UPDATE 2020! Mary has relocated to Toronto, Canada. You can find information about Canadian weddings at ElopeToronto.com I'm keeping this blog because I've been told it's very helpful for couples in New York! If you need a wedding officiant in New York or Toronto, email me at MaryBeaty (at) gmail (dot) com, and I'll try to help. Best wishes!

Feb 2 is St. Bride's Day

Feb 2, Groundhog Day or Candlemas, is the Feast of St. Brigid (Secondary Patron of Ireland) and Lá Feabhra - the first day of Spring. Brigit, seen here as a female smith, is called Bride in Scotland. Brigid aids any woman about to be married, and the woman is called “bride” in her honor. See more here.
