Dear Nancy, thank you for being a part of our special day. Having you officiate our vow renewal means so much to us as you were the one who married us 10 years ago. Having you today makes the day even better! We consider you a friend and a business associate. We wish you and your husband a happy holiday season. Donna & Darrell, 2002-2012


, thank you so much for being our officiant at Ca d'Zan. We could not have asked for a better day weather wise. Everything went perfectly. Our photographer was able to record the whole ceremony. It was beautiful. It must have been meant to be that your dress matched the bridesmaids' dresses. It was great! Thanks again. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Tara & Jeffrey, 10/12
Nancy, I wanted to thank you once again for all of the great help you provided. Terry and I were very touched by your ceremony. Having heard many Pastors present wedding ceremonies over the years, yours was by far the most innovative and unique. You could obviously see the tears of joy from Terry. You and your husband were the topic of our discussion during dinner that evening. I wish you and your husband the best, as Terry and I go on a journey that should have started 40 years ago. God and time will bless the two of us. Sincerely, Ray, 9/12

Hi Nancy, I just wanted to say a big 'Thank You' for you officiating at our vow renewal last night. Everything was absolutely perfect. The setting on Longboat Key was just picture postcard. You were great, it was just like having an old friend perform our ceremony for us. Once again, thank you for making our special day fabulous. Many, many thanks and best wishes for your own anniversary next month. Paula & John, 9/12

Missing the beach, but we are so happy! Our families are thrilled. Thanks again!Gary and Sandi, 8/12

Dear Nancy, thank you so much for the gift of a vow renewal ceremony at Longboat Key Club on our recent visit to the Sarasota area.

Sarah (wife of Jeff), 7/12

Nancy, as I told you the night of the ceremony, it was perfect. Your words rang true and the smile on my face the entire time was due in part to your wonderful ceremony. Thank you again for your efforts, concern, and care to make a special night even more so. Jeff (husband of Sarah), 7/12

, we can't thank you enough for making our wedding such a special and personal event. We told you we wanted a traditional exchange of vows without all the fanfare. We told you we decided to save our money in order to celebrate our life together and not overspend on the wedding. You listened and offered up the perfect solution for us. Your service was both solemn and joyful. The two of us saying 'I do' barefoot on sunset-washed



was romantic and was

Nancy from Barefoot Weddings made my Siesta Key beach wedding flow smoothly, better then I could have imagined. Her services at our wedding were calming, comforting, and personally felt. I did not feel as if I was just another bride ' she did make it as if it was "our day." The ceremony was a dream come true, I would love to do the ceremony over and over again. It was beyond our expectations. Thank you, Nancy. Lynnae & Ronald, 7/10

Nancy Taussig performed a memorable and heart-warming ceremony that was unforgettable.

I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for an officiant in the Sarasota area! Thanks again! Heather & John, 1/10

Hi, Nancy! We just returned home and wanted to thank you once again for performing our Lido Key wedding ceremony on Labor Day. We cannot begin to express how thrilled we are with how it went.

There was so much to take in at the time that we wanted to make sure that you knew how happy we were. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Fran & Michael, 9/09

Nancy, we wanted to thank you once again for the fabulous ceremony that you performed for us on Anna Maria Island. It was perfect in every way. All of our guests loved your words, the joining of the sand, and the overall genuine heartfelt emotions. There wasn't a dry eye in the place! In fact, friends and family who were unable to make the journey have been sincerely moved as they read through our ceremony booklet. Both men and women have been teary! Please know that we have already posted a recommendation on the website for you and will continue to encourage all of our friends and family to use your services in the future. Thank you again for all of your time, including looking for Jen's hairclip in the sand. :) Our sincerest thanks, Jen & James, 6/09

Hi, Nancy, we are getting settled into life as a married couple in New York City and wanted to send you a note to say thanks for everything. We were a bit nervous asking someone online, who we had never met before, to marry us, but we both agree, after having gone through it, there is no one else we would have asked to perform the ceremony on Casey Key. You made things so easy for us and we thank you so much. The ceremony was beautiful and definitely the perfect style for us and our guests. Everyone said they loved the sand ceremony and we did, too. It's such a great memento and every time we look at the bottle of sand on our shelf, we can't help but smile. Thank you for having such a positive influence on the best day of our life! Sincerely, Lauren and Jeff, 5/09

Nancy, once again, we want to thank you for performing a beautiful ceremony for the four of us! It was quite a day for all of us & we couldn't have done it without you!

We appreciate all the work you did & we especially appreciate meeting will never be forgotten! (We are still talking about how much we liked you!)

Nancy, we thank you so much for being such a big part of our very special day on Siesta Key! Thank you so much for making our glorious day so special. The weather was beautiful, the company was great, and we couldn't have done it without you! We are sticking to your words and we 'spoil each other' every day. And thank you for all the delicious grapefruit (from your backyard)' it was a lovely and refreshing treat the next day for a newly married couple from Canada. Lots of love, Natalie & Mark, 4/09

It was sad leaving Florida where we had such a wonderful week, but at the same time we will always have our wonderful memories of our perfect, intimate wedding ceremony on Lido Key.

You are so good at what you do. With gratitude, Valerie & Dennis, 2/09

Nancy, we just wanted to thank you for making our day so special. Planning a wedding from a few hundred miles away is difficult, but you made the officiate part of that so easy.

We fell in love all over again every single night watching the sunsets. Thanks again, April & Angus, 5/5/08

Hi, Nancy! Just a quick note to say Thank You! We really loved working with you and you were exactly what we were looking for in our officiant. Your ideas for the girls, your ideas for the ceremony, your ideas for the location, were all spot on and much appreciated. Of all the people we worked with to pull off our wedding day in Bradenton Beach, you were the best. We believe we were meant to meet you and glad we did. Your life in common with the Mother of the Groom (your Wisconsin roots and such) was so neat for our family. We are so glad you stayed to have dinner with us, for we feel you were the main reason things went so well on our day. To anyone who is looking for the right officiant for their beach wedding ceremony, look no more, Nancy is quite simply the best! Thanks Again! Kelly & Patrick, 3/17/08
