PRE-MARRIAGE AND MARRIAGE COACHING PROGRAM
We use the Prepare-Enrich Marriage Program and assessment as our primary tool for our pre-marriage and marriage coaching and counseling work together. It is the most widely used marriage coaching tool in the United States. The program has been experienced by more than 3 million couples. We also utilize other tools and offer solutions to help you with understanding and appreciating each other's love language, partner style and habits, communication and conflict resolution skills, and finance.

DESIGN YOUR SPECIAL DAY
Happiness, excitement and love are three wonderful feelings I’ve heard while talking to couples about their upcoming ceremony and marriage. Personalize, customize and excellence are key words that I use while in the same conversation. I have found that, in our high-tech world, couples want their wedding day to be filled with the emotional connections that exemplify their relationship.
WHERE TO BEGIN
Let's begin with a FREE, NO OBLIGATION MEETING, which typically lasts an hour. I believe that the rapport between the officiant, bride, and groom is key to their connection and the ultimate success of the wedding ceremony. This is not something that can be determined by a succession of emails and phone calls, but in person (when possible), or via Zoom/Skype.
This is why I look forward to meeting each couple so the couple and I can determine if we are a good fit for their ceremony. Those who have known me for many years and those who have recently experienced my style have said that I am thorough, calming, and present with dignity and professionalism and with a relaxed flexible style.
What I Provide
During our meeting, we will confirm the basics of your ceremony and rehearsal, along with the venue dynamics and its importance to your ceremony. We will discuss amongst other things, the inclusion of sacred or non-sacred elements, use of rituals such as the unity candle, sand ceremony, love notes and wine in a box, tying the knot, bride and groom's personal vows, or other additions that can customize your ceremony. Lastly, we will walk through a typical ceremony to gain your perspective and emotional connection for your special day.
After the ceremony, I will sign and mail your license for filing with the circuit court.
PACKAGES AND FEES
We offer some packages as well as à la carte services. There's something here for everyone! A non-refundable, partial payment of $250 is required to hold the date on my calendar. The remaining balance can be paid closer to the ceremony date.
À La Carte Wedding Fees
A package covers the basics and provides a cost-effective way to include pre-marriage or marriage coaching. Coaching can be vital for the preparation of a long-term, successful, and thriving marriage. Statistics reveal that the first year following a marriage is the most challenging, even for those who have cohabitated. Perspectives change once you say "I do." The packages are designed to help you discover your "growth areas" and build a strong, vitalized relationship for the rest of your lives.
