How does the marriage license work?

4 easy steps: You go together to any courthouse in Florida and pick up a license. Bring your driver’s license, passport or any government issues ID. They will ask you if you have been married before and the date your last marriage ended. They will not ask for documentation.
Bring the license to the wedding. We will file it and in 2-4 weeks the state of Florida will send you a certified copy in the mail. There is a possibility, depending on which courthouse you procured the license from, of you taking it yourself after it is signed and they will give you the certified copy on the spot. But not all courthouses do this so make sure in advance. 

Do you do receptions?

We do beach receptions!  Our signature BeachBites menu can be customized for your taste and style.  We provide champagne for toasting, champagne cocktails, juice, ice water, soda and music as well for one hour.

Which locations do you cover?

We are a mobile wedding company and will come to your location . . . hotels, condos, beach houses, pavilions. We are fully self contained and can set up virtually anywhere.  We cover 150 miles of beach in South Florida – on the East side from Miami to Vero Beach and on the Gulf Coast we perform weddings in Naples.  See our Locations  page for full listing of beach wedding locations.

Do we need a permit for a ceremony if we are getting married on the beach?

Although all beaches are public; permission is sometimes required through a permit process.  This is true for Miami Beach, Hollywood Beach. This permit can cost up to $125. In Palm Beach we can have our weddings after 5 PM in the summer, after 3 PM in the winter.  Most towns’ beaches are wedding friendly.

Can we bring our own decorations?

We cover all of your decoration needs – just tell us what you like! You can also send us some custom decorations or home made one – but let us set them up for you. 

Can we use our own Officiant or Minister?

Of course!  Although all of our packages come with a minister and a high definition video, you may bring your own and we will take $50 off of any package price. Your minister must be ordained.

Can we customize what is said at our ceremony?

Sure can! About a month before your wedding date, your officiant will call you and get to know you. Then we start to craft your custom ceremony, vows, ring exchange etc.  and email you the first draft.  During this conversation we cover vows, ring exchanges and any additions to the wedding ceremony.  We email you a draft and we work together to make it perfect for you. 

Can we include family, friends and children in our ceremony?

Absolutely!  It is YOUR ceremony! We will discuss the different options that you have to include your loved family members and friends. 

What can we customize?

Aside from your vows and what the minister says, you have your choice of colors of fabrics and flowers. Your location and your time of day is your choosing.  You can customize how the chairs are set up – straight or in a circle. Your music are the songs of your choosing. 

Can we hire other people to perform services for us during the wedding?

You can BUT: We are not responsible for any service provided by outside vendors, booked or paid for directly.

What is a Sand Ceremony?

We set up a small cloth-covered table to be used, silver cups and a glass heart-shaped jar. The colors of the sand are your choice. During the beach wedding ceremony, the couple will be asked to pour the sand in the glass jar until it is full, becoming a beautiful memento of your wedding.  

Do you do Rehearsals?

As we do not set up anything on the beach prior to your wedding, there will be nothing to see – we can always partner with you on the phone, Skype or FaceTime to walk you through.   

Pictures and Video

Your pictures and video will be covered by staff photographers.  Though we edit and enhance the pictures – we do NOT photoshop. Our pictures are a mix of quality and quantity.

How do we get the pictures and video after the ceremony?

Your pictures and video will be provided to you on DVDs. The pictures will also be uploaded to our online photo gallery here.  Your pictures and video will be provided to you via secure download

Cancellations, Rescheduling and Back Up Locations

What if we need to cancel?

Things happen.  Military deployment is already covered in your contract and there will be no fee to reschedule. You can change your date to a mutually agreeable date if need be.  These details are also covered in your contract. We also offer a signature “Rainy Day Assurance” in the case of severe weather, you reserve the ability to reschedule wedding services due to weather or any other reason. We have packages for Up to 25 people, 25-50 people, and over 50 people 

What about the weather?

Rarely does it rain long enough to force a change in plans.  If we are concerned, we’ll stay in touch with you the day before and day of your wedding so we can formulate a plan. Rest assured, we are going to marry you, even if we all get wet! We get wet about 5% of the time. If this freaks you out,  don’t have a beach wedding.  As we cover 150 miles of beach,  we don’t have indoor space for you to use as a back up plan. It is the responsibility of the couple, if desired, to have a back-up location in case of inclement weather. You can use your hotel, or restaurant you are having your after wedding celebration, for instance.  Should we need to alter the ceremony time, location or decor options, there will not be a price reduction or refund. We want your business but we want you to be happy, no matter what adventurous conditions we encounter!
