About A Blessing From Above Ceremonies & Services

" My heart is ever at your service. " ~ William Shakespeare

Hello couples! I am Rev. Launa Byrd. Since my Ordination in 2008 when I began joining couples in Matrimony, I committed my heart & have embraced all who have genuinely come forward to me, regardless of belief, background, family situation, or lifestyle. No couple has ever been turned away. I sincerely believe that the key elements of a successful marriage go far beyond what a couple may look like together, what they believe in, or how they live. It is the daily practice of open communication, mutual honesty, good listening, and supportive friendship with your spouse that makes a successful marriage. Life can be challenging enough with career, family, finances, and more. That committed friendship can help a couple weather the toughest of storms TOGETHER! My hope is that all couples find that in their union together, and that I can begin that journey for them on their wedding day!  

Your Wedding Day is the most blessed of days! I design it your way. Ordained through the Church of Christ & Certified by the Commonwealth of Virginia, I design ceremonies according to your beliefs. Simple and Short, or Romantically designed with Detail to express your deeper feelings. I personally sit and meet with ALL couples. For those from Out of Town, SKYPE is the free video chat where we can meet face to face.

Sand or Rose ceremonies, Celtic Hand Fasting, and even a sentimental Family Promise for children of blended families, can all be part of your Wedding Ceremony experience. My Designer Package can offer these and so much more, and INCLUDES your Rehearsal at no extra charge. All venues & locations welcome! I am available for travel throughout the Southside and Peninsula Area of Hampton Roads. I do not require Premarital Counseling. FREE consultation available.

I would also like to extend an invitation to you to watch a one minute video below, featuring my Ceremony Services at the esteemed OceanAire Luxury Resort in Virginia Beach! The resort chose to feature the Wedding Services of my husband and I in their promotional advertising.

My husband is a professional Wedding Dj of 25 years, and often partners with me at many of the receptions following ceremonies I perform. Not everyone needs both our services, but for those that do, I like to offer only the best recommendations! His Performance Video can be seen below. Like with me, you'll see his heart & soul is always in his work. Together, we have an all-inclusive package for many of our clients detailed under Special Deals here who do need both services! Feel free to ask about this.

 

I sincerely look forward to meeting you!

Blessings,

Rev. Launa

Rev. Launa was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She made us feel at ease during our initial consultation and decisions on our ceremony. Rev. Launa made sure to incorporate what we wanted throughout the ceremony including our unity tree ceremony as well as an original poem reading by the best man. She was very outgoing and all of our guests enjoyed her as our officiant. We would highly recommend Rev. Launa's services. Thank you!

Launa was amazing! When we met to create our own personal ceremony, she had books and passages to pick samples from. I found a twist on the oathing stone, and she got as excited about it as I was and we made sure it was in the ceremony. If you give her and idea, she will figure out how to incorporate it. Launa found an old Nordic tradition with swords that we worked into the wedding, but last minute were not able to use, so she just skipped that passage and nobody noticed. I have really bad anxiety and everybody knew this before hand. I did really good all day until I got up to the alter. My fight or flight kicked in and I almost had a panic attack. She recognized this and paused until it passed. If she hadn't, I would have been throwing up in the bushes. I would highly recommend Rev Launa to anybody, but you should also hire her husband Patrick as your Dj. He did the music for the ceremony and reception. Everything went so smooth and they work so well together it was amazing.
