Welcome to my website! Thrilled to be awarded "Top Officiant" status by the nationally acclaimed wedding website "WeddingWire"
2015 UPDATE: I was just given the prestigious "100" award from WeddingWire for receiving OVER 100 REVIEWS from my wedding couples!
Love is in the air! No doubt the reason you've landed on my website is that you're ready to begin planning your wedding ceremony. There's a lot to know and it's my goal to make this process easy and FUN!
Over the past many years I've received recognition, awards and wonderful reviews for my ceremonies. I absolutely love what I do! Unlike other ministers and wedding officiants I typically only perform ONE wedding on a given wedding day... so my couples don't need to worry about me leaving if there's any delay.
Virtually, there are dozens of types of ceremonies. I am happy to perform secular (non-religious), nondenominational, denominational, orthodox and cultural ceremonies for my couples. It's important to me that the ceremony be exactly as the wedding couple wishes.
Each couple is unique. Some have big families and need to have considerations for their families others are small and intimate. It's my joy to help you figure out what ceremony features fit you best.
The reason my weddings are so heartily complimented is due in large part to the fact that I get to know my couples and their participation in the planning gives these weddings a very special, personal feel.
No matter the venue (church, boat, farm, restaurant, club, home or other location) the ceremony is the highlight of the day and sets the tone for the rest of the day's celebration.
My couples meet with me privately (usually via Skype, FaceTime or other video chat medium), regardless of their location in or out of the country, for planning meetings.
I provide ALL the planning materials in PDF format for choosing each ceremonial element. I also provide additional helpful guides for marriage license applications and other useful wedding resources. Unless a rehearsal coordinator is hired I typically coordinate the rehearsal as well. No one wants their wedding to look like a "hot mess" or wants their families confused about what's happen on their big day!
The fee I quote you will include everything from planning meetings, guides, resources, rehearsal, rehearsal coordination, travel/overnight accommodations if required, performance of the ceremony and filing of the license after the ceremony.
Because of my experience I'm also able to provide couple's coaching if the couple requests. Wedding planning can be very stressful and it's my goal to make this time as stress-free as possible!
Additionally I provide a number of other ministry related services such as VOW RENEWALS for anniversary couples, BAPTISMS and Baby Welcoming ceremonies for new parents, FUNERALS / Memorial Services and hospital and hospice visits as time allows.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Remember that when you hand over your marriage license on the day of your wedding to whatever officiant you choose... it has vital information on it such as your names, your SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS, your birth dates, birth location and your mothers' maiden names! It's important you choose your officiant wisely!
When you contact me, please include your wedding date, the location and venue along with your email and cell phone numbers. Thanks!
Isn't LOVE wonderful?!
