Couples often have a difficult time locating a minister for their wedding if they are not members of a church congregation. A couple may find that their pastor is not available, or unable, to officiate at their wedding at the time and place of their choosing. The couple may not be active members of a congregation. The couple may find that their extended family's diverse religious backgrounds requires a neutral minister. Or they may find that a church wedding is not available within their denomination because of a previous marriage.
I work with a couple to plan a ceremony that is expressive of their beliefs. The bride and groom have planned every detail of their wedding event and I believe they should have the same opportunity regarding the ceremony itself. I officiate at the type of ceremony desired by the couple whether it's a civil or religious ceremony - whether it's denomination specific, non-denominational, inter-denominational or inter-faith.
"Thank you so much for everything you did for us prior to and during our wedding ceremony. (We) feel so blessed that we were able to meet someone like you in such a short amount of time and really find a deeper connection. In addition, many people at the wedding commented on how wonderful the service was and how impressed they were with your delivery of the ceremony. Nothing could have made the ceremony more special to us - it was perfect." TB & ZD
"Thank you for making it (the ceremony) just right for us. Everyone was touched when you mentioned all the relatives that could not make it. God bless you for the perfect wedding." DV & AG
"Words can't describe how thrilled we were to have you officiate our daughter's wedding ceremony. We have had compliment after compliment in regards to your part of the ceremony." PE
