YCI Owner McMahon Weds
Marti McMahon, owner of San Francisco’s Yacht Connections International, was married to her best friend and the love of her life in style aboard the California Spirit on Valentine’s Day.
Yacht Connections International (YCI) owner Marti McMahon has been hosting unforgettable weddings aboard her various yachts for over 30 years, so when she became engaged to Dr. Stephen Diamond, owner of Diamond Properties, she knew right away where she wanted to hold the wedding: on board the 100’ California Spirit, a yacht she commissioned years ago and recently refurbished with finishing touches completed in January 2011. They married on Valentine’s Day, cruising along the San Francisco Bay into their future together with family and the closest of friends.
“We were engaged early last year but there was always something that came up to put our wedding on hold,” explained Marti, “so we said, let’s just do it…and it was perfect.”
They had just a little over one week to plan the wedding, but it was a breeze for Marti, because after so many years of helping other people plan their dream weddings aboard this most romantic of San Francisco wedding venues, she has forged strong relationships with the best vendors in the Bay Area who know how to make a short-notice wedding work.
Marti arrived early to put on her Sue Wong dress in the lovely bridal salon created exclusively for brides and bridesmaids.
