Florida Beach Weddings
by Reverend Arlene Goldman ~ 954.494.3744
If you’ve ever dreamed of getting married on the beach, South Florida is THE destination. Weddings here are the most romantic! The warmth of the sun, the sound of the surf, a gentle ocean breeze, and the soft whisper of “I do”, these are some of the reasons why a Florida beach wedding is a favorite.
“Reverend Arlene made our ceremony personal and unique.
Our guests commented over and over about how wonderful she is
and how special she made it. We feel so fortunate to have found her to be the one to marry us.
….. Lisa and Catalin Pantaza
Are you considering a destination wedding? Are you from across the country or across the globe? Many brides and many grooms have concerns about planning a wedding from long distance. I have married couples from all over the world and we can do everything by email.
Whether you are planning a destination wedding, a beach wedding, whether your preference is traditional or non-traditional, spiritual or civil, let me design a unique and personal wedding ceremony just for you!
“Everyone there commented on how wonderful you were.
No one believed that we met over the internet.
Most people thought we knew you for years… ”
….. Marla & Kevin Sullivan
There are hundreds of hotels in the tri-county area where both the ceremony and reception can take place. And there are prices to fit all budgets. Feel free to call or text at 954.494.3744 or use this link to Contact Us for more information on a Florida beach wedding ceremony.
Want to add something fun? What about a sand ceremony? A sand ceremony is similar in concept to the Unity Candle, but is not a religious tradition. With a sand ceremony, the two of you come together as individuals with individual containers of colored sand and symbolically unite in love and marriage as you pour those into one larger container. If you have children, a sand ceremony is a wonderful way for the children to be involved in the wedding and to connect as a family. Mothers and or fathers can also be invited to share in this ceremony. By the way, a sand ceremony can be performed anywhere. It is not limited to the beach! Please see the Wedding Traditions page for more sand ceremony photos.
“Who would have thought that a hurricane would have canceled the big wedding we had planned
AND that we would have been fortunate enough to find and have you officiate our impromptu wedding on the beach two weekends later!
Our wedding was BETTER than we could have imagined …”
