Episode 94: Dartboards & Wedding Dogs (with Christopher Shelley)


Christopher Shelley, professional officiant and author of The Best Ceremony Ever, joins the gals to talk about weddings!

He tells us all about his wedding (which involved dartboards!), why he became an officiant, and how he has helped over 300 couples create ceremonies that are personal and not boring!

We also tackled some listeners’ submitted confessionals. Topics include: trying to please a bride with expensive taste, a groom too shy for a videographer, and sneaky ways to include your puppy on your wedding day…even though the venue says NO PETS ALLOWED!

If you like creative ceremonies or wedding day doggy capers, this episode is for you!
