Sunday was the big day for wedding vendors because the biggest wedding show in New Mexico was held at Isleta Resort through the NM Wedding Expo by Legacy Media! It was fantastic with several hundred brides and grooms and friends present. My own ABUNDANT BLESSINGS WEDDING OFFICIANT had a number of couples and guests come up and sign up for more information, and I will be contacting them within the week. But I also had a drawing for a $20.00 gift certificate toward a manicure or pedicure. Congratulations to Monica J. and her fiance James who won the prize. It was a great time and all the professionals were there, and a wonderful opportunity to re-unite with people I haven't seen in months, or the last wedding!
Hi. I'm Bishop Dave Doyle, or "Fr. Dave," as a lot of people call me, the premier New Mexico wedding officiant for interfaith and Catholic weddings. I started Abundant Blessings Wedding Officiant after a buddy asked me to sub in a wedding he couldn't make; this was in the old Gruet Winery "chapel" before they did away with it. In my parish (Christ the King Old Catholic Church) I married couples as their pastor, and even followed up with Baptisms. In time more and more couples asked me to officiate at their weddings because they heard about me from friends or vendors I worked with. Many couples wanted an outdoor Catholic wedding, and here in New Mexico we are greatly blessed with beautiful weather and scenery. Finally I took the advice of many wedding professionals I worked with and started Abundant Blessings Wedding Officiant, and have been blessed with meeting many couples as they prepare for their special day. I am honored and privileged to be a part of their wedding preparation.
