About The Marriage You Want

Hi. My name is Thomas Billings. I am a wedding officiant, premarital counselor, and couples coach.

Emotional intelligence is my expertise, and I am fascinated with the relational dynamics that make up healthy couples, parents, and families. I help people work with themselves and others, in their unique context. Additionally, I am a Certified Gottman Educator, and Certified Birkman Professional.

I'm passionate about weddings because I'm a minister at heart. I have a heart for ministering to people in their big and small life moments. I've done over a hundred weddings and got started in the wedding business because I began my career working for churches as a pastor and minister.

Since then, I've become a Business Coach. Some of the coaching methods and behavioral assessments I've become an expert in are used by companies like Google, MailChimp, Chevron, and others, and are also highly applicable to couples. That's what makes my wedding business unique.

Your Wedding -- A completely personalized ceremony for you as a unique couple.

Premarital Counseling & Couples Coaching -- An in-depth exploration of yourselves and the relational dynamics between you. You will learn to more fully appreciate and understand why you each act and react differently in various situations, and to take the emotion out of issues and create an opportunity to more objectively and constructively discuss similarities and differences.

    Thomas was absolutely great and completely flexible. He helped us with every question and when I had weird requests like "we're going to play rock, paper, scissors to see who goes first on our personal vows" (we were both nervous), "can we do a selfie at the end" or "can I have my guests sign my wedding certificate", he answered them all. We were able to use his script and completely personalize it to our style. My husband stated after we decided to pursue Thomas for our ceremony that he would never pose and kiss him...

    Thomas only asked once in front of our photographer and my husband did not hesitate. Thomas is really great!! And we both highly recommend him.

    I am SO happy my husband found Thomas to officiant our wedding. He did a truly fantastic job during our ceremony, and was the perfect combination of calming, light-hearted, sincere and professional.
    We also took premarital counseling through Thomas before hand, which I would highly recommend!
    I definitely will be recommended Thomas to family and friends in the future!

    Thomas did a perfect job officiating our wedding ceremony. My HUSBAND :) and I both knew only after a minute after meeting Thomas that we would want him to officiate our vows. He eludes a sincerity and that transfers onto his speaking which made our ceremony very honest and sincere. He also was able to lighten our nerves during the ceremony which we appreciated. Out guests enjoyed the ceremony as well; they chuckled here and there, which was awesome and made it really fun and enjoyable for my husband and I to enjoy our ceremony!! We both highly recommend his professional services.
