Cocoa Beach Nautical Knot -- Detailed explanation of Cocoa Beach Nautical Knot Package
2-35 participants (including bridal party): This package is for smaller beach weddings, please note the number of participants limit.
- Officiant, who will perform, and coordinate, your beach wedding ceremony: legal person to perform your Florida wedding ceremony, and help coordinate your beach wedding ceremony on the beach. Our officiant can also perform your vow renewal ceremony (no marriage license required because you are already married) If you want to have your own minister or officiant: ceremony must be no longer than 20 minutes. We do not give any credits or discounts because you won't be using our officiant. Our officiant will still be present to help with ceremony coordination.
- Elite Beach Weddings will provide ceremonies and vows for you to choose from: several different ceremonies to choose from, from religious to civil. Of course, you can have your own personal vows.
- Beach location in the Port Canaveral/Cocoa Beach area, with reasonable access --in some areas, you may need to obtain permission from property management. Most beach weddings take place at a couple of the beach parks. Several of the hotels have great beach access and will let you have a beach wedding there. Just remember, when making reservations, ask about their beach area for your wedding. Some of the hotels are starting to charge to use their beach for a wedding (I do not agree with this practice!)
- Consultations by phone and email: We are available by phone and email when you need any information.
- Final beach wedding ceremony agenda will be provided: Approximately one week before your ceremony date, we will provide you with a detailed ceremony agenda which will confirm all of your ceremony decor, beach wedding location, plus a detailed timeline of your ceremony. You will receive a general timeline in your wedding packet, however we repeat everything specific to your beach wedding ceremony, so you can rest assured everything is covered.
- Legal filing of your Florida marriage license: We will take your Florida marriage license that you have obtained, we will sign and stamp in after the ceremony and return it to the courthouse for legal filing. There are no more signatures required, but our officiants, after the ceremony. We do not file your Florida marriage license if you are having your own officiant/minister.
