  • 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.) 
  • We will be happy to set up our "Sweet and Simple" arbor with the complementary Sand Ceremony table  for your wedding for an additional $140. (See below)
  • We sign and return your marriage license afterward.  
  • We offer help getting a certified copy of your marriage license from Baldwin County. (I provide an "in-county" check so you won't have to purchase a money order.) 
  • We are happy to put you in contact with professional photographers, chair rental companies, florists and other vendors. 
  • We would be happy to take a few pictures for you after the ceremony. We have posted a few photos We have taken here. Some are of our family and others are of nice couples we have married. 

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.

Spiritual Couples please note: We often have requests for "spiritual, but not religious" ceremonies. We understand and are experienced with ceremonies that reflect your wishes.

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.

Sweet & Simple Arbor and Sand Ceremony Table Rental

Sweet and Simple Arbor

Wedding Arbor at Bama Weddings

This year we have decided to offer an arbor to our clients because so many couples have asked for something "sweet, simple and affordable."

The arbor you see here is bamboo with white chiffon fabric, bamboo vases and sea oats type greenery.

Free sand ceremony table with Arbor rental if requested.

We will have it completely set up approximately 45 minutes prior to your wedding at your location for $140. There is a $50 deposit that is part of the total.

You are welcome to add flowers or tie ribbons to the arbor in your wedding colors if you like.

We do not offer chairs, however we will be happy to recommend the appropriate vendors.

Sand Ceremony Table

 If you plan to incorporate the Sand Ceremony into your wedding, the table is a must. It is the perfect size.  It is round, 28 inches high and 24 inches in diameter. You are welcome to bring a table cloth.   

It is complementary.

This arbor and table may be set up behind any beach house, condominium or hotel in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach or Ft. Morgan without the purchase of a Beach Wedding Permit.

Further, it may be set up at the Gulf State Park Pavilion's 2nd boardwalk, Cotton Bayou or Alabama Point East access points only if the park's $60 Beach Wedding Permit has been purchased. Please contact us for the permit.

At Perdido Key Florida, it may be set up at any of the state beach access points. No permit is required

Arbor Rental - $140 (Add sand ceremony table at no additional charge).

Total Cost to Rent the Arbor and Table - $140
