My name is Dana and I want to make your event a success. I offer 15 years of non-denominational ministry and professional event planning experience. My public speaking experience spans 14 years, 16 states and two foreign countries. I also sharpen my public speaking skills weekly as well as a member of Toastmasters.
Many couples wrestle with the question of who should officiate their wedding, especially if they don't have a church or a Pastor who knows their names. I also know people who therefore entrusted the responsibility to an officiant who showed up intoxicated.
As an ordained minister, I feel that spiritualizing a wedding for a not-so-spiritual couple is a disservice to them. Everything about a wedding is personifies the couple, so I match the ceremony with the couple's spirituality and represent them by my words.
My Masters is in Theology and Counseling, so I am able to prepare you for 'becoming one' without 'falling apart'!
The most hectic part of my own wedding (literally) was navigating the wedding license procedures. I will help guide you through this, and will assume the responsibility of verifying and submitting your license after the wedding -- that's no time to concern yourself with paperwork!
When you call to set up your free consultation I will secure your time and date pending the receipt of a non-refundable $200 deposit. After your consultation and also upon receiving the deposit I will send you a ceremony template in a Word document by e-mail. You can make changes, and then return it via e-mail.
