                           Wedding Officiant - since 2005
                         I Love What I Do ~Because of You !

         I am an Ordained Interfaith Minister. I refer to myself as a Wedding Officiant. 
                  Along with that You could also say I am a Wedding Ceremony Planner
                   My religion is to be a good person. Be respectful, kind, honest and have fun.  
                                   My favorite compliment I hear often is 'You Listened'.  
  I began with one wedding ceremony in 2005 & now officiate over 30 weddings ceremonies a year.

Ceremony Options are listed below:

*I will sign Wedding Certificate with Couple and 2 witnesses*

1. Some are Short & Sweet.  At the couples choice of location.

3. Some want a Personal Wedding Ceremony. We meet and plan all aspects, together.
 I meet with couples in my office, Skype & FaceTime to create their personal ceremony in their way with their ideas and my ideas & experience.       
                                           We make everything just right.
From our first meeting until couples say 'I DO" I am making sure everything is just as we discussed and planned. My follow through involves; arriving 1 1/2 hours early on wedding day;  make sure all is set with music for ceremony; unity ceremony; Plus, I help Ushers make sure all guests are comfortable, seated and everything begins on time. 
I am there to guide everyone through each step & to be available for questions.
