyline at night as the backdrop! What an awesome idea! As with all weddings, weather is a factor. And the truth was it rained all week before the wedding. But, on the actual wedding day the clouds parted and the sun came out. What a beautiful and clear night for an outdoor wedding!
