In 2016, a dear friend got engaged. I expressed that I often see couples become overly preoccupied with their reception, thus missing the greatest opportunity of their wedding day -- to unite the entire wedding by sharing their love story. That conversation ultimately led me to become their wedding officiant and ignited a new passion in my life.
Since then, I furthered my craft by partnering with my husband to design + co-facilitate our LoveLens Workshop.
This past year, we celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary (15 years together) with a 'LoveFest' - bringing together the people who brought love into our lives and therefore strengthening our marriage.
We are so excited that you're interested in our work + look forward to getting to know you better. Until then, here's some more about us.
"I love love!"
Hi there! I'm MaryBeth Hyland, your ordained wedding officiant and founder of LoveLens. Officiating weddings and facilitating our workshop is hands down, my most favorite "work" in the world.
The process of getting to know my couples is always a beautiful journey and a true honor in my life.
During the day, I am the founder of SparkVision and have molded the core components of my Values + Storytelling expertise to design our workshop + craft wedding ceremonies.
My dream space is to support more couples in choosing love + living intentionally in their values.
"I live my values."
Hey, I'm James Hyland a sales director, angel investor, exponential technology enthusiast and co-facilitator of the LoveLens Couples Workshop.
I grew up under traditional social norms including the jock mindset that males don't talk about their feelings. Through dedication to change, I have realized the importance of living within your values and how they strengthen a partnership.
This wasn't me a few years ago, but after doing the work together, I know we have a better life as a result.
I am grateful to share my experience to help others.
