Just as your love is like no other, your marriage will be like no other. We talk about marriage as if it means the same for everyone. However, the elements that make for a strong marital foundation come down to the shared vision and values that are unique to each couple. When working with Brides & Grooms on their ceremony, I always ask for them to create their very own "Foundation of Marriage Statement."
Here are the questions I provide for each couple to help them for design their statement:

With nearly a decade and a half of officiating I've had the delight and distinct honor of standing at nearly 200 altars. More than anything else this work has taught me that each marriage is as unique as the two people who make up the couple. In the ceremonies I create and officiate, I love highlighting the one-of-a-kind love story of each couple. I write each ceremony from scratch honoring the couple's beliefs, designing ceremony elements that will hold meaning for the couple, and sharing with their loved ones what marriage means to them. I love making guests feel like a part of this important moment helping them feel renewed in their own lives and relationships, and leaving them saying, "Why isn't every wedding like this?"
