Where to stay for my Gulf Shores or Orange Beach Wedding?

Are you coming down to South Alabama for a Gulf Shores or Orange Beach Wedding? We have lots of options for lodging. You could stay at a hotel, a resort, a condo, a beach house, or even camp at the Gulf State Park.


A condo could be a great option. Condo’s have all the amenities to make your stay in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach very enjoyable. Most have pools and some even have live music poolside. A condo is a little more expensive than a hotel but if you would like to have a little extra room and can afford it, condo life might be for you. Check out Meyer Vacation Rentals for some great rates.


Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have some great hotels that are right on the beach. These hotels are a great budget friendly option. Most have very nice pools and great access to the beach. Check out the Hilton Garden Inn Orange Beach . They are centrally located. Orange Beach is just a short drive to Gulf Shores. So maybe a beach front hotel is right for you.

Beach House

The beach house is our favorite option. Because you can actually have your wedding on the beach behind the house. You can have your reception right there under the house. The house is on pilings and can be decorated for a great reception. We can rent you everything you may need for your reception. We own and operate Uptown Event Rentals. The beach house option can be more expensive than the rest of the options but if you have several families coming down together for the wedding then you could all pitch in together to rent the house for the week. Check out Kaiser Vacation Rentals for specials they are running. Also another favorite is Meyer Vacation Rentals

Jesus compared us to sheep. Why?

The Good Sheppard

Jesus, called us sheep! I used to be offended by that. Especially when I found that sheep  are the dumbest animals that probably ever lived. Sheep are followers. They have one job. Follow the Sheppard. But sometimes they even got that wrong. By nature sheep follow. If we are like a sheep it means that we all follow something. We can follow after success, relationships, money, fame, material things, and so on. What, or who are you following? As a sheep we are to stay close to the Sheppard. Follow the Sheppard wherever he goes. But we are prone to wonder as the old hymn says. Our heart goes beating after other things. I used to see a picture of Jesus where He was carrying a little sheep. I know you have too. We may be prone to think, “Wow Jesus really loves that sheep”! Well He does love it! But He is carries that sheep for another reason. The reason? If a Sheppard had a sheep that just kept wondering off, kept getting into problems, kept going towards a cliff, and kept straying after other things, the Sheppard would take his rod and crack its leg so it couldn’t walk into trouble anymore. The Sheppard did this to save it’s life. We may say that’s just mean. But actually the sheep would become so close to the Sheppard through this that the sheep would never leave the Sheppard’s side again. My point? Sometimes only pain and suffering will get our attention and the Good Sheppard knows it. He knows that if we keep going on the path we are on that something terrible is gonna happen to us. The USA Today had a report that in 2005, 1500 sheep fell off a cliff. Do you know why? Because one fell off the  cliff. The other’s just followed. Sheep are followers and if we are not following the Good Sheppard we are destined for destruction! What are you following today? I pray that you are following the Sheppard. I pray that you will start today before it’s too late! 


John 10 New International Version (NIV)

The Good Shepherd and His Sheep

10 “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.

Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.a] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.

Marriage on cruise control


Marriage on Cruise Control

Cruise Control is great in a vehicle on long trips. I like to set it on the interstate and just drive. I don’t use it on short trips like to the grocery store or the gas station. Marriage is not meant to be a short trip so we start to put it on cruise control. Cruise Control is great for a long drive but terrible for your marriage! Marriage is for the long haul. So many marriages get stuck in cruise control though. What can you do today for your spouse to shake things up a bit? Maybe a foot rub? A massage? Kind words? Bring him a cup of coffee? Buy her some flowers for no reason? It is so easy for marriage to get complacent. Don’t let it happen to you! The good thing is your not stuck. You can turn things around today. God’s word tells us that the enemy wants to steal, kill, and destroy you. Maybe he can’t get your to cheat on your spouse so he tries to ruin your marriage through cruise control. You feel stuck and things never seem to change. Try something today if you feel stuck. Tonight before you go to bed, dust off your Bible and just read it together. Pray together! I challenge you to do this. Even if you think it won’t help. I am sure it will! Take the cruise control off today! Read God’s word, Pray together and for each other, and do something kind for your spouse! You will see immediate results.

In marriage, it’s the little things that count! Practice Kindness


Random Acts of Kindness

Try practicing “rak” random acts of kindness. Marriage is about the big things but also the little things. Try giving your spouse a massage, put a note in their brief case or lunch. Get creative. Kindness goes a long way in any relationship. Most of us are only used to doing random acts of kindness on special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries. It would be a great thing in our marriages if we could train ourselves to just do one thing a day. It doesn’t have to be a big act. Just something small to let your spouse know that you appreciate them. It will come full circle I promise. You can start by just saying kind words. Build your spouse up! Especially in public. Mother Teresa once said “Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless.”

The same advice I give my kids I give to myself and all of us married couples. “Be Nice, Be kind”! It really does go a long way. 

Galatians 5:22 [Full Chapter]

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Beach Wedding Packages for Gulf Shores and Orange Beach

fairytale beach weddings

There are so many companies out there now that offer what we have offered for the past 15 years. It is easy to get upset that people are trying to copy our business and our wedding packages. Some have even plagiarized our website and logo! However we try to be flattered by it. We are the best! People want to copy the best! When you are searching for a wedding company look at how long they have been in business and their reputation. Many of our competitors do not even tell you anything about themselves in an “about us” page. Be selective when choosing someone to plan your wedding in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach! Look at reviews. What do brides say about them? We have seen some companies take couples money and not even show up on the day of the wedding. We would love to be your wedding provider. We believe we are a good fit for a lot of folks. Beach Weddings in Alabama are so romantic and we have the experience to make sure your day is great!


Billy Graham Dies at 99. A great man of God that fought the good fight! The world will miss you!

Billy Graham dead at 99

Billy Graham was such an iconic person in our American culture. But he didn’t what that. What he really wanted to do was make Jesus famous. Do yourself a favor and look him up on youtube and listen to a sermon today. He would want you to know that being born again is the only way to get to the kingdom of God. Do you know that?
