*** MARRIAGE LICENSES AVAILABLE. SMALL CEREMONIES PERMITTED ***
We live in a difficult time right now. Social Distancing and Precautions are all around us, which makes it a challenge for couples who set their hearts on a Spring Wedding in 2020. For Couples who want to gather with 5 or less participants, and pursue a small wedding ceremony at an open location, I am here to serve. Even if only through live video where I can view you and Officiate the Ceremony via WebCam, the Commonwealth of Virginia will allow this during this time as a legal recognition of your Marriage. I will also help in providing you the means to secure your Marriage License.

Professional with a Joyful soul!
Patrick was and is one of the happiest, go with the flow, kind of guys we met. We were married right on the beach in VA. Patrick is highly professional but not to serious as to not have a sense of humor! He went over and beyond to get last minute items for commuion (which we forgot). A happy spirit, Rev. Byrd will work with you make your elopement and/or marriage a memorable one! He even suggested resturants and hotels in the area if we wished to go. I would highly recommend Rev. Patrick Byrd to you and yours. K.J.V.Sent on 05/07/2020

Reverend Patrick was a phenomenal officiant for our wedding. He reassured us that everything was going to go well before the day and definitely delivered. He knew the right words to say to start our union and involve our guests.Sent on 09/08/2020

Rev. Launa Byrd from "A Blessing from Above Ceremonies and Services" has always been extremely organized and friendly with us and more importantly her clients. We enjoy working with her on several occasions and would recommend her company to anyone looking for an awesome officiant!

They take the time to listen and tailor your wedding ceremony to reflect your personalities so that all your guests will remember your vows. We consider ourselves to be extremely lucky because Launa & Patrick are not only "wedding industry" acquaintances, Custom Photography also photographed their wedding with a friendship of many, many years.
