I think I’ve come a long way since Shirley’s wedding last Summer. I’ve performed four wedding ceremonies since her’s, and have about 6 or 7 booked so far for this Summer. Not bad for something I didn’t even have in mind around this time last year.
The real exciting thing is that it’s becoming a little more than I initially planned. My mother-in-law stated that I missed my calling to be an event planner. I think there’s some truth in that. I really enjoy planning the shit out of things. Maybe those things are weddings.
I’m thinking that The Merry Ministers can become a one stop shop for a lot of things: officiant, photographer (Jeff), wedding coordinator (Erika is thinking of jumping on board), and list some reputable local vendors for rentals, flowers, and venues.
I love going through wedding blogs and seeing so many great ideas for stuff. I love the thought of sitting down with someone and helping them not only with their ceremony, but their wedding in general.
It’s a long way down the road, but who knows?
