♥ You were TERRIFIC!!
"As both my husband and I are in our 60s and have no close family, we decided to have a simple, private ceremony at a local botanical garden, with no attendees.
Debra provided the perfect text for our service as well as incorporating some vows I wished to add. At a time when I wouldn't have noticed a meteor strike, I found myself appreciating her warmth and cheer."
Thank you again for making the happiest moment in my life even better.
Carolyn & Richard, Fairchild Tropical Gardens, Coral Gables.
♥ Dear Madison, Thank you for your kind email. Santi and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude for officiating such a wonderful ceremony for us. It was heartfelt and organized. Thank you for writing such beautiful vows and guiding Santi and me during the actual ceremony. Finally, your work was so timely sent to us that this really helped ease wedding-day anxiety as the wedding day got closer. We cannot be more thankful!\What would be the best address where we could send you a thank you card? In the future, don't hesitate to use us as a reference for your work.
Best wishes,--Jessi and Santi , Crandon Park, Key Biscayne
♥ Hi Deb, No words can express just how incredibly happy we all are with how everything turned out. It was our pleasure to have you all involved on the special day. Everything was simply beautiful, professional and your team was just so nice it felt like you all were part of the family. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! from Laura, on behalf of the newlywed couple,

♥ It was amazing working with them. They helped us in everything we asked, Debra and Madison were always ready to solve any questions related to, not only the ceremony, but everything else as well. When we first contacted them, we were clueless about how to plan or organize a wedding. They gave us directions in many ways so we could start the process of planning such a special day. They shared with us invaluable information without even knowing if we would end up working with them which thankfully we did. They were kind, well informed and incredibly professional in their work. We would absolutely recommend working with Madison and Debra at Barefoot To Elegant Weddings..

♥ Let me give a very detailed review and kinda walk you through my experience, for anyone considering using Deb as their wedding officiant. From the first conversation a month ago all the way to our wedding yesterday, she kept in touch and let us know everything that was going on. She was also very flexible since I ordered champagne at the last minute (day before) and she was able to get it for us. She wrote our beautiful vows, provided the bouquet, boutonniere, arch, rose petals in the shape of a heart, I mean, what more could we ask for? She was EXTREMELY professional, friendly and VERY POSITIVE. I am not just saying that, she really is. The best part is, her price is very reasonable and affordable compared to alot of other officiants we considered. Without her,our wedding would not have been possible at all, definitely a recommendation for ANYONE considering a beach wedding. She is awesome.

♥ Madison and Deb created the most beautiful vows that were super appropriate to our lives and even included my husbands two children. The sand ceremony was beautiful as well.

♥ Deb, "I can’t express how meaningful our day was, and it couldn’t have been the same without you there. I have a bunch of pictures with you in it that our friend took, and you’ll have your own special page in our scrapbook. We were so very happy with you and how free you let us be. The vows were lovely and we’ll cherish them forever. If I ever hear of anyone getting married in our circle of friends, you’d better bet word of mouth will travel from us to them about you!!! Thanks again for making our experience perfect and for the lovely pictures you took!!!!" Valorie & Mike - Backyard, Kendall
♥ Hi Deb & Roca, "Thank you very much for your job, we are very happy today. Have a good weekend." Priscila & Guilhermme, South Beach
♥ Deb, "You made my day extra special and I could not have found anyone better to do the ceremony. I almost feel like I was robbed! We should have had more time to get to know each other. I feel like the brides who have planned their wedding days with you in advance have had the opportunity to bond with you the way I would have liked to. You are an amazing woman and your light shines so bright that I could feel your energy radiate through... We had a wonderful day... He is my soul-mate and we laughed together when it was all over because when you said the lines about sense of humor...that's US all the way..everything you touched on really meant something to each of us and although you don't know us you spoke words as if you'd been friends with us the past 2 years.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You truly have chosen a job that inspires." -

♥ Mrs. Deb was truly a God send for us! She spent a lot of time working with me prior to the ceremony. She catered to us more than I've ever heard of a wedding officiant to do. My husband & I decided to get married in Miami, just the two of us. We had never been to Miami & knew no one there, much less our way around. Mrs. Deb picked us up from the airport. She brought us to our hotel. Not only did she patiently wait while we got ready, but she steamed our attire with a hand held steamer! She took pictures of us before & while we were getting ready. She video taped me reading a heartfelt letter from my mother. Then after the ceremony was complete, she stayed at least 1 hour photographing us in & out of the water!!!!! This meant so much to us, especially since we wanted all of the luxuries that people pay for on that special day, but we could not afford at the time. She suggested places for us to go. She even called back later on to check on us & see how we were doing. There was something about Mrs. Deb that made her feel like family & that we'd known her our whole lives! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who desires a truly sincere officiant! She is not just in it for the money. That's another thing, she was the most reasonably priced officiant I found after calling 15 or so people! You know the saying, you get what you pay for? That certainly did not apply in this case!
Thanks Mrs. Deb, you were a blessing! Kristy & Joshua
♥ Deb of Beach Weddings of Miami took the "stress" out of a destination wedding. Deb is one of those people that professionalism and honesty come naturally to her. All of my guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was & that Deb was the reason!
If you are planning a South Florida wedding then you should plan to call Deb!!
♥ Now that one month has come and gone, Ricardo and I wanted to send a sincere thank you for making our (albeit last minute) wedding possible. We couldn’t appreciate more your flexibility, creativity, helpfulness and friendly attitude. It’s hard to believe that we pulled the wedding together on such short notice – and yet you were able to put us at ease and helped everything fall perfectly into place. It’s quite the gift; you’re certainly in the right business! Dianna & Ricardo, Deering Estate
♥ With our unique situation for our wedding, there were many things working against us for this occasion. We live in North Florida, Shane was working in Colorado, most of our family is in South Florida and, even with Shane's dad's health at the time, setting a date and pulling off a private backyard wedding in the Redland for the day before Christmas Eve was quite a challenge. We were very lucky I found you! You took the time, via phone and email, to get to know Shane and I, our distinct personalities and preferences for the event. The vows and ceremony were customized just for us! You were even able to work in the acknowledgement and celebration of the unity in our two families, including my teenage son and Shane's baby-boy pup's unity as brothers. That was very special to us. And then the day of the event came and your services went above and beyond! As of that day, you were not someone who came to officiate our nuptials, you were part of the family! You and Roca joined in the fun of the prep and set up, the getting everyone ready, the ceremony, and then the celebration afterwards. The entire family loved you two! You both laughed and cried right along with the rest of us! I'm so thankful that you came into our lives and helped make the day so perfect, we will never forget you for that. We cherish the memories, now more than ever since losing Pop Jay just 6 short months after the occasion. The pictures hang high and bold in our homes, but the memories will hang tough and strong in our hearts forever. Thank you and thanks Roca. You will always be our first recommendation should someone be planning such a special day. Shane & Amy, The Redland
♥ I knew from the first ten seconds on the phone with Deb that she was going to be the one to marry us. I was a bundle of nerves since we’d be planning from out of state but there wasn’t one question I could throw at her that she didn’t have an answer or solution to! Each time we spoke I felt more and more at ease. I wasn’t going to have a video originally but 5 days before I changed my mind so I reached out to her. In LESS than 30 minutes she was back to me to say it was all taken care of! It amazes me to this day! So, wedding day arrives followed by butterflies in my stomach…I was going to be someone’s wife…and thanks to Deb and Roca it was PERFECT. The ceremony, every word spoken, the flowers, the sand ceremony, heart in the sand…all flawless, personal, memorable…the most joy I’ve ever felt. And oh the photos! Not just of us, but of our families…beautiful beyond measure. They took that another step and used the cameras of our family members to capture more pictures! On that day I not only welcomed a husband in to my heart, I welcomed lifelong friends and no words can describe how blessed I feel for that. I’m so grateful that they were there for the beginning of our happily ever after. When we renew our vows someday, not having Deb there isn’t an option. No matter the place or time or the amount of people, I promise Deb will make it unforgettable!
There should really be more than 5 stars!
♥ Thank you for the pictures Deb! Mike and I agreed that our day could not have been more perfect! Thank You for everything and as soon as I get our pics from Dana back I will let you know.
Angela & Mike, Bill Baggs State Park, Key Biscayne
♥ It was an absolute pleasure working with Deb. Her customer service is impeccable! No matter how busy she is, she's always responsive and ready to answer any questions you may have....and always with a smile. It is obvious that she cares about each of her clients, and making them happy and excited about every detail of their wedding day. She even took the most beautiful photos of us after our ceremony! She truly made our day special, and I would absolutely recommend her to family and friends. Nicole & Marcus
♥ Deb was amazing!!! She's very experienced and a pleasure to be around! She helped make sure we knew right where we were going since we're from Missouri, she helped take pictures with my mother's camera, and offered me her own headband since I wore my hair down and had no idea it would be so windy!!!! She's an absolute joy and I'd recommend her to anyone!!!! Angie & Levi
♥ Thank you, Deb, for making our day so special. I would like to share you with a dear friend who is also from Germany and who will probably have a beach wedding this fall. Her name is Rica, if she calls you.
I will pass your contact details along. Thank you again for all of your help and time. We had a perfect day and evening . Best, Kimberly & Wolfgang

♥ Hi Deb- Thank you so much for performing our vows you were awesome. We really appreciate you taking the time to drive here to do it. Thank you again. Bree & Scott
♥ Every time we talk about our ceremony day, Debb's name comes up. It rained cats, dogs and dinosaurs that day, but what was turned upside down by Mother Nature, she turned right side up with her faith and love. She was so special to us, and Rick was so endeared with her, because she cried with him; i guess i had to be the strong one :)) Debb is absolutely the best and a true blessing as a professional and as a person. I just cannot say enough good things about Debb's part in our marriage. May God continue to bless her and her family with love, unity, provision, health and peace..Hug and kiss from Rick and Ila
♥ Hiya Deb, Thank you, Thank you so very much for an awesome experience....We absolutely love the pictures!!!! We've received our marriage certificate in the mail and we just wanted to let you know that you were just wonderful throughout the entire process....Thank you so much for making our wedding such a great experience with memorable pictures to go along with it. We hope to see you again one day when we renew our vows. Deb thank you for providing that beautiful setup and for being so easy to work with throughout this entire process.

♥ Deb was wonderful! She is very professional yet has a warm and funny personality which is what my husband and I enjoyed about her. She was very flexible with our time frame and understanding about our preferences. For the type of location my husband and I were looking for, Deb was able to provide the best spot for us!
♥ Deb was so amazing and wonderful (and so flexible!!!). She made our wedding so special and she tailored it to be exactly what we wanted. We absolutely loved her!
♥ Deb was amazing and great at what she does. She was super helpful and attentive for everything i needed. I would definitely recommend her for any future brides. A+++++
♥ I cant say enough about Deb and our wedding. We had to plan our wedding in a couple of days and due to circumstances I was sure we were going have to get married at the court house and I was crushed. I found Deb online and called her and she said I can marry you today if you need to:) She was wonderful and helped me be calm and feel confident that we were going to have a wonderful wedding and we did! The ceremony was beautiful, she met us on the beach by our house and made every effort to make our day special. Our beach wedding was absolutely beautiful thanks to Deb, it turned out as wonderful as I always hoped it would be. Kimberly & Jay
♥ Debra was amazing! She arrived early and helped us get everyone in our wedding party lined up and organized, she was also very prepared with beautiful pieces to really make the alter standout. I would highly recommend Debra to anyone putting a wedding together, she stays in touch with you every minute up until the wedding and has beautiful vows that she makes into a keepsake.
Thank you so much Debra! :) Stephanie & Justin
♥ Deb was a pleasure to have perform our wedding. She was sweet, helpful, and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy.
♥ Hi Debra, We wanted to thank you again for everything you did for us. The wedding was just beautiful! The Wish was also very romantic and the food was great! Afterwards we strolled down to the Delano and had a couple of more drinks beside the pool. In the morning we saw the sunrise from our room and went swimming in the morning...2 perfect days! We also went to the Smith and Wollensky! It was great, because we had another romantic sunset... ;) Philipp & Agnes (from Switzerland)
♥ Great job, Deb. we all appreciated your warm spirit and kind words. best of luck and good wishes...happy holidays! Jim and Marianne, Key Biscayne

♥ Madison was a blessing to work with from day 1! Always responded to my emails quickly and answered my questions thoroughly! If she couldn't provide me with what I was looking for she knew exactly where to get what I wanted or needed and took care of it for me. Never sending me on a search for anything myself.

♥ Ils sont très disponibles, ils répondent rapidement et parlent français c'est top ! Nous avons téléphoné à la dame qui doit nous marier elle est géniale ! On a hâte d'être le jour j :-) Laure
♥ STRESS FREE, STRESS FREE is all that I can say. So glad we choose beachweddingofmiami. My Husband and I received such wonderful service that we plan to have our vows renewed by Deb the wedding officiant. The setup and scenery was more than we expected. The entire process from photography (which was included by the way) to the ceremony was just fantastic. We felt like a great friend of many years put everything together because of the ease and outcome of our wedding. We even received great tips on hotel stays and a place to purchase our wedding cake since we're from out of town. We pre-registered for our marriage application from beachweddingofmiami.com which made things super easy. All I can say is if you want a wonderful experience that's classy, fun, and so unique this is it....FYI no one can compete with the price and value of what you'll receive. We would like to thank you again for being so flexible and easy to work with. We were very satisfied. :-)
♥ PERFECT! Debbie was professional, patient & made our day Fun & memorable! D Amedeo
♥ Debra is the most wonderful person to have around. She performed our wedding ceremony and it was so romantic and beautiful. She really made that day the most special day in our lives. Debra, we love you!
Tanja & Davis Rojas
♥ Deb was the best wedding officiant! She made us feel so comfortable so that we could focus on the moment, and each other. She answered emails within minutes and goes the extra mile for the couple! She has been doing this for many years and her expertise shows. I would recommend her to anyone, from a couple doing an intimate ceremony to the most lavish of weddings. She will personalize your vows and make your wedding day dreams a reality!
♥ My now wife and I were extremely satisfied with both the value and professionalism we received with Deb. For us, it was a bit of a risk to fly all the way from Oregon to Florida and hope that this person we had never met would be where we had planned and merry us the way we had discussed. Everything worked exactly as such. Deb made this entire experience awesome. "Barefoot to Elegant" made there end of the arrangement something we could count on all the way to the end. What a relief. She not only did a wonderful job with the ceramony, but also took some excellent pictures afterwords. My wife and I were quite pleased with the value and manner in which the entire day was went down. Good luck to Deb and "Barefoot to Elegant Beach Weddings of Miami." : ) William
♥ We called Deb just 7 days before our 100 person ceremony because our original officiant was unable to attend. She answered right away and quickly calmed our anxiety about making such a big change so late in the game. Within a few hours she sent us an entirely customized ceremony script. In just half a day she was already more organized and had us feeling better than did our original officiant with whom we'd been working with for weeks. She showed up to both the rehearsal and the ceremony 30 minutes early and even took some pictures for us. Since it was a beach wedding in May, she also brought hundreds of little water bottles out to the ceremony site for us and put them in a nice bucket with ice. Don't waste your time shopping for ceremony officiants. Deb is the one you want...Thanks Deb!!!! Ryan and Eden
