CONGRATULATIONS ON CHOOSING NEW MEXICO FOR YOUR WEDDING

I’f you’re looking for a spiritual wedding ceremony filled with grace, love and joy, contact Rev. Karen to arrange an appointment to talk about the ceremony of your dreams.
Whatever your spiritual traditions and beliefs are, Rev. Karen works closely with you to ensure that your wedding ceremony is a unique reflection of your love, commitment and union. Her
desire is to co-create a personal and customized wedding service that honors your individuality and love.
Some couples like to create personalized content of the service, such as vows, readings, and rituals. Others ask Rev. Karen to draw on her experience to create the entire ceremony.
Rev. Karen’s style creates a relaxing atmosphere which allows the wedding party to fully experience the beauty and magic of the joining of two people in love.
You are encouraged to seek inner guidance about what will make your wedding a true unique reflection of the two of you.
In the planning meeting, Rev. Karen will enjoy the experience of getting to know you, and you will have the opportunity to learn more about the minister you have chosen for your
wedding. You will discuss your vision for your wedding ceremony; and review the ceremony elements including your vows, music selections and family involvement in the ceremony.
You will also complete and sign the Reservation form and pay your deposit. You will discuss your general plan and ideas for your ceremony location, date, attendants, rehearsal, style and
tone.
Rev. Karen will have many suggestions, ideas and recommendations for you to consider. She is happy to email you her Wedding Planning Guide prior to the meeting. She recommends that
you take a day off together just to focus on what you want your special ceremony to express.

From the rustic western atmosphere of Albuquerque, to the historic inns of Santa Fe, to the raw natural beauty of Taos … your “Land of Enchantment” wedding will be magical.

Choose from a bounty of spectacular natural landmarks, historical churches, or romantic inns with lush gardens and traditional furnishings.

DESIGNING YOUR CEREMONY

Every couple has a vision for their wedding day. We’ll work closely together, within your spiritual tradition, to design a ceremony that reflects and honors your unique love.

I’ll spend time getting to know you, understand your vision, and offer suggestions for vows, readings, and rituals.  My goal is to create THE perfect ceremony just for you!

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER

•  Do you want your ceremony to feel formal, casual, traditional?

•  Do you want to write your own vows?

•  Do you have a special poem to read to each other?

•  What meaningful music would you like to include?

•  How did you meet? Can that special moment be included in your ceremony?

•  Will you exchange rings?

•  Would you like to include a candle, rose, or sand ritual?

•  Are you blending families? Would you like to include them in your ceremony?

•  How will you be introduced to your guests at the end of the ceremony?

 

COORDINATING YOUR WEDDING

I will walk with you every step of the way: choosing the elements for your ceremony, a rehearsal to practice music cues, a perfect bride’s entrance, attendants’ positions and photo poses … all leading to a smooth wedding ceremony where you relax and enjoy the magic of the moment.
