Welcome to my website!
Thrilled to be awarded "Top Officiant" status by the nationally acclaimed wedding website "WeddingWire" (tm)
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. It's my joy to help you figure out what ceremony features fit you best and to prepare you for the big day. Not only that, but our planning meetings will review a number of things couples need to consider on the "day of" so that they, their attendants, their venue and their family members are prepared.
No matter the venue (church, boat, farm, restaurant, club, home, civic center, beach, park, theater or other location) the ceremony is the highlight of the day and truly sets the tone for the rest of the day's celebration. (I do not do bungee-jumping, sky-diving, rock climbing or scuba ceremonies!!! LOL)
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.
Couple's coaching is also available upon request. Wedding planning and blending families and their expectations can be very stressful so we concentrate on ways 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?!
