Thanks for considering Clearwater Notary and Weddings! We’re a small informal company and intimate weddings are our game!
Well let’s get to it! Here’s our fancy sales e-mail **smile**
We can come to your location, perform your ceremony and legalize your paperwork for as low as $100.00, depending on your officiate choice, location and date/time! There are discounts for midweek ceremonies and “Local Area” ceremonies!! I have quoted for your chosen location and time at the end of this e-mail.
We have choices for your Officiate! Who do you see for your wedding? We have men and women, young and old, spiritual and religious! We have Ministers or Civil Servants! Let me know who you’re looking for, and I can probably make that happen!
I have attached a few of my favorite ceremonies for you to look through. There are additional ceremonies on my web-site www.clearwaternotaryandweddings.com. Part of the service is helping you create a ceremony reading that is unique to you! The ceremonies we have are very fluid, if you like sections of several, and want to combine them, we can always personalize them in any way you like. If you have wording you'd like to insert into any ceremony, just ask! We'll perform any ceremony you choose.
Most couples want to have a rehearsal; A rehearsal prepares everyone for what they need to do and where they need to go. If you want a more "formal" ceremony with the bride walking down the aisle and the father giving her away etc., I would seriously consider a rehearsal. We could do it the same day, an hour or so before the event, or a weekday rehearsal for $25.00 or if you're doing traditional the evening before on a weekend, the cost will be $50.
We marry most of our couples on the beach. Clearwater/St. Pete is known for their beautiful beaches and stunning sunsets. Don’t like the beach? No matter we’ll marry you anywhere you choose!!
Indian RocksBeach has beautiful hard sand beaches and yummy restaurants…best of the GulfCoast without the giant hotels. Indian Rocks is our local beach and we offer a discount for this location!! http://www.pinellascounty.org/virtual_tours/irba_beach.htm Lovely Private Tiki Gardens-Indian Shores has plenty of metered parking and stunning beach views! http://www.pinellascounty.org/virtual_tours/tiki_beach.htm
Treasure Island and Sunset Beach are very popular http://www.mytreasureisland.org/recreation/beach_pavilion.htm as is the Treasure Island Beach Trail area http://treasureislandbeachtrail.com/yourtrail.htm. I LOVE SUNSET VISTA PARK http://www.florida-beach-lifestyle.com/sunset-vista-beach.html right on the corner of Gulf Boulevard and West Gulf Blvd. SO cute!! Here is a link to all the Treasure Island Parks. http://www.mytreasureisland.org/recreation/parks.htm
Parks Parks Parks!! Pinellas County has a beach park close to you! Honeymoon Island is so beautiful, and so huge, there is ALWAYS a quiet secluded spot. http://www.floridastateparks.org/honeymoonisland/. If you want pristine beach views, without all the tourists, try War Veterans Memorial Park http://www.pinellascounty.org/park/23_War_Vets.htm . Check out Shelter #5. It's very private, has stunning views, plenty of room, and a small beach if you want sand =). Finally, a bit of a drive, but Ft. DeSoto is MARVELOUS!! Stunning views of the Gulf AND Tampa Bay, pristine white sand, plus the gorgeous architecture of the Sunshine Skyway. http://www.pinellascounty.org/park/05_ft_desoto.htm
Prefer a garden location? Sunken Gardens is a local treasure! As St. Petersburg's oldest living museum, this 100 year old garden is home to some of the oldest tropical plants in the region.
If you'd like more location suggestions, let me know. I know some great restaurants on the beach where we could do it and there's be a place for the reception right there, or there's historic St. Petersburg, or crazy fun Clearwater Beach...so many choices! Let me know what you're looking for.
Most folks doing beach weddings like to keep it casual, so we created a wonderful program called Photo Buddy! We ask local Photography students to come and work as Interns, and they get real world experience for their studies. We also have some new grads breaking into the business for the first time. I preview each Photo Buddy’s work before they start with me, and I personally direct photo shoots that I officiate so you know you’re getting quality pictures!!!
Photo Buddy’s can be available to take photos of your entire ceremony for as low as $100.00!! This price includes a superior quality photo student or new professional to take casual shots during your ceremony and posed shots after. We generally take photos until we run out of light, batteries or you get bored with us!! Finally, we burn the pics to a CD and all the photos are yours to keep! No proofs or prints to buy! It’s a very nice deal.
Your Photo Buddy is skilled in Photoshop and Digital Album creation. Talk to them about making your Wedding Photos even MORE spectacular!!

We have some folks We've worked with before who are professional wedding photographers. VERY nice work, some of the pics on my website were taken by them. If you're interested in a professional photographer, let me know and I'll send along some recommendations. http://www.clearwaternotaryandweddings.com/photographers.aspx
Music & Sound:
Our equipment doesn't require electricity, so we can bring music to the beach or other outdoor locations. We have a small collection of wedding music if you'd like, or you can bring your own music and we'll play it on our system. We can use cassettes, cd's and mp3's. We even have microphones if you need them! If you would like us to bring our mini-PA System for music or amplification of your ceremony We charge between $25 and $75 dollars depending on what portion(s) of the system you'd require.
We also know some very good musicians and DJ’s if you'd like live music. Let me know if you're interested and I'll introduce you.
