Counsel for Couples

Counsel: Single session

Rings are much like the bookends of the wedding journey getting an engagement ring marks the beginning of the adventure, and placing the rings on your hands concludes that the marriage is completed. They are powerful symbols that then live with you as ongoing reminders of your love and commitment. They hold so much meaning and significance for us, so why does shopping for one not feel very magical?

Kate Ellen has helped hundreds of clients navigate this journey leading with their hearts, creating the space for their values, meaning, and love to come through and be held.

In counsel sessions, you will walk though the Holistic Design Method to get to those deeper more intimate layers; you and your beloved will go on a transformational journey of self-discovery, creativity and connection. The investment you make at this stage may alter your entire wedding journey as you get crystal clear on your intentions and shared values, making way to collaborate on a dream ceremony that is a true reflection of who you are as a couple. 

Open to couples who are designing a ring with the wovekind studio, and for folks who would like counsel on creating ceremony for an heirloom or ring purchased elsewhere.

Purchase a single session to get counsel on wherever you're at in your process, Kate Ellen will dive in with you to provide you a sounding board for your personal reflections and discoveries as you embark on wovekind Ceremonial Jewelry or Heirloom Redesign project, helping to se the tone for your entire wedding journey.

Single Sessions are amazing for taking your E-Course learning to the next level and get the personalized care to your project that will help you move forward with confidence.

This package is for folks who would rather do the Holistic Design Method in a private 1:1 setting with direct guidance from Kate Ellen, rather than take the self-guided E-Course.
