A wedding reception aboard a boat got off to a rocky start when the vessel ran aground off Georges Island in Boston Harbor.

The Majesty, a Boston Harbor Cruises vessel, became stuck around 7 p.m. Saturday. There were 152 people aboard, including 137 passengers. No one was injured.

A Boston Harbor Cruises spokeswoman told The Boston Globe that all passengers were safely transferred to the Asteria, another Boston Harbor Cruises vessel.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Andrew Barresi says five boats operated by the Coast Guard, state police, state environmental police and the Massachusetts Port Authority helped transfer the passengers.

It's unclear why the ship grounded.

There's no word on whether the couple tied the knot later on dry land.
