Chalkboard Signs


I try to mark your wedding on the beach. 

In some cases locations are hidden.  On peak dates, multiple Sarasota Weddings can occur on the same beach, 

I set a trail of signs to easily distinguish when and where your wedding will be.  

Fun signs


I have a series of appropriate signs that add substance, presence  and character to any wedding set-up.  

They lean more toward casual beach themed weddings and are in the style as shown. If you like the idea... Let me surprise you by choosing the ones that best reflect your wedding.

Aisle Entrance Gates or Markers

As you enter and later exit your ceremony aisle, we usually enhance the area by combining gates, signs and greenery and a few other flourishes to provide enough elegant decor to enhance your photos along every step of the way.

Silk Bouquets to Borrow


Live bouquets from a florist can often run over $200.

A few casual beach wedding clients have used freshmarket flower bouquets bought for as little as $20.

If live flowers are not as important to you, I always have a small assortment of White Silk Rose and Orchid bouquets to borrow. (One is shown above.) 

We will reconfirm your desires at the final review before your ceremony.

Creative Ideas and Resources


There are so many ways to make your wedding unique. 

Throwing beach balls instead of rice is just one of many ideas.  We've seen them all;  Bubbles, fans, programs, and a ton of incentive items. 

We are happy to steer you in the right direction in answer to any request. E-mail is always responded to quickly. Calls M-TH are welcome up to 9pm.

I'll meet you in the space


On a M-TH at 10:30am, a few days before your wedding, I will meet you for a final review at your location if you desire. 

We will stamp your documents, collect any final balance due, and make sure that all details are confirmed and will be delivered exactly as you wish. Your comfort and confidence is my goal.

I can also conduct a rehearsal at that time, or teach you how to conduct your own rehearsal to match your own schedule.  


I do not attend rehearsals scheduled the night before your event, nor on a Friday-Sunday without additional fees. I usually do weddings on these days. My presence at your (walking-in and walking-out) rehearsal is usually unnecessary.

 If meeting in person is impossible, a phone call with the bride and groom will easily deliver all that's necessary.

I reserve the day before your event for  final preparation; loading the truck and a final review of your ceremony and event needs, so all details are delivered as promised or better.

We are a team of two directing the event from all angles to ensure your comfort, and that your party and guests are always in the right place at the right time.

And Lastly......

Ceremonial Tables


We have a number of tables that coordinate with our decor packages. 

Our tables are the perfect height, and are pretty enough to not require a tablecloth fluttering in the wind. 

I will always bring the best table that matches your decor style and ceremonial needs.

I'll Notarize Your Marriage License


I'm a licensed Florida Notary. My handling of money is vetted as honest, and I have no criminal background.  

I am happy to hand deliver your marriage license to the Clerk in Manatee or Sarasota County.  

Beyond that I have nothing to'll have my home address.

I'll write your ceremony


I will send you a questionnaire upon hire.  It will define your desires and give me the material I need to personalize your event.

Your wedding ceremony will be delivered in writing, well in advance, and can be edited further. 

Your ceremony will become exactly as you wish.

Planning Services

When I work with you solely on your beach wedding ceremony, there's little additional planning needed. 

Our wedding ceremony details are fully outlined on our website. In our process, together we will explore and add many personalized touches to complete your event.  For us it's a no-brainer!  

My designer and I will be present on your wedding day, so your wedding ceremony is managed properly from two points, covering your arrival area and the ceremony space.

When we are involved additionally with design, lighting and decor for your Sarasota Wedding Reception, that too, will quickly become fully organized in the same fashion.

We will then happily invest our time to help you find the reception space that best meets your logistical needs, and budget.

Another 5 Star Weddingwire Review

Allan made our Wedding day spectacular! 

Look no further! You found the best planner for a fun wedding in the area! 

He really cares and delivers an intimate and joyous experience.The whole thing was flawless! 

Our beach wedding was followed with even more beautiful reception decor, drapery and lighting, and a perfect dais was set up in advance at our country club. 

Allan and his team did a phenomenal job for us in both places. 

Allan recommended his photographer Rick who was absolutely great! We cried when we saw how beautiful the pictures were. His DJ Jorge kept us on the dance floor for longer than we ever expected. 

These guys are simply a great team! Hire them!
Jeff and Donna
