Brian and Lisa are getting HITCHED

Posted on August 10, 2017 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Congratulations to high school sweethearts, Brian and Lisa. They have been together since 10th grade...a long 13 years ago. We always knew they were soulmates..made in heaven...destined to be together forever. Brian's proposal in June to my lovely daughter, Lisa, was a highlight for both our families.

September 9th is the big date. Virginia Beach, VA is the destination wedding location. I tried hard to get them HITCHED in Colonial Beach, VA. Lisa grew up at our beach home getaway during the past 22 years. However, Lisa's twin got married in Colonial Beach. Lisa wanted somewhere special that she didn't have to share. So we will be heading South for a beach wedding officiated by yours!

 Follow our journey to September 9th!  More to come next BLOG.

Show your guests who you are with spice jars on your cake!

Spice jars that represent you and your partner. Brilliant! The couple added a tiny bow tie to Cinnamon Sugar and a cute little pink veil to Asian Seasoning as a nod to their heritage.

Legally wed on the Potomac in Virginia?

Posted on June 23, 2017 at 1:30 PM Comments comments (0)

It is easy to overlook that the Potomac River along King George & Westmoreland county boundaries is under the jurisdiction of Charles County, Maryland.

If you are planning to GET HITCHED on your family's local pier or the Riverboat Restaurant or Coles Point Tavern (just to name a few places along the Potomac River), remember you are in MARYLAND and will need an official marriage license from a Maryland Courthouse.

Of course, you can get married on shore in Virginia and have a photo shoot at your favorite Maryland restaurant or pier.

Bryce Hall, Marriage Officiant, is licensed to officiate in Virginia and Maryland. It is up to YOU to have the correct marriage license.

Make sure your marriage is legal!

Make Sure Your Marriage is Legal in Virginia

Important Notice to Prospective Couples getting Married in Virginia

Every religious and civil marriage celebrant in Virginia must have obtained authorization from a Virginia Circuit Court to perform wedding ceremonies.

THREE (3) Questions You Should Ask Your Celebrant Before You Get Married:

1. Has your celebrant (either religious or civil) been authorized by a Circuit Court in Virginia to perform wedding ceremonies?

2. Does your celebrant know the location (county or city) of the Circuit Court that gave him/her the authority to perform wedding ceremonies?

3. Does your celebrant know the year the Circuit Court gave him/her the authority to perform wedding ceremonies?

If your celebrant answers YES to all of these questions, then your celebrant has been authorized to perform wedding ceremonies in Virginia.

If your celebrant answers NO to any of these questions, DO NOT GET MARRIED until either:

(i) your celebrant obtains a court order from a Circuit Court in Virginia authorizing him/her to perform wedding ceremonies; OR

(ii) you select another celebrant who is authorized to perform wedding ceremonies in Virginia.

Bryce Hall, Marriage Officiant, has been a court-appointed Marriage Commissioner since 2009.

Q. I promised my best friend that he could officiate my marriage ceremony. What should I do?

In Virginia, obtaining a one-time, court order to officiate can be challenging and time consuming.
Bryce Hall, Marriage Officiant, will be happy to meet with you prior to your big day and perform your official and legal civil marriage ceremony. Your favorite family member or friend can then officiate on your big day and no one will know but YOU!

Q. My Celebrant was not authorized to perform wedding ceremonies in Virginia and we are already married. What should we do?

If you already had your wedding performed by a non-authorized celebrant, you may need to have your marriage affirmed by the Circuit Court of Virginia that issued the license. Contact your Courthouse to discuss your options. You may need to hire an attorney to assist you with this process. 

Special Note: One local couple discovered that their celebrant was not authorized to perform their marriage ceremony.......after two years of being married. They asked me to officiate right way to make it "legal".
