Beach Weddings - Uniting happy couples on the Gulf Coast since 1984

We provide a minister, Fred Saas, to conduct a simple, heartfelt ceremony on a beautiful Gulf Coast beach (we have a favorite beach) or other setting of your choice. This is a romantic way to elope or have a small to large, informal to formal ceremony surrounded by nature. Beach weddings may be held on Perdido Key in Florida or Alabama at Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, local beaches or bayous, your home, a condo, etc..

The total fee is only $150 to have the minister meet you at your location of choice and perform your ceremony. Included at no extra charge is guidance in all aspects of your planning: cakes, flowers, beach locations, coordinating the wedding party, and much more. Our Minister, Fred Saas, has performed 1,182 weddings to date. Your small fee supports the wildlife habitat restoration and educational projects at the Biophilia Nature Center.

A call to the Minister at 251 987-1200 is the simplest, fastest way to get your wedding questions answered. He can also suggest inexpensive, high-quality photographers and caterers.
