Weddings by the sea
Charles is such a laid back person it’s hard not to like him. He helped us plan our ceremony exactly how we wanted. We wanted something short, sweet, and to the point and that’s exactly what we got. The rehearsal was also something that we weren’t going to do, but Charles suggested that it’s a good idea, and oh boy was he right!
weddings by the sea's Charles is very knowledgeable about the south florida area and is able to make suggestions on where to hold your cerermony if you want a beach or ourdoor wedding. His wife Shirley organizes the contractors such as flowers, limo, etc.
They are running a mom and pop business, so they don't have contracting paperwork available as readily as a national business would, but they're helpful and responsive to every request.
I am happy we went with WBTS because they are taking care of everything from the Limo reservation to the personal flowers, the ceremony location reservation with the city, set-up and take down of all the chairs, decorations, arch, hiring the officiant, and organizing the ceremony structure (including personalizing it as we desire) It's a relief to know that all of these things are being taken care of for one low price!
Officiant: We liked the officiant Charles. When it came close to the wedding (about a week or so prior) I had some questions/ concerns I felt like Charles was hard to get in touch with. He did not seem friendly at the rehearsal & at the end of the rehearsal we were all a little confused. So I give a 4 for my overall experience but a 5 for the outcome.
Rentals: The chairs were all there. That was all we rented from them was the chairs & the officiant.
They were very good. They make it so that you don't have to go anywhere else to get things done. They help you plan the wedding. Everything from finding a location to a place to get your hair done, something that they also provide. They are also inexpensive. They do everything from small to big weddings. Charles was a very nice person and very helpful.
We have been shooting weddings for Charles and Shirley for about five years now. They have been doing this in South Florida for over 25 years and done literally countless weddings. I've probably done 50 myself with Charles as the officiant, and he's just silky smooth every time. They do it all, chairs, officiants, flowers, arches, etc...You can depend on them to get your day off smoothly and dependably.
