"I believe a wedding should speak movingly to the emotional and spiritual needs of the modern couple. We will work together to make your ceremony personally and spiritually meaningful, eloquently celebrating your special feeling for each other.
I am an ordained minister with a Master of Divinity degree from Southern Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY. Registered in New York since 1981, I have officiated at hundreds of weddings in every kind of venue from a small Manhattan chapel to a large
Hudson yacht, from atop the Empire State Building to a Westchester restaurant to a small family home. And I have done so to the great satisfaction of the couples, their family and friends.
I have also served a Westchester Unitarian Universalist congregation as their minister for the last ten years and am a published author, lecturer and counselor. I am married with three children."
How we’ll work together to create a ceremony that is uniquely yours
After we meet and get acquainted, you’ll tell me if you prefer a ceremony that is religious, nonreligious or interfaith. Perhaps a somewhat traditional ceremony with some reference to your religious faith. Or a non-religious rite with no reference to God but meaningful in a spiritual sense — expressing your deepest feelings about love, commitment and your relationship to the larger world.
I’ll listen carefully to the way you envision your wedding, taking a personal interest in each partner’s special point of view and what you want to say publicly to each other. I’ll suggest a format and we can talk about designating a relative or friend to be part of the ceremony.
We can also discuss incorporating readings and rituals of special importance from each partner’s religious faiths or secular convictions.
