Do you know what could be killing your relationship? HINT: It’s in your pocket or in your hand right now.

Yes, you guessed it. Your Smart phone could be killing your relationship. The smart phone is a wonderful tool but also can kill the romance in your relationship. Paradise Beach Weddings Inc. wants you to have a great Gulf Shores beach wedding but we also want you to have a great marriage! We’ve all seen it. The person that is constantly checking their phone. It’s fine to do that some time but not when you are with company and especially the company of your spouse! Not only is it killing romance but also tearing families apart. All you have to do is go out to eat at any restaurant these days and look around at the families that are out to dinner. They are more than likely looking at their phone. Kids included! We don’t know how to talk to each other anymore. My wife and I see it all the time when we are with couple friends. Here is some research that might make you feel differently about reaching for your phone the next time you are with your sweetheart. 

A team of researchers thought that smartphones might be making relationships worse, so they wrangled 170 college kids who were in committed relationships to see what role their phones were playing.

In the study, published in the journal Psychology of Popular Media Culture, the college lovebirds were asked to report on their own smartphone use: how dependent they felt on their device, and how much it would bother them to go without it for a day. They then answered similar questions about their own partner’s smartphone dependency.

It didn’t matter much how much a person used their device, but how much a person needed their device did. People who were more dependent on their smartphones reported being less certain about their partnerships. People who felt that their partners were overly dependent on their devices said they were less satisfied in their relationship.

In other words, people get jealous of their partner’s smartphone. “I’m more likely to think my relationship is doomed the more I believe my partner needs that thing,” explains Matthew Lapierre, a ssistant professor in the department of communication at the University of Arizona, who authored the study with his former undergraduate student Meleah Lewis . “It’s not use; it’s the psychological relationship to that device.”

If you are married, put your phone away at the dinner table. That is another thing that people don’t feel comfortable doing anymore. Share a meal together and look face to face! Real intimacy begins when you can put your phone down! Your spouse should not have to get jealous of your phone addiction! In a world that we are always getting calls, sending reviewing texts, getting on social media, and etc., we are losing touch with the ones we love. Social Media was supposed to bring us closer together and it has made us farther apart than ever. Try baby steps at first. Just try going out on a date and leaving the phone in the car. Try eating a meal with your phone out of reach. Go on vacation and leave your phone behind. Unplug your life! All of your relationships will improve.

Will you write your own vows for your Gulf Shores Beach Weddings?

Writing your own vows are a great way to really personalize your ceremony for your Gulf Shores beach wedding! You certainly do not have to but some do. You can write them in a little note book and read them to your groom or spouse. It will be something that you will cherish for a lifetime. We can do the traditional vows along with your vows or we could do just your vows or just ours. It is important when you are writing your vows however to have something that you are vowing to do. Sometimes it is is easy to just say how much you love your spouse and forget that the vows are supposed to be promising something. Marriage is a covenant and your vows should reflect the covenant that you are making. What are you promising in your vows? Here is an idea below. 


I am reminded of James 1:17 Where it says that every good and perfect gift comes from above.

(Name) you are truly a Gift from God and I promise to spend the rest of my life treating you as such.

I will cherish you always and never take you for granted.

I will lead you and guide you as Christ leads me.

I will follow His teachings and obey His commands.

I will lead by example, with patience, and with understanding.

I will be slow to anger, and quick to listen.

I will be a strong spiritual leader in our home through good times and bad, in joy and in sorrow.

I will love you and be faithful to you alone from this day forward until God calls us home.

This is my solemn pledge to you and to God.


Have fun! Writing your vows are fun. Don’t worry about what everyone will think. Your vows are for your Bride or Groom. Remember you can just use our traditional vows if you don’t want to bother with writing your own. Most use the vows our Minister provides. See you soon!

Something that really needs to be addressed with those of you that are booked already.

A destination wedding is meant to be fun and less stressful than a traditional wedding. However, it is imperative that your wedding starts at the scheduled time. Sometimes our ministers and photographers will  have more than one wedding in a day. A delay can affect your time with your photographer if she has another appointment after you. Our sunset weddings are very popular. If you are late, you jeopardize the best lighting.  A 15 minute delay can be a lot when the sun is setting. Your guests drive along way to come and see you get married, so  do not leave them waiting out on the beach. We realize that most people are from out of town and it is possible to make a wrong turn.  This is why we ask that you and your guests please arrive 30 minutes early.    Here are some things you can do.

  1. Make sure everyone has clear instruction and directions on where the location of the wedding is. 
  2. Stress to your guests that we have to begin on time! 
  3. Do not send someone back to the condo or beach house last minute to pick something up. ( It is not worth getting married in the dark after the sun sets because someone forgot a bouquet or boutineer. ) The traffic at the beach can be very heavy.
  4. Make sure someone who is prone to getting lost rides with someone instead of driving themselves. We had a mother of the groom take a wrong turn recently and ended up being 1 hour away from the venue. Unfortunately we had to start without her because we were running out of light. If Aunt Sally is directionally challenged make sure she rides with someone or follows someone. The Gulf State Park Pavilion Beach is like 5 minutes from just about anywhere in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. It really isn’t that hard to find. 
  5. This one is the most important: Arrive at the time your photographer tells you to arrive! If she tells you to be there 30 minutes prior to the ceremony that is when everyone needs to be there. If you are there after she tells you to be there you are already late.

    We want to make sure your wedding in stress free and fun! We have just seen a few of our wedding getting started late lately and some of it can be avoided.
