Have you seen the news stories about the weddings that have been taking place in spite of Sandy?
Wedding Officiants were working in the wake of Sandy’s destruction and even prior to Sandy as the superstorm and mandatory evacuations loomed over them.
If the venue is destroyed and other vendors are unable to provide their goods and services, the show can still go on as long as the officiant can be there to save the day!
Since many weddings are planned far in advance some couples are choosing to go through with their previously planned weddings. They may have to change venues and make other compromises but as long as the wedding officiant is there to provide their necessary services the wedding can still take place.
One such wedding officiant is my sister. About 2 years ago I helped my sister successfully create and launch a wedding officiant business. She operates a thriving business at the Jersey Shore. My sister performed weddings on the weekend that Sandy was approaching as well as this past weekend following in the wake of Sandy. The wedding venue was damaged in the storm so the ceremony was held at someone’s home (one of the few in the area with power!) and it was a beautiful celebration!
Do you have an authentic desire to have a rewarding business as a wedding officiant? Even in the wake of a storm? I believe my sister’s business thrives due to her enthusiasm and sincere commitment to bring joy to the couple’s wedding day. I like to think another reason it is successful is that she followed my business model and directives for the tasks, actions and steps to take for starting up and promoting her wedding officiant business. You can find that same business model info on this site in the various pages and blog posts including the extremely helpful Checklist and Links pages.
The Knot started a Facebook Page for “Helping Brides In The Wake Of Sandy”; Wedding Officiants and other wedding vendors may find it useful as well.
Here’s one of the news stories I saw on TV about weddings in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
And here's another story on the same topic from the NJ Star Ledger...
