How thankful I am for beautiful weather to return to Virginia! I had a wonderful wedding at the Portsmouth Woman's Club and the facility is beautiful!
The venue coordinator said they are booked on Saturdays through August 2015 but had lots of openings for Fridays and Sundays.
The wedding was on the back deck and this deck was built with weddings in mind. It has a white pergola that stretches over the wedding party to give us mottled shade and to add to the drama and beauty of the occasion.
There are 2 dramatic staircases off the deck into the back yard and the one closest to the pergola is perfect for the entrance of the officiate, groom and his entourage.
The inside of the building has the caterer's dream kitchen, an upstairs Bride's room and Groom's room, a sitting room, and a very large grand ballroom for the reception. This room has been tastefully remodeled and has the original wood floors and lots of chandeliers and sconces to help create the festive atmosphere. If the wedding must be indoors, the beautiful staircase into the grand ballroom permits a dramatic entrance by the Bridal party. The ballroom also has walls of windows to let in the natural light and a front veranda complete with large outdoor fireplace for the cocktail hour, or a more intimate wedding gathering.
Thank you Bride and Groom for allowing me the privilege of officiating for you and please share some photos when you can!
I don't discuss with many of you the fact that I have had debilitating fibromyalgia for about 10 years. My wonderful husband makes it possible for me to be able to officiate your services. He drives me to all my meetings and weddings so I can take my pain medicine as needed and still have the stamina and the rest I need to give you my all in your ceremonies. He also owns and manages the wedding business, so all I do is officiate. He is so creative and great with computers and communication. It is his faithfulness that has kept me from missing or cancelling any weddings. He keeps my spirits up and gives me massages when I have a lot of pain. Thank you Clinton for allowing me the privilege to officiate weddings. This makes me feel like my life is worthwhile again.

I found another new element that religious couples can incorporate into their wedding ceremony! It is called the Unity Cross and the wording is just beautiful. The Cross you purchase online comes in two pieces. The groom is represented by the cross; the bride by the ornate scroll work that is inserted inside the cross. I have the words to this too, and it quotes some Scripture which makes it even more special!
