Forget the destination wedding, 2022 is set to make experiential weddings the new standard in luxury event planning. Northrop & Johnson, the leader in luxury yachting and lifestyle, is announcing the launch of its “JZ Wedding Experience” in collaboration with elite Wedding Planner Jennifer Zabinski of JZ Events. As venues across the globe book up from unprecedented demand, couples searching for intimate, breathtaking and unique experiences won’t be landlocked as the luxury superyacht broker and charter ushers in a new era of romance at sea.
“Northrop & Johnson is thrilled to partner with lauded wedding and event planner extraordinaire Jennifer Zabinski,” shares Daniel Ziriakus, President and COO of Northrop & Johnson. “We couldn’t be more delighted to bring Jennifer’s astute taste, eye for elegance and logistical fortitude to our esteemed clientele.”
Zabinski has been named “best of the best” by both Harper’s Bazaar and Martha Stewart Weddings and is highly coveted for her methodical, collaborative approach to wedding planning. Zabinski has planned, designed, and executed hundreds of events in some of the most exciting stunning locales around the world including: Necker Island, St. Barts, Ravello, Cap Ferrat, Amalfi Coast, Aspen, Paris, Florence, and San Francisco. Now, she is bringing her talents to sea as 2022 is primed to become the busiest wedding year since 1984 according to industry firm The Wedding Report.
“There is such a sense of freedom being on the water: the openness of the air, the vastness of the horizon,” said Jennifer Zabinski. “Yachts allow you to access dreamy locales that aren't necessarily even a venue. The biggest perk, weddings at sea are not time-sensitive or date sensitive. The 2022 wedding boom is inspiring creativity across the industry so as not to end up with a Tuesday afternoon wedding.”
A major differentiator for the JZ Wedding Experience is the ability for groups to book a tandem charter, two or more yachts that can accommodate 12 guests each, such as Northrop & Johnson’s Da Vinci and Veni Vidi Vici. Perfect for seclusion and privacy if needed, it allows for tandem bachelor and bachelorette parties to come together as one and dramatic wedding day reveals in lieu of a wedding aisle.
