How to Create a Perfect Wedding

One of the questions I am often asked is, "So, after officiating over 1,000 weddings, do you feel you've seen it all?" Far from it!

Every wedding is wonderfully unique, interesting and creative.  Indeed, the next wedding is a new experience every time.  There are, however, seven truths that remain consistent and resourceful for both couples and officiants to know and understand in order to create a perfect wedding.  These overarching truths as the same for all weddings, regardless of the unique factor.

""Rev. Jody provided us with wisdom and knowledge from her then 20-year career in the wedding business. I am so grateful for her sharing her knowledge with us. I can't stress enough how much you will love partaking in her officiant classes!! "

"Rev. Jody is an excellent teacher of all things spiritual and what could be more spiritual and sacred than weddings?! Since completing ministry school I have officiated weddings and other sacred ceremonies with confidence. Rev. Jody provided the foundation to create meaningful weddings by teaching us the mechanics and elements of a ceremony, as well as techniques for interviewing wedding couples and how to research cultural traditions emphasizing that the best wedding ceremony reflects the values of the couple and provides their guests with a heartfelt experience. I highly recommend taking this class if you want to be a great wedding officiant."

"Jody assists with invaluable advise on what important wedding planning questions to ask; how to elicit the feel of what the bride and groom desire when they look back at their wedding some years later and a guide to that perfect wedding rehearsal from beginning to end. And then those small but oh so important things to know about their special day. I can not recommend anything as valuable as this time in consultation, whether it be a personal consultation or in a class, to propel you from a ‘good’ to an 'excellent’ Wedding Officiant “ "
