I'm a licensed Florida Notary.
My well honed services as your officiant are included with our decor packages (use or lose)
or ala carte....
$550 "officiant only" with mic and music, and processional helper at the location of your choice.
For those that want a friend to deliver the ceremony; I am happy to actually sign your marriage license effectively "marrying you" ahead of the ceremony....thus allowing anyone you choose to perform the ceremony on the beach.
Your friend performing your ceremony does not need to buy fake ministry credentials online nor do they need any credentials at all to lead the ceremony.
One caveat; we will not teach anyone how to do the job.
After the ceremony, I can validate and hand deliver your marriage license to the Clerk in Manatee or Sarasota County.
Our Brand New BOSE Sound-System will deliver music and voice for up to 250 people.
Allan uses a Shure Handheld Wireless Mic and controls the music while delivering your ceremony on his iPad Pro.
All systems are battery powered and self contained.
You can expect crystal clear uninterrupted sound on your event in any location chosen.
Our Clean White Padded Chairs are NEW. They are never used for food service, nor stored outside, so they remain sparkling new, blemish and rip free.
Beyond the 40 chairs included with our decor packages, additional chairs are just $5 each.
We have 100 on hand and can always get more.
We offer many other chair styles at additional cost. But clean padded white folding chairs, used only for wedding ceremonies are our standard.
Only one caveat....all chairs used in our packaged set-ups are to be provided by us.
For our beach wedding packages....
A safe place and landing station to leave belongings, with two chairs to sit on while removing shoes.
Grab a bottle of Ice cold water from the provided cooler of bottled water.
Pick up a shell for the shell toss after the ceremony.
We supply a few small baskets for any give-away-items if needed.
One basket becomes a place to deposit any garbage so our beaches remain clean and safe for wildlife.
We comb the sand to highlight your wedding area, the aisle is smoothed as well. The first guests to arrive see the effect the best.
We try to keep the aisle fresh and un-walked upon for the processional.
The setting is usually ready for our photographer about 30 minutes before you arrive.
I always try to text a picture to you as we finish the set-up on your big day.
For our beach wedding packages....
We always bring a good amount of bottled water kept on ice.
A cooler will await your guests next to the entrance sitting area at your Sarasota Beach Wedding.
Your chosen music is provided for Processional and Recessional.
Music starts a few minutes before the wedding and ends about 10 mins after the ceremony.
We are happy to deliver your first dance on the beach.
Our Bose sound system and Shure wireless mic with Allan Z as your officiant ensures a fantastic experience.
Our White Carpet Aisle Runner goes best with our Modern Canopy Designs .....but if you want to wiggle your toes in the sand, we will happily comb the sand instead.
It's all about your style.
It's real carpet, not a plastic runner that would trip you as you walk.
Carpet is not used when it's raining, drizzling or if wet ground occurs.
We have a special white carpet aisle runner for inside events as well - no sand stuck to it.
We bring live greenery from our own gardens to accent many areas around the ceremony set up.
Entrance areas, Canopy bases, sitting area, and freestanding signs, are all given a special touch to make your setting as photogenic as it can be along every step of the way.
Our Wedding Canopies are delivered complete.
Your chosen concept styling continues onto the aisle chairs and into your entire wedding area to create a complete setting for your event...
Live Native Greenery from our gardens add extra flourishes to fully define the space.
Our most popular high quality white silk florals on our arches and canopies complete the picture.
People often lean in to smell them...the good quality has fooled many.
On request we've added additional flourishes of colors into our floral designs.
In our opinion, a neutral canopy is the best to supply a sort of "picture frame" of your event and helps to define the scale of the environment around you.
The live flowers in your hands will allow you to be the pop of color in the scene.
Sometimes white silk flowers just don't hit the mark.
Red Florals work best for a Tommy Bahama Style wedding with our Bamboo Canopy or Modern Canopy
Our red tropical silk flowers simply offers another option within the package price.
Styling will continue onto aisle chairs, and is available in place of our white floral design.
In place of florals or in combination;
For a more beachy theme, we will happily add a variety of Starfish and shells to your canopy, aisle chairs, and more.
Some weddings have opted for NO flowers at all, using our shell decor entirely. Some have requested no shells....
It's all about Your Style....
We will discuss and reconfirm your desires as the wedding approaches. flowers, shells, or a combination...as you wish!
For our beach wedding packages....
I try to mark your wedding on the beach using a few chalk signs that distinguish the start time and your names associated with your wedding.
In some cases locations are hidden.
On peak dates, multiple Sarasota Weddings can occur on the same beach, so your arriving guests won't be confused as to which wedding is yours
I set a trail of signs to easily distinguish when and where your wedding will be.
For our beach wedding packages....
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.
No need to micromanage...we'll bring the right ones that reflect your wedding,
Your choice is.."yes or no."
As you enter and later exit your ceremony aisle, we usually enhance the area by combining aisle decor flourishes, signs and greenery
Each of our decor designs includes a few special decor flourishes to enhance your photos along every step of the way.
Live bouquets from a florist can often run over $200.
A few beach wedding clients have used freshmarket flower bouquets bought for as little as $20.
It's all about what's important to you!
We always suggest the bride to arrive with a live bouquet, however....
We do have a small assortment of white bouquets to borrow if needed. (One is shown above.)
We will reconfirm your desires at the final review before your ceremony.
We usually keep just two on hand.
There are so many ways to make your wedding fun and 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.
To be honest....on the beach, programs and bottled bubbles in our opinion, are a waste of money.
Bubbles keep people from clapping at the end of your ceremony and kids spill them on the chairs. Consider our Industrial strength Bubble machine for better results.
Printed programs are more often left behind and if you thought you needed a fan and I agreed...we'd both be wrong LOL.
If you still want them, or something more to buy... let's talk.....I know where to send you.
In discussions ahead we will offer many more ideas to create memorable moments wihtin your ceremony and celebration.
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 don't need a rehearsal, but your comfort and confidence is my goal.
We will stamp your documents, collect any final balance due, and calmly make sure that all details are confirmed and set to be delivered exactly as you wish.
My presence at your (walking-in and walking-out) rehearsal is usually unnecessary.
If meeting in person is NOT possible, a phone call with the bride and groom will easily deliver all that's necessary.
On your day, we are a team of two directing the ceremony event from all angles to ensure everyone's comfort.
We will make sure that your party and guests are always in the right place at the right time.
We have a number of tables that coordinate with our decor packages.
We actually wear them out and replace them often. I'm sorry that you can't pick your specific table out from pictures but....
Our tables are the perfect height, and are pretty enough to not require a tablecloth fluttering to become a sail in the wind.
I will always bring the best table that matches your decor style and ceremonial needs.
I'm a licensed Florida Notary. My handling of money is vetted as honest, and I have no criminal background.
I am happiest when delivering ceremonies as your officiant.
I am also happy to actually sign your marriage license effectively "marrying you" thus allowing anyone you choose to perform the ceremony on the beach.
I can hand deliver your marriage license to the Clerk in Manatee or Sarasota County.
Beyond that expect honesty, professionalism and integrity....
I always remind people I have nothing to hide....you already have my home address.
Once hired as your officiant...
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.
Let's not complicate things!
I am not your "full event wedding planner" unless I am additionally hired to be part of your reception event.
When I work with you solely on your wedding ceremony, there's little additional planning needed.
I'm happy to make venue suggestions and offer advice, but your connection with your reception venue in another location is on your own.
Our wedding ceremony details are fully outlined on our website.
Unless hired for your reception decor additionally, our focus will remain only on your ceremony.
On the day we will be present to manage your wedding ceremony completely and autonomously.
We cover all aspects of your arrival area, the ceremony space and delivery of the ceremony decor itself.
There's no need to involve any seperately hired day planners to direct our services, we are self directed.
When we are involved additionally with your reception decor and setting; table design, lighting and drapery decor....etc... That portion of your event will also become fully organized in the same fashion.
We are a small team.
Using our services for both the reception and ceremony usually requires the entire event to occur in one event location, or with set up time allowed a day in advance..
We have several event spaces that we can recommend that logistically allow us to be involved in both your beach (or garden ceremony) followed by a venue reception.
If you initially need help with figuring out the right reception location, feel free to call. I'll happily make suggestions.
Will I run you around to find locations like a realtor???..."Nope!"
Hire us for the beach wedding portion of your event and we will happily share our knowledge to help you find the wedding ceremony and reception space that best meets your logistical needs, budget and style.
It's easiest to work with people that we know, trust and respect.
Trust our recommendations. Our suggested reception venues and vendor team loves doing this as much as we do!
We also have a history of working together to ensure a great experience and outcome for our mutual clients.
We will put you in direct touch with our people so there are no communication gaps.
Behind the scenes we are always communicating to ensure we collectively deliver our best for you.
When you blindly search the internet to obtain the lowest priced vendors that you can find, remember that you are now creating an experimental wedding with people working together for the very first time.
"The bitterness of poor quality far outlasts the sweetness of low price"
We have many stories of those who dismissed our advice.
We have witnessed countless clueless venues, photographers, musicians, DJ's, videographers, photo booths, make-up artists, officiants, and additionally hired day planners who in our opinion destroyed the entire experience for the bride or were insufficient in doing their job.
Allow us to steer you clear of making the same mistakes.
"Low price" and "perfect" are not often found in the same sentence with "weddings."
There's no fixing things after a wedding.
As a former New Yorker I've been exposed to every religion and culture. I truly love them all...and the food!!.
I also treat everyone I meet with the respect and love that they inherently deserve.
I deliver ceremonies that reflect YOU...
They can include or just as easily, not include religion.
I deliver equally well; Christian, Catholic, Baptist and Protestant, Bilingual Spanish-English, and English-Hebrew, Bahai, and Gay Sarasota wedding ceremonies.
Many examples are within my site.
I will deliver your Sarasota Wedding Ceremony with respect and authenticity to your respective religion, and in a way that positively reflects your connection to your family and friends.
We will happily add scripture and religious excerpts into your ceremony that we deliver.
The only caveat ; we simply do not co-officiate.
We love when friends are given the honor of delivering a reading within your ceremony,
when we are not acting as your officiant, we won't teach your friend how to do the job.
And in our opinion you've lost the experience that we bring to the table.
It's all up to you.
If you desire a different officiant, a minister that you know, or a friend to deliver the most important day in your life......
the answer is "Yes."
We will happily deliver your decor and musical cues, while your officiant leads the entire event.
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 included our religion. It included readings by our dearest friends, and reflected our wishes and spirit.
The ceremony was followed with an even more beautiful reception
Allan and Luis provided 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 spaces.
Allan recommended his photographer Rick who was absolutely great! We cried when we saw how beautiful the pictures were. His DJ kept us on the dance floor for much longer than we ever expected. It was the best day of our lives!!
These guys are simply a great team! Hire them!
Jeff and Donna
