IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! AS OF 10/7/16 WE ARE NO LONGER BOOKING CLIENTS FOR WEDDINGS ONLY! ALL WEDDING PACKAGES INCLUDE OUR PRE-MARRIAGE COACHING PROGRAM. WE HAVE CHOSEN TO DO THIS BECAUSE WE BELIEVE SO DEEPLY IN MARRIAGES AND WANT TO SEE EVERY COUPLE WE WORK WITH HAVE THE MOST FULFILLING MARRIAGE POSSIBLE. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING!
Hello, my name is Joe McAlpine. I am the main wedding guy here. I am a professional wedding officiant and certified marriage coach in the Milwaukee area with over 15 years of experience and I have a passion for helping couples begin their marriage journey in the most healthy and life giving way possible.
One of the reasons I do this is to help couples get started on their marriage journey in the best way possible. We are here to serve you and help you have the wedding and marriage you have always dreamed of.
Our team loves walking through the wedding planning process with couples. We always say that your wedding day is the biggest day of your life. It is the day where you will look the love of your life in the eyes and pledge your unending love and devotion to only them. Your marriage covenant is the biggest promise you will ever make to another human being.
We love weddings! We love everything about them. Our favorite part though is getting to walk through the planning and preparation of what life will look like AFTER the wedding. We are Christians by belief, BUT we work with couples from all different faith backgrounds. Our goal is to help you in your marriage, not to convince you one way or another on religion choices. You will never feel like we are trying to convince you of what we believe.
We offer so much more than just showing up on your wedding day and performing your ceremony. When you choose on of our team members as your wedding officiant you can take advantage of some of the best tools in preparing for your marriage that are available to couples today. We first schedule a no hassle meet and greet through an online web meeting. We don't pressure you or ask you to make any quick decisions. Then you can let us know in your own time if you would like to proceed.
The other big thing that we offer couples is solid pre marriage coaching. The divorce rate today is hovering around 50% Thats right... HALF of all weddings today end in divorce. I am a certified marriage and relationship coach from two different national organizations. The divorce rate among people that have taken our pre marriage program is under 5% To top it all off we make sure that it is affordable and realistic for anyone who wants to take advantage of the tools we offer. It is SO worth it!

Stop your searching right now, you will not find a better fit for your wedding! From the very beginning we felt very comfortable. The very first time we met, it felt as if we had known each other for years. Joe is the most patient, warm hearted, generous, caring, funny.... the list goes on and on, but every word is true. He was willing to work around both of our schedules, and would go the extra mile to make things go as easy and smooth as possible. Our coaching sessions were very helpful and really strengthened my relationship. It helped us create new ways to communicate, and appreciate my husband more. This guy is the real deal, I highly recommend working with Joe and FamilyConnect. Seriously, stop your searching!!!Sent on 12/14/2016

Joe was absolutely amazing to work with. When we first decided to choose Joe, we were undecided about the pre-marriage counseling sessions, but are so glad we decided to book them. It was great learning from him ways to problem solve and how to understand your partner better. Well worth the money!Sent on 10/17/2016
On the big day he was prompt and prepared and gave an incredible ceremony, start to finish. We are so thankful to have met Joe. My wife and I couldn't have been happier to have found him.
