Message In A Bottle Weddings And Vows Has New Location
“Happily ever after starts here,” is the tagline of Message in a Bottle Weddings and Vows. “Here” used to be on Marion Avenue in Punta Gorda, but the company known for it’s “secret” chapel can now be found at,
3380 Tamiami Trail, Suite A2, Port Charlotte. Florida 33952
Krystal Marie Castillo, who is a licensed wedding officiant and minister, owns Message In A Bottle with her two young daughters, Alivia and Alyssa Castillo, who also work as wedding planners and wedding officiants.
Although staff members can travel to any venue, the business provides a location where couples could get married (or renew their wedding vows) in a private, intimate and more romantic setting than a courthouse. The chapel — with its flower-filled wedding arch, candles with a fireplace background, elegant chandelier and decorated rustic benches — seats up to 20 guests.
Message in a Bottle strives to create magical but affordable weddings.
It offers several ceremony package types, including traditional, contemporary, civil, Short and Sweet, Second Time Around, All in the Family, bilingual (Spanish/English), I Do’s For Two (elopement) and more. Marriages can be scheduled for any time around the clock.
