Weddings

the art of crafting and officiating ceremonies. I have access to a wealth of information and resources and work with you to create a ceremony that represents your needs, beliefs, and personality.

They say “fortune favors the bold,” and I can’t think of a bolder expression than marriage. Your wedding day is about the two of you expressing your love and appreciation for each other in a magnanimous way! As your wedding officiant, I honor that you are choosing to join in communion to deepen your relationship and take a bold step forward in creating a new family.

I enjoy getting to know you and finding out about your journey as a couple. I love to hear stories about how you met or got engaged. These experiences help me get to know you, so I can help you design a ceremony that is unique and meaningful for both of you.

I believe that finding a wedding officiant that fits you and your partner is one of the most important steps to ensuring a ceremony that is right for you. I focus on personalized service so your special day is as unique and memorable as you have always imagined. You can be certain that I will be there for you every step of the way to provide you with a sacred and unique ceremony.

I delight in celebrating love wherever it blooms. I stand for love.
