How This All Works: Working Together

Easy and with Enthusiasm. Joyful. Anticipatory! 

BlakeAdamThis process of coming together around your wedding ceremony is easy!

You first contact me and after getting briefly acquainted on the phone or via email, we arrange a time and place for a no-pressure, no-commitment meeting.

During our initial meeting, I will invite you tell me about yourselves, individually and as a couple, and we will discuss the style and tone of a ceremony that suits you.  I will include questions that may be fun and useful to ask yourselves as your marriage ceremony comes into focus.  I can also bet we’ll do a little brainstorming to insure we are the best match to share in your wedding day.

And within 24 hours, you will receive via email a quote for services.

A Shared Clear Vision: If you have a clear vision of the ceremony you desire, I honor it down to the smallest detail. If you know the feeling you want to convey but don’t have a clear vision of what things would “look like,” I will brainstorm with you until we have a structure and a set of elements that feel just right.  Finally, I will submit a draft of your ceremony script for your review and approval well in advance of your wedding date.

You ceremony may incorporate readings, music, and other elements such as a blessing of the rings, hand-fasting, jumping the broom, breaking the glass with a happy “l’chaim,” some extra flourish we invent ourselves – or none of these. If you wish, I will gladly assist you in writing your personal vows as I specialize in composing special blessings and good wishes.

All About You/At Your Service:  Truly, this process is all about you and what you want for your wedding ceremony.  I will check-in with you every step of the way to ensure that your ceremony evolves exactly as you want it.  I am available for unlimited consultations by phone, Skype or email until the wedding day itself.  And if required, I will lead your wedding rehearsal/walk-thru.

When your big day comes, I direct and officiate at the ceremony itself and you can rest easy knowing that the logistics and the spirit of the event have been lovingly and meticulously taken care of.  I will see to the proper signing and filing of your license and provide a keepsake copy of your ceremony as an heirloom memento of your unforgettable day.
