Weddings

Getting Married?Eva and Komba getting married in Nashua.

If you are getting married, your special day deserves a personal touch.  A lot of people can help you get ready for a wedding day or ceremony. I help you get ready for a marriage–a chance to enjoy the rest of your life together with the most important person in your life.

I have done weddings as a DJ (many moons ago), as a Videographer, and as a Pastor. I can help you work through the process and keep your sanity and your relationship too.  I work with couples in three key areas:  A Marriage Assessment, Premarital Coaching, and a Personalized Ceremony that honors God and celebrates your love and commitment to each other.

Marriage Assessment

Relationships are hard work.  Even a match made in heaven takes work to maintain.  Your wedding package includes a SYMBIS assessment.  SYMBIS, Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts was developed by psychologists, counselors, and NY Times Best Selling Authors, Drs Les and Leslie Parrott.  They share a passion for helping others build healthy relationships.

In this 45-second video, Chris and Toni Crary how the SYMBIS book and assessment helped them.

Premarital Coaching

I still remember playing softball many years ago.  I was at the plate, swinging away with no idea where the ball was.  I heard a trusted voice behind me saying “Swing high.”  Without giving it too much thought, I realized I should do what I was going to do but with one small adjustment, I’d swing a bit higher than I thought I should.  I connected with the next pitch and was on base!  Sometimes, we just need to hear from someone with an objective perspective.

A happy couple after the wedding.Even top professionals need expert coaching.  Just think, where would the Patriots be without Coach Belichick?  You could go on and on with other examples of how good coaching can make a difference.

You can build your marriage on more than a hope and a prayer. The SYMBIS Assessment combined with 4-6 premarital coaching sessions will help lay a solid foundation for a lifetime together.  We’ll also give you a personalized roadmap to making your marriage everything it was meant to be.

During our times together, we’ll discuss and work through some tools and ways to begin a lifetime of discovering your mate and how to live together in a way that you both bring out the best in each other.  You may not be able to imagine it now, but that wonderful person you are planning to marry has his or her own thoughts, background, and habits that are different than yours.  Over time, they will give you both opportunities to work through some issues together, instead of allowing them to drive you crazy or drive you apart.

Personalized Ceremony

I have a very high view of marriage.  I know the challenges and joy that a happy marriage can bring.  All too often, I also see the devastation that divorce can bring.  That’s why I work so hard to prepare people for marriage before it even starts.

We’ll cover the nature of a marriage and what that means.  We will honor the true nature of marriage but we will also make this personal and relevant for you.  We will customize the wedding ceremony that will be meaningful and memorable for you.   We will develop personalized wedding vows and ceremony that honors God and celebrates your commitment to each other

Let me know how I can help you.  If you already have an officiant and just need some coaching, I can help.  If you need coaching and someone to perform the wedding, I can help with that too,  If you are a church or organization with a group of people getting married soon, I’d love to talk with you about offering a seminar or workshop.
