Your wedding ceremony is something I care deeply about. It would be my pleasure to meet or speak with you about your special day.
I enjoy presiding over marriages and helping new couples take their first steps as a family. I work closely with a bride and groom to construct the perfect ceremony for them.
Renewing vows is a meaningful way to look forward while celebrating the past.
Commitment ceremonies are an alternative to a legal ceremony. They are filled with joy and Hope for a bright future. After all, isn't commitment what any ceremony is about?
Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
Getting to know a couple before their wedding date brings warmth to the ceremony.

Officiating at a steam punk wedding. It was hard to keep my eyes off the guests, I had never seen such interesting costumes.
