Counseling for Newlyweds and "Nearlyweds" Personal Consultation and Planning
Counseling is an indispensable part of my wedding services. My goal is to strengthen your relationship so that you see each other in ways that will help your marriage endure the trials of life.

I am trained in the use of Prepare/Enrich, a counseling program based on a customized online assessment tool that identifies a couple's strength and growth areas.

Prepare/Enrich helps couples to:

  • Explore factors that lead to relationship longevity
  • Strengthen their communication skills
  • Identify areas of stress and resolve conflicts
  • Comfortably discuss financial issues
  • Establish personal, couple, and family goals
  • Understand and appreciate personality differences

Having performed many hundreds of wedding ceremonies over the past 20 years, each one is unique and memorable. I especially enjoy personalizing each couple's ceremony to fit their individual tastes, to express their wedding ideas, and to celebrate the story of their relationship. This can include one or more of the following:
  • Unity Sand Ceremony
  • Wine Blending Ceremony
  • Holy Communion for bride and groom
  • Unity Candle Ceremony
  • Veil, Lasso and Coin Ceremony

My services include the following:
Initial Appointment - This first meeting is complimentary. This is a time for us to get acquainted and discuss your ideas for your wedding ceremony. Our discussion helps me to personalize your wedding ceremony.

Rehearsal - I feel it is important to meet the wedding party before the wedding date, and to go over the elements of the wedding ceremony to come.

Wedding Day - On your wedding day, my services include the following:

  • Check in with the Wedding Coordinator
  • Let you and your fiancée know I have arrived
  • Contact the photographer about order of your ceremony for photos
  • Coordinate with the DJ
  • Make sure all items are set up for the ceremony i.e. wine blending etc.
  • Be available, if desired, to give the meal blessing at the reception
