Hi, I'm Mark Whitten. Thank you for visiting my Beach Wedding Page. It would be my pleasure to assist you and your significant other in preparing for your special day on the beach!
I specialize in Christian weddings and vow renewals, catering to a wide variety of Christian denominations and non-denominational church expressions.
I generally operate as a subcontractor for other beach wedding services, but can definitely work with you if you are looking to create your own, private ceremony. However, I do not offer props such as chairs, arbors, flowers, decorations, etc.
Standard Package: includes officiating the ceremony, signature on the marriage certificate, and a bound, printed copy of the service/vows for your memory. ($200)
Premium Package: includes pre-marriage counseling session, worksheets, and recommended reading list, all of the above Standard Package options, and participation in rehearsal dinner and/or reception. ($500)
If you would like to discuss a more unique approach, please contact me and we can discuss pricing.
