Our Services

What We Do

  • Steve or Bev (your choice) come to any location you choose including (but not limited to) Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Fairhope, Fort Morgan, Perdido Key or Johnson Beach. (Sorry, we do not travel to Dauphin Island or Pensacola Beach.)  
  • We officiate weddings and vow renewals on the beach and in churches, homes and special venues all over south Alabama and Northwest Florida.
  • We are ordained, licensed professional Ministers/Officiants. Steve has 30+ years of pastoral experience. 
  • We are authorized to solemnize marriages in all states.  
  • We perform your choice of a Christian or Non-Religious ceremony which you are welcome to customize, including readings, vows and unity ceremonies (sand, candle, knot, etc.) 
  • We offer unlimited email/text/phone consultation and recommendations for wedding locations. 
  • We are happy to obtain a State of Alabama Beach Wedding Permit for you if one is required. (The state charges $60. We won't charge anything to get one for you.)  Please note: This is NOT your marriage license. This is a permit allowing you to be married on public beaches.
  • We sign and return your marriage license afterward.  
  • We provide an "in-county" check so you won't have to purchase a money order or cashiers check for your certified copy to be mailed to you from Baldwin County. 
  • We are happy to put you in contact with professional photographers. Even so, we are happy to take a few photos after the ceremony and email them to you for no charge. 
  • All of the arbors, chairs, etc. you see in the pictures on this website are placed by our friends. We partner with the best "set up" companies along the coast and will be happy to put you in touch with some great people!

Helpful Tip: If you hire a wedding "set up" company that can provide an officiant in its package, ask what they charge for the officiant. You can probably bring me for a lot less cost. 

Christian couples please note: We understand that most people are cautious about the religious style of a destination minister.  We choose to be low-key and totally non-denominational. Over the years, many couples have noted their appreciation that our Christian ceremonies are faithful but not "preachy." We are both Christian.

Non-Religious couples please note: We understand the need for non-religious, civil ceremonies. We respect everyone's right and honor your point of view. We are happy to perform a completely non-religious ceremony if you like. 

Why We Do This

We know, it's cheesy, but we just love weddings! It isn't about money with us. 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 License
  • Florida Marriage License
  • Arkansas Marriage License
  • 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.
