Perfect

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes, Susan was our officiant and did a beautiful job. I was definitely ok with her performing the wedding because I felt really close to her already.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We did the sand dollar blessing and it was a lot of fun!

Boca Grande Island Wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Pastor Steve did a great job at our ceremony. He called the week prior to the wedding and talked to us at length. He did an amazing job and we were very lucky to have him preside over our ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

We were really pleased with the verses Pastor Steve chose and all of our guests thought the unity sand was great.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We used our own colors and chose a less popular beach for the ceremony, the Boca Grande Island Lighthouse Beach, which we would totally reccomend for a wedding. At 4:30 the beach was virtually empty and the sunset during our photography session!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

No one had ever been to a beach wedding before and LOVED the set up of the arch and the other decorations (starfish, etc) We also were heavily complimented on the cala lillies!

ABSOLUTEY PERFECT!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes, the pastor was very friendly and professional. Just from a phone conversation I was very confident that he would do a great job, And he did an awesome job!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He said kind words about the historic site of our marriage. He was very natural and knew just what to say.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

I was told that i could be creative with my ceremony and vows. Platinum Florida Wedding Company had some wonderful suggestions. I chose a very basic traditional & religious ceremony and it was very perfect.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

I only used an officiant and photography from this company, and i was absolutely blown away. Amazing value!! I wish i would have planned an entire wedding package with Platinum.

The Coy Wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Susan was awesome! She made us feel comfortable from the beginning. I honestly felt like I had known her for forever.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She was happy to go at our pace. We wanted something fast but nice and she did deliver.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We had a very fast and simple wedding but Susan still made it feel like a wedding. Everything was set up so beautifully. We married at sunset. So the pictures were beautiful. Exactly what I wanted.
We live in Ohio, So we thought It was going to be hard to plan the wedding in Florida being so far away but Susan took care of everything. We told her what we liked and what we wanted and she gave us exactly that. Having not ever been there to Sanibel Island she gave some suggestions and everything turned out great. She definitely made our planning so simple.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We only had 2 people at our wedding. We all enjoyed how personable the wedding was and such a beautiful spot on the beach while the sun set. It's what every girl dreams of.
Thanks Susan.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Susan V. was a delight from the first time we spoke over the phone. We met w/ her once before the wedding to discuss the plans. She was so sweet and helpful

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

We knew exactly what to expect; she told us that we would keep eye contact and not "get lost."

Sunset Wedding on Bowman Beach

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

After spending many weeks poring over the profiles of wedding companies serving the Florida gulf coast area, we decided on Florida Platinum weddings. Susan Voelkel has the warmth and creativity that make her the ideal wedding planner. She had many wonderful suggestions and creative ideas and with her guidance, our sunset beach wedding on Sanibel Island was perfect.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Susan helped us in choosing and personalizing our wedding vows. This was our second wedding and we wanted to include our children in the ceremony, Susan wrote a beautiful passage for the sand unity ceremony that made the children feel a part of the wedding and it was truly a wonderful way to mark the beginning of our new family.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Our wedding location at Bowman Beach was the perfect backdrop for our sunset beach wedding. We personalized it with a video. The DVD was professionally filmed and edited and is a wonderful keepsake of the entire ceremony.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our wedding party consisted of my husband and me and our children. We all felt that the beauty and intimacy of this ceremony was made possible by Susan and her team and we are so happy that we chose her to share in our special day.

Sunset 10 Yr. Vow Renewal- Lighthouse Beach

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Pastor Steve was so awesome! Days before our ceremony he spoke with my husband and I, on different occaisions, and really got to know us. I highly recommend him if you want a "spiritual" service. He's AWESOME at including the beach, ocean, waves, etc. into the spiritual aspect of a ceremony!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He had a great scripture he picked for us to add to the ceremony.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We wrote our own vows, exchanged sand dollars, and added some humor into our ceremony. To all of you thinking about a beach ceremony w/ this company: LISTEN TO SUSAN!!! She knows the in's & out's of everything in Ft. Myers and surrounding areas! Whatever she suggests. . DO IT! You won't regret it;-)

Perfect Day!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Susan was great. Since we live in Michigan, we didn't meet her until the day of our ceremony. She answered all questions by phone and email. We chose the pink passion beach package. It was just what we wanted at a reasonable price. I felt comfortable that everything would turn out great and it did.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We married on the beach in front of the hotel we stayed at. Very convenient. Susan sent many sample vows for our review. We combined parts from several to make our own vows.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

The set up was very nice. It was a small beach ceremony at sunset. Everyone who's seen the pictures thought it was beautiful.

Care Free Day

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Both my fiance and I felt comfortable dealing with Susan and her team. We actually didn't meet Susan until the day we got married but it was like we had been friends for years. We stayed in contact with one another via phone and email on a regular basis so there were no surprises on our wedding day.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Nothing that I can remember. Susan followed the outline that we created to the tee.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We wrote our own vows and added them in as part of the ceremony along with vows to my step-son and including our children in the sand ceremony. We have a beautiful keepsake as a result.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

The vows I wrote for my step-son that my Husband knew nothing about. It was truly a memory in the making.

Go Platinum!!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Susan couldn't have been better for me, it was like she was my best friend. Even if I couldn't quite spit it out she read my mind gave me every detail down to the perfect "T". She was a calming factor for me since I was planning my Florida wedding all the way from Canada. Susan guided me through amazing websites helping me chose our wedding location on Sanibel Island. I was never nervous knowing Susan was at the wheel.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Susan knew that since this was a 2nd wedding for both of us, she incorporated our children into the ceremony. It made them feel part of the day, and it made the day that much more memorable.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We personalized our ceremony by only including our children, no other family members.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

The only guests we had were about 10-12 dolphins playing nearby, so my favorite comment would be "squeek, whistle, splash"

Perfect Wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Steve made us feel as though he had known us forever. He called us prior to the wedding date so we were able to get to know him as well as his getting to know us and what our wishes were.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Prior to the date of the wedding, Susan made sure that everything was in order. I had absolutely no pressures placed on me and I was able to relax and enjoy the days prior to the wedding as well as the perfect wedding day. The photographer was arranged and oh, how perfect the pictures are.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Since my husband had always given me pink roses, we added the rose ceremony. Thanks for making our special time so perfect.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Absolutely. Susan was extremely personable, friendly and professional.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Susan suggested that we add a personal touch to the ceremony. I was a bit intimidated, but after she suggested different scenarios, I was much more at ease. Then the writing came much easier and worked out beautifully.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our guests were just happy that after 8 years, we finally made it official.

Florida vs Ohio...Yeah Right!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

So I'm coming to Fl to get married and needed a wedding planner. I called Susan. Then called 2 other people. Then called Susan back. After talking with 2 other companies I knew Susan was the one. The other two had no personality and low energy. I connected with Susan immediately, loved her enthusiasm. She listened to what I wanted and gave me options and we went from there.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Her communication was excellent. No waiting periods for a response, no unexpected problems. She found out how crazy I am (all brides are) and she catered to my needs. I absolutely love Susan. If I lived in Florida she would be my new best friend:)

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We made our own vows, we wanted a gazebo and she orchestrated everything. And most importantly I trusted her.

Wonderful Wedding!!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Susan is wonderful! I have no complain about her. She is very nice, patient to answer all our questions by phone and email, very accommodating to modify the contract based on our request. We chose the platinum wedding package. The price is very reasonable. The setting was nice. After the wedding, for some reason we only received the selected photos. And we want all the photos. Susan was very helpful to contact the photographer and sent us another CD with more photos.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We chose our hotel beach as our ceremony location. We customized our vows.

Tehani & Danny's Wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Susan was awesome!! I was a basket case about everything & she knew it. She helped me with everything and anything I needed & then some! She went way beyond her contract to make me feel calm & comfortable about it all. She could read my mind & finish my sentences! I told everyone she made my day perfect!!!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

The decor was beautiful but it was her presentation at the ceremony that made it amazing. She knew I was nervous & kept making eye contact with me. The way she spoke during the ceremony will such feeling... it really made it all feel that much more special.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

She did it all! She sent me numerous examples of vows to choose from because I couldn't find anything I liked & she knew I was going nuts. I was so busy with home & work that she had to stay on top of things with me & she did!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone thought the wedding was beautiful!! They kept saying they have never been to a wedding more beautiful than ours & that is thanks to Susan! The decor was gorgeous but Susan made the day. She made sure everything went smoothly from start to finish! I don't know what I would have done without her!!!!

The Webb Wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Susan answered all of our questions and always kept in touch via phone and email before the wedding day. She always responded to email and phone calls quickly- unlike some other wedding companies!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Susan knew we were driving down from GA on Saturday to be married on Monday so she took care of everything. She suggested the perfect beach for the wedding and the perfect hotel for the honeymoon! Plus, she wanted to learn about us and see pictures of us so she could get a sense of who we were before the wedding.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We didn't have to provide anything... everything was taken care of for us! All we had to do was show up!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our family loved it all! They were so surprised about how nice the decorations were and how friendly Susan and the photographer were. My mother liked our beach wedding better than her own! She said Susan was better than the person who preformed her ceremony!
