Dreamy Beach Weddings

Beach ATD

Haven't posted in awhile...been enjoying my winter break! But, I have to say..I'm ready to be back on the beaches working!!

I met a bride at my beach office yesterday in Orange Beach...took her down on the beach to see where her wedding would be...she gasped and said "How Perfect."

Wide open white sand....no wooden loungers....no lifeguard shacks.......no giant white storage boxes...no other weddings...just wide open sand and a few beachgoers....Ahhh.

I let my daughter and her friend play and shell hunt to their hearts content.

CHANDELIERS

I feel like posting today...about chandeliers. I don't know, I guess something just kinda dinged in my head today about some of the chandeliers I've been seeing out on the beach. Old, rusty, paint chipping off (possibly supposed to be shabby?), dingy, dirty crystals (that DON'T shine in the sun).. which brings me to my post..
 
I was part of the beginning of the trend in our area, and as usual, I'm getting copied, but the part that gets me, isthe meaning of it is getting lost

Summer Heat!

Another Beautiful day in Paradise! It was hot though, and we have another one today! Gotta say, I love the weekdays weddings. The roads and beaches are a little more quiet, and we still have the weekend ahead of us!
 
Yesterday's wedding went off without a hitch, but the heat was brutal to work in. This is why you hire people do to the work!! Do not impose on your guests to work for you on their vacation in this heat! That's why you hire us! I'm burnt, and sore, but getting ready to go do it again - cause this is what I do!

BEWARE OF PUBLIC BEACH WEDDINGS!!

6/17/2013
 
I haven't posted in a long time; I've been really busy with a child in school, softball, theatre, and weddings...but, I feel compelled to post about something....
 
I got a text from my daughter's first grade teacher on Saturday, 6/15/13. She was at Alabama Point Public Beach Access, located near the Pass (the big bridge between Alabama & Florida). She said she saw 6 weddings all in a row all right there on the same beach.
 
Now, I'm not sure who all the companies were that did that.

Weddings in full swing!

Wow! Where did April & May go? We completed 5 April weddings - all were great and went off without a hitch! The wind was fierce this April, but no competition for me & my crew! We did have to scale back flowers on one arbor due to the weight - but my florist had done the arrangements so beautifully, nobody noticed. We had a white & turquoise wedding, 2 purple weddings, a red wedding...the colors just go on and on....April is great - you can get away with just about anything!
 

A GREAT START...

We started off our 2011 season with a Blue Angels Fly By - just as the minister was walking down the aisle! It was awesome! Hopefully, I will have some pictures to put up soon!

Wedding Packages

I received an email from a bride today that included a list of things she wanted included in her package. I found this interesting, as I'm sure she's been shopping around. What intrigued me about this list is that many of the things she asked for are free services we offer our clients. 
 
On the list of requests were:
 
Phone/ email consultations
Marriage License Information
Assist with Guest Accomodations (refer hotels)
Legal Filing of Marriage License (this is a STAMP!)
Assistance finding location of ceremony & reception

Wow! What a busy season already! My tip for all you spring & summer brides out there is to get your big stuff booked now! Book your beach house or condo and get your entertainment booked right away too! Oh, and you better book me soon too - we are closing out many dates already!
