Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Florida wedding license requirements, fees & times?

A county court judge or clerk of the circuit court issues Florida marriage licenses. To obtain a marriage license you will need:

  • Identification: a picture ID such as a driver’s license, state ID card, or a valid passport
  • Your Social Security numbers. You will not need your Social Security Card.

The fee is $93.50. This fee can be reduced by up to $32.50 if you complete a licensed Florida pre-marital course.

The marriage license is valid for 60 days. A blood test is not required for the issuance of a license.

There is a three-day waiting period after the issuance of the license before you can get married. However, if you have completed the Florida pre-marital course, the waiting period is waived. In addition, if you are not a Florida resident, the waiting period does not apply.

The Chapel’s Senior Minister is available to assist the visiting officiant as required.

Can my flower girl release petals/rice/etc.?

For environmental reasons we do not allow the release of petals, rice or other material.

What is the Unity Sand Ceremony? Who provides the containers and sands?

The sand ceremony in its simplest form involves the blending of two different colored sands into a common container.  The symbolism of two individuals blending into an inseparable couple is a very powerful concept that has universal appeal.  The layers of sand represent the unique personality of each individual, but the layers at the edge are blended and can never be separated.

The use of the sand ceremony for outdoor weddings has become very popular, as breezes will not interrupt the ceremony.

The bride and groom must furnish their own unity sand ceremony supplies, as there are numerous ways to personalize the ceremony.  The supplies are readily available due to the growing popularity of the ceremony.

What is the Unity Candle Ceremony?

The Unity Candle Ceremony involves the use of two tapered candles by the bride and groom, to light a larger pillar candle.  The act of lighting the unity candle symbolizes the joining of two individuals as one.  It is also used to symbolize the joining of two families.  The ceremony adds a personal and sentimental touch to the overall wedding ceremony.

Due to the numerous choices for the candles and the holders, the Chapel requires that the bride and groom provide their unity candle supplies.

Do you offer a military discount?

Yes. The Chapel offers a 15% discount on the package prices to active military personnel.

Can we have a reception in the Garden?

Receptions in the Garden must be scheduled within the 2 ½ hour window that is allowed for the wedding. The wedding party is responsible for hiring a caterer and renting tables as desired. The Wedding Coordinator can assist in recommending local caterers and rental companies.

May alcohol be served at a chapel reception?

If alcohol beverages are to be served at a reception then one of the following requirements must be met: 1.)  A professional caterer must provide a Certificate of Liability Insurance with the Chapel named as an additional insured, or 2.) The wedding couple must provide, based on their homeowners policy, a Certificate of Liability Insurance naming the Chapel as an additional insured, or 3.) The wedding couple can purchase a Host Liquor Liability event policy with the Chapel named as an additional insured and present such policy to the Wedding Coordinator.  The liability coverage in each of the three instances above must cover the Chapel for a minimum of $1,000,000.00.

What is the Chapel's cancellation policy?

If a wedding date is cancelled 90 days or more, prior to the scheduled date, 50% of the initial required deposit will be retained. Cancellations less than 90 days from the scheduled date will not receive a refund of the initial required deposit.
