About Weddings On A Whim
Where Happily Ever Afters Began
As a means to assist couples seeking simple beach weddings along the Gulf Coast of Florida, Founder Gayle Liteheart started Weddings On a Whim in 2001.
When she learned the State of Florida requires no wait period (for destination couples from outside of Florida), no blood test & no witnesses to get married in Florida, Gayle said “Couples could get married ‘on a whim.'” That’s when the company name came to life.

Co-Founder / Officiant Joe
Teaming with husband of over 30 years Joe, the Liteheart’s began the company by providing wedding Officiant, photography & wedding concierge services for locals and eloping couples. As their customer base & local partnerships grew, they expanded to provide original wedding decorations and convenient dinner cruise receptions.
Representing three dinner cruises provides Weddings On a Whim’s couples with easy & affordable reception options. Partnerships w/local hotels assists couples to communicate with personal contacts – in order to find the best pricing & service available to them.
Enjoying The Journey
Having conducted thousands of ceremonies, the celebrants & other Whim Team members know and love the beaches of Tampa Bay. Wedding Concierge Services provide all the details & guidance any couple could need to plan a wedding on the central Gulf Coast of Florida. These include hotels, florists, hair salons, cake companies, transportation, dinner cruises, restaurants & other reception venue possibilities.
Weddings on a Whim is dedicated to making all inclusive wedding packages affordable & the process of booking a wedding simple. Their most popular All Inclusive Package combination offers a beach wedding in combination with a dining yacht reception. After reviewing our pricing, details & reviews, couples often tell us they were glad they did.
Founder Gayle & The Whim Team
Co-founders Gayle & Joe Liteheart recruit romantically inclined individuals who lend their creative talents to design & build unique one of a kind wedding settings. For those seeking Officiant only services, they crafted original wedding ceremonies – to reflect the personalities & style of each couple.
Affectionately known as “The Whim Team,” members provide professional Officiant, photography, production & other related wedding provider services in central Florida for groups of 2 to 200. Nearly every photograph & all the artwork on our site have been conceived, created & produced by our family of wedding artists – who believe in love, laughter & marriage. We would like to especially thank photographer Jerry Lukas & Designer Pocho for lending their talents & their hearts to this project.
“Our vision is to acknowledge, embrace & encourage relationships that support, strengthen and lift one another and our world.”
