Beach Weddings in PCB

  • Gentle ocean breezes.
  • Waves lapping along the shoreline.
  • Powdery sand beneath your feet.
  • Glowing sunsets.
  • Shimmering sunshine.
  • Emerald waters stretching to the horizon.

This is just the beginning of the list of reasons brides and grooms choose to get married in one of nature’s most peaceful and pristine settings – the beach.

Amanda Nichols, owner of Beach Beginnings Weddings and Events, has been planning and officiating beach weddings since 2001. The beach offers romance and beauty for the couple that desires a more intimate setting. It also offers adventure for couples who want a more dramatic event.

Perhaps the best part of planning a wedding on the beach is having a planner. Beach Beginnings Weddings and Events offers various packages to couples that include decorations, seating, bridal and bridal party bouquets, photography, videography, special ceremonies, sand art and a la carte items such as tiki torches and other decorations. Marriage licensing and an officiant also are part of the planning process.

Couples like the convenience and the affordability of a beach wedding. With Beach Beginnings Weddings and Events, pricing varies depending on the needs and wants of the bride and groom. Packages can accommodate up to 50 guests and can be as simple or elaborate as a budget allows. For example, a bridal bouquet ranges from $15 to $95, and a simple ceremony starts at $175 and can go upwards of $3,000, depending on what the couple desires as part of their special day.  

Many beach venues are convenient for a ceremony and reception, which Amanda can arrange, including a simple two-tier wedding cake starting at $125 and catering. Preparation of the wedding site, set up and breakdown are included in every wedding package.  Beach Beginnings even offers bridal makeup and hair styling to withstand beachy breezes on the wedding day.
