About Us


We live in a difficult time right now. Social Distancing and Precautions are all around us, which makes it a challenge for couples who set their hearts on a Spring Wedding in 2020. For Couples who want to gather with 5 or less participants, and pursue a small wedding ceremony at an open location, I am here to serve. Even if only through live video where I can view you and Officiate the Ceremony via WebCam, the Commonwealth of Virginia will allow this during this time as a legal recognition of your Marriage. I will also help in providing you the means to secure your Marriage License.

The Wedding Ceremony is the Beginning of your Life Story as a Couple & Family. Blessings From Above Ceremonies & Services provides Wedding Officiant Services in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and the Hampton Roads area. Rev.
