Bernice contacted me about officiating her wedding ceremony while she and her partner were in Florida. She and her partner were traveling from Ohio and wanted a nice Florida beach wedding. Her partner Brook had never been to the beach before!! Bernice sent me photos of what she wanted the beach to look like and was asking for suggestions on where to have their wedding ceremony. They envisioned their Florida wedding ceremony on a wide open beach somewhat secluded with white sand. I knew I could help them! We went back and forth with photos and questions before they decided that a Clearwater Beach wedding ceremony was exactly what they wanted.
Bernice and Brook booked our Clearwater Beach Special #2 package and added our A La Carte mound style heart in sand with tiki torches, greenery, and hydrangeas for floral arrangements around the tiki torches. She wanted a few chairs with navy sashes and a rose petal aisle runner. They knew just what she wanted for their wedding ceremony. Bernice told me she was even having a monkey as a ring bearer because that was something Brook had always wanted.
Last Thursday morning Bernice and Brook had their dream Florida beach wedding. It had rained the night before the wedding leaving the beach sand somewhat damp, a little windy, and completely empty! It was best time to have a Clearwater Beach wedding ceremony because nobody was on the beach (note- if you know Clearwater Beach it’s very hard to get the beach to yourself ). The beach was quiet and wide open.
Our associate officiant, Ellida, performed the ceremony and I setup the ceremony details (chairs, heart, torches, flowers) and got them down the aisle on time. During the wedding ceremony when it came time for the rings Don Juan, a little monkey, brought them up to them. Don Juan was the cutest little ring bearer. He hopped on Brook’s shoulder and gave the rings to them. It was super cool!!!
Brook and Bernice were leaving that afternoon for a cruise to Cozumel before heading back to Ohio. Bernice text me and said, “Thank you so much for everything. Wouldn’t have been possible without your help.”
