Wedding Goddess is a soulful look at the sacred ritual of marriage. Laurie Sue Brockway brings you into the world of weddings in the most beautiful, altruistic sense rather than how the machine of the wedding industry commercializes it. Laurie Sue is a minister who customizes weddings to the individual--there's no pat formula here, just two people in love coming together in the way that makes them feel most connected. This book is for those who are getting married but also for everyone who wants to open your heart and honor the committment to yourself and humanity.

Rev. Laurie Sue married my husband and I on September 5, 2001 in Central Park. I knew she was an amazing woman the first time I met her. Much of what is in this book she told my hubby and I during our pre-ceremony meeting. The wedding ceremony she performed for us was as beautiful as anything I could've imagined. We were relaxed and truly enjoyed OUR day. Laurie Sue focused on the connection between my hubby and I. It made us feel empowered and strong. Having Laurie Sue marry us cemented the already strong bond we share. This book is very important to all brides. The focus of a wedding should be on the love and commitment between the bride and groom. Stress should be at a minimum. Laurie Sue's book gives great advice on keeping the priorities straight. I highly recommend this book!

I highly recommend this book. I got married a year ago and only wished I would have read it right when I got engaged! It is a modern girls way of looking at the wonderful and sometimes stressful event. It offers ways to enjoy it and release the expectations, preconcieved ideas, wanting of perfection etc... I have since passed it on to my next friend and she enjoyed it too! This is a must read - and must read way before the event to put all the good ideas into practice!
