Hi! I'm Ticia! First I want to thank you for stopping by Weddings by Tici!!
Officiating weddings is more than legally joining two people, it's an invitation to a life long journey of love and adventure. As a mother, wife, daughter and friend, I have been blessed to be on many life journeys that I treasure deeply. These experiences have provided me with an appreciation for love that I share with all of the couples I meet.
Growing up in the Bronx, I never imagined enjoying life without the sounds and excitement of city life. However I have a new found appreciation for the pace of life in Virginia. Plus its a hop, skip and highway ride away from Yankee games and all of the other comforts of home! My traveling adventures aren’t limited to just Virginia and New York. I have had the opportunity to travel throughout the country and internationally.
Other than traveling, I enjoy encouraging those around me to grow and develop new skills whether it be personally or professionally. Which is exactly how my journey into officiating began! One of my dearest friends took me by surprise when she asked me not to be her matron of honor but to be the officiant for her services. She has had a first row seat for ALL of my journeys and believed that I had come to a place spiritually to handle the role. Well after much prayer and meditation, I became ordained and began writing my first ceremony!
Officiating weddings brings me such joy! Seeing the nervous optimism on couples’ faces takes me back to when I got married. I clearly remember the fear, excitement and butterflies of a new marriage however, after 20 years of marriage I am very familiar with the work required to build a sustaining marriage. So I use my time with my couples to encourage them to remember the feelings that brought them to their wedding day and the joy of the day to help get through those challenging moments.
Well I hope I that provided you with some insight about me and the ceremonies I preform. If you are interested in scheduling a consultation, please fill out the contact form and I will be sure to follow up!!!
