Ceremonies

COVID SAFETY MESSAGE

2020 has been a really tough year with the pandemic and being a business woman of color. Throughout all of these things, love is still growing. People are still falling in love and wanting to get married. I want to share in your day but how can I say I care about you having a wonderful and memorable ceremony experience if I do not take steps to make sure your health and the health of your guests are not considered.

It is my sincere hope that all of my clients and their guests will take the appropriate precautions to ensure that their wedding ceremony is a safe event. Please encourage social distancing and wearing masks. To do my part I am no longer accepting requests for large weddings.

I am no longer accepting weddings on the Florida west coast like Clearwater, Tampa, Treasure Island,etc or any weddings that take 2 hours of driving to get to due to the distance and time it would have me away from home since I am having to care for my disabled mother in law. Unless you are willing to pay for the incidentals which would include a minimum of 6 hours of private home care.

For the rest of 2020 I am only accepting requests for micro weddings, elopements and Very Intimate Weddings. (2-12 people total)

From January - May of 2021 I will add Intimate Plus weddings and Intimate Beach Weddings if the pandemic has shown signs of consistently slowing down. (2-25 people total)

In June 2021- I will accept weddings up to 50-60 people if the pandemic has shown signs of consistently slowing down and clients/guests are getting inoculated or have been tested with a negative result within 2 months of the wedding date.

WEDDING TIPS FOR CREATING A CEREMONY THAT IS UNIQUELY YOU

Create a ceremony that is meaningful and romantic. I will help you by providing options and suggestions for vows, readings and traditions. You may add your own touches as well as your own vows. Use words that touch your heart and define what you feel about the person you have chosen to take this journey of love with. Add unique touches like Handfastings, unusual unity ceremonies, show your gamer side. You are not bound to traditional wording. Make it fun, make it romantic, Make it about you! Afterall, it is your wedding day!

Choose words that reflect what is important in your marriage. Be in tune with your beliefs, character and personality. Be Creative. Dare to be fun, silly and unique….if that is who you are. Remember, this is “your” ceremony. Words and trends that may be important to another couple, or family member may not necessarily have value to you. The right ceremony speaks to your heart.

A professional wedding officiant is someone that a couple pays to perform their wedding ceremony most often outside of a church or place of worship, regardless of religious affiliation. 🔹️You can expect to pay a minimum of $200 to $500 or more for an experienced professional officiant. Average wedding ceremonies now cost about $500-$800 with elopements starting at $300 across the US as of 2016 – courtesy of Google 2016 🔹️As of 2018 the national Average cost of Weddings by experienced professional wedding officiants was $500-800 – courtesy of WeddingOfficiants.com and The Knot 2018

*MY PROMISE TO YOU*

I will marry you and your soon to be spouse if all legal paperwork and my requirements for service have been met, paid for and booked. It is not my business, nor do I have an opinion on whether this is your first or fifth marriage, whether you are expecting, never want children or have children already, if you are a couple of different faiths, different cultures, disabilities, large age gap, the same gender or if you are newly divorced. All that is important to me is that you truly love the person you are asking me to perform the ceremony for and it is your intention to stay married.

*If I have married you once and it ended in divorce, there is a very high likelihood that I won’t accept your request to marry you again. Only because I think sometimes a total fresh start is best.

Want to see me in action? A few videos of my wonderful couples were captured and filmed by the talented Coastal Creations Video team and are on their Vimeo website! The weddings were performed in Eustis, [Katrina and Tashaka] Palm Coast, [Keli and James] and Daytona [Shanterria and Toweus]
