Weddings on the Beach in South Texas Made Easy

Getting Started

Two of our clients enjoy the moment of peace following their beach wedding ceremony at Port Aransas, Texas. Shot on location.

We will help you every step of the way…

As you explore our website, you’ll get great information about beach weddings and creative ideas that will lead to wedding memories that will last a lifetime.  Then, when you’re ready, email us at, call us at 361-857-8068 or stop by our offices in Uptown Corpus Christi and we will provide even more great Getting Started information and walk you through all the steps, simplifying and clarifying the process each step of the way.  Of course, if you have a pressing question, you are also welcome to call us, at 361-857-8068. However, please know that on weekends we’re busy helping other couples with their ceremonies and also know that we will be conducting the majority of the planning through emailing. That way, you get everything in writing and so do we.  Over the years, we’ve found it to be a highly effective and efficient way to make sure that we get every detail of your wedding right.


When you’re ready to reserve your day, you can mail a deposit or call us and we can take a credit card over the phone and your deposit of 50% down will apply towards your total package price. As soon as you have reserved with us, we’ll send information packets about beach house and condo rentals, locations, marriage licenses, etc.


The mailing address is listed here for your convenience, as well:

Port A Weddings by Padre Ryan

1301 Antelope Street

Corpus Christi, Texas 78401


Once you’ve sent the deposit of 50% down, we’ll send a confirmation and continue to work with you to finalize all of the aspects of the wedding including the choice of the wedding vows, music, videography, photography and much more. Our specialty is in helping out-of-town couples have a simple, beautiful and affordable beach wedding ceremony without the added stress of making trips to the Corpus Christi, Port Aransas and Rockport area ahead of time. It’s a way of keeping costs down for our couples.  But we appreciate that some people prefer to visit the island and the Coastal Bend for themselves.  To schedule a meeting with us on on the beach, please call us at least two weeks in advance, or you may stop by our office anytime. But,  first things first: to Get Started…Request info Here!
