Captain Sandy Yawn is married!

The Below Deck Mediterranean star married her longtime partner Leah Shafter over the weekend at a ceremony in Florida that took place on a superyacht, according to Monsters & Critics.

The couple tied the knot May 11 in the presence of not only a Bravo camera crew, but also some stars from the network, including ‘Below Deck Med’ Chef Dave White (who also catered the event); Below Deck executive producer Nadine Rajabi, who officiated the ceremony; and Bravo stars Kate Chastain and Aesha Scott–- the latter of whom just got engaged herself.

“This is what I was in [Florida] for!” Aesha posted to Instagram this week. “Witnessing the love of [Captain Sandy] and [Leah] was such an honour.”

Captain Sandy shared the big news with fans on social media this week, telling fans she “had no idea how amazing marriage could be.”

“ … It feels incredible, and I feel like the luckiest woman in the world,” she wrote. “I love you, Leah Rae Yawn!! Thank you for taking my name! Thank you to our entire family and friends for coming out to show your love and support to our relationship.”

Captain Sandy also confirmed that the nuptials were filmed, and they will be shown on the June 3 episode of ‘Below Deck Mediterranean.’ 

As The Ashley previously told you, the Bravo yacht captain proposed to Leah in September after more than five years of dating. The pair met in Los Angeles in 2018 after connecting online months earlier when Leah reached out to Sandy privately on Facebook.

This is Captain Sandy’s first marriage and the second for Leah, who shares a teenage daughter with her former spouse.

Captain Sandy revealed that she and Leah will be honeymooning in the Florida Keys and presumably traveling via yacht, naturally.

  1. I hope this works out for Captain Sandy. I don’t watch Below Deck anymore. One reason is that the editing is so bad – you mostly get a series of quick shots of people darting around the boat. Also, I just can’t stand how Aesha can drag out a syllable for a good 30 seconds or more. It’s worse than nails on a chalkboard! Although I like her as a person. I was also tired of getting used to a new cast every season. It was easy to walk away from the show since I haven’t enjoyed it much since Ben left, aside from the seasons with Malia. It was pretty cool how she advanced so quickly and did a great job as bosun. She seems to be a natural leader. I would probably watch again if she came back as captain, just to see how she does. Other than that, not really interested in Below Deck anymore.

  2. Love the whole styling. Exactly the atmosphere and look I would expect captain Sandy to marry in (on hindsight I guess). This is them.
    (Don’t know what her wife’s taste is like, we can assume it’s what she wanted too).
