About Rent A Preacher

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.'

    Our ceremony was perfect

    Reverend Russ was a pleasure to work with! We met with him twice before the wedding, and we had no doubt in our minds that he would provide a wonderful ceremony for us. He was professional, knowledgeable, and performed our ceremony with a traditional yet light-hearted feel. Also, we wanted our ceremony to be 20-30 minutes long, and our ceremony was exactly 20 minutes - perfect!! Thank you so much Reverend Russ, you made our day so special.

    Fantastic time

    Because neither of us wanted a traditional church wedding, we choose to have a small ceremony with close family only. Russ walked us through the ceremony ahead of time, let us make changes without question and made this "our" wedding. Being a second marriage for both of us, and being in our late 60's, we really appreciated being able to personalize the ceremony to us. Thanks for making our day so special Russ.

    Russ is awesome!

    Rev Russ did everything that we asked & more. He was very understanding when we had to make changes because of the pandemic. He did an absolute amazing job at our wedding. All of our guests even complimented him!

    You are too kind. Mom’s backyard was great and there was Corona beer in ‘honor’ of C-19.
    Be good to each other.
