We're sure to have a positive answer.
Fill out my contact form, it's on the bottom of every page.
I will call you ASAP. Then I will send a comprehensive email with core information to help you discuss your event as a couple, and enable you to confidently move forward with hiring our services.
We will ultimately require a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold the date. The amount required is based on the services that you confirm.
Everything regarding style and numbers of chairs remains flexible and changeable right up to a few days before your wedding.
The details will fall into place systematically, the entire process will be outlined in writing, well in advance.
Our goal is to ensure that you know, "we've got you covered" throughout the process.
We will help you to figure out a backup plan well in advance.
I always suggest combining a beach or outdoor wedding with a venue reception. Your rain back-up plan can often be built into the mix by using your Sarasota Wedding reception space for the actual wedding ceremony, if it becomes necessary.
With enough advance notice I can often exchange some of my decor to better fit your newly acquired indoor needs.
I try to do more for you in these cases, and afford as much flexibility as I possibly can. Timing and location changes are usually easy to accommodate since we deliver only one wedding per day.
For smaller weddings with the ability of all guests to shift the date on the fly, we've often accommodated our clients. Tomorrow might be a better day...If we are available.
Postponing a larger event by more than a day, is usually considered a cancellation with all monies forfeited.
Sarasota beaches are mostly thought of for Sunset Weddings.
Sunset is approximately
~6pm in January
~7pm in March
~8pm in April
~830 pm in June-July
~730pm in September
~7pm in October
~530pm in November- December
Depending upon the size and location of your event... Wedding start time should be about 1.5 hours before sunset.
Morning Weddings are great for pictures, but finish the event by 10:30am or you'll become uncomfortable in the sun.
A 9:30am start or earlier is recommended.
Beach permits are easily obtained and your respponsibility.
Most Sarasota Beach Weddings require a permit. It's approximately $100 for 2 hours which covers the timing needs of most beach wedding ceremony events. Some areas have pavilions for rent as well.
Call the Sarasota County Parks and Recreation Department @ 941-861-9930 to easily obtain your beach wedding permit over the phone with a credit card.
If you are serving alcohol, an additional rider is usually necessary.
I'm happy to give permit information about other beaches...give a call! I'll help get you settled.
The biggest hoax are those that call themselves Ministers after purchasing their criteria online.
I am a Florida Notary, licensed and vetted in Florida to deliver weddings, doing so for over 10 years now. I am a trained actor, and have been a public speaker and a corporate event planner for my entire life.
Whatever you'd like within your wedding will easily be delivered without prejudice. I love all cultures and all people.
I can deliver Catholic, Christian Protestant, Baptist and Mormon Weddings, non-Demonenational Weddings, Jewish Weddings, Spanish/English and Gay Weddings, all with the same conviction, intensity and passion.
I've also incorporated religious scripture, Hebrew, Spanish and even Chzek and Chinese phrases within my Sarasota Weddings, with the same positive results.
Aside from taking traditional roles within the wedding party, the best thing I've found to accomplish the inclusion of young children is by incorporating them into your sand ceremony.
I deliver words that inspire Brady Bunch Families (Your children and non-biological children) to share in the connection of this joyous experience.
Our Sand ceremony has meaning....It can solidify the combined outlook of your entire families shared life ahead.
We've been told it was the favorite part of everyone's experience as it marked the formation of a new family in a special way.
Hire me and I'll give you a few more ideas!
In a word....No!
I'll offer printing resources if you need and websites that sell things, but for most of the small stuff and fine tuning like giveaway bags and invitations, and managing your guest list, you'll need to take a hands on approach.
If you'd like one of my recommended day planners to stay by your side during your event day and more.... we are happy to recommend a few.
It's just not something that we can do effectively, while also handling your decor and ceremony.
We can take on the role of day planner or partial event planner for your event.....however the structure of your event would involve hiring and managing others to do what we do at a significant cost to you. Our starting fee to manage and event is $1500+.
In any case, if you'd like to explore what we can do beyond our outlined packages, call to discuss your needs.
Sure! Not every event requires all that we offer.
We can deliver any and all of our services ala carte. Most smaller scenarios with pricing are already outlined throughout my website.
From a 2 person wedding to anything you desire...I will have a positive, and cost effective answer to meet your needs.
which address many of the smaller wedding scenarios.
I will call you to discuss your details after you fill out our contact form.
When you are ready to move forward, an accurate written quote will always follow our conversation and subsequent hire .
I call myself a working organizer.
For most of the weddings we deliver, our approach eliminates the need for a traditional planner.
When we are present as a team, there's really very little left for a planner or venue host to do.
By your wedding date, we are all working on the same timeline that you helped to create. We have coordinated many details amongst ourselves and with our caterers, while always incorporating all of your specific requests. Each of us picks up seamlessly where the other drops off. We need little direction.
Your decor, timeline, music and details are already well thought out and discussed amongst all of us, the responsibilities of your event space have been defined well before we enter the room. It's an easy routine, that we've delivered countless times.
We now get to simply deliver your stellar event, exactly as you had hoped!
I call it my modern style delivery.
In my opinion, a traditional wedding with the couple's back turned toward their guests, looses a level of intimacy within the wedding. My style creates a better connection between the bride and groom and their guests.
My modern style delivery allows for eye contact, intimacy and hand holding for the couple, and a personal connection between the couple and their guests. It also allows me to directly address and include your guests in the thoughts and words shared. It's a level of intimacy that is consistently commented on in my reviews.
It also allows the photographer to focus on unimpeded pictures of the bride and groom without my big head in the way.
And finally it affords me the ability to smoothly and naturally transition throughout the wedding, actively fixing and changing sight-lines, and moving more naturally to deliver moments where your guests are spoken to directly, and where sand ceremonies, pictures, and personal vows would benefit from me being out of the way.
I am still happy to deliver a church style wedding if you desire. I will simply plant my feet. I actually would write the wedding ceremony a bit differently than I normally do. It takes on a more formal and stoic approach.
When I send my questionnaire to help write your ceremony, I will ask many questions to define your exact desires.
Your wedding will always be delivered...exactly as you wish!
Myself and my entire crew, deliver our services with the same respect inherently deserved by everyone.
We try to be kind and good to everyone. We try to always take the high road. Everyone matters and everyone who hires us deserves our best!
Our approach is to do whatever it takes to deliver your event smoothly in the chosen space.
With Decor, lighting and reception drapery packages; The best scenario is to work in a venue that allows us to set up a day in advance. I am happy to suggest the places that support our approach.
If we have the luxury of time...It's easiest and best to set the entire room a day in advance.
Without the luxury of time...additional costs occur when more people are needed to set up and break down under an imposed schedule.
Most catering venues will set up their own tables and chairs with basic linens for the reception on their own schedule and with their own crew. It usually occurs on the day of your event.
Table design in our opinion is the easiest part of a wedding.
I am happy to create and deliver the elements of your table design, from linens to centerpieces. If I am involved in your table design, I will supply all that's needed to put your table-top...over the top.
I often set up one table to allow the venue or catering team to mimic as they put the rest of the tables together.
Everything I supply is delivered in advance, ready for placement so the venue can simply set-up the room on their own time schedule if they desire to do so.
If you want to change everything at the onset, then you truly want a more customized event!
Great!!!! We can do that!!!
Whatever you desire, the answer is already, "Yes!"
Simply share your dreams and your budget concerns, and we will happily build you a sparkling and new customized wheel.
New wheels usually cost a lot more.

Most people actually conduct their own rehearsal sometime after our review meeting, when all guests involved have arrived.

Rehearsals on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, and rehearsals left to the night before your weekday or weekend wedding, are at additional cost. Call to discuss.
Best always to have your rehearsal a few days in advance of the event or simply schedule a call to review.
Although we recommend you use our offered services fully by allowing Allan to perform the ceremony....
To honor a friend, we suggest the best results come when allowing them to deliver a reading within your ceremony.
Yes, anyone you choose can lead the ceremony.
With our services they need only show up ready and willing to do so.
Your friend does not need to become ordained, become a clergy or have any certification.

We will do that for you!
We will simply legally marry you and stamp your documents in the background prior to the moment.
When you choose someone else to marry you, we won't teach them how to be an officiant.
We will simply hand them a microphone and take a back seat as we watch your event unfold. We'll provide the music, but not our voice.
This bride saved about a $1 per chair to avoid spending about $50 more with us. The result compromised our quality and interfered with our set up timing and process.
