Pre-Marital and Marital Workshop
The Key Elements to a Healthy Marriage
Congratulations wedding couples on your new journey! Working in the wedding business I know how much effort it takes to plan a wedding while keeping your relationship healthy. My goal is to not only help you plan your wedding, but to honor your commitment to each other. To help couples strengthen their union, I offer a relationship building course to both engaged and newly married couples.
Transitioning to married life requires specific skills to ensure your marriage remains healthy well into the future. This half-day workshop will allow you and your spouse to learn the skills to strengthen the loving foundation that brought you together. The key elements we will be exploring are the Root Cause of Conflict, Effective Listening Skills and Empathy. These powerful skills are applicable to the situations and challenges you will face throughout your marriage. Keeping the marriage healthy in good times is easy, now you will have the skills to keep the marriage healthy in challenging times as well.
The Key Elements to a Healthy Marriage is a half-day workshop Rev. Pat offers with her colleague, Delores Kokinos, owner of The Empowerment Cafe. This workshop will help you establish early patterns of open and effective communication with your partner. It will be held twice a year in the spring and fall.

Thanks to all the wonderful couples that wrote such sweet, glowing, and heartfelt reviews for us on The Knot this year! Not only did we win The Knot's 2018 Best of Weddings Award, but we also won the Hall of Fame Award. All three of us, Rev. Amy, Rev. Sarah, and I, truly love working with each and every couple we have the honor of marrying. We are grateful for such a successful wedding season and for the opportunity to work with such amazing couples. Thank you!
(The Best of Weddings Award is given to the top 2% wedding vendors nationwise and the Hall of Fame Award is given to those that have won the Best of Weddings Award four years in a row.)
Thinking of you
Small gestures can go a long way toward building connection in your marriage, even when you and your partner are apart.
For example, take a moment during your day to think positively about your partner. Then, send them a simple text message that says:
Thinking of you. ️
Your partner will feel good knowing that you were thinking of them, and lovingly so. And they'll think of you, too.
That is positive reciprocity in action, and these small things often can create big, positive changes over time.
Thank you Sarah and Rob for sharing this very sweet review for me on Wedding Wire. Wishing you all the best in your years ahead as husband and wife.
Rev Pat was simply amazing! Gave us a wide selection of how we would like the wedding. She gave us advice on other wedding things that we didn't even think of. Always on time, very pleasant, very responsive with emails and very professional. We highly recommend Rev Pat!
