Personalized and unique wedding ceremonies and coordinating services
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 I recognize the marriage laws in Illinois. .
I believe a wedding ceremony should embody who the couple are - I have been officiating and providingwedding services in central Illinois and outlying areas for over seven years - it has been a privilege to get to know each couple and to craft and present a ceremony that expresses their spirituality, love and friendship. I have had to opportunity to officiate over 500 ceremonies and strive to make each ceremony unique to that couple and one that their family and friends will love as well. It is so important to really get to know the couple and share my experience, but also let them bring their own unique style to their wedding ceremony. The couples input is what truly makes a wedding ceremony special.
It is not only how a 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 an officiant, my job only begins with creating a personalized ceremony. I rely on my extensive background in communications and theater and years of presentation experience to ensure that each ceremony is presented in an articulate and engaging style. It is important that a couple's guests feel that the officiant took the time to get to know them. A wedding is a couple's day to celebrate the love and friendship they have found in one another - it is important the every couple's ceremony not only represents them, but is presented with enthusiasm and professionalism.
I have the pleasure of working with my lovely wife Carolyn who serves as wedding rehearsal and ceremony coordinator. Carolyn has an extensive background in event promotions, she is there to assist in rehearsal and on the big day. She is a valuable addition and provides a fun and professional demeanor that puts every couple and their wedding party at ease.
