Backyard Wedding Ceremony Tampa

Backyard Wedding Ceremony Tampa


Summar contacted me about performing a wedding ceremony for her daughter Lindsey and son in law to be Brett. The wedding was going to be held in their backyard at her home in Tampa.  She wanted me to put together a package with an arbor, officiant, music and table with cloth covering for sand ceremony.

I put the package together for her and corresponded with her Lindsay about the ceremony and music.

The wedding day was a gorgeous fall day. The backyard was setup beautifully for the wedding. White chairs were setup and hook lanterns were placed on outside of chairs lining the aisle. The ceremony was between two beautiful trees on the lawn.

Lindsey selected a beautiful vow piece that was full of emotion and love. She also wanted to include where she and Brett would be giving roses to their Mother’s. Lindsey and Brett said vows to each other.

Both had tears in their eyes as they said their special words.  We performed a unity sand ceremony with Lindsey, Brett and his son Gabriel.

The ceremony was so beautiful. Lindsey and Brett at the end of the ceremony wanted to start celebrating and chose “Highway to Hell” by AC-DC to be played as they were walking out. A truly fun couple. They pulled out sunglasses and put them on and kicked up their legs and danced down the aisle.

Photos were taken after the ceremony and a backyard reception was setup for all to enjoy.

The following week after the wedding Summar submitted the following 5 Star Review through

Summar said…  I got in touch with Charmaine when I decided to have a back yard wedding for my daughter. I read her reviews and thought she would be a good fit with what we were looking for. She was very responsive in emails and phone calls. She did a great job in her delivery of the ceremony and the sand unity ceremony was great. She brought the table and I also rented a bamboo arbor which looked fantastic. I would highly recommend her services.

Country Western Wedding in Lithia Florida

Country Western Wedding in Lithia Florida


Not all Florida weddings are at a beach or park. George Sr. officiated Brandon and Carly’s country western wedding in Lithia Florida at The Chat ‘N’ Chew on November 8th. Just like the name sounds it is a rustic lodge western style venue. Chat ‘N’ Chew is located on a beautiful 70 acre property nestled by shady oak trees. George Sr. said it was out in the middle of nowhere, but commented on how pretty it was. The ceremony was outside under the trees and a fun western reception followed inside Chat ‘N’ Chew.

As George Sr. was walking into the venue he almost stepped right on a nice big cow paddy. He had to laugh! Can’t get more country than this in Florida.

Watch your step! Hah!

Watch your step! Hah!

The guests were all wearing jeans, boats, and cowboy hats. George Sr. and the wedding party were the only ones in formal attire. It was a very nice wedding and it looked like they had a fun reception planned after the wedding.

Carly and Brandon wanted a simple ceremony. Brandon wore a grey suit with a red rose boutonnière that matched the flowers in Carly’s bouquet. Carly looked so pretty wearing a white sleeveless gown and carrying a small bouquet of fall colored flowers.

Carly and Brandon thanked George Sr. for a wonderful ceremony, and appreciated him performing the ceremony.
