An incredible way to further personalize your wedding ceremony is through a Love Story. Everyone’s story is different, and yours, told during the ceremony, helps people to really enjoy being there on that day with you – your family and friends will learn things about you they didn’t previously know, and you will have goosebumps as I read your story and remind you of your beginnings as a couple, the struggles and fun stuff you went through together, what you’re life is like now, and what your plans and dreams for the future are. Remember, though, your love story will be specially written for you – so it will include whatever you choose to tell – no more, no less!
Many family members are surprised that I didn’t know the couple before being hired as their officiate. That’s because I have a way of getting to know you – getting to know the essence of who you are individually, and as a couple. First, you fill out a detailed questionnaire – then we meet. And that meeting often lasts 2 hours, as we not only review the questionnaire, but I also find out things you may not have been willing to talk about before. But no worries! Nothing, absolutely nothing, goes into your ceremony that you don’t want there. Our meeting, and your disclosures (if you wish) is the way I get to the heart of your relationship. And though I don’t speak all of what I learn, everything I learn makes the story come alive!
Once I have all the information I need, I write your story…or should I say, your story writes itself! Often couples ask during our meeting what the story will be like. I can tell you I honestly don’t know until I write it. And just like the rest of the ceremony, you will be welcomed to edit it however you wish. Your ceremony – your perfect ceremony – will be just that! And together, we make it perfect. Just ask any of the couple’s I’ve married.
Thanks for reading! Let’s talk about your ceremony!
