Cherished Beach Weddings
My husband and I were planning a big wedding a year away. After much thought about the meaning of marriage, we wanted an intimate wedding for just the two of us prior to a big "to-do" that included our loved ones. We decided to marry in six weeks on a California beach. Since I reside in Texas, the wedding arrangments were made via phone and on-line. I researched "how to pick a wedding officiant" and learned that one should feel an instant connection. I contacted two wedding officiants and learned about their services. I didn't know how an "instant connection" should feel since after speaking to them, I felt nothing but informed. That was until I called Cherished Beach Weddings. After my quick briefing, Rebekah took it from there. She described everything that I had in mind for my intimate wedding. I finally felt it...that "instant connection". I booked her immediately. Since I wasn't in California, I described the type of beach I wanted to marry on and she made her recommendation and I went with it. For the next month, Rebekah checked in on us regularly. I did not have to initiate contact with her, which gave me one less thing to worry about. She recommended changing the wedding time from 11:00 to 1:00 to give my husband and I more time to prep (since I flew in the night before) and to ensure the early fog had burned off. On the day of our wedding, she arrived before us, picked the "perfect" location on the beach, and prepped the area for our ceremony. By the time I arrived, I was literally walking down to marry my husband. It was our first time meeting Rebekah in person and at the beach she recommended. Rebekah was right, it is beautiful and clean with very few people (a hidden jewel).
In summary, Rebekah was professional yet personal enough that I felt a geniune connection. She went an extra mile by sealing our day with an unexpected surprise that touched our hearts (which I will not reveal in my review). From our initial conversation, I trusted her judgement and recommendations since I was not physically in California to check on things prior to our wedding. I was blessed to find her because our day was perfect (location, wedding time, and ceremony/service). Thank you Cherished Beach Weddings, I wish you much success!
Cherished Beach Weddings turned out to be an excellent choice. My wife and I were looking for something on or by the beach that was simple and affordable. Rebekah and Cherished Beach Weddings made this special occasion beautiful and very memorable.
Cherished Beach Weddings is awesome!
