Frequently Asked Questions

How has COVID -19 affected your process?

As you can imagine, the wedding industry has been hard-hit by state guidelines designed to protect us from spreading coronavirus. As things continue to shift and change, I vow to be as flexible with couples as I possibly can, scheduling consultations—and even weddings—on Zoom or FaceTime. Just about everything can be done virtually these days. I am happy to adhere to any social distancing guidelines set by my couples. Luckily, I have always been a careful person, so my hand-washing game is strong. ;)

How does this all work? 

Once you contact me and we agree on a wedding package, we will then set up a time to talk in person or over the phone to begin the process. From there, we will set up meetings or online check-ins (with convenient times, locations, and dates) to work on the ceremony. We will meet/talk as many times as you need or are comfortable with. After all, it’s your special day and I want to make sure everything happens exactly as you picture it. We will make our ceremony selections, you may opt to write your own vows, and I will review the requirements for a marriage license with you. I will officiate your wedding ceremony and follow up with instructions for your changing marital status.   

 

What made you want to officiate weddings?

Years ago, my niece and my (now) nephew asked me to officiate their wedding. I of course said, “YES!” and felt incredibly honored. I have always had a passion for weddings ever since I was young and helping this particular couple create their ceremony and officiate it solidified that passion. As my mother once told me when I was a little girl, "Work in a bridal shop or with brides. Surrounding yourself with such new and exciting love will make it one of the happiest jobs you can hold.” 

 

Will you officiate marriage for all religions, ethnicities,  cultures, and  genders?

YES. Absolutely. It would be my honor to marry you.

 

Will you officiate marriage in a strictly non-religious ceremony?

YES. Absolutely. It would be my honor to marry you.

 

What is your favorite moment in any wedding ceremony?

My favorite moment is when I say: “It’s time now. Are you ready?” I always pause here.  I love looking at the couples' faces as they are about to become married. That moment is priceless

 

What do you do in your spare time?

I love spending time with my husband, who I met twelve years ago. He is funny, kind, and the love of my life. We have blended a family filled with five fabulous children, three wonderful daughter-in-laws, an incredible son-in-law, and eight amazing grandchildren. Date nights are something I always look forward to as I love sharing a glass of wine and good food with my husband and close friends and family.
