Personalized Wedding Ceremonies and Sand Ceremonies for Blending Hearts and Lives

Heartfelt Personalized Wedding Ceremonies Performed by an Officiant Who Shares Your Joy

Your wedding ceremony is the culmination of all your aspirations and plans, so why shouldn’t it be exactly as you want it? Be selective in your choice of a wedding officiant. It should be someone who is interested in what you want, someone willing to listen to you either in an initial face-to-face meeting or on the phone.

While the ceremony is the focus of your wedding plans, it is one of the least expensive items in your budget. Your officiant should be one of the first vendors you contact. So why not come to the company with a professional listener who can provide that service?

Wedding Ceremony FAQs

How can I personalize my wedding ceremony? +

Your personalized wedding ceremony can include your own vows, additional readings, poems and/or scriptures that have special meaning for you. It may also include a personal story about you as a couple.

Some couples have taken the basic elements for a wedding ceremony and modified them to fit their own needs, while some couples have written all or most of the wedding ceremony themselves. Whatever the content, you can be assured that a distinctive feature of our ceremonies is that they are personalized. It is your personal choice and our unique delivery that create the final outcome.

Our beautiful sand ceremony and/or the addition of dove or butterfly releases are some of the ways that we help you to create a personalized and meaningful ceremony.

Can you officiate my wedding ceremony at my church or synagogue? +

Check with your church or synagogue and ask if they permit other officiants to perform all or part of your ceremony. They may provide an option where you can include some of our wedding officiant services in addition to the traditional service performed by their Minister, Priest or Rabbi.

How do you handle cross-denominational and cross-religious weddings? +

Traditions from both religions are incorporated in the wedding ceremony to meet the needs of the bride, groom and their respective families and friends. A spiritual service that is inspirational and heartfelt can be part of the non-denominational ceremony that I officiate.

At your request, we can arrange personalized wedding ceremonies that include Christian, Christian-Jewish, or non-denominational traditions, including civil and medieval weddings, romantic beach weddings, second marriages, wedding vows that include children, older couple marriages, vow renewals, and anniversaries. We provide translators for ceremonies in Spanish, German and French.

We have performed everything from short, non-traditional wedding ceremonies lasting ten to fifteen minutes, to formal affairs of forty to forty-five minutes in length. Some churches will allow you to have your own Florida wedding officiant to perform the ceremony. We have also officiated weddings in private homes, historic homes, hotels and country clubs, art museums, botanical gardens, city parks, yachts, riverboats, and on the beach. You can also request a male or female officiant.

Our diversity allow us to perform many types of wedding ceremonies. We have conducted both civil and religious wedding ceremonies, as well as civil, traditional and non-traditional weddings.

Helping you with every detail of your wedding day from personalized wedding ceremonies to helping you select your wedding ceremony music and vows, we take the stress and worry away and make your experience positive and rewarding. More than half of the couples whom we have married this past year have relied on our expertise and experience entirely, and have been delighted with the results.
