Since writing my original introduction a year as passed already. My husband & I celebrated another anniversary making it 17yrs and counting. I have been humbled and honored to officiate a few more weddings & in the process of writing two more ceremonies coming up this fall. The couples I have met have beautiful love stories from how they met, their first dates, when they knew they were in love, and what their dreams are for the future. I love each and every one of them & their unique stories. If you or someone you know is engaged message me to set a meet & greet. MV 9/14/19
I am a romantic at heart and believe in the power of love. My BFF Robert and I have been married for over 16 yrs. Our marriage works because we are individuals who together support one another in reaching our dreams. I believe that the ability to communicate in both good and difficult times makes for a solid foundation.
I was asked to officiate a wedding ceremony in August of 2018. I wasn’t even a JP at the time. How exciting this was and honored that they thought of me for such an important event. My mind was swimming with questions; it’s all I could think about. In less than 6 months I applied for my JP designation, conducted lots of research and set a time line. Now I’ve written my own wedding vows and I’ve done some public speaking; I was feeling confident. Once I learned there would be 200 guests, I won’t lie, I felt a bit light-headed. However up for the challenge, I picked up my big girl pants and got to work. Met with the bride and groom, a couple of times. I forwarded a couple of ceremony drafts to make sure they were pleased with the direction I was going.
I wanted so much to do a good job and most of all I wanted it to be all about the bride and groom. In the end, it went well. You might ask how I know this, because there was not a dry eye in the house. I honestly fell in love with the process of getting to know my client’s love story, and learning what was important to them, who they were as individuals as well as a couple, allowing me to created their one of a kind ceremony.
It would be my absolute honor and privilege to assist you in planning your special ceremony.
