Post Wedding MBA
Just came back from a terrific experience: the Wedding MBA: a convention of wedding professionals from all across the country and international communities as well. From Monday through Wednesday, October 2-4 I listed to speakers, shared my experiences, and generally got lots of ideas and information to better myself as an officiant. Speakers such as Alan Berg gave insights to trends with couples and wanting unique ideas found of Pintrest... and David Tutera from the TV shows and why he gave up his TV show to re-establish his professional business. The two things that kept coming across was to be authentic..I am who I am and I am good at what I do...and to listen to couples...what are they saying in their words as well as body language. And what are they NOT saying?!
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.
