What’s the right wedding ceremony for a religiously independent couple? A courthouse ceremony is cold, impersonal, and over in a flash. A church ceremony is usually just a long sermon to which your actual ceremony is a sideshow. Pick your poison - a quick, dry affair with no heart, or a long, tedious slog that flies in the face of your worldview. Or... chuck that poison and grab the champagne. I got you, boo!
Most wedding ceremonies are religious, and thus focus overwhelmingly on religious themes. But your ceremony will instead focus on thoughtful, bold insights on love and commitment, and personal stories and details about your relationship. With 15 years in the business and over 600 ceremonies officiated, I bring the eloquence to deliver a deeply moving yet lighthearted ceremony, a relaxed demeanor that will keep you calm and centered, and unparalleled expertise in wedding ceremony craft and theory. You'll fill out a detailed survey that puts you in full control of every aspect of your ceremony, and you'll answer insightful personal questions so that I can share some highlights of your romance with your family and friends.
The best ceremony they've ever seen - that's what they'll all say!

Thanks to Tim, our ceremony was absolutely perfect!
Before the ceremony itself, Tim helped with all of my anxiousness. He impressed everyone at our rehearsal as he took complete control and helped direct everyone and everything. It was like having a wedding coordinator. He knew exactly what to do and how to orchestrate everyone. My venue coordinator even applauded him for such a job well done. Then, on the day of my wedding, I was hit with a last minute decision of whether I should have my wedding indoors or outdoors because there was a 90% chance of rain. I was so adamant about having our ceremony outside, but so many people (my photographer, videographer, DJ, venue coordinator, some family, etc) were telling me I need to change the ceremony to have it indoors because the rain was looking pretty promising. My husband and I agreed that we wanted to be outside, even if it was raining, and the ONLY person who was on our side was Tim. I will never forget the phone call I had with Tim an hour before walking down the aisle. He told me that he will marry us in the pouring rain and it would be amazing memory for us forever..... that's all I needed. I just needed someone on my side and Tim was it. (One thing to note, is that Tim even had another ceremony they he had to officiate after mine, but he was willing to inconvenience himself, get soaking wet just for us, and figure out what he needed to do for the next wedding... he was 100% committed!) Thankfully, we held our ceremony outside and the rain held off!! I have Tim to thank for this because I almost gave into everyone else's pushy opinions, but Tim wanted to make sure I got what I wanted.
Tim is such a remarkable person. From the moment you have your first phone call with him, it is obvious that he is a true, genuine character who is passionate about what he does. He has an extremely friendly demeanor about him, and his humor is so much fun. Tim is great with his words and absolutely worth the price you pay to hire him. He honestly deserves so much more than he asks for. I can't recommend Tim enough! I will always encourage anyone planning a wedding to consider him. Outside of my bias because it was my own wedding, Tim's performance was the most sincere I have ever seen at any wedding I've ever been to (and I've been to a lot!).
Tim, I am forever grateful for you! Thanks for exceeding our expectations, and being more than we could ever ask for! You are amazing.
If you’re thinking about booking Tim, do it!
We loved working with Tim!
