Our Unique Beach Ceremony
Each “Sun and Sea Beach Wedding” ceremony is customized to fit the needs of the couple. With our beach ceremony package options, each ceremony is different, from the vows, music, and decor…down to the guests’ attire! We offer weddings, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies, and elopements.
Discover the beautiful beaches of Florida
The beautiful beaches of the First Coast, St. Augustine, Jacksonville Beach, Palm Coast, and Amelia Island offer the perfect setting for a romantic and unique Sun and Sea Beach ceremony. If you are looking for a Georgia Beach Wedding, Jekyll Island and St. Simons are the two locations that we service. Jekyll is more popular for beach ceremonies due to the variety of beach options.
Feeling creative…Write your own.
We offer several wedding vows including traditional, message in a bottle, as well as ring vows to choose from. You can also add that personal touch and write your own.
Children can be included throughout the ceremony as well as your guests. It will be a memorable day for everyone involved.
Each of the couples are given a packet of several vows/ring vows to choose from. The couple is welcome to add/delete any words to customize for their needs. They do not have to use the same vow/ring vow—it’s very common for us to get separate envelopes/e-mails so the other will be surprised on their wedding day! The vows are either repeated after the officiant or they are given in the form of a scroll to be read by each partner. We call this second option “message in a bottle” vows.
Go traditional or add beach themed accents.
Some couples have the traditional wedding party. Instead of flower girls on the beach, we have “seashell girls” tossing seashells from a basket along the beach… the ring bearer carries a treasure chest to hold the rings.
After the ring vows is when the Unity Heart of Glass sand ceremony is done. Some couples ask the Mothers to get the sand; it’s then given to the bride or groom. This part of the ceremony demonstrates the joining of the two families into one new unite.
Children from previous relationships can be included in the ceremony – this part of the ceremony is referenced as “Family Promises”. Some couples opt to bring a gift to present to the child/children during the ceremony (ring, bracelet, necklace, etc.) Children are also involved in other parts of the ceremony as well……after all it is an important day for them too!
Our Blessing Stone Ceremony
The “Blessing Stones” are a big hit with the guests. The couple is given a Blessing Stone and are asked to repeat a verse together after the Officiant. Then baskets of stones are passed around to all the guests. After the couple is pronounced, the guests follow them to the edge of the water and on the count of 3, everyone casts their stones into the water, making a wish or a blessing for the “Happy Couple”. It involves everyone that attends the wedding and is a touching end to the beach event.
You can also include other family members or friends in any of our beach wedding package ceremonies. They can lead in a prayer, read a poem, or sing, whatever you want!
Remembering those we have lost
Some of our ceremonies include Memorials to honor and remember a lost loved one. There are numerous ways in which this can be incorporated into a Sun and Sea Beach Wedding Ceremony. Give us a call and we can discuss.
