Congratulations on your engagement!!
I'm so excited that you found me, Misty Cowell Bergman, wife, mother of three and grandmother to one (so far). I know that no two couples are alike, and your special day should reflect you. My specialty is helping couples put that vision into reality and making it a day to remember and cherish forever.
Not only is the wedding day important but also the lifelong commitment that you are entering into. I want you to have a love filled marriage that lasts forever and the tools and resources to help you do so. As a marriage educator, I can assist you with the resources, knowledge and skills to help sustain a healthy, fulfilling relationship.
I’m a true romantic at heart and I want to make sure to deliver a special experience, an unforgettable day, a celebration of love that you and your loved ones will always remember.
Your wedding will include the booking of so many different things to make it special and your officiant is just as important, Your wedding officiant shares with you that one intimate moment in time and I want to be sure as a participant in that moment that it as perfect as it can be for you. It’s a very important part but I don’t wish for it to be the most expensive part either.
Every wedding is different, and I will make sure to customize my obligations to fit you. Whether is be a small intimate ceremony, a large gathering or a themed wedding I am here for you. I will say that one of my more memorable weddings was a 1920’s theme and we all dressed the part; I am open to anything. Below is a list of what is included with me as an officiant.
*No obligation consultation
*Personalized wedding ceremony script that you chose so it conveys your uniqueness and love
*Vow assistance (review) if you chose to write your own vows
