For me, if I have the date/time open, I find it best for us to meet face-to-face at a neutral place like a restaurant or STARBUCKS so we can talk.
You share your story, hopes, expectations and you will get to know me and ask me questions. This can be done via the phone if a couple lives out of the area.
If we both agree to work together then we can sign an agreement form and initiate the designing process for the wedding service of your dreams.
The "Ultimate" & "Premier" Ceremony starts with a 20 page planning form (10 pages of ceremony details + 10 pages of vows and readings ideas); getting all your ideas down on paper then writing a full script that you edit and ultimately approve.
I get frequent requests from weddings scheduled at:
The Paine Art Center (Oshkosh), Heritage Hill State Park (Allouez), SEPIA Wedding Chapel (East GB), The MARQ-(DePere), LAMBEAU FIELD, Cornerstone Chapel (Appleton), Homestead Meadows (Appleton), Pullman's Trolley Square (Appleton), The Bridgewood (Neenah), Stone Harbor Resorts and Gordon Lodge in Door County, & Red Mill in Waupaca, Van Abels in Hollandtown, High Cliff State Park, SMITH Park and Doty Park in Menasha and lots of beautiful backyards and country clubs.
I also enjoy working with couples if they are looking for a non-traditional service themes such as Harleys/motorcycles, boats/fishing, Hot Air balloons, and on farms.
Most of my custom services run between 20-30 minutes. It all depends on what a couple wants. More elements, more songs = a longer service.
I usually do a brief 3 minute personal message based on a idea that the couple wants to convey to their guests like: Love & Respect, New Beginnings, Unity, etc.
Pre-marital counseling is available for couples who want to work on their relationship. We address issues like: Money, Communication, SEX, Children & parenting, Time, Respect, Faith, In-laws, Love Languages...
This is not required by me but highly recommended.
For 2013-we (myself, Pastors' Carol & Dave) will do around 100 services.
THANK YOU Notes:
Kathleen & Steve: You did an amazing job! We praise you for the flexibility with the weather-you made the perfect call. We are so pleased.
From Parents: We wanted to express our gratitude again for the wonderful ceremony for Matthew and Kim. I can't tell you the number of guests that commented about the service and how it so reflected the spirit of the bride and groom...it was memorable. Mom and Dad Liebhart
