Going to the Chaplain WEDDINGS WITH STYLE AND GRACE

“As an ordained chaplain and married woman of 35 years, my desire is to help every couple not only with the ceremony, but in their journey during the months before they get to the altar, guiding them to build an emotional and spiritual foundation for a lifetime.” -Tara Dorroh
