If you want to get married at the Pensacola lighthouse all I have to say is great, you have picked were the most beautiful areas to have your wedding. The Pensacola lighthouse is located at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola with a beautiful view of the inter-coastal waterway and the mouth of the bay. If you’re thinking about having your wedding outside there are some very old oak trees for shade or on the white sand beach overlooking the Pensacola Pass. This airy offers more privacy because it is on a military base. If you want to climb the lighthouse be sure to bring your stamina and strong legs. It is quite a climb but well worth it. If you come during a Blue Angels practice you will find your view quite outstanding. You can also stay there on the base providing you are military or retired military. There are plenty of hotels in the Pensacola area for your guests to stay. There is also the Hanukkah White House tour which I would recommend to anyone, as long as you don’t scare easily.
For those of you who are wondering about Perdido Key let me just tell you how beautiful it is. Can you say whites sand and calm water? Sunshine lots of sunshine. The perfect place for a beach wedding in Florida. While you’re here you can check out a blue angels practice. It’s really exciting. The precision jets fly in arresting patterns and it’s loud and proud. Just watching them fly by is invigorating. After that you can go to the reef to catch a bite to eat and maybe some live music. There so many beautiful condominiums with excellent views of the Gulf of Mexico. Sitting outside with your coffee in the morning and watching the Dolphins’ play is a moment time you will never forget. I’ll be seeing you on the beach.

Yesterday was a wonderful day visiting with friends including my good friend Stephanie. She had the beach wedding of a lifetime in Hawaii. Talk about a happy bride! Her wedding shower was full of friends and family. The food was scrumptious. Most people brought home made food which is always the best. I brought a cake covered in fruit and no, I didn’t make it but it was yummy. Her shower gifts were both sexy and funny but mine was a little different.My gift to Stephanie was something I made for her and it was a hit at the shower. I started out with a well made plain white t shirt. Then I went to a craft store and bought some cute iron on letters and a big fake diamond ring. After arranging the letters to say “He put a ring on it!”, I followed the directions to iron on the letters and let it rest. I didn’t dot the i in the word ring, had other plans for that. Then I took the diamond ring and used that to dot the i with. On the jet going from Los Angeles to Hawaii, Stephanie wore her shirt. The flight attendants saw the shirt and asked her about it and she told the story. Needless to say Stephanie and her hubby to be were moved to first class with champagne. How fab is that? So a little home made shirt led to a wonderful flight. Love it!
Yes my angels it’s happened. You must figure out where you’re going to stay in the wide world of hotels and condos. You want a tree house? We are at the beach not the forest so there will be no more talk of tree houses. You’ve been watching too much tv. Onward with the condos. I like condos for couples regardless of where other people are staying and this includes houses. I know, you are asking why. Why indeed! One great thing about going with a condo is the two of you will privacy when you need it and believe me after the wedding and reception, you’re going to need it. You are going to want to spend your honeymoon night away from everyone. It’s no fun when there are constantly people pecking on the door when you’re trying to get romantic. Another great thing about condos over hotel rooms is what you get;a real kitchen with full size refrigerator and stove, a full size bath room (a must have), a living area, a separate bedroom. And the best part a balcony facing the Gulf of Mexico and it doesn’t get any better than that. Imagine waking up with the one you love and walking out onto the balcony and paradise is stretched out before you. Bliss!
The wearing of the green has come and gone and what a day it was on Pensacola Beach. The spring breakers were out in force wearing the green and enjoying the sun. It was very nice on the beach. I’ve done beach weddings on St. Patrick’s Day before and always incorporated the green into the design I was doing at the time. Did you know at one time blue was the color for St. Patrick’s Day? This was back in the 1700’s and no one from that time is still around. In Irish mythology, Flaitheas Eireann, the sovereignty of Ireland, was represented as a women in a blue robe. The color was also known as St. Patrick’s blue but over the years the color green became more popular. Maybe shamrocks had something to do with it. No one knows for sure when the blue turned into green. So now we drink green beer, dye rivers green, pinch people who don’t wear green and act completely silly for a day for the sake of green. So kiss me I’m not Irish. Just kidding I think everyone in the United States has some Irish in them somewhere. So come out to the beach next year, wear your green, spring break your self silly and get married on the beach. I’ll be wearing blue and green just because. There’s a song in there somewhere.
This was a small wedding on the sand. Both families were very reserved. At first I didn’t understand why. Then I realized something had happened but I never knew what it was. A beach wedding for the most part is happy and joyous. But this one was reserved. I’m not sure what calamity had befallen the wedding party. I don’t pry because it just doesn’t make things any better and I didn’t want to seem nosy. I knew pictures were going to be difficult so I told my photographer to get as many as he could while the ceremony was going on. I’ve had somber weddings before and getting people to do anything can be frustrating. And I was correct about this one as well. Immediately after the wedding it was almost impossible to get the bride and groom to pose for pictures. It was like pulling teeth. We couldn’t get a smile out of anyone. There had to have been a tragedy for this to happen. The whole wedding party was getting ready to leave so I went up to the groom and asked him if there was anything I could do and he thanked me and said something bad had happened prior to coming to Florida and he didn’t want to talk about it so I didn’t push it. If you don’t want to talk I respect that.
