Great ending to wedding celebration!

Recently, I officiated at a wedding with a great surprise ending. They had a chorus singing spirituals!   

Everyone loved it! :)

Check out this sample.

Wedding on television…

Diane Dodd, recently highlighted one of my weddings in her blog. This particular wedding was filmed by a film crew for a Japanese film crew for a travel show.

Dr. Wayne Dyer

It was with a heavy heart that I heard of the death of Wayne Dyer this past weekend. I have heard him speak a few times in person, and was looking forward to attending his conference in just nineteen more days in Orlando. 

Some of the truths he taught ring true for me. 

1. Don’t die with your music still in you. We were each sent here on purpose. Our quest in this life is to find and live from that place. 

2. Every problem has a spiritual solution. Those things we call “problems” exist in our minds. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change. And I would further say, when we change the way we look at things, the way things look changes. 

3. We can approach life from a place of gratitude. We can start each day saying “Good morning, God” rather than “Good God, morning.”  If we choose the first approach our entire experience of the day is different. 

4. Live your passion. When we live passionately, the lines between work and play are blurred. 

5. As he quoted Chardin, “We are immortal spiritual beings, having a temporary human experience.”  This is the truth rather than the other way around. 

Thank you, Dr. Dyer. I love you. I will miss you. Until we meet again, Namaste!

Wedding hope…

When I do weddings throughout Savannah and the surrounding area, I often notice that total strangers will stop and watch. What is it about a wedding that makes total strangers stop and take note?

I believe it is the fact that all of us want to believe in love. We all want to see love in practice. We all believe in the commitment that takes place at a marriage.

What do you think?

Five Things All Newlyweds Should Know…

The confetti has settled, you’re over the threshhold and married life has officially begun…

1. A post-wedding come-down is kinda normal

The hype and excitement of planning your wedding day is nothing compared to how you’ll feel on the day itself. So needless to say, once the big day is over and you’re back to normality, you might feel a little blue for a while; think the bridal equivalent of January blues. But turn that frown upside down! Yes, your wedding day is over – which means the most exciting part, your life together as husband and wife, has just begun.

2. You’re suddenly going to be in possession of a lot of new things

If you had a gift-list you’ll find your home filled with fancy kitchen gadgets and swanky homeware pieces. What does a trivet even do? You don’t know, but you somehow feel that it will change the way you chop vegetables forever. Bathe in the joy of having lots of shiny, new things. (Not that we’re encouraging you to be materialistic.) BTW – don’t forget to write your thank-you letters!

3. Reliving your wedding day on Facebook = totally normal

It was the best day ever, so it’s only natural you want to keep replaying the highlights over and over. Be savvy; give your guests a hashtag on your wedding day (for example, #AliceAndMitchWedding) so you can see all the photos taken at your celebration (and shared on social media) with a click of your mouse.

4. Mr & Mrs date nights are essential

Just because you’re married, there’s no need to get lax; making an effort to still have quality time is as important as ever.

5. The topic of conversation is going to change rather drastically

Whereas before, people would talk to you non-stop about your wedding plans, the chat will now take a rather different route (from the chapel to the nursery, you might say). You’ll have barely had time to pack away your wedding dress before people start talking to you about babies. Endlessly. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Wedding Dilemma Solved!


Wedding Dilemma: “We Both Feel Strongly (And Differently) About Something.”
Response: Determine If the Potential Joy Will Outweigh the Suspected Pain

One of my brides wrote in sharing her wish to have her mother walk her down the aisle instead of her father who was not all that involved in her life following her parents’ divorce as a young girl. When she told her father she was surprised to learn that this deeply disturbed him. He told her, “I have not been a good father at times. ¦I realize that. But I have always hoped I could walk you down the aisle. While I may not deserve that honor it would mean the world to me. Truthfully, I will feel humiliated in front of my family and friends if I don’t’ walk you down the aisle.”

Here’s a great example of having to make a decision in the face of competing needs and values. This bride asked herself, “Would the joy of having my mother walk me down the aisle outweigh the pain it will cause my father?” When she shared this with her mother she learned that it hadn’t been her mother’s dream to walk her daughter down the aisle. This bride decided that this was an area that she could be flexible with and that the pain it would cause her father was not worth it to her and not something she wanted associated with the most important day of her life.

Marriage is not for getting all of our needs met; it’s for learning how to love and becoming more refined. We learn to give and receive love.

Whenever we have the choice to be RIGHT or be KIND, it is always better to choose to be KIND!

Hope Springs Eternal…

ImageHave you ever noticed how people, even if they are rushing by, will stop and take a moment to watch a wedding of strangers?  Why is that?

I believe that even in this cynical age, where so many things are disposable, we all yearn for the permanent commitment.  The joys of young love and the hope of a future together as well as the future of a committed love, make weddings into glorious things.

First, when we experience the vows of a new couple, it gives us an opportunity to reflect on our own commitments and relationships.  How have we done with our spouse since our marriage?  Do we still work to nurture and take care of that relationship?

Second, we support the newly married by our example.  They are taking an important step in getting married.  After the party is over and everyone has gone home, will we continue to support them in their relationship and commitment?

Weddings are, indeed, glorious things where hope springs eternal.  

To all those planning a wedding or nurturing a past wedding, happy hoping!
