Please not that we are are in Cocoa Beach from March 1st through April 7th, but don't let that stop you! C'mon down to see us! We have some specials for our New England friends who come to us through that time period! Visit our Cocoa Beach Website for more info...



We are your one stop specialists for simple, fun, and romantic Rhode Island weddings that combine affordable photography packages with our very unique non-denominational officiant services. We also create unique photo artistic imagery by transforming select wedding moments into spectacular artworks that look great on canvas, metal, calendars, thank you cards, or on regular printing paper stock. Specializing in nontraditional wedding ceremonies and photography, our weddings are hand made in America.

Weddings by the Sea (Or Anywhere!)

Having a RI beach wedding? then you've found the right Beachpeople! As "Mom and Pop" beach wedding specialists (and card carrying elder beach hippies), we specialize in a very relaxed, personal and comfortable experience for both local and destination couples, and after 12 years and thousands of weddings on beaches on the barrier islands of the Carolinas and the Atlantic Florida coast, I seriously doubt that we could be surpassed for our experience (or love of) beach weddings! And as reiki masters and healing drummers, our ceremonies are uniquely suited to couples seeking a more intimate and feelings oriented, "inner child" experience.

Not having a beach wedding, but still would like our services? We do those too!

“Nothing could make me feel closer to you than a wedding day that’s easy – and all ours. There’s something very real and permanent about a big day that’s actually small, where what’s most memorable about the celebration is not the fancy menu or the décor…but the love.” Kristine Gasbarre

“If we could do it all again we’d try harder to take it all in. It’s a magical day, but very surreal and it’s easy to get carried along and lose hours of time in what feels like minutes. I’m not sure it’s possible, but listen to people when they tell you to take a minute to savor it all!” - Sophie

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  Maya Angelou

“Escape the tedium of mediocrity”  Marlon Brando




Imagine a wedding ceremony that is so much more…

more feelings, more romance, more fun, more about what’s important to you

Imagine a wedding ceremony that is so much less...

less stress, less feeling afterward that it fell short of delivering what you hoped for

Imagine a wedding ceremony that you actually remember

because with "normal", amazing is not possible

Imagine a wedding ceremony for lovers

Re-imagine your wedding!

For our New England couples, Beachpeople Weddings are transitioning to a new name for 2014... Weddings with a Heart!

Why the change? While beach weddings are the norm for our Florida clients... but not so much for New Englanders, so to avoid the confusion with the name "Beachpeople" implying that we only offer beach wedding services (we offer our services anywhere), it was time for a renaming. That said, we are still THE beach wedding experts, bringing the attitude of the beach anywhere!
