Background

As an ordained minister serving the State of Maryland, I believe that every couple should start their life together with a ceremony that reflects their unique relationship. I have had the honor and privilege to marry couples of different cultures, beliefs and ages. The one characteristic all couples share for their wedding day is a desire to begin life together, by declaring their love and commitment before family and friends, with a personal and personalized ceremony.

Services & Process

If you are interested in having me officiate, we schedule time to meet in a mutually convenient location to discuss your goals and ideas. There is no fee for this consultation. If you choose to use my services, we will co-sign a reservation agreement and I will provide you with a computer disk featuring sample ceremonies, vows and readings to help you personalize your service at your leisure. We will work together, via e-mail and phone, to create the ceremony and vows that reflect your relationship, honor your history and celebrate your individuality.

 

Your Wedding Day

On the day of the wedding, I will arrive an hour before the ceremony. After checking in with both the bride and groom, as well as a coordinator if you have one, I will review the ceremony with the photographer and/or videographer and provide the musicians with their cues.

 

With a low-key and flexible style, I will work with you and your vendors to ensure everything goes smoothly.

 

After the ceremony, I complete the State of Maryland’s Certificate of Marriage and provide you with a copy. As your officiant, I file the appropriate copy with the County in which you are married so that you have the official legal documentation on record as required. In addition, I keep a copy in my files should you ever need a back up.
