Frequently Asked Questions
There are only three states in the United States where a notary can perform a marriage ceremony. Those states are Florida, South Carolina and Maine.
What is Unity Sandy?
Using two separate vases of different colored sands, the bride and the groom pour the sands into a single "Unity Vase" while they recite a special statement. Unity Sand Ceremony represents the unification of separate individuals into a new, single, and whole entity. The Unity Sands are used to symbolize an indivisible union because once merged, the separately colored grains of sand can never be separated. This is also a wonderful way for children of the bride and groom to be directly involved and part of the indivisible union with their own distinct color of sand.
The Unity Vase is often kept as a memento of the wedding ceremony and kept on display in the couple's home.
*Vase Shape may vary depending
What are Blessing Stones?
When a wedding is outside and near water, Blessing stones are provided for the couple not only for themselves but for the wedding party and guests as well. After the ceremony all follow the bride and groom’s recessional to the water, make a wish or blessing for them and cast their stone into the water. Children are especially fond of this.
Where can we have our ceremony?
The sky is the limit when it comes to your ceremony location. If you live in the area or know someone who does, do you have a picuresque backyard? Florida has many beaches that will accomodate your ceremony. Beach in Sarasota was voted #1 beach in the United States! How about a local park on the water? and in Punta Gorda are quite beautiful. If you can dream it, we will do our best to fullfill it!
Please be aware that some beaches and parks require a reservation and fee for a permit and parking may be limited and/or also have a fee, which is not included in the wedding package price.
Can you explain how the photographer charges?
The photographer is included in your package price. The best thing about this is....you will be able to print your own pictures in what ever sizes you like at your local Walgreens or Walmart. We will not impose any rights to the pictures and charge you an outrageous amount of money that most photographers do for their packages of photos. All of your photos will be stored on a memory card that is yours to keep.
