With the world as big or small as it is now, it is not unusual for couples to be living in one part of the country or world and get married in another. With a bit more organization and the use of modern technology wedding planning can be very easy.
Here is how I have done this at Pond Side Ministries. First of all couples find me most often through referrals, but I am also available through my website and other advertising. This is usually the first point of contact. After that I usually encourage couples to chat with me via FaceTime if possible, or via a phone call. That way we can actually see each other, exchange information about the services I provide, but most importantly what you as a couple are looking for as far as a Wedding Ceremony. This way we get to see if we are a ‘good fit’.
Once a couple decides upon my services, I can share resources/info through emails and phone calls are requested.
This process works quite well. I have married couples that have planned their wedding from as close as Toronto and Ottawa to as far as Winnipeg, Vancouver and Australia. There are couples that I didn’t meet until the rehearsal or wedding day and when we met, it really felt like we already knew each other. They were very happy with my services and I was delighted to finally meet them.
This process can also be used when coordinating with the DJ, venue etc. Modern technology makes wedding planning only a click away. The wedding above was a wonderful couple that planned the wedding with me from north of Winnipeg.
