My name is Tirzah. I offer Wedding Coaching, Premarital Coaching, and Officiating services. I am a Queer-Owned business and started NearlyWed Coaching after spending a decade as a Licensed Social Worker. After navigating the wedding industry when my wife and I were getting married in 2019, we experienced firsthand that not all vendors are inclusive and aware of how to make Queer couples feel seen and safe. I started NearlyWed Coaching to change how couples are getting married by providing a support system that focuses on the emotional side of the wedding planning process and affirms and celebrates couples of all identities!
NearlyWed Coaching Services
Wedding Coaching: Wedding Coaching is an unbiased support system to help you navigate the wedding planning process, with a special focus on the stress, anxiety, and emotional dynamics that often show up throughout the process. Let’s keep it real..wedding planning can be really hard (there can be a lot of expectations, pressures, and external opinions). I am here to help you navigate this journey while being true to yourself. Together we will create a wedding that is truly what you want and authentic to who you are as a couple.
Premarital Coaching: Are you looking for an unbiased support system to help you strengthen certain areas of your relationship? I use a strengths-based approach to help you LEVEL-UP your relationship and become more connected as you enter into marriage. Our sessions are guided by where you are at and where you would like to be. I will help you gain useful tools to improve your communication and connection.
Officiating: In-person officiating service for your small wedding or elopement includes a 60-minute collaborative session to create your ceremony before your wedding day. I believe in the importance of getting to know you as a couple and what makes your relationship and love unlike any other. We will work together in collaboration to create an intentional ceremony that is aligned with your belief system and is authentic to who you are as a couple. Your ceremony is the heartbeat of your wedding and who you choose as your officiant is an important decision. I offer a free discovery so we can connect and you can see if I am the right fit. I would be honored to be by your side as you cross the threshold from Nearlyweds to Newlyweds!
I can’t wait to hear from you!

Tirzah’s wedding coaching helped my wife and I to plan the authentic wedding of our dreams. As a couple, we had vastly different ideas of how we wanted our wedding to look. Finding a middle ground for this huge event in our lives, proved to be difficult. Tirzah was able to talk us through some of the hardest decisions for our wedding, and help both of us compromise and meet each other in the middle. She took the time to listen to us, and truly understand where both of us were coming from. She got to the core of each of us, and what our values and beliefs are as individuals, and how that influenced what we wanted in a wedding. She helped us take both of our ideas and turn them into a wedding that celebrated both of us as individuals and as a couple. Tirzah helped us strengthen the dynamics of our relationship during one of the most difficult decision making processes that we had gone through as a couple. As a multiracial queer couple who come from different cultures and backgrounds, it was important for us to find vendors who can understand our unique experience. Tirzah truly saw us, understood us, and celebrated us and our relationship. We loved working with Tirzah, and highly recommend her to every couple who is planning a wedding. She helped us and our relationship in every step of wedding planning, so that when we walked down the aisle we were more confident and strong as a couple than ever before.

My fiancé and I made a last minute decision to elope in beautiful Colorado. We felt like trying to find someone that is excepting of our sexuality was going to be hard, until we found Tirzah! We first contacted her seriously 2 to 3 weeks before our wedding date. We thought it was going to be hard to piece everything together in such short notice but Tirzah made it so so easy and helped us every step of the way.
Thank you again, Tirzah, for making our day so special in every way.
Sending love and good vibes,
Payton & Shayleigh Armstrong
