On WeddingWire since 2009

Please know effective today 9/27/23, Weddingpro has terminated my contract that I have had with them since 2009 because I do not perform same sex weddings. They increased their rates again and I asked about this and chose to only have a free account. In doing so I was told that other paid vendors would have their site information advertised on my page. I was against this and ask why would you allow this. If I do not perform same sex weddings but if a paid vendor does and their information is posted on my page doesn't that look like I support this? I do not hate or dislike any same sex couple and would give the shirt off my back for them just like I would a friend. Because of my religious belief I choose not to perform same sex weddings and for my religious belief I am being removed from their platform. If you are interested in having me perform your wedding please email me at

Dear Couple to be United,

Congratulations on your engagement! You are about to embark on one of life's most sacred adventures. Your wedding ceremony is the official start of your life together and I know how much you want it to be special and very meaningful.

My goal is to perform a ceremony that tells your love story and meets your needs, while honoring who you are, your dreams, your love and hopes! In the process of forming this very special moment I will also work with you to create a ceremony that lets your family and friends know how much you appreciate them, by expressing the very important role they play in your life. Officiating is more than a labor of love to me, it鈥檚 a sacred trust and a blessing. It is a humble, unique way of making the world a little brighter, two special people at a time.

Your wedding day will be the start of a very long walk together as one. When I am given the honor to perform a wedding I take every second of every minute of every day I get to prepare for this ceremony to the heart. Your wedding day will forever be the day that will make you the husband and the wife you so want to be. When I do a wedding I do not do it just for the wedding day but for the marriage life the two of you will have.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please contact me via phone or email to make arrangements or to discuss your wedding ceremony further. You can contact me by phone (804)572-0833 or by email at for any other information you may need for me to help bring you two together as one.

Look no further!

Brian was our officiant for our 5/22/21 wedding. From the moment we met Brian via zoom, he was always so honest, kind, and easy to talk to. With Brian's wedding package, you get a premarital counseling session which we took advance of and I highly recommend. We decided to do a semi-religious ceremony and he has several sample ceremonies to choice from with different passages and variations so that you can customize it to make it perfect for you! After the wedding, Brian sends you a name change kit that guides you through the steps to change your name if you wish to do so. 100% recommend Brian!

Amazing to work with!

Brian was such a blessing for us to have found to marry us! He is beyond professional and carries himself accordingly. Due to Covid we had a small wedding of 25 people and had a livestream for those we could not host in person. We received SO many compliments on Brian! He made the whole rehearsal and ceremony run smoothly! It began to rain during our outdoor ceremony and I swear Brian didn鈥檛 even flinch and kept calm. He really is what made our ceremony run so smoothly! We can鈥檛 thank you enough, Brian!!

Best Officiant!

Pastor Brian was very kind, on time, and a pleasure to work with! We had a short, sweet, and semi-religious ceremony in mind and that's exactly what he gave us! He sent us many different ceremony types and samples that we were able to choose from and piece together. He put together the perfect ceremony and we loved it. I would highly recommend Pastor Brian to anyone!!
