Day-of Coordinating, Rehearsals, Consulting, Planning Tools

To do all the major planning yourself, check out the Wedding Planning page. There is also a Budget, Readings, Rehearsal Guide and link to Marriage License requirements. If you need someone to direct your rehearsal or could use a day-of coordinator on the big day, let's discuss what I can do for you.  If an off-site rehearsal is needed, consider an afternoon tea at our Lafayette Cottage with Rev. Dan directing your rehearsal.
