Yesterday's wedding at Lido Beach Resort was a washout as far as the beach was concerned.  We started the ceremony on the sand under a beautiful arch only to have lightening send us indoors.  We tried to wait for the sky to clear, but it just didn't happen as the dark clouds and lightening persisted.  So we held the rest of the ceremony inside and had a great time.  When the ceremony was over, everyone was able to go to a covered alcove adjacent to the pool for the cocktail hour.

Can rain put a damper on a ceremony?  The answer is, "Yes, if you let it."  We had fun despite the change in plans.  I had many comments about how meaningful, heartfelt and delightful the ceremony was.  Mission accomplished...rain or shine!  Here's to many more sunny days than rainy days here in our Sarasota Paradise.  Rev.

Busy Weekend

There were more than just fireworks at the beach this past weekend...there were beach weddings!  Both my hubby Rich and I were busy helping couples "tie the knot."  One ceremony was an elopement and I also conducted a Baby Blessing (Baptism) at the beach which was lovely and fun.

Typically, the summer months are a slower time for us, but this year there are many couples who will find joy in marrying here in the Greater Sarasota/Bradenton area.  I guess it's because it is so beautiful here all year 'round.  If you live here or have ever visited our area, you know what I'm talking about. our couples who are blessed to find the beauty of our beaches, we welcome you!
Until next time,
