Our History

Pastor Skip Corbett and his wife Elaine founded A Beach Wedding Minister to provide for the ministrial needs of those who are not affiliated with a home church or are visiting from out of the area needing the services of qualified clergy. We love and connect with every couple and we consider every wedding that we do is the most important wedding that we will ever officiate. Pastor Skip was ordained in 2003 by The Door of Hope in Greensboro, NC. He is truly passionate about performing weddings and his love for people and heart for service are evident. He has been called back on many occasions to perform baptisms and christenings for babies born of the couples he marries and often performs vow renewals and other milestone anniversary celebrations.

Elaine attended Southeastern Baptist Seminary and graduated with a certificate in Women's Studies. She has been the backbone of the ministry planning for the efficient efforts of our whole team and working with our couples to organize for their wedding.

Pastor Jimmy Rogers

Pastor Jimmy Rogers joined the team in 2009 and currently serves as Minister of Music at Hampstead Baptist Church in Hampstead, NC. His meticulous attention to detail and expertise in sound, music and drama make Jimmy a natural and a favorite of our brides. He also possesses an amazing "get it done" attitude and will not stop until he has done his very best to ensure each couple the day of their dreams. (By the way he can preach AND sing at your wedding)
