OFFICIATING a marriage to help create a perfect and thoughtful ceremony.
PRE-MARRIAGE COACHING can be vital for the preparation of a long-term, successful, and thriving marriage.
MARRIAGE COACHING toward a stronger, growing, vibrant marriage or restoring what may seem to be lost. After the first year and beyond.
COUNSELING during stresses, distractions, disappointments, or loss that could otherwise diminish or deteriorate a marriage relationship. Rejuvenating a relationship may require counseling or coaching; either of these processes can be life changing.
Whatever YOU need.
OUR 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 60 to 90 minutes. 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.
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.
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 the inclusion of sacred or non-sacred elements and use of readings as well as instrumental or vocal music. We will also discuss 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.
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.

Why a Package?
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.

"Our day would have not been the same without Randy. My husband and I were very worried about not having someone that we have grown up with or known for a long time to officiate our wedding. When we found Randy, we thought hey, lets chat and see what we think about this officiant idea. So glad we did! We are in Texas so we could not meet face to face, but Randy set up a Skype meeting for us. He helped us build a ceremony that was unique to us and offered up some great suggestions for readings. He also coordinated with the Grooms sister who gave a surprise reading to make sure everything fit together. We had him come to the rehearsal as well, which is extra, but we were glad he was there to run it through with us. My dad was so nervous and kept forgetting his only line! Randy helped keep the mood light and get us prepped for the next day. Sure enough, the next day I cried through the whole ceremony. Randy did a great job of giving me time to gain my composure while keeping everything smooth and not awkward or feel like everyone was waiting on me. He was so genuine and we got amazing compliments about him and our ceremony! I would highly recommend Randy for your big day." ~ K&J, October, 2016
"As a planner, Randy is an easy officiant to work with. I will recommend his services in the future to those who are without an officiant for their wedding."
