    1st class wedding company, would highly recommend!

    Top shelf experience with Weddings on a Whim! Gale and Joe Liteheart provided all the best referrals, were wonderful people to work with, and created the special event we'd been hoping for. The weather was turning but we trusted their intuition and it worked perfectly! Would recommend without hesitation this great crew!

    Gayle Liteheart and the Whim Team did a fantastic job coordinating our wedding! We came to Florida on vacation to get married on the beach and the team took care of all the details! Gayle promptly answered our emails and questions and was very pleasant to work with! The team arrived early to set up and everything turned out beautiful! We were very pleased with their services and highly recommend them to anyone interested in a beach wedding! Thanks so much Whim Team!!

    Excellent service from the first contact until the day of the wedding! Gayle and staff answered every email and phone call promptly and offered suggestions and vendors to complete the event. Gayle and staff very organized. The website is user friendly and explains the ceremony choices and costs accurately so no hidden costs. Weddings On A Whim staff made the ceremony memorable for all.

    If you have a busy life or unable to plan every tiny detail of the big day this is who you want. They will organize and execute professionally and timely. I had complete trust in their communication and knew that I was in good hands on the day of my event. The officiant, Joe, was perfect. He added a bit of humor as well as fun to the ceremony. There was a crew to set up a gorgeous wedding on the beach and meet the bridal party and bride before the wedding started. I highly recommend this company for anyone planning a beautiful outdoors Florida wedding.

    I cannot say enough about Joe and the whole Weddings on a Whim team! I contacted them the week before our wedding, as we decided very last minute to get married on the beach while on our vacation. Throughout the week I got multiple calls and emails that helped keep me calm and stress free as it was put together and planned by the WOW team. They were ALWAYS in contact with us, and even gave us their personal cell numbers in case we needed to reach them for any questions or last minute changes. When we got to the beach, I cried as I walked down the aisle, because it was even more beautiful then the pictures. Jerry, the photographer also took such FANTASTIC pictures, and we had them a day later! He also did a wonderful job of getting many different angles and aspects of the wedding. My husband, every at the wedding, and I could not stop talking about what a great job the whole team did in coordination, set up, and accommodating us. If you plan on doing a wedding on the beach I would recommend Weddings on a Whim over and over. They are so great and we are so thankful!

    Just the best!!! I had contacted Weddings on a Whim in Florida based on reviews I had read. I wanted to do a surprise sunset beach vow renewal for my wife on our 30th wedding anniversary. I had emailed back and forth a few times than when I called gayle i knew this was the person to help me with my very special day. There was nothing she said no to me about, she has great beach packages for all budgets, great ideas also. Weddings on a Whim was always professional and kind. They worked in the music I asked for, additional readings were no problem, everything was just perfect. I know this was only a ceremony for two, but Gayle made it such a romantic and personal ceremony one we will never forget. Thank you to all at Weddings on a Whim for their help. I will forever recommend them to anyone going to tampa area for a wedding or vow ceremonies.

    Our destination wedding in Florida took place on 8/20/2016 and Wedding On A Whim was the perfect choice for us! The staff was very friendly and accommodating! It was very comforting as a bride out of state to know that the wedding planners (W.O.W) would do just what they advertised to do. I would recommend them to others thinking of having a beach wedding in Florida! Great package deal, staff and awesome photographer included! Fran & Joe

    OMG! I can't express enough how awesome Weddings on a Whim were. I literally called them last minute on a whim and they were so helpful and friendly through the whole thing! They made the wedding of our dreams cheaper than anyone else we checked into. I also liked that they didn't try to sell us the most expensive package. They actually started at the other end of the spectrum and we worked up from there with what I wanted. Seriously, if you are looking for a Florida beach wedding check them out! Also the dinner cruise buffet they offer was a blast and recommend it too, even if you don't do it as your reception. Check it out while you are down there.

    My wife and I and I arrived in FL 3 hours before Tropical Storm Colin hit FL. It was Sunday morning and our wedding wasn't until Tuesday morning, but we were concerned the storm may not be out of FL by Tuesday. We watched the weather channel almost nonstop Monday. Weddings on a Whim contacted us Monday afternoon and said based on the forecast, if we move the wedding from 11am (our original time) to 6pm Tuesday there will only be a 10% chance of rain. We agreed and it was sunny and not a cloud in the sky at 6pm. Joe and Gail were extremely sweet and accommodating. Joe was our officiant and we loved him. He was so nice and really helped calm our nerves before and during the wedding. The ceremony was everything we hoped for. It was the perfect day! Thank you Weddings on a Whim.

    The whole Weddings on a Whim team was amazing to work with! We planned the entire wedding while living in Indiana, and it was easy as heck! We brought our own officiant and photographer and they worked with us perfectly. My stepmom made signs to add, and everything looked absolutely amazing. The beach was pretty crowded the evening of the wedding, but you hardly noticed while sitting down, and with how beautiful all the decor looked! Thank you so much for making our wedding so beautiful and working with us over distance.

    My husband and I got married last May on clearwater beach and we can't say enough about the weddings on a whim team! They were so fantastic and nothing was EVER a bother. Joe and Jerry were so very very professional and to be honest very calming. We had expressed how important it was to us to involve the children/step children, the unity sand and step children vows were by far the most memorable part of our wedding. The children are already wanting us to renew our vows every year as they want to relive it over and over. Love from Canada Jewel & Jeremy Kowalchuk

    Gayle did an amazing job. She made us feel like family and kept me calm and assured throughout the whole process. We had a magical day thanks to her and her team. Wouldn't change a thing which is amazing because we planned the wedding in less than 7 weeks during the busy season in Florida. Would recommend these services to anyone planning a small or large beach ceremony. Give her your vision and she will make it happen seamlessly. Thank you Weddings on a Whim for making our day so special.

I would highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking of having a beach wedding! Vic was our officiant and he was very nice and professional. Matt was our photographer and had great picture ideas.

    My husband and I wanted a simple but elegant beach wedding for our ceremony last month. Weddings on a Whim delivered everything that we needed and more. They were responsive during the planning process and made suggestions as to reception sites and photographers. Our officiant, Joe, was absolutely wonderful and made the wedding fun as well as meaningful. He was great during the step children vows and the family sand ceremony and really helped my two children feel a part of our wedding. We chose the Whim Sea ceremony set up and as I was walking up the "aisle", I was blown away by how absolutely gorgeous it looked. All of our guests were also just amazed by how beautiful it was. I was a day we'll remember forever and I can never thank Weddings on a Whim enough for their hard work in making our day perfect!
