Jim Burkhardt and Nina Lovern chose to have their wedding ceremony standing in the Gulf of Mexico. Eight of their best friends as well as Nina's son, Daniel, were invited to stand in a circle witnessing the ceremony. The lovely Hand and Beach Ceremony was chosen and timed so that the first part of the ceremony was said before the sun went down. At that point, I stopped the ceremony, we all watched the sun go down and Shabbat (the Sabbath) had begun. The ceremony then commenced. It was beautiful. Nina and Jim's friends from Georgia were part of the inner circle and Ray Shavers played the guitar. His fiance, Rebecca Harris, joined him in singing as we all continued to stand in the Gulf. Nina has been a realtor in the Naples, Florida area for 17 years. Jim is the founder and CEO of SnTRadio.com and SnT Records as well as Mixing Engineer for SnT Records. The couple reside in Naples, Florida.
