Creative Weddings

This past weekend I performed two very creative weddings ceremonies. I love all weddings and always love seeing the creative ideas couples come up with for their weddings.

The first wedding I officiated was on Indian Rocks Beach. Caitlin and Nick rented a beach house and invited family and friends to the wedding on Friday afternoon. Caitlin is very creative and DIY. She made paper flowers and decorated the wedding arbor with them.

She also had paper flowers made and attached them to post to line the aisle walkway. She had little tambourine’s in a chest that she decorated with colorful ribbon streamers. Each guest picked up a tambourine to use at the end of the ceremony to use to cheer and make noise!! The bridesmaids had paper flower bouquets, as did, Caitlin.

Caitlin made reserved parking spaces signs and placed them in the small area in front of the house where limited parking was available for wedding VIP’s. She even made one for me!!!

It was a beautiful afternoon ceremony. After the wedding Nick went off to celebrate, and I was able to capture a photo of Caitlin chill in on the couch while waiting for reception to get started.

Later that evening, I officiated a ceremony for Stephanie and Efrain. The ceremony was at their home in Palm Harbor.  The ceremony was outside by the pool overlooking the water. They decorated with a Fall theme. The inside of the house had an awesome candy bar. The guest would fill mason jars with assorted candies. They had tootsie rolls, M&M’s, caramel twist and many more yummy candies.

Outside by the pool they had a photo booth and decorated the white folding chairs with ribbons and fall flowers.  Stephanie said she wasn’t going to cry!! HAHA she was so tearful. I could see that they were truly a fun loving couple. It was a beautiful night for a ceremony.

“Charmaine was truly wonderful to work with. She was courteous and professional, and was very helpful in providing different templates that we used to create our vows. She was on time and very patient on our special day. We did not feel rushed or stressed. Our private beach ceremony could not have gone better – thanks to Charmaine and A Beautiful Wedding in Florida!”
