This is a time of great joy often overshadowed by a busyness you haven’t foreseen. Your house is perhaps strewn with books and magazines displaying today’s finest dresses, flower decorations, latest trends, etc. Or, there may be a quiet absence of these things because you desire a simpler occasion.

Add a little spice to your wedding with a professional bagpipe player!

Whether of not this is the case for you, one thing is for sure. You and your betrothed will stand before someone and exchange vows. While rings, dresses, invitations, and other aspects of a wedding are important...

Nothing is more important than the words that will be spoken during the ceremony...

This is the covenant…the spiritual and legal agreement. It is without question the most important aspect of your wedding. Without it, you only have an arrangement and no foundation on which to build your family and your future. I always tell couples, “Marriage is the foundation of human civilization. When we cheapen marriage, we cheapen ourselves.” Whether your wedding is formal in Houston, Galveston, Kemah, or an informal beach wedding, the most import focus should be the terms of the covenant. It outweighs the venue by far!

In a day and age when divorce in America has surpassed 50% (that figure is the same even inside Christian circles), wouldn’t it be wise to make every effort to prevent this from happening to you and the person you treasure and respect so much? If you have been divorced and are now entering a new marriage, don’t you desire with all your heart to never experience the pain, sorrow, and loss of divorce again? Keep in mind; the divorce rate for second marriages has soared above 65%!

Is there something that can be done to help improve the success of a marriage? YES! While is has been said that, “a wedding is an event, but a marriage is an accomplishment”, I fully believe that...

Your ceremony can be the beginning point for establishing God's blessing on your marriage.

While there are no guarantees in life, a blessed wedding (and a clear understanding of God’s covenant) will give you a strong foundation on which to build your family and future. Remember the words of our Lord, “the wise man built his house upon a rock!”

It’s my pleasure to introduce to you the beauty and treasure of a “covenant marriage” which begins in what I call “A Blessed Wedding.” In this ceremony, you open yourselves to a covenant that God can and will bless. You set the foundation stone for a future and a hope and an anchor that will hold through all the storms of life.

You do have power to shape your future...and it begins with "A Blessed Wedding!"

Currently, divorce laws in almost every state give greater legal rights to spouses who want to end the marriage than to spouses who want to try to work out their marital problems.
