He requests time to meet and get to know couples who are planning a marriage before conducting the wedding service.
“You can’t box God up in religion. You can’t box Jesus up in Christianity. You can’t box church up in a building. You can’t box faith up in a set of beliefs. You can’t box grace up in conditions. The Kingdom of God isn’t boxed up in our churches. Imagine church without pulpits or pews, creeds or confessionals-no membership, plate-passing, pledges, vestments, heavenly choirs, or altar calls. Without buildings to maintain or staff to sustain, the church no longer is seen as a private club or guilt-trip haven to heaven. Instead, its focus is on caring and sharing, living here-and-now, not in the hereafter. Rather than part of our worldly empires, the church has become their antithesis. From guts to glory, the church begets reform.” – My Name Is Heretic: Reforming the Church, from Guts to Glory (Paperback – November 21, 2015 by Bruce H. Joffe)

Capturing real life as it unfolds…
Kelly Avenson says it best, “I love faces and the stories behind them. Photography allows me to tell a story, be it the story of a brand new baby, a high school graduate, a couple in love or a time spent on the beach playing in the sand with your kids. Everyone’s story is so unique and I am one fortunate woman to be able to capture that on film for you to treasure and share with those you love. To wake up and give the gift of smiles is truly amazing!”
