hooray you're in!

“Why Marriage?” This was a particularly deep question, after my first marriage ended in divorce after 14 years. The new love of my life was, well, still new to me, so a very reasonable question to ask myself was, is this just a rebound? Will this marriage also end long before death do us part? […]

News, Telling the Story of Marriage

Last week I publicly posed a question that I often privately ask my clients in the context of writing their marriage ceremonies. Why are you marrying? And much like the answers we’ve received from clients over the years, the responses to our blog post varied. However, we did have a particular cluster of responses around […]

The Commonwealth

November 2, 2018

One of my very best friends married her husband in Virginia. I presided as the officiant at their wedding. It was a special and privileged moment for me.  It was special for her, too, but I am quite sure for different reasons. Anyway, prior to arriving in Virginia, I wanted to be sure I’d done […]
