Q - When did you start your business?
A - This will be my tenth anniversary year!
Q - What made you start
A - It was practically accidental.
Q - Describe a typical wedding day for you.
A - I do some social media work. I arrive at the venue about an hour to forty-five minutes before the ceremony. I get the paperwork and go over the ring exchange with the bride. I go over the ring exchange with the groom. I hang out until it is time. We do the thing. I get a selfie with the B&G. I go home, fill out the paperwork, put it in the mail and text the B&G it is done. I do the post ceremony social media work. Have a beer (2) and go to bed.
Q - How do you stay motivated?
A - When I see how pleased my clients are, it motivates me to be better.
Q - What advice would you give to someone just starting out in the wedding business?
A - Be open and flexible. Learn from your mistakes and mishaps. Set up a process: Marketing Calendar management Execution Follow up, and be disciplined with that process.
Q - If it all ended tomorrow (my being an officiant not my being) how would you feel.
A - I would miss it terribly. I would try to hold on to the Dr. Seuss quote, “Don’t cry because it is over. Smile because it happened.”
