With 10 years experience in the Minneapolis-St Paul Metro, we have received 200 reviews from couples like you who testify to our commitment, skills and value as Officiants.  We also care for couples as Wedding Doulas & Marriage Enrichment Specialists!

Each couple and wedding is given our utmost attention and creativity!  You can be assured that your ceremony will surpass your expectations. With our MA degrees in theology/spirituality, we deepen the meaning of your ceremony wherever you are on the spectrum of atheistic or agnostic to non-religious/spiritual to more religious.  Interfaith and International couples also seek us out to express the bridging of their varied spiritual backgrounds.

CREDENTIALS: Each of us holds a Master of Arts Degree and Certifications in three areas that uniquely qualify us as professional Officiants and Marriage Enrichment Specialists:  Life Coach/Relationship Specialists (CPCC),  Enneagram Personality Profile Consultants, and Spiritual Guidance (inclusive approach).   Couples appreciate our ability to offer enriching insights building on your strengths as individuals and as a couple.

FREE, NO-OBLIGATION CONSULTATIONS:  We offer each couple a free, no-obligation consultation (in-person, by phone or Skype)  We listen carefully to you.  Services and fee are discussed once we are clear about the variety of possibilities you will choose for your rehearsal and wedding day.   Following the consult, you have time to consider how you wish to proceed before letting us know your decision.

We look forward to hearing from you and then one of us will promptly reply to learn more about your hopes for your wedding day.

MARRIAGE ENRICHMENT

“It was so refreshing to spend time with other couples getting married and focusing on the marriage instead of just the wedding itself.  We were given tools and common language that will serve us well into our marriage life.  Thank you!” – Testimonial 2019 Marriage Enrichment Day.

 Marriage Enrichment has been an integral part of our  profession as officiants since 2010.  As you enter this new chapter, the best gift we can offer you are the tools  to create the marriage you imagine.

The state of MN grants a $75 discount on your Marriage Liciense when you participate in 12 hours of Marriage Enrichment.  The discount is granted via a notarized statement which we are uniquely qualified to offer you.

We begin with the premise that you are healthy and happy as a couple and have already successfully navigated some difficulties.  It is our understanding that you share the intention of growing your love in the decades ahead.

We offer you the following optional resources (#1 is our free gift to each couple planning their wedding day ceremony with us)

RESOURCE #1     MARRIAGE ENRICHMENT DISCUSSION QUESTIONS to explore on your own. When you complete 12 hours at your convenience, you receive from us a  $75 notarized discount on your MN marriage license!
