August 23 - Jeff and Stephanie Hinkle marry

When the sun is shining in the morning, at this time of year, we know it is not going to last, for the most part. So as usual, I started praying. Well, the sun went away, the thunder roared, but it didn't rain for Jeff and Stephanie's ceremony on the beach of the Marco Island Marriott. It could have been the beach at the Riviera. We just kept walking to the right until there were no people because this was private, just for the two of them. They've been together for 22 years, and just recently decided on the spur of the moment to get married. I'm so glad they chose me.

August 8, 2016 - Awesome

It was a gloomy and sometimes rainy day. The wedding between Renee Fugate and Ryan Crowder was scheduled for 6:45 at the Naples Beach Club beach. Mark Block was going to take photos, and we were all praying it would not rain. The ceremony chosen was the lovely Hand and Beach ceremony. As I went through the ceremony, I reached the part where the couple bowed their heads for a word of prayer. As I finished the prayer, the skies opened up into a round circle and the sun shone through as bright and clear as could be!

Better Days are Coming - August 6, 2016

August has been a very rainy month so far, more than usual as I recall the last 20 years on Marco Island. As a result, the weddings are slow. September is looking great. There are some dates still available. So feel free to submit in the contact form. Questions? Call me at 239-248-4851. Your call will always be returned if I am not available. I have weddings booked into August 2017. God has been good to me. So keep on checking.

Weddings by Phyllis Update - July 30, 2016

This has been a great seven months for me. Some couples call me at the last minute while others plan well in advance. I have weddings booked into late 2017. So far, the rain has not been a problem from January to July. Although June to November is rainy season in Florida, I'm flexible enough to change the times or dates if I can to accommodate my bridal/renewal couples. They have all been so gracious with their comments and I truly appreciate them. Every bride has a glow in her eye whether this is the first, second or third marriage.
