"I pronounce you married" are some of my favorite words. Providing officiant services in the Phoenix area for over 20 years, it is my privilege to offer personalized ceremonies of all types including elopements, handfastings, and full-scale weddings. I also officiate Baby Naming and other Coming of Age ceremonies.
Your special day of commitment should be one of the amazing memories. The perfect venue, the perfect food, and clothing are easy to find from the many resources online, but finding the right officiant is a little less easy. Many couples come to me not knowing what to expect or what to ask. My job as your officiant begins with our very first contact. I'm here to answer your questions and guide you through the process of creating the ceremony of your dreams. Contact me soon to be sure your date is available.
I am LBGTQ friendly and I serve all couples of all cultures and beliefs. LOVE is LOVE.
When you contact me, we find a time and location where we can comfortably get to know each other and together we create your special ceremony. We incorporate ideas you have, family or cultural traditions, and suggestions if needed. If you are looking for a heart-felt ceremony, I'm sure my past couples will agree, I'm your officiant.
My starting package includes the planning and rehearsal, if needed, for weddings in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Travel outside the area is also possible. I know my rate is lower than a lot of officiants, and I want to help you get the service you deserve at an affordable price.
After your ceremony, I capture a few photo images of the day and handle the filing of your signed marriage license.
For a commitment ceremony or vow renewal, I provide a special certificate for the day if you desire.
My services are very flexible. I serve all couples. And I offer non-religious, religious, hand-fasting and other cultural options. Let me know what works for you.
Skyping in loved ones who can not attend in person is encouraged. I encourage the creative participation of children and pets (if the venue allows the latter). Children can either participate as part of the wedding party and/or as part of a family bonding ceremony after the couple has been announced.
Do you want to add a unity ceremony, like a unity candle, sand ceremony, time-capsule box, or other special activity?
Do you have an unusual request for a location or element? Let me know.
I've been blessed to be uniting couples and celebrating love for over 20 years. Heart-felt, Creative and Professional Service.
I'd love to officiate your ceremony.

I also conduct ceremonies for Baby Blessings and for other new starts: Coming of Age and Stepping Into Life.
