Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Below is a template to work from as it relates to day of coordination, timelines and recommended order of ceremonies. We have also provided a Sample Program and Wedding Music Template to assist! You may also add this information to your Wedding Website as it applies. We will see you on the Beach!
Below is the ceremony template to work from – please note much of this is personal preference, we simply make recommendations as to flow and our experience conducting similar Beach Ceremonies! You may use your Own Vows, Readings, Verses, etc. as you see fit. Here is a very helpful link: Ceremony & Vows
The ceremony itself will last approximately 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the bridal party, wording of the ceremony and any additional readings/poems/Unity Sand, etc. We prefer to have picture time immediately following to get group shots, combinations and more intimate shots of just the couple/immediate family. This is how we back into our Sunset Times which account for 15 minutes of late guests, overcast weather, and simply extra time to wait for the perfect sunset photos.

Photographer – Videographer – Live Musician Timeframe
Most couples elect for a one hour session of Photography, Videography, or Live Musician or some combination thereof. All can be reserved for additional time however, the typical 1-hour reservation for each breaks down as follows. *Please note the Photographer & Videographer willshoot alongside one another (however, they are different vendors altogether):
*The only difference for the Live Musician is they will start playing as the guests arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony, Entrance & Exit music, + 15-20 minutes following the ceremony during the start of picture time. Typically, they will break down as the couple moves towards the shoreline to get their Intimate Photo/Video.
