Our mission is to provide you, the wedding
couple, with a ceremony designed to fit your beliefs, time
frame, and budget. We also offer pre- and post-marital
counseling to help strengthen the marriage union.
offer a personal touch to every ceremony that I perform. No two weddings
are ever the same. I go the extra mile to make sure the couple is
satisfied. I am here to serve to couple. I also give every couple
a keepsake gift from me.
This is my step by
step procedure that I follow with all couples:
A. I meet with the couple to introduce myself
and my services. During this meeting I also obtain as much information
regarding the couples, needs, and wants with regards to their wedding
B. If the couple feels that I am a good match
for their ceremony, I then send them a wedding agreement, which
spells out all of the services I am to provide for their ceremony.
This agreement is then signed by the couple and returned to me with
a $100.00 deposit.
C. After the agreement and deposit is sent back
to me, I then begin to forward samples of the various wedding components
(vows, ring vows, passages, ect.) for their selection.
D. Then I
usually have a second meeting with the couple to finalize the wedding
ceremony. At this meeting we go over all the details of the ceremony,
and the selections the couple made. I then create a wedding ceremony
outline for the couple, so that everybody is on the same page the
day of the wedding. This outline also is a helpful tool for another
officiant to use in case of my absence due to an emergency. That is
also part of my package, having a replacement minister if an emergency
E. I will attend the wedding rehearsal for one
hour. At the rehearsal I will assist with coordination if need be.
F. The day of the wedding I will arrive at least
15 minutes early to coordinate with DJ and/or wedding coordinator.
I like to do this because it assures me that we will all be in accord.
After the ceremony I meet with the two designated witnesses to sign
the wedding license. I also will stay after the ceremony to take
a picture with the couple if it is requested.
G. Upon request I will also stay to do
a blessing over the food.
I go the extra mile for couples to make
sure their wedding day runs smoothly. There was one wedding where
the couple did not have a wedding coordinator and they did not have
a clue on what to do. So I stepped in to help coordinate the processional
I offer a personal touch to ever ceremony that
I perform. No two weddings are ever the same. I go the extra mile
to make sure the couple is satisfied. I am here to serve to couple.
I also give every couple a keepsake gift from me.
I also have some little special phrases
I use during the vows, at the couples request that will definitely
make the audience laugh, as well as the couple. This helps when
the bride or groom is becoming very emotional and having a hard
time getting through the vows. Every couple I have used this with
has loved it. The guest always loves it too.
I try to do anything in my power and control
to assist the couple in making their day wonderful.
