Your Wedding Day….the most blessed of days! Memorably designed your way! I am Rev. Launa Byrd. Ordained through the Church of Christ & Certified by the Commonwealth of Virginia, I design non-denominational ceremonies according to your beliefs. Simple and Short, or Romantically designed with Detail to express your deeper feelings. I personally sit and meet with ALL couples. For those from Out of Town, SKYPE is the free video chat program we can use to meet and chat.



Sand or Rose ceremonies, Children's Blessings, and Butterfly Releases can all be part of your day. I do perform Commitment Ceremonies as well. All locations welcome! I am available for travel throughout the Tidewater, Southside, and Peninsula Area of Hampton Roads. FREE consultation available.



I would also like to extend an invitation to you to watch a one minute video of my services at the esteemed OceanAire Luxury Resort in Virginia Beach! The resort chose to feature the Wedding Services of my husband and I in their promotional advertising. My husband serves as a Professional DJ at many of the receptions following ceremonies I perform. Together, we have an all-inclusive package for many of our clients! Feel free to ask about this! I look forward to meeting you!

On my daughters most spectacular day I could not find a better officiant than Launa Byrd. She is sensitive to your my daughter and her husbands needs, she has compassion for special circumstances and situations that are unique to your own personal wedding needs. Launa even goes above and beyond her job a lot of times. I would not only highly recommend her, but I would even go as far to say that she is the BEST in the business. Tailoring a seremon special for each and every wedding she officiated. Thank you Launa for all you did in making this a moment I will never forget as a mother.

Reverend Launa is wonderful. She is not only very professional, but she is personable as well. I felt very comfortable with her from the moment we spoke on the phone. She was attentive and very genuine. I knew she would handle our small ceremony with care. We did not have a rehearsal prior to our ceremony. However, no one could tell because Reverend Launa made sure we knew exactly what to do by providing us with an overall plan. She guided us so well on our special day! We appreciate her services and I think she would be great for anyone considering a wedding in the Virginia Beach area.

Launa was to our rescue! Our officiant we originally had scheduled had an emergency and was unable to accommodate us. I was calling all around to find someone and after so many disappointing calls, we get a call from Launa. When she called we spoke on the phone for a good hour just talking, getting to know one another and what we were looking for. She was able to fit us into her schedule and felt like it was just meant to be. She is very professional and friendly. She asked us exactly what we were wanting, what we envisioned for our big day and she made that happened. She even came early to talk with me before the ceremony to make sure we had everything covered. The only downfall we had was that we had planned to do a wood burning ceremony, like some people would do the tying of the knot and etc. and we completely missed it in the ceremony. I think Launa and I both forgot to go over that when we met before the ceremony. In the rush of the big day I completely forgot about it until we were getting ready to do pictures and my dad came up to me and asked what to do with the fire that was still lit outside. I thought I just had a heart attack because we completely forgot about it! At first I was so upset but we ended up making it work. After pictures we had everyone go back outside so we could do the wood burning and it ended up being a great transition from cocktail hour to the reception. But as far as Launa she was super supportive and made us feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend her for anyone! She will make sure your ceremony is perfect. We can't thank you enough Launa for everything!

Greetings, we had our wedding this past June in the Virginia Beach area. If you are looking for a wonderful power couple willing to do anything to make your day special without worry or stress than I highly recommend the Byrd family. Patrick did a wonderful job delivering our wedding vows and Launa was very patient helping us write our vows. They are a wonderful group of people and I would no doubt recommend them to anyone I know in the Virginia Beach area!

Launa was amazing and helped us customize or ceremony to what we wanted. And if you are looking for a D.J. and host I would recommend her husband Patrick. They worked together and took all the guess work out of this for us. They had everything running and scheduled as if it was on auto pilot which takes a lot of the stress out of the day and it allows you to actually enjoy the day.

Rev. Launa was awesome. I called a few days before my wedding in a panic about not having someone to marry us because our person backed out and she calmed me down, went over the packages, was very flexible and understanding. Just awesome. I got married on Halloween, a holiday. The ceremony was simple and sweet, and short. She was very understanding and personable. I have asked her to do a child's blessing for my daughter. I was more than happy with the services.

We had an intimate ceremony of 15 at my parents' house in Virginia Beach. We were hoping to find a professional venue but due to budget constraints we were unable to but Reverend Byrd was frequently in touch and flexible, offering to meet us at a new location if we found one. She offered two styles of robes so that I could choose which coordinated better with our colors and she explained all the paperwork and the process of obtaining the marriage license to us. We had a wonderful experience with Blessings from Above and I would recommend them to anyone getting married in the Virginia Beach area.

Rev. Launa was referred to me by a third party. And from start to finish she kept in contact with me to make sure we had the best possible service. It was a simple ceremony on somewhat short notice and went off without a hitch. I would refer her to anyone who needed an officiant for a wedding. She made everything easy and was will inning to go the extra mile to make sure everything was great on our special day.
