Then, when you and your fiance stand before me on your wedding day, I will deliver your ceremony with all the love, sincerity and heartfelt eloquence that you so rightfully expect and deserve.

Do YOU Need a Wedding Officiant/ Minister for YOUR Special Day?  Many couples have a hard time finding a Minister to marry them if they are living together prior to marriage, if they have been married before, or if they don't belong to a particular church affiliation or religion.  Marriage is inherently a unique relationship between a man and a woman and my only requirements are that couples truly love each other, that they understand the importance and sanctity of marriage and that they have a sincere desire to be be united as husband and wife under God's blessing. That's it!  
 
BASIS FOR MARRIAGE:
 
Weddings are fantastic, but Marriages are Wonderful.  And why are they Wonderful?  Because they are ordained by God.  Marriage was instituted by God Himself as declared in Genesis 2:18.  "It is not good that a man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him".  Thereupon God created woman of man's own substance and brought her to the man.  Our Lord Jesus honored marriage by His presence at the wedding in Cana of Galilee.  And He confirmed it as a divine ordinance and a union not to be severed when He declared, "Therefore what God hath joined together, let man not separate".  Matthew 19:6.   Moreover, the apostle Paul set forth the sacred and exalted nature of marriage when he likened it to a mystical union that subsists between Christ and His Church.

VENUE:

I am an ordained Non-Denominational Christian Minister licensed to officiate weddings and other life event services.  I provide not only a quality product, but also a QUALITY EXPERIENCE and am professional in every way.  My services are ALWAYS about YOU and my goal is your complete satisfaction.  I will work with you to write YOUR story and I will make it a true feature of the day rather than just merely a ceremony that accomplishes a mission.  Your ceremony will not only be one your guests talk about whenever they see you, but it will be remembered for years to come.  It will be truly unique, truly reflective of your personalities and your story, and it will give your guests a gift of inspiration, of laughter, and of joy for you. 

I am prepared to perform your wedding ceremony or vow renewal in any location you choose, whether it be outdoors, in a church, or in the comfort of your own home.  I will travel anywhere you would like to have your wedding and distance is not an issue.   The love you share is a gift from God, and you are His special gift to each other.  It would be my privilege to perform your wedding ceremony under His blessing and to not only offer you a fantastic wedding, but help you begin a wonderful marriage... a dance between three partners; you, your bethrothed and God Himself.  "A cord of three strands is not easily broken".  Ecclesiastes 4:12.

I offer a wide range of officiant services and will work with you to make your wedding exactly as you envision.  Whether it be a spur of the moment ceremony, an elopement or a wedding of any size, your ceremony deserves to be every bit as special as the love you share and regardless of length, it will be written with complete care and attention. I offer a full-service customized wedding ceremony, personalized to your style and taste and am prepared to perform either a traditional or contemporary service; or if you prefer, a nice blend of the two.  Writing and public speaking are my strong points and this is where I do my best work.  I like to talk with my couples, get a feel for their thoughts and feelings as to what they would like their wedding to portray and then write a ceremony that speaks for and about them, both as individuals and as a couple.  Theme Weddings are another way of expressing your individuality and I can tailor your ceremony to correspond with any theme you choose. Including family members and pets as a special part of the ceremony is also becoming a popular feature and whatever your wedding vision is, I will work with you to make it happen. You may choose your vows from examples I provide or, if you prefer, you can write your own. We can include a Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Water Ceremony, Rose Ceremony, Breaking the Glass Ceremony, Box Ceremony, special readings, favorite scripture, family customs, anything you choose that would make it unique and meaningful to you. The possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination and desires.  Depending upon your location, we can handle the pre-marriage consultations by phone, by mail, or in person and I will work with you to make sure every detail is just as you want it.  Your personalized ceremony will be written specifically for you and your betrothed, a beautiful reflection of you, your beliefs, personal desires and the love you share.  Once written, I will either mail or hand deliver the ceremony draft to you for approval or further editing.  My goal is your complete satisfaction and I will go the "extra mile" to capture the heart and soul of your relationship, making the finished product meaningful, memorable, and UNIQUELY BREATHTAKING.
 
I bring my own PA, which works with or without electricity, so your  guests will be able to hear the ceremony even if your venue does not provide one.  It is small, self-contained and unnoticeable in photos.  Following the wedding, I will provide you with a Wedding Portfolio, a Keepsake Marriage Certificate suitable for framing and a beautiful booklet containing a copy of your personalized ceremony.   I will also file your marriage license with the proper town or city authorities and provide you with a copy of the same.  A lot of times couples will have family members ask the blessing at the meal following the wedding, however if you would like me to perform this function, I would be honored to do so.  My ultimate goal is to provide you with a quality experience and one that will leave a memory that is equally treasured years down the road, as it is the day following your wedding.
 
I am sincere, easy-going and flexible and will do everything within my power to make YOUR day special... just the way YOU want it.   
 
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING: 

Most of the comments I receive come from parents, relatives and wedding guests who sincerely thank me for a unique, heartfelt ceremony and memories that will last a lifetime.
 
One mother told me, "I will never experience another wedding service more beautiful than this one.   As I listened to your words, I kept wondering if you could possibly say something better or more meaningful than what you had already said, and each time you did.  It was wonderful.  Anyone would be privileged to have you perform their wedding ceremony."  
 
Another person told me "My family and I flew all the way across country to attend this wedding, and hearing your words made it worth every mile".

FEES:
 
Fees are structured to support time dedicated to writing and designing your ceremony.  I custom-write each and every one of my ceremonies and no two are alike.  This means that your ceremony will be one of a kind, totally unique to the two of you and there will never be another one exactly like it.  Factors in determining the cost of your ceremony will include meeting time and travel, as well as time to write and officiate your ceremony.
 
Please check out my webpage for further details and complete pricing information.  www.SweetSongMinistries.com/id114.html
 
No matter which ceremony package you choose, please be assured that I will do everything within my power to make your ceremony totally stress free so that all you have to do is smile, say "I Do", and enjoy your day. :)
.
 
The Couple gives permission and shall allow The Officiant to post a photograph(s) of them with The Officiant (or any other photos taken by the Officiant or her Representative during the course of the wedding ceremony) on The Officiant’s website or other social media for viewing by the internet community.  The Couple acknowledges that this is for promotional purposes only and they do not expect to receive any compensation of any kind.  There shall be no expiration for this permission.
