Daniel & Theresa

On November 29, 2008, Daniel and Theresa were married in a lovely ceremony in Audubon Park, NJ. This was a very special event because it was one in which the whole family came together to support this couple in every step of their wedding. Weddings are not cheap, and even when couples try to scale back, the costs can add up quickly. Daniel and Theresa's families came together and pooled their resources and talents. By doing so, Daniel and Theresa were able to have a wedding that involved their closest family members without breaking the bank.

I was so pleased to work with this couple to make sure they were able to have the traditional wedding ceremony they desired. Complete with traditional vows and the lighting of the Unity Candle, we were still able to express the spirit of Thanksgiving within this Thansksgiving weekend wedding. In that spirit, I thank Daniel and Theresa both for choosing me as their wedding officiant.

Cheers to this special couple!

Andrew & Marnie

Marnie and Andrew were a wonderful couple to work with. The two of them decided on an outdoor wedding in Avalon, NJ - a beautiful shore community. With the natural beauty of the setting, I knew their wedding day would be very special indeed. Because the wedding was outdoors, the couple decided against a traditional candle ceremony. It was replaced by a wine blessing. Having once lived in the heart of California wine country, the couple used a wonderful Santa Barbara red - a wine representing an important stage in their relationship. Complete with an Irish Blessing, their ceremony was uniquely personal to them. By sharing the personal signifigance of each portion of the ceremony with their guests, Marnie and Andrew were able to share a bit of themselves and their love as well. It was a beautiful wedding.
