The Wedding Ceremony itself is the most important part of the day, of your life. Who you have stand before and preside over your ceremony is very crucial. Your Wedding Ceremony is about YOU, the bride and groom. It is about your commitment to EACH OTHER before God, your friends and family.
An an ordained minister, with 40 years' experience as a pastor, I have officiated 856 weddings...and counting... in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties in South Florida as well as New York. Many of these have been interfaith ceremonies. I work with each couple individually, taking elements from each of your denominational tradition(s). Then I create a personalized sacred and joyful interfaith wedding ceremony, meaningful to each of you and both of you as a couple.
We meet in my home to get to know one anoher better so that you feel comforatble with the person that stands before you as you vow to love each other for the rest of your lives. We then meet again a couple of weeks prior to the wedding ceremony to talk about the specifics of the actual ceremony. In addition to the traditional, or not so traditional vows, I recommend that you each write your own personal vows to each other. to be read during the ceremony. If it is not practical to meet personally we can meet through Skype.
As you prepare for your Florida wedding, you may not have a "home church" with a pastor that you have known for years. Or, you are planning to have a destination wedding with a few close family and friends. It would be my joy to perform a meaningful Personal, Sacred, & Joyful Ceremony as you make your lifetime commitment to each other.
I meet with you to make sure I am the right officiant to make your dreams come true. From the first draft of the vows to the ceremony, I will work with you to make sure your ceremony is a dream come true. In addition I offer vow writing, phone and email consultations, and rehearsals. I perform a variety of ceremonies, including:

Rev Paul and his wife on harp made our wedding perfect. Proper amount of communication prior to the event, updates prior to confirm and we knew everything was in great hands. They both arrived early by design prior to the wedding, and immediately went to work making us feel 100% comfortable and at perfect ease. They allowed extra time after in case we ran a little behind, and in fact suggested we delay the service a few minutes to take advantage of a perfectly beautiful sunset. Rev Paul even helped set up the alter best, and had ideas for our wonderful photographer Igor on some great pics. Thank you Rev and Mrs Paul! See you in 10 years to renew our vows. How about on Nevis at the Four Seasons this time!Sent on 05/18/2016

We had a great experience and would recommend Rev Paul. Thank you for making our wedding day so special.Sent on 04/18/2019
It is always a pleasure to play the harp for weddings that Pastor Paul is officiating. I enjoy watching how the couple relates to him, how he puts them at ease to be able to savor this special moment in time. It is particularly special as we work together with a couple to create the ceremony they have always dreamed of.
Professional and enjoys his work!
Rev. Paul is the consumate professional. His style, charm, wit and words of wisdom will make your new life with your new love one to which you will always cherish and remember. He's also friends with our Rabbi!
