Welcome to my website!
+ Reverend Christine
I've made it to #1 and have been awarded "Top Officiant" status by the acclaimed PREMIER 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 start planning your wedding ceremony. There's a lot to know and it's my goal to make this process easy and FUN! As countless couples and their families have told me, the CEREMONY sets the tone for the whole day!
Over the past many years I've received awards and wonderful reviews for my ceremonies but NOTHING beats the hugs after the ceremony from my brides and grooms and their parents!!! I absolutely love what I do! Unlike other 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.
My ceremonies are heartily complimented due in large part to "my terrific couples". Their participation in the planning gives their weddings a very special, personal feel - one that is so very appreciated by their parents and guests, too.
If you feel that the ceremony is the most important element of your day... then I may be the officiant for you! If you just want a quickie ceremony that's not personalized, I'm definitely not the officiant for you!
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. I'll help you every step of the way!!!
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?!
IMPORTANT NOTE: wedding ceremonies officiated by "friends" or "family members" or unskilled officiants often look and feel AWKWARD and disorganized, not to mention that these types are MORE likely to bail out at the last minute leaving the couple frantically trying to find an officiant.
Most have NO idea how to coordinate rehearsals, or provide professional materials for wedding selections or even know how to legally file a license!!!
Sadly, my associates and I get quite a few panicky calls - and typically we are already booked!!! That's NOT the way to set the tone for YOUR wedding!!!
TYPES OF WEDDINGS & CEREMONIES THAT I DO NOT PERFORM:
Bungee jumping, Sky Diving, Scuba Diving, Naturalist/Nude, Wing Walking, Paragliding / Para-Sailing, Hot air Ballooning, Coal Walking... :) You get the picture!!!
