A Fort Desoto Ceremony

Flawless Occasions recently added an officiating service to our coordinating packages. This weekend I was honored to officiate a ceremony for a wonderful couple - and this was quite a unique ceremony. The couple is French-Canadian so almost all of their family speaks French. Because of this, I had to have an interpreter, a friend of the family, translate the ceremony so that the guests could understand. It was a really fun, new experience for me!

Yves and Rachel were married on Fort Desoto Beach in front of 15 close friends and family.. along with several other holiday-weekend beach patrons. I helped them put together their ceremony which integrated my scripts with their own version of a sand ceremony and a champagne toast at the end. It was really cute - this couple was extremely excited to get married. They were so excited, in fact, that they were ready early and we started 15 minutes ahead of time since everyone was there!

Their children played musical instruments as Rachel came down the sand pathway to our bamboo arch. The family talked and laughed throughout the ceremony - it was very warm and informal. Yves and Rachel, congratulations and thanks for choosing me to officiate and coordinate your lovely beach ceremony!
Here are a few photos from the ceremony!
