About

Wedding? Commitment ceremony? Renewing your vows? Hand-fasting? Spiritual joining? Elopement? Need a minister without a church affiliation? Theme wedding: Scottish, Irish? (I own my own formal Scottish kilt, jacket, etc.)
Additional services: Baptisms, christenings, naming ceremonies, and funerals.

I can help you create that meaningful ceremony that expresses who you are as a couple and as individuals, I am very tolerant of all religious and spiritual beliefs and therefore can create a memorable ceremony that reflects your personal religious choices, beliefs and values.

Personalized ceremonies are my specialty; however standard marriage services are available as well. Either quick and simple or embellished with traditions and pomp and circumstance, you end up with a 'ceremony done your way.'

A wonderful Ceremony!

Rev Russ was great to work with! On rehearsal night, I was running around like crazy to get decor set up on a hot day. He could tell I was overwhelmed and hot, he gave me a water and made sure I drank it to keep hydrated!! Our ceremony was beautiful and he is such a great speaker. He even added in some ideas that I had sent him! I highly recommend!!
