Fort Walton Beach, Florida…

Looking for an Officiant for your Fort Walton Beach area wedding? Fort Walton Beach is situated west of Destin, Florida and is part of the beautiful Emerald Coast area.

Fort Walton Beach, Florida beach weddings with Pastor Steve Durkac officiating for small families or simple elopements and vow renewals.

The Emerald Coast beaches are beautiful and I do enjoy making the extra drive to that area, as my schedule allows me the time to go to the Fort Walton Beach or Destin areas to officiate.
