Free Military Elopement
On Monday, February 8, 2016 in celebration of the City of Oceanside’s Valentine’s Week, Vows From The Heart teamed up with The City of Oceanside and Visit Oceanside to present Military Mondays: Special Edition at the beautiful Oceanside Marina Suites south peninsula. Rather than a simple seaside elopement, we presented 6 Mini-Weddings overlooking the Oceanside Marina jetty which included chairs for family and friends, a beautiful flowered altar, music and even a small cake. In addition to all this, couples were given a free honeymoon night at a local hotel. The event was such a success, it even made the front page “above the fold” of the San Diego Union Tribune, what an honor. (Read Here). We want to thank everyone that helped make this all happen: Oceanside Marina Suites ~ City of Oceanside ~ Holiday Inn Oceanside Marina ~ Anar Party Rentals ~ Flowers by Azalea – Floral Boutique ~ Petite Madeline Bakery/Patisserie ~ DJ Wreckrd ~ Saradpon Photography ~ Lavish Lark Weddings ~ Melissa McClure Photography ~ RHS Photo San Diego Wedding Photographer.
Welcome and Thank You for your service to our Country!
Military Mondays™ is a philanthropic outreach of Rev. Christopher Tuttle and Chaplain Mary Cyr, a Husband and Wife Chaplain team from Vows From The Heart Ministries and Elope to San Diego™. They present this FREE service as an alternative to the “Courthouse” wedding for all Active Military members regardless of branch of service, time in the military or rank. The dictionary defines philanthropic as; showing concern for humanity by performing charitable actions.
Rev. Christopher and Chaplain Mary of Vows From The Heart Ministries have taken great pride over the years offering military discounts for wedding and elopement service ceremony services and to take this a step further, gives one day a week to those active Military members wishing for a more romantic setting and with a more personal celebration, rather than the County Clerks Office and with a much prettier view. As Chaplains, they not only perform civil type ceremonies without judgement or personal agenda, they can also offer Spiritual or Non-Denominational Christian ceremonies that the County Clerk can’t.
No games, No ticks, No hidden fees or charges… Just a simple way to say Thank You for your service!
Serving those that serve us!™
