What types of weddings do you perform?
Over the years, we have performed nearly 1,000 wedding ceremonies. We perform services for most denominations, and many cultures and traditions, including Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Hindu, American Indian, and more. We have officiated countless interfaith, non-religious, non-traditional, and same-sex marriages as well.
In the past, we have officiated weddings with translators for other languages, and even three sets of dogs! We are happy to offer civil union and vow renewal ceremonies also.
We offer several different types of special ceremonies for weddings including unity candles, rose ceremonies, sand blessings, ribbon ceremonies and extended readings. If needed, we can attend rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions. Check out our services page for information and pricing.
What areas to you service?
We regularly perform ceremonies from Southern Georgia down to St. Augustine and Flagler County, Florida. Most of our ceremonies take place in the Jacksonville, Florida and Amelia Island, Florida areas. We are licensed in all 50 states, and from time to time, we travel outside these areas.
How much does a wedding cost?
We offer a variety of packages and a la carte services. Be sure to check out our Services page for detailed information, including prices.
What is included in the basic wedding package?
Our basic wedding package includes vows designed for the couple, performing the ceremony, and all legal follow up in mailing the license.
Where can I obtain a marriage license?
If you need assistance obtaining a marriage license in another location, just give us a call or contact us, and we will be happy to help.
Can you help me write something special for my vows?
Yes! We have a great formula for making you say what you feel in your heart. Custom vows are $150, which includes 3 phone sessions.
Do you help with wedding planning?
If the couple does not have a wedding planner, we can surely orchestrate the wedding party. We can also direct the wedding rehearsal, or just the wedding day ceremony. We are well versed in protocol for most types of weddings, denominations, and traditions. Check out our services page for detailed information and prices for add-on services to the basic wedding package.
If you are looking for a separate wedding planner, we can always refer you to someone who we have worked with in the past.
Do you have any tips or advice for beach weddings?
Beach weddings are beautiful. If you have more than 10 guests, we need to make sure they can hear the vows. In this case, you will need to provide for a microphone and sound.
The second thing to consider is rain. Decide ahead of time if will you proceed in the rain, or have a “Plan B” in place? We’ve officiated many weddings in the rain, and it makes them even more memorable—most say it’s even good luck!
I have a location at Jax Beach that provides parking and easy access to the beach. The beach access is over a wooden bridge, so the dress is preserved, and the guests do not have to walk over sand dunes.
Where are some unique places to get married?
We have performed ceremonies on yacht decks, the ocean floor, and even while jumping out of perfectly working airplanes. If you have a special request for a ceremony or venue, just contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Do you officiate any other types of special events?
Absolutely! We offer a variety of other types of services and ceremonies including bridal and baby showers; baby naming and blessings; sweet sixteen and quinceañeras; baptisms; funerals, eulogies, and graveside services.
