At Southland we are interested in building strong marriages, so we require that all couples, either getting married in our chapel or using a Southland minister off-site, complete the pre marriage class we offer.
The Wedding Coordinator’s job is to help guide, provide advice and support you with your wedding planning. The coordinator will communicate with your officiant, create a timeline, direct the rehearsal and keep everything on track for your wedding day.
The Premarriage Class is $100.00 per couple and includes a pre-marriage assessment.
