As the name of my business suggests, I am available to provide marriage services to all couples, regardless of gender. It is not a gay marriage or a traditional marriage.... it is just marriage. For me, it is also a matter of providing a "just" marriage that is available to all.
I am an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ (www.ucc.org), who also happens to be openly gay. I was ordained at my home church in Modesto, CA in 2009, prior to moving to Tulsa where I have pastored two different churches, served on the board for three different non-profits, and served as the Executive Director of the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance. I am working with the City of Tulsa as a member of the steering committee for Compassionate Tulsa. I am not serving as a local church pastor at this time.
My weddings are personalized to your needs, and are designed to reflect the commitments and relationship of the couple. I am available to provide guidance and assistance in crafting a service that takes into account the beliefs of the couple, any family arrangements, as well as personal, familial, or community traditions. As the former Executive Director of the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance, I have experience with a wide array of service types and venues ranging from church-based "traditional" services to outdoor handfastings; weddings with over 100 in attendance, or private ceremonies on the courthouse steps. I am available to perform legally-recognized unions, as well as unions without legal recognition.
I can perform a quick "justice of the peace" type of ceremony (exchange of vows and, if requested, rings) at any location in Tulsa for $60. (Other locations are subject to a $0.55/mile mileage charge.)
I can perform a full wedding in the venue of your choice starting at $200.

To check my availability, please visit: https://calendly.com/justmarriageok At that location you will also be able to place a temporary hold on an available date/time, pending my review of your request.
I do not offer pre-marital counseling, but I am able to provide referrals.
I am available to travel anywhere in the USA, and am willing to consider ceremonies in any venue.
I am fluent in sign language (see-sign).

Reverend Bob did an amazing job at helping us feel very happy with our decision to make him our officiant :) Since me and my now husband are new to the Tulsa area, we weren't sure where to have our tiny little ceremony (only our most immediate family was there) and Reverend Bob suggested the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens, which turned out to be GORGEOUS! We were so happy with his timeliness, friendliness, and professionalism! DEFINITELY book this guy if you're looking for an officiant ??Sent on 10/31/2016

Bob was very nice and friendly. After we booked a date and time with him, we received many confirmation emails up to our wedding. One less thing to worry about!Sent on 07/04/2018

Just Marriage's reply:Thank you, Roger. I appreciated your hospitality and wish you both many more years of happiness together. (And I, too, hope you don't need me again. But, if you do...... LOL)
