Final Ceremony...for now

Last year, I took on a new position with added responsibilities.  Because of this, I am no longer booking weddings.  While I love performing weddings, I am simply no longer confident in my long-term weekend availability.  Without knowing exactly what my availability is six months to a year in advance, I am not able to confidently reserve wedding dates.  So after six years of officiating and performing close to 100 wedding ceremonies, I presided over my final wedding in June.  Cheers to Mikki and Jake for a happy and love-filled life together!

I extend my deepest gratitude to the couples who have invited me to share their wedding day with them.  It has been my honor being a part of their truly joyous occasions.

Congratulations to all of them.  I wish you all the very best married life can offer!

Our Services

A wedding ceremony is rarely "cookie-cutter." Nor should it be. The ceremony is one of the few opportunities for you to place your own stamp on the wedding day. People sometimes lose sight of the fact that there are actually few things that must legally be said during the service. These statements take all of a couple minutes to say, leaving the rest of your ceremony up to you. Many couples do like the traditional format of the wedding ceremony, but even within this structure, there are ways to make it your own. This is the part of the process that I have the most fun with.

By learning more about you and your fiancé, I am able to recommend unique elements, phrasing, and symbolism for your service. Of course, this is all done while keeping the focus on a tasteful and elegant wedding. Once in a while, I will be asked to perform a purely traditional service. In this case, the format and script of the ceremony are already set-in-stone. While I am willing to accommodate this request, it has become more and more rare as couples seek to add a spirit of specialness to their ceremony. Regardless of whether you wish for a heavily scripted affair or a classic traditional service, I will work to ensure your day is special and unforgettable.


Basic ($200) - Designed for couples who wish for a quick, simple 10-minute ceremony, this service includes performance of the ceremony and filing of the completed license. 

Standard ($375) - This service includes performance of the ceremony, customized ceremony scripting, couple consultation, and filing of the completed license.

Grand ($550) - The most popular of services - includes full rehearsal, performance of the ceremony, customized ceremony scripting, couple consultation, and filing of the completed license.

*A note on fees: Additions to these services can be arranged and negotiated as all weddings are different and each couple is unique. The Grand, Standard and Basic service packages do not include transportation and a flat transportation fee may be applied, but will be discussed with the couple during the initial consultation.
