Dear Bride and Groom
I know that you are facing many challenges in your life at this time and planning
a wedding or not belonging to a church in our area may be in that list.
In your search, you will run across many beach wedding web pages and a sea of
information that can be more confusing; therefore, I am writing this letter to

care who you are... Welcome home.
Sometimes, when I am standing there with you, I find myself caught up in your
emotions and I have to remind myself to breathe. That is how I know that I have
The bottom line is that you choose to be married and for society to recognize
your marriage you need a signed piece of paper from an Ordained Minister,
Judge, Magistrate or an Officiant. If you want someone that will cry with you,
offer you a hankie, pray with you or not and help make your wedding day
heartfelt, warm and memorable and if you want someone that will become a
friend, dance with you at your wedding, (after all, I look at the water just like
you... I don't walk on it.) I would welcome the opportunity to be that someone.
