A little about me...I am a mother of 4, grandma to 2. I have been with my husband for almost 20 years! I am an ordained, non-denominational minister, and I honor all faiths and paths. I am bilingual speaking both English and Spanish fluently. I was raised in the Christian faith and am a lover of all faiths. I love...love!
I'm not good with TV references as I've normally got my nose buried in a book and don't get much TV time in. If I'm not reading (my 2nd favorite hobby) I'm probably cooking something up as that's my 1st favorite hobby. I enjoy making meals for my family and spending time in their company. And if all else fails and I'm not reading, cooking, with family or working...then I'm probably making jewelry! I've found it to be a great way to be creative!
My goal with officiating is to ensure your day is special. I want to make sure your wedding ceremony is something special and something you will remember always. I work closely with each couple to personalize your wedding script, to make sure that the things of importance are mentioned for you and that it is tailored to your specific relationship and beliefs. If you want super simple and intimate, then that is what we will do! If you want something intricate with lots of tradition, then that's what we will do! It is your special day, not a cookie cutter ceremony!
I should also mention I am a proud supporter of our military (my son's in the Army), LGBTQ+ Equality, and Love is Love! Just to name a few things. Did I mention I provide services in both English and Spanish?!?!
I am an ordained, non-denominational minister. I have two grown children and a couple of fur babies also. I work with clients of all faiths and backgrounds and am also a proud supporter of our military and LGBTQ+ community. I am excited to be joining Forever and Ever, I Do! L.L.C. and getting to meet new clients! When I am not presiding over weddings or other services, I can be found at home with my family or traveling!
I believe in providing a customized experience. My goal is to make your day fabulous and one you will never forget! I am a sucker for a good love story and love that I am able to be a part of so many different love stories!
I look forward to working with you to create your perfect day!
I am a non-denominational minister and absolutely love working with my clients to create their perfect ceremony. I am blessed to have the ability to help so many couples begin their happily ever after and find that I never tire of hearing a good love story!
Outside of officiating ceremonies, I am the mother of two very active little boys. My husband and I are expecting baby three this fall! We love spending time with family and giving our little family experiences they will never forget.
I look forward to the opportunity of working with you to create your perfect special day!
