About Simple Seaside Ceremonies

I am a Certified Wedding Specialist, a Professional Bridal Consultant, a Professional Wedding Planner, a Marriage Educator and an Ordained Minister. Planning, coordinating, rehearsal directing and officiating services are available in the Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte County areas. Formal, informal or beach settings. First or second marriages. Ceremonies conducted from sunrise to sunset seven days a week. A large selection of original wedding ceremonies are available. You are welcome to personalize or customize your ceremony with a favorite poem or passage or reading or a family tradition/custom or your own vows.

The fee to officiate a wedding ceremony or renewal of vows is $99. The fee to officiate any type of ceremony, any day of the week is $99. The fee to officiate any type of ceremony on a holiday or holiday weekend is $99. There is a $1 per mile travel fee (one way) to any location that does NOT have a Venice, FL address.

Serving these areas: Lido Key, Siesta Key, Sarasota, Osprey, Nokomis, Venice, Englewood, North Port, Port Charlotte and Boca Grande.

Yes, I perform "short notice" ceremonies. Just recently I was contacted on a Sunday evening, the couple were united in matrimony that following Wednesday morning in Venice.

Looking for the perfect ceremony location? Something secluded? Something grand? Something with the Gulf of Mexico in the background? I can make suggestions or give you some ideas. Did you know there are several beach locations that have a picnic area or restaurants close by? Did you know that you may have to obtain a permit for your event through the county parks and recreation department?

Yes, I do "couple only" ceremonies. In the State of Florida only one signature is required, the officiant's signature. You do not need one or two witnesses for a wedding ceremony in Florida.

The two or three day waiting period is waived for those couples (both people) who have an out-of-state identification or driver's license. BOTH people must have an out-of-state driver's license or identification to qualify. Did you know that you can get your Marriage License right here in Venice? The Robert Anderson Administration Center (Sarasota County) is open from 830AM to 4PM, Monday - Friday (no weekend or evening hours).

Want to do "something different"? I've got suggestions, ideas and examples! On the first day of January, 2018, I officiated a Medieval Theme Ceremony at Mykka River State Park outside of Sarasota. And on the 13th of October, 2018, I officiated a Florida Cowboy and Cowgirl Theme Ceremony at a private home in Port Charlotte.

Want to do a "traditional" ceremony? Yes, I know all the rules of etiquette and the words of a traditional ceremony.

Just want a "short and simple" ceremony? That's what I do!

There is only one thing better than getting married, and that is getting married in paradise!
