As you begin planning for your wedding, it is our job as your minister to make sure your ceremony is both a memorable event and a reflection of your relationship. We serve as a listener and a guide and we will work with you to create a service that reflects your desires, choices, values, and beliefs. We are a resource for you, drawing on our experience with over 1400 couples. 

Preparation for a marriage is key, and getting ready for a wedding as opposed to getting ready for a marriage are two separate things. Every wedding couple receives premarital counseling as a part of their service. However, if you are seeking couples counseling (pre or post wedding) as a stand-alone service, we would be more than happy to help you as well.
