What is “Convalidation” in the Roman Catholic Church?
by Reverend Cheryl D. Cavalconte, MA of WeddingMinistersRI.com
I have gotten many questions from couples who wish to be married outdoors, at their hall, or even in a quick civil ceremony and then receive the Sacrement of Marriage from the Roman Catholic Church. I knew the word was “convalidation” but didn’t have an answer to many of the questions that my couples were asking as there were really no articles on the subject. This article is here with many thanks to it’s author, Rev. Cheryl Cavalconte who serves Rhode Island and New England.

A Solo Guitarist For Your Special Day!
by Guitarist Shan Kenner
Live music has an energy all it’s own that really creates mood and atmosphere. I must admit I bothered Shan for months, asking for some articles, or even just one, so I could get couples to his website to hear the amazing samples he has there. But there is nothing like having people who are passionate about what they do involved in making your day shine.
