Ceremony Timeline

Day-Of Timeline

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!

1-3 Hrs Prior:  Setup
30-45 minutes Prior:  Spouse/Groom, Groomsmen and Guests Arrive
20 minutes Prior:  Bridal/Spousal Party Arrive
On Schedule:  Ceremony (20-30 minutes depending on Bridal Party Size, Readings, Ceremony, etc.)
20-30 minutes Post:  *Post-Ceremony Photo & Video
30-60 minutes Post:  Takedown
*The only exception is the ‘Intimacy Package’ which may have a compressed timeline as there are much fewer guests (if any).
**If applicable.  You may use your own Photo/Video – this is typical of a beach ceremony.  Tent Reception to begin immediately following the ceremony, we recommend starting 30-45 minutes prior to allow time following and for takedown prior to dusk.

Ceremony Template

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.
