My fiancé and I come from different religious backgrounds and we wanted our wedding ceremony to reflect both of us. We came across Father Ross in a Google search when I typed in Catholic officiants in Virginia. I clicked on the link and started to read all of the reviews and about Father Ross himself. After a little bit of reading I decided to reach out. After our fist Skype meeting with Father Ross, we knew we wanted him to lead our ceremony for our wedding. There was something about his calming voice, his life experiences and love of travel that really clicked with us. We began the journey to create a ceremony that reflected the both of us, and with Father Ross’s help we were able to have the perfect wedding ceremony. Throughout the whole planning process Fr. Ross was always there to lend advice. He assisted us in talking about subjects we didn’t even know we had differences on through his pre-marital counseling and he offered advice on what life will be like after marriage. One thing that I still think about even after our wedding, is something Father Ross said to Nicholas and I, he said “in the movies, all you see is the happy ending with the bride and groom kissing, what they don’t tell the audience is that this isn’t the “ending”, but rather the “start” of your life together and all that awaits. We have both learned so much from Fr. Ross during the planning process and it has strengthened our relationship with one another. I highly suggest Fr. Ross if you and your fiancé are from different background or the same, as Fr. Ross will help you craft the perfect ceremony for the two of you. I think the pre-marital counseling exercises are such a good idea, as you learn so much more about each other. Throughout this whole process, it was so reassuring to know that Nicholas and I could always email or call Fr. Ross if we were having any questions or just needed someone to talk to. – Melissa and Nicholas (Catholic-Presbyterian outdoor outdoor wedding ceremony), from Alexandria, VA Wedding Ceremony Venue: The Mill at Fine Creek, North Powhatan, VA
