Annette and Carlos Antonio’s Wedding Ceremony Sunset Beach Tarpon Springs- Officiated by George Doumanian Jr.

Why do we love a Wedding Ceremony Sunset Beach Tarpon Springs? Sunset Beach in Tarpon Springs is a great place for a wedding ceremony because it doesn’t require a permit to setup a wedding ceremony. Plus it’s pretty, small, and romantic making it ideal for a Florida beach wedding. Because no permit is required a space cannot be reserved and is a first come first serve basis. If it’s a busy weekend day, we recommend sending someone out early to claim a spot. The Sunset beach does have a parking lot and overlooks the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, as well as, and Fred Howard Park.

On 11/11/17 Annette and Carlos Antonio were married on Sunset Beach. George Doumanian Jr performed their late afternoon wedding ceremony. It was a picture perfect day for a Florida beach wedding.  Annette planned the ceremony with me and asked to include a few ofour A-La-Carte Ceremony Items. She chose to include our “Sweet and Simple” bamboo poles with starfishes and white chair setup. They had 40 guests attend the wedding ceremony.

A few days before the wedding, Annette had texted me and said she thought Carlos Antonio was nervous. George Jr. called Carlos was very calming in speaking to Carlos Antonio which helped calmed his nervousness. Annette’s son was the best man standing next to Carlos Antonio. Annette and Carlos Antonio were very pleased with the wedding ceremony setup and thanked George Jr for officiating, and myself for helping organize everything. Annette told me just how simple we made it and how beautiful everything looked.

Sarah and Daniels wedding ceremony at Shiloh Farm Tallahassee

On October 15, 2017 I had the honor of officiating Sarah and Daniel’s wedding ceremony Shiloh Farm Tallahassee. It was the most beautiful day for a beautiful couple.

When planning their wedding Sarah had asked me for an affordable way to have someone make sure the reception ran smoothly. A Day of Coordinator was more than they were able to spend. Fortunately they are a very organized and well planned couple so my awesome assistant, Tyler, was able to work their reception for a few hours.

I worked with Sarah to put together their ceremony. She wanted a short and sweet ceremony that mentioned God. They also wanted to include a cord braiding ceremony. A traditional cord braiding ceremony uses gold, purple and white cords but they had tan colored rope so they asked me to help adjust this part of the ceremony. It really turned out beautiful, as you can see below.

Cord Braiding Ceremony

Today, Daniel and Sarah have chosen to braid three strands together into a single cord. Each strand has a significant meaning.

The 1st strand represents God and His majesty.

The 2nd strand represents the groom and his life.

The 3rd strand represents the bride and her life.

In braiding these three strands together, Daniel and Sarah have demonstrated that their marriage is more than a joining of two lives together. It is a unity with God as well. They have chosen to allow God to be at the center of their marriage, woven into every aspect of it.

As Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 reads, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not easily broken.”

Bride & Groom braid cord

Today, Daniel and Sarah have been woven together by God as ONE in marriage! One man, one woman, and God. It was God who taught us to love. By keeping Him at the center of your marriage, His love will continue to bind you together as one throughout your marriage.

The reception was fun filled including a pizza buffet and candy bar!

Cypress Point Park Wedding Ceremony

Cypress Point Park Wedding Ceremony

News

When looking for a pretty place to have a small beach wedding Cypress Point Park in Tampa would provide a great place to consider.

Why do we recommend a Cypress Point Park Wedding Ceremony?

Cypress Point Park is an oceanfront park conveniently located near Tampa International Airport and downtown Tampa. The park overlooks Tampa Bay, has picnic pavilions, park amenities, and has very pretty beach areas for a wedding ceremony. The beach is very clean, has palm trees, parking, and a pretty walking trail; quite often you will see some beautiful birds.

Heather and Allen’s Cypress Park Wedding Ceremony

We found an isolated spot for Heather and Allen’s early morning ceremony on October 14th. Not only was the location isolated it was also a very picturesque spot with Tampa Bay in the background,  some trees, and a few pretty puffy white clouds.

Heather and Allen chose our Wedding Package #2 with the fresh rose petal heart in sand, and George Sr took photos. They had a few family members at the ceremony. It was a beautiful morning.

Heather and Allen were very pleased that we could accommodate them for an early morning ceremony and thanked us repeatedly for their beautiful wedding.

 

Surprise Coquina Beach Wedding Ceremony

Surprise Coquina Beach Wedding Ceremony

News

Coquina Beach is a little hidden gem spot for a wedding. Coquina beach has the clearest water, and it is just beautiful. Their is path leading to the beach from the parking lot that brings you out to gorgeous beach with white sand. The nicest thing about it is no swimming is allowed because of the current. It makes it a beautiful spot for a beach wedding, and has amazing sunsets.

We were a part an amazing surprise Coquina Beach wedding ceremony on August 11th.

Lellani called me on Monday ,August 7th and asked if I would be available to officiate a surprise Coquina Beach wedding ceremony on Friday,  August 11 at sunset. Lellani,  her fiance Mario, and their two children were vacationing from Miami  and wanted to get married.  She booked our Tampa wedding package #4  .

Wedding day!

On Friday when George Sr and I arrived we found out then that it was going to be a surprise wedding for the children. Lellani told the children they would be going to the beach to have family photos taken. The children were the only guests. They were totally clueless that their parents were getting married. They were asking what the bottles were that I was setting up for the sand ceremony, and I just told them it was part of the background for the pictures. When we were all setup and ready to start the ceremony Lellani walked back away from the setup and we started to play the wedding song for Lellani to walk down the aisle. That’s when the oldest child said, “Gee it’s like your getting married or something.” Lellani and Mario replied, “We Are!” The children were so so excited!!! They said, “For real?!” They actually had tears of joy in their eyes. They had been asking their parents when they were going to get married and were never given an answer. The children seriously watched the ceremony and loved every minute of it.

It was a gorgeous sunset. Lellani, George Sr took photos of ceremony, and family photos. Lellani and Mario thanked us so much for such a wonderful ceremony, and all we did to help with their Surprise Coquina Beach wedding ceremony.

Summertime Morning Wedding Ceremonies

Summertime Morning Wedding Ceremonies are the best!!!

Sunrise or very early morning is the nicest time of day for a beach wedding in the Florida Summer. Also if you want a quiet, peaceful atmosphere for your summertime wedding ceremony morning is by far the nicest time for just that. Summers in Florida get very hot and humid as the day goes on. In the morning it isn’t as hot and humid making it so much more comfortable thus why we highly recommend summertime morning wedding ceremonies.

A Beautiful Wedding in Florida had a beautiful sunrise vow renewal ceremony on Sunday for Brenda and Kenneth. We were the first and only ones on the beach at Sand Key Park in Clearwater at 7:00 AM. George Sr and I made a fresh rose petal heart in the sand and George SR took photos. Brenda and Kenneth were celebrating their 25th year wedding anniversary on that day. They were vacationing in Florida from Missouri. Brenda and Kenneth chose to commemorate their ceremony with the giving and receiving of communion recognizing their spiritual commitment and showing their participation in the body of Christ. The quiet ambiance at the beach allowed us to just listen to the waves of the ocean and have a very undisturbed vow renewal ceremony.

Immediately following Brenda and Kenneth’s vow renewal ceremony, we had a wedding ceremony at 9:00 AM on Honeymoon Island in Dunedin. George Sr. and I met Hope and Wendy at the beach before the beach crowds started to arrive. We setup the arbor on the white sand where no beach goers had arrived yet then had a lovely wedding ceremony. Hope and Wendy chose to participate in a unity sand ceremony with pink and purple sands to be blended.

Summertime morning wedding ceremonies are popular! We officiated another morning wedding ceremony before the Honeymoon Island park opened. Bonenita and Jody were married outside of Honeymoon Island State park before it opened! They are fishermen and chose to tie the knot with the fishermen’s knot ceremony.

Quite often summertime morning wedding ceremonies or sunrise ceremonies are celebrated without guests but guests are not excluded. After the wedding ceremony you can have a celebrotary reception brunch or beach day. We always say “It’s your day” have fun with it.
