Why Rev. Riana & Ceremonies by the Sea?

Civil Unions and marriages for Gay and Lesbian partners are still not available in Florida, however, I can perform a ring exchange and Commitment of Love Ceremony (does not require a license, and is only symbolic, not a legal ceremony).

Why Consider Professional Counseling or Couples Coaching before you Marry your Partner?

These topics include: finances, children, blending of families in your new life-style, prior spousal issues, coming-out to parents, addictions, religious differences, intimacy and sexual preferences or differences to name a few.
