Above all else, I can guarantee two things to each and every one of my couples.
Number one: there will be so surprises!
Each couples is sent a draft of their ceremony script to review ahead of time.
I am a true believe that this is YOUR wedding day, so while I may love the ceremony I've scripted for you, unless you're pleased it doesn't matter.
I'm more than willing to edit until you're both 100 % pleased. Though my true goal is to exceed your expectations!
I tell couples all the time: during the ceremony you're going to be in your own world. You'll be looking at one another, speaking with your eyes... and more often than not you'll quietly be speaking to one another during the ceremony ( I think it's cute!). You will only actually hear about 50% of what I'm saying, so at least you'll know ahead of time that everything I'm saying is exactly what you wanted!
Number two: it will all go smoothly!
Experience is the only reason I can make this guarantee. When I arrive at the venue I always do a mini-run through of the ceremony with each couple. We go over the hand-off with the brides escort, the ring cues with whomever will be holding the rings, the flower cues with the maid / matron of honor, and then I go over exactly what the couple should expect during the ceremony.
But once the ceremony begins, I pretend that the couple doesn't know a thing and I guide them every step of the way.
I go slowly, saying only a few words at a time when there's a repeat after me. I quietly prep you with your response before I ask a question, and when
I need you to do something (like join hands or complete a task for a unity ceremony) I tell you exactly what to do.
The ceremony sets the tone for the rest of your day, and I don't take that lightly!
I’m here for my couples every step of the way…
From the moment they make contact; be it through email, a phone call, or social media, I do my best to make the process enjoyable and stress free. Couples can be as hands-on or as hands-off as they’d like when it comes to scripting their ceremony. And in the end, each couple has the final say over every word I say, unless their wish is to be surprised!
It’s all in the details….
With an in-person meeting, a questionnaire, phone calls, and emails I’m able to get to the core of their love for one another and craft a ceremony that’s personal and meaningful!
Logistics and preparation are key…
Together we go over; preparing for the day, what they should expect during the ceremony, obtaining the marriage license, tissues on hand, maintaining eye contact with one another throughout the entire ceremony, holding that first kiss so I can get out of the way & they’ll get the perfect photo of that ever so important moment (without me in the background)!
Making them feel at ease….
With confidence, experience, and genuine passion I’m able to emit a feeling of calm and assurance to even the most nervous couples. They’re confident in knowing that I will guide them every step of the way through the ceremony, and in turn they feel a true connection with one another during the ceremony! ~ Some have described it as “electric”
