About Blessings from Above

Hello couples! I am Rev. Patrick 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 provide ceremonies according to your beliefs. Simple and Short, and meaningful. 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 am a professional Wedding Dj of 25 years, 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! You'll see my heart & soul is always in my work. I 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. Patrick

    Launa officiated my daughters wedding, she was amazing. Everything was set up for her vows exactly as she asked. Launa asked questions and suggestions to make the day perfect. She performed a unity ceremony with sand to signify the blending of the two families. She helped calm the bride down during all the rain and made it a perfect day.

    We used her for our wedding on June 30th. She is absolutely the best! So nice, thoughtful, and willing to help with whatever you need! She works with couples one on one in order to understand and create the perfect ceremony. I would recommend her to any and everyone!! :) Thank you for making our day perfect!!
