This June will mark my third anniversary as a wedding officiant. What began as a way to earn additional cash for my photography studio soon became my main business. I fell in love with the business of love.
Since then, I’ve moved my location. I’ve added more packages. I’ve had the honor of marrying couples from New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio. I’ve also married couples that traveled from as far as China, Turkey, and The Netherlands. Meeting and marrying these couples have brought unexpected blessings to my life.
As I move forward, I want to offer more services to couples in the Mid-Ohio Valley and beyond beginning with SYMBIS — Saving Your Marriage Before It Begins. I’m going to offer this class in a variety of formats beginning this spring.
SYMBIS is a pre- and post-marriage assessment that has been used by more than a million couples. Here’s a message from its founders:
You’ll receive a personalized map for making your marriage all it can be. I’ll offer both couples coaching as well as group classes. My goal is to launch this full time in March. You do not have to use my wedding officiant services to enroll. This program is open to all couples. You’ll receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program that you can show when you apply for your marriage license.
SYMBIS has been revised to help married couples too. Regardless of whether you’re pre-engaged, engaged, or have been married before, it’s a great program.
Additionally, I’m going to offer a lot of information about making your wedding day the best it can be. I want to help couples create the wedding of their dreams, regardless of whether that means you get married secretly or want to invite as many people as your venue can accommodate. I’ll be offering tips on my blog as well as my YouTube channel. I’ll share that link very soon..
Finally, I want to put a little fun in your wedding day. I’m adding a store to my website. You’ll be able to order t-shirts, cups, and other personalized items. I’ll roll this out a little at a time and will keep everyone informed here as well as on my Facebook page.
I’ll also have a few surprises that I’ll share as I’m ready to launch them. I am so excited to combine my background in counseling, teaching, writing, and officiating to take Mid-Ohio Valley Wedding Officiants to the next level.
