*  A $50.00 deposit is required to hold your wedding day for you.  Forms of payment are Cash, Checks and Credit Cards.

*  The balance is due, no exceptions, one week prior to your wedding ceremony taking place.


*  I will create a beautiful Keepsake copy for you.

*  I remain committed to exceeding your expectations!!   

 A Wedding Consultation is easy to do and something I recommend highly!  I want my couples to feel completely comfortable with me, knowing they made the right decision in hiring me for their special day.  My goal is that you feel a friend is marrying you and not some stranger your met online. 

First, schedule an appointment for a Complimentary Consultation via Skype, FaceTime, telephone or in-person.  In-person consultations are held in a convenient location agreed upon by both the couple and myself, or in my office in Rio Rancho, Sandoval County.  I am close to Coronado Historical Site on Route 550.

Weekday and weekend consultations are available but must be made in advance.

Are you an “Out-of-Town Bride?”  Planning a Wedding from a distance is never a problem!  I offer unlimited Skype, FaceTime or telephone meetings.




Additional Options


If you would like me to attend and run your rehearsal, then I m happy to be there for you.  I will go over with you and your wedding party all the ceremony actions for your special day.  I will make sure everyone is comfortable with their part in the ceremony.

At-Home Marriage Preparation Course:                                                                      

Although this is not a mandatory course in the State of New Mexico, this course gives you the tools to open up and talk to one another about topics you might feel uncomfortable with.  This course is done in the privacy of your own home, at your leisure.  There is no grading.  This is just a tool to help couples open up with one another prior to getting married.  If this is something you might be interested in please let me know at our consultation.

Vow Renewal:​                                                                      

I will be happy to work with you to create exactly the kind of celebration you desire and to make your special day of renewal truly unforgettable.  All wedding provisions (except for the non-requirement of a marriage license) will still apply to all Vow Renewal Ceremonies.  A presentation copy of your ceremony and a certificate of Vow Renewal will be provided to the couple.

Baby Blessing:                    

​"A Grand Beginning" now offers Baby Blessing Ceremonies!  Having a ceremony for your infant is a great way to gather your family and friends and create a memorable day as your child begins their life.  I will prepare your Baby Blessing Ceremony like my Wedding Ceremony, giving all aspects of this ceremony the personalization your little one deserves.  Call me today for all the beautiful options I have to honor your baby.
