Why We Do This

We know, it's cheesy, but we just love weddings! We are both retired, so we don't do this for a living.  It's about love and that special moment between two people when they promise to stand by one another for the rest of their lives. In a world that seems full of negativity sometimes, we get to help create a few minutes of pure joy and happiness with laughter, tears and a little romance. We believe the wedding ceremony should be something that inspires a couple to recall the most beautiful, carefree, loving moment of their relationship. That's how we look back on our wedding and we want nothing less for you.

Marriage Licenses

You will need one of the following:

  • Alabama Marriage Documents 
  • Florida Marriage License
  • Arkansas Marriage License (Steve is registered in Arkansas so you may bring your Arkansas Marriage License with you.)
  • Your state's Marriage License ONLY if you are certain your state allows it to be used  out of state.

Helpful Tip: Vacationing in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area? Consider getting a Florida Marriage License in Pensacola and having us marry you in Perdido Key. There is no beach wedding permit required and the beach is more secluded. Call Steve for details - 251-709-5007.
