About the Beachpeople

~ Professionally Licensed & Insured ~

Every year, we see about 200 epic sunrises and sunsets with excited couples who are glowing with Love, dressed in their best (or nice n’ comfy), sharing unique moments and promises of unconditional love and happiness with each other. And we get to be a part of that magic! And take the photos too!  It’s an amazing occupation…

We bring Real Romance to tying the knot on the beach (or “tighten the knot” for vows renewal)

This is the beachpeople way…living your life on the shore. We are THE long-time specialists at amazing ceremonies and photos…imagine a nice, sunny, fresh, outdoor beach wedding. You two are wearing something soft and beach-y with your feet in the sand. See and feel yourself standing on the shore with waves crashing, warm breezes, sunlight, billowing sea grass and seagulls calling. You are surrounded by your loved ones on this magical shore, holding hands. And you’re about to become heart-joined with the love of your life. This amazing moment, your wedding, becomes about only YOU. That is our mission!

And, we are more than Ministers and a Photographer…

Mr. and Mrs. Sears (David and Margo) are romantics, soulmates, and Twin Flames to each other. Also they are certified life coaches, published authors, a former English professor, a flutist, Reiki Master Teachers, meditation teachers, a motorcyclist, actual leaders of a multi-faith church, foodies, and animal lovers. The Sears are also happily co-owned by their spoiled and handsome rescue cat, Loki Bones. 😉

And we bring these happy energies to every ceremony!

“Service and generosity to others is our passion and joy. We are all about respecting your wishes, your privacy, your choices for yourselves and your wedding day. IF you are happy, we are too. This is our full time jobs… we WANT you to be very pleased!” David says.

“Moreover, we are not ‘mail-order’ ministers–we are REAL pastors of a real church based in Oak Island and Greensboro NC called L.E.W.A. with over 200 clergy under us, ordained as non-denominational, in person, and we honor all Paths and belief systems including non-religious. And we warmly honor same-sex, multi-racial, and multi-faith couples, biker couples, as well as divorced folks, live-togethers, expecting parents, last-minute weddings, and vow renewals. All are warmly welcome here!” Margo says. And…

Beaches are a special wilderness …

… living focal points for our spiritual selves that defies religious labels. The ocean and shore thwart human controls and require us to respect that they are wild places, always existing in a state of grace between the known and the mysterious. We feel that special “larger than ourselves” thing at the beach, and we see refreshment and renewal every time a wave washes over a footprint or a sand castle. It is a unique place of amazing beauty and humbling power. What a perfect place to start a new journey in your life with your soulmate!

We are the experts at doing this.
