On the 23rd of April, my very own wedding day, a Notary Public came to our home, amongst our family and friends and officiated our wedding ceremony. Our wedding day was amazing! I had carefully coordinated everything from the invitations to the honeymoon! My husband was so impressed with how beautiful our wedding turned out that he suggested I would make an awesome Wedding Officiant and should start a new career doing weddings. At first I thought, “Me??” I was nervous at just the thought of standing in front of a large group of people, I thought, “No way!” habitant sapien odio ac scelerisque praesent id.
Then it came up again in the days to follow, this time my husband was sincerely encouraging me to consider the idea. He sounded so confident that I would be perfect for officiating weddings as a career and I too started to feel intrigued. So, the next day I called Claire, our Wedding Officiant, and after she answered a million questions I started to think, “Maybe I could do this after all!” I was immediately pleased with how right it felt as I envisioned myself in a new career as a Wedding Officiant. Within a few weeks I commenced to launch my new career in the wedding business!
I will never forget this one! I was so nervous I could feel myself trembling inside but trying not to show it of course! Not too long into it I realized I was not alone … the bride & groom were just as nervous as I was. It was so cute! I had recycled the wedding arch and bridal accessories from my own wedding for this couple as a rental. Suddenly I’m an Entrepreneur!
I learned some time ago that our career paths often come to be what they are from something that had a profound impact on us in our adolescence, like between ages 5 & 7. I gave that some thought. I realized that for me, at 7 years old my parent had split up. My parent’s breakup had a huge impact on me. I was devastated. I didn’t want my family to be broken up. This event, their breakup, created my destiny. Since 1997, at 32 years of age I dedicated myself to healing the split, in essence, by joining couples together in matrimony and eternal love.
I have 3 girl friends and 3 male friends which I hooked up on blind dates. This was years ago. As it turns out each of those couples had an amazing first date and have since married each other. Some have had children, and all have been happily married ever since. The longest is 25 years, before Beautiful Bridal Ceremonies officially came into existence!
83 years old, approached me at the end of a ceremony, which was her 5th and youngest granddaughter’s wedding ceremony. She reached for my hand and said, “Thank you”. I stood paused, a little confused, as she continued to speak softly, “I have seen all of my grandchildren marry and I have been to each of their weddings. This is my youngest granddaughter and the last to be married. When my granddaughter told me that a Notary Public would be officiating at her wedding I was disappointed that they would not be married in the church.” She continued, “But after hearing your ceremony, I must tell you, I listened to your every word and I was very touched by what you expressed to my granddaughter and her new husband and how pointed and well-chosen the words you shared with them today. I’m saying “Thank you” because I am very pleased with your performance here today and you fit the part perfectly! God bless you!”
