Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Do you want to marry your Sweetheart? Then I will be there!. I have performed weddings on the Comal Bridge, in a garden setting, in front of the river and several other locations. I work with my couples to help them fulfill the desires of their hearts.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I usually wear a professional modest suit. The Officiate never outshines the Bride!
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely. This is a celebration of love. Love is in the details. Words of love. I will work with my couples to create for them a wedding ceremony long to be rermembered.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Most definately. One of the most beautiful weddings that I Officiated at was where the Groom and Bride wrote their own vows which we included in the wedding ceremony.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Yes and No. I have several Beautiful Weddings on computer. The couples may chose a template of their wedding ceremony from my wedding album and then choose which readings, vows, ring vows that they prefer from my list to add to their ceremony. They may also bring their own readings should they prefer.
How long are your ceremonies?
20 to 30 minutes, and that includes the Unity Sand, Unity Candle, Rose Ceremony and other added readings that my couples may chose.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Do you supply a sound system?

Taken from my blog:
As an Officiant I understand that my couples often have a budget with their wedding day festivities.--the wedding business is a multi-billion dollar industry.
Advertising: This is a biggie. Today most brides are internet savvy and how glad I am.. Advertising cost have gone up 40% or more on the best sites. My website costs money for me to have a dependable one. My potential brides (and grooms) want to see what my services are. They want to read any reviews that I have from past weddings.
