Services of Destination Weddings of Florida, Inc.

Hello future Bride and Groom! Thanks for taking the time to see what we have to offer. We know that there are a lot of good companies out there that do what we do, so we appreciate you taking the time to look at us and what we feel we uniquely offer.

You may just want to elope and have a simple ceremony for two at a park, or garden, or at your home, during  sunrise or sunset on the beach. You may prefer a more elaborate, but fun and easy wedding, The sky is really the limit of what we can do to make your Wedding Day as special as you want it to be. 

Maybe you’re already married and due for a vow renewal. Why not start fresh and invest in your marriage again, and remember what it feels like to be newlyweds. Maybe you want a commitment ceremony?  We think love is love and should be honored and respected all the same.
(All couples~welcome!)
 

We promise if you give us the chance to help you celebrate your love for each other, we will do our best to help reduce your responsibilities and help you plan your fun, romantic, and stress-free ceremony on your favorite sandy beach, tropical lush garden, or beautiful park in Florida and beyond. You really only will have to worry about getting your marriage license before hand, and finding your perfect clothes to wear. Keep in mind, most places we service, shoes are optional.
