Weddings and Commitment Ceremonies
The couple getting married aren't the only ones walking on air. I absolutely adore officiating weddings and all types of commitment ceremonies. I perform independent weddings aside from my part-time congregational duties simply because it is such a joy and an honor to be a part of one of the happiest days in a couple's lives. The affirmation that love prevails makes me giddy. Your guests will never know that though. I save the idiotic grinning for my drive home.
I have experience performing a wide range of weddings from civil services to religious ceremonies. I've been blessed with almost twenty years of marriage to a wonderful husband and am thrilled to witness other couples beginning their journey through life. Unlike the old Hollywood adage, I am more than happy to work with small children and animals. I better be, I have three of my own. Small children that is, not animals. Though some days I wonder.

Helpful Wedding Information
Did you know your officiant can do more for you than simply pronounce you husband and wife? Besides crafting and officiating the ceremony: I pin on a mean boutonniere, can leap beach railings in a single bound to retrieve a lost sand ceremony vase, supply a personal sound system for venues lacking microphones and once even "glued" a bridesmaid into her strapless gown. I have helped couples locate a place to hold their wedding, improvised successfully when unexpected changes needed to be made at the last moment, and loaned (very briefly!) one of my rings to a groom whose ring had not been delivered by the jeweler yet. What can I do for you?
I believe each couple should have a celebrant dedicated to providing a quality service tailored to their personalities and desires. This is truly a high point of my ministry. It's not only uplifting, it is great fun, and such an honor! I really enjoy being able to alleviate the stress of the day and guide everyone through a memorable and meaningful ceremony whether it is a simple home service, intimate beach affair or an elaborate social event. I consider it a very large part of my role to make sure the couple are enjoying their ceremony!
Ceremonies can be customized to: include children, blend religious rituals, honor your cultural heritage, use self-written vows, utilize a theme and more. Personalizing the service enables the focus to be on the couple and their expectations for their marriage. I can help form a clear message by developing a ceremony which engages the participants and guests.
