Beach Weddings allow for a less formal and in the case of the brides below, a much more comfortable attire, fit for running on the beach. The Sunkissed Newlyweds are Jim Carrey & Lauren Holly and Cindy Crawford & Rande Gerber.


3) Poems, Prayers & Promises

A romantic quote to elevate your mood or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.

"I wrote your name in the sand but the waves washed it away,
then I wrote it in the sky but the wind blew it away,
so I wrote it in my heart and that's where it will stay."



4) Kim's Wedding Tips!

We recently tied those knots and have tips, tricks and to be avoided stories to share:

A Word Or Two About Outdoor Weddings...

Check out the Farmer's Almanac! I picked the date of my wedding based on the times available and on the fact that it was the only Sunday that the almanac didn't call for rain.
Heat is often a consideration for weddings al fresco and should you be planning a wedding in the summer, you might want to consider having it early or late to keep people from overheating. It is a good idea to visit your site at the time that you plan to have the ceremony so you can see it as it will be - or to check out high and low tide marks.
In the case of a beach or any outdoor wedding be sure to have an alternate site for both the ceremony and the reception. A tent is always a good idea to protect both the food and your guests.

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

Many of our traditions were born in the days of "Marriage by Capture". One source says that after "kidnapping" his bride, the groom would take her and go into hiding. By the time the bride's family tracked them down the bride would probably already be pregnant! A "bride price" would then be negotiated. An earlier source is the early Jewish custom of the bride and groom spending a week together alone immediately after the marriage feast. The earliest reference to this practice is the old testament's account of Jacob's marriages to Leah and Rachel.
