I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of wedding coaching. I’ve been a life coach for the past 5 years and when I decided to start offering wedding coaching, after planning my own, I hadn’t heard of a “wedding coach” either. I did some research and found out that there aren’t many coaches offering couples this type of support. Once I launched this part of my business, it became clear that there truly is a need, especially from people who told me they wished they’d known about wedding coaching when they were planning their own weddings. So, if you’re in the midst of planning your own wedding celebration, this might be just the thing you’re needing!
Based on my husband and I’s experience creating our deeply personal and non-traditional celebration, and listening to the stories of friends and clients, my approach to wedding coaching is grounded in the following philosophy:
I believe that no one can tell your love story quite like the two of you.
As a wedding coach I work with couples who want a different kind of wedding – one that breaks the mold and speaks to who they are, but are overwhelmed and unclear where to start. Through thoughtful questions, conversations and coaching I help couples create their vision of a truly authentic, intentional and meaningful celebration of love.
Each relationship and marriage is unique, and I believe your wedding should be too. I’m here to make sure each couple’s wedding celebration weaves in who they are and what their wedding symbolizes to them, so that on their wedding day, they feel grounded, engaged and fully present.
I have a special place in my heart for wedding ceremonies. So often the ceremony is treated as something to “get over with” and this feels like such a missed opportunity. After all, the reason you have gathered with your loved ones is in fact, to get married, isn’t it? The reason this happens is because when you are anticipating going through the motions of a wedding script you didn’t create, (and don’t necessarily resonate with), it feels inauthentic and it’s only natural to disconnect. I get it, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
“Thank you, thank you, thank so much for everything you did for us and our ceremony! I’ve never heard of anyone getting compliments on their ceremony but we sure did, a lot. And that is thanks to you. It was such a great day!” – Cameron (groom)
I’m all about breaking, bending and rewriting the “rules”. I help couples thoughtfully decide which traditions they want to keep, reimagine or toss out altogether. There are no “shoulds” or “half-tos” in my wedding coaching philosophy.
I’m also here to work with officiants to be sure they understand and will honor your vision. It’s a personal mission of mine to prevent officiants from “going rogue”. 😉
Our discussions are in no way confined to the ceremony. We will also talk about ways to make your rehearsal/ welcome party and receptions (should you choose to have them), SO YOU. We will talk about creative ways to have each detail that matters most, speak to your values, and who you are as a couple. No idea of too crazy or weird to consider, in fact, I encourage the couples I work with to “go there”, try each idea on and see how it feels, and eventually, you’ll both land on what’s “right” for you.
I want you to know that while carving your own path is no easy task, I’m here to guide you through the process, navigate challenges that may arise with loved ones, get your creative ideas flowing, and help you bring your vision into focus and if requested, connect you with industry pros who can Make. It. Happen.
I promise, making your wedding your own will be a uniquely gratifying experience, and one you won’t regret.
“Having Caitlin on our side helped keep the focus on what mattered to us; getting married and making vows, ceremony and reception all our own. We wanted to put thought and meaning and intention into how we promised the rest of our lives to each other and I’m not sure we could have come up with something so ‘us’ without Caitlin. Caitlin listened carefully, reflected our thoughts back to us and added her unique perspective in an invaluable manner. I honestly don’t know if we would have had the courage to go through with some of the more nontraditional aspects of our ceremony without her support, feedback and know-how.” – Laura (bride)

Hi, I’m Caitlin Bosshart, life coach and self-proclaimed off-beat, non-traditional bride.
When I began my own journey of creating our vision of an authentic Celebration of Love (aka our wedding), I often felt overwhelmed by the expectations and pressures to uphold age-old wedding traditions that just didn’t fit who we are as a couple. Determined to be true to ourselves, I (with my future husband’s participation and full support) resolutely set out to create a celebration that spoke to our identities, our relationship, and what this public celebration meant to us.
It was at times, a grueling, and tearful process. I often second guessed our decisions, struggled to explain our vision to others, and found myself periodically pulled off-course by well-meaning advice.
I learned so much from my experience and do not regret a single choice that made our celebration “Ours”. Once our day was said and done, I realized I have so much knowledge, guidance, and insight to give to others, to not only make their process of creating a vision for their celebration, more intentional, fun, but also ( I hope ) a bit easier.
I’m so looking forward to being your guide and endlessly supporting Your vision. To schedule your free Discovery call and see if wedding coaching is a good fit for you, email me at LifeCoaching@caitlinbosshart.com !
Cheers to you both, and huge heart-felt Congratulations!
