Our wedding day..July 31st, 2004


What a grand thing, to be loved!
What a grander thing still, to love!

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
that word is love.

About us and why we do this......


We look forward to meeting you and helping you plan your perfect day. Your wedding day is a day you will always remember.. where you will be surrounded by all your friends and family and we hope you will consider us friends by the time we perform your wedding ceremony.

So.....here is a little bit about us.
Jeff and I have known each other since we were in high school  on Whidbey Island, Wash. We both attended college in Seattle, dated and became engaged but didn't end up getting married. We both went on to other marriages and had families but kept in touch through reunions and friends. We reconnected in 2002 through his 30th reunion, began dating and where married in 2004.

 Over the years I have planned many weddings and receptions and found one of the hardest parts was finding the perfect person to conduct the ceremony. If you don't belong to a church most minister won't even talk to you (some are down right rude). So you find a local officiant but some don't want to travel far, many seem kinda stuffy, many are way too religious for our taste, many require premarital counseling, most don't take much time going over the details or  won't allow for customized vows and most have only a few sample ceremonies to choose from. They have all done this many times and don't seem to understand you haven't. 

My husband and I both  have other full time jobs but we wanted something extra that we could do together that would incorporate my love of weddings, event planning and some travel. We decided to become ordained ministers/officiants through the Universal Life Church so we could help couples get married the way they want too. We wanted to offer services that we found lacking in most other officiants we had talked too.

We started our business in 2006 and planned on doing 'maybe' 12-15 weddings a year for fun.....we did over 60 and turned away over 200 our first year!! We were nominated in 'The Best Of Western Washington' poll for best wedding coordinators in Seattle our 1st year, we came in 7th!! That was pretty good considering we were so new at it. This year we came in 2nd for Best Wedding Officiant in Houston on the Houston A-List Poll.

We have done over 2500 weddings, including hosting several large weddings at our home so we have lots of experience and great ideas to share. 

In the spring of 2009 we found out our daughter was going to have a baby!!  Since she lives in Houston we packed up and moved to Texas!  We are now the proud grandparents to little Aubrey and her new little brother Gavin
