As a wedding officiant / Ordained Reverend, I strive to understand and embrace each individual’s spiritual path. I offer services for all faiths, inter-faith, non religious ceremonies and recognize the marriage laws in Illinois.
I believe a wedding ceremony should reflect who you are as a couple. In the six plus years of officiating in the greater Peoria and surrounding areas - it has been a privilege to express each couples spirituality, love and friendship in their wedding ceremony. I have officiated over 450 ceremonies and strive to make each ceremony unique to that couple and one that their family and friends will love as well.
It is not only how your ceremony is written, but how it is presented -When I consult with couples they often ask, “Will our guests be able to hear you?” They will also comment on how often they witness ceremonies that are monotone or bland. As your officiate, my job only begins with creating your ceremony. I rely on my extensive background in communications and theater and years of presentation experience to ensure your ceremony will be presented in an articulate and engaging style. It is important that your guests feel that your officiant took the time to get to know you. Your wedding day is your day to celebrate the love and friendship you have found, so it is important that every couple’s ceremony not only represents them, but is presented with enthusiasm and professionalism.
