If you are having a beach wedding, be sure to give some thought to what kind of shoes you will be wearing. Pretty shoes with high heels will look great at your reception. But during your beach wedding ceremony, they will sink down in the sand and become flats. You might want to have one pair of shoes for your reception and a different pair for the beach ceremony. Many brides wear simple shoes such as decorative flip-flops for the ceremony. Better yet, look for a dazzling foot-wrap such as...

Many couples ask me about “decorating the beach” for their wedding. I would like to give my opinion about decorating the beach, but this is only my opinion (based on 17 years in the wedding business) YOUR opinion is the only one that counts when it comes to your wedding.   Keep it simple. The beach is naturally very pretty, just as it is and requires very little to dress it up. A simple arch would provide a nice framework for your pictures and helps to define the wedding area. If at...

You may be planning to do some special act or rituals during your wedding ceremony or after. The Hawaiian sand ceremony, “wish to the sea”, “jumping the broom” and walking through a gauntlet of swords, bubbles or sparklers are all popular. These are great ways to personalize your ceremony; and they offer excellent photo opportunities. Just be sure to talk to your photographer in advance so he/she can be ready and in place to get the best shots. Also the photographer can recommend the timing of such acts. For instance,...
