Introduction: We are an officiant/photographer duo that will also work individually when the situation dictates. We provide a personal alternative to the standard, establishment wedding ceremony and wedding photography. We strive to be the embodiment of the phrase “A friend in need is a friend in deed.” This is our forte. As an officiant, I have information, basic scripts, and add-ons to make the process more definitive and less stressful. As the photographer , Dee has creative ideas and props to make the photographic depiction of the total event truly memorable. Check our reviews and photos, including our Wedding Broom. THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE BROOM. We have a beautiful, handcrafted, Wedding Broom! The “Jumping the Broom” is a ceremony in which the the bride and groom signify their entrance into a new life and their creation of a new family by symbolically “sweeping away” their former single lives, former problems and concerns, and jumping over the broom to enter upon a new adventure as a married couple. At the conclusion of the ceremony, one of the attendants produces the broom, or a special person from the audience brings the broom and places it in the path of the wedding couple. They then jump over the broom on their way to the recessional. Couples celebrate this rich cultural heritage, irrespective of race, religion, and nationally. The most important thing is its significance; honoring and respect of your ancestors, their legacy, and your family heritage, the coming coming together of both families, and the commitment to each other as husband and wife. It represents strength, love, togetherness, loyalty, and respect, which is essential for a successful marriage. All of that being said, who is ready take to take the leap and “jump the broom”? We are ready if you are and we have the broom! Book your wedding with us today!

Alfiya K.

Wedding Officiant

We enjoyed having Norm as our officiant. He communicated with us in timely manner, arrived early to our wedding ceremony and waited patiently for the bride. Most importantly he is very easy going and good spirited person and it shows the that he loves what he does and puts his heart and mind into it! You will not regret choosing him as your officiant because he is personable and kind and it feels like you’ve known him from before.

Kurt and I are from out of state. Norm did a terrific job for us. He gave us all of the information we needed upfront and communicated via email through the planning days, making our wedding a lovely, non-stressful experience. He was exactly what we wanted. I would definitely recommend him as an officiant.

Wedding Officiant

Norm communicated with me and answered all my questions I had. He got back to me the same day. Norm knew what he was doing and was very professional and personable. His wife, Dee, accompanied Norm to the wedding and took pictures. Dee is very nice and just jumped in there. They are a team of excellence and they made our day special. I’m so glad we went with Norm. I loved that he had so many verses to choose from to make it fit for us. Norm was on time and just guided us through the ceremony. Thank you Norm and Dee.

We knew Norm was the one we wanted as our wedding officiant, thus the only one we contacted here on Thumbtack and glad he responded promptly to confirm it! We had a great communication all throughout the process of finalizing everything. He arrived way early to make sure everything's all set and the ceremony went amazing! We highly recommend Norm for his professionalism, smooth communication and awesome personality. Thank you for being a part of our special day!

An hour from published ceremony start time is included in the fee.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It starts with a phone call to discuss the timing and location. If necessary, we meet in person to talk in person about the expectations for the day.I take pride in learning about who the participants really are so I can bring a personal feeling to their ceremony. With that in mind, I am genuinely interested in hearing their details- the story of how they met, the family dynamics, individual likes and dislikes,their hopes for the future and other insights that I will lean on to set the ceremony apart, to establish an intimacy for everyone involved. I am attentive to everyone's needs. I have basic scripts and add on for the couple to look over, pick/choose, add/delete and together we put together the couple’s personal ceremony .

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    While I have no professional education as an officiant, my previous work gave me the background qualifications and impetus to follow this path. I am retired from CBS Network News and was always in front of diverse groups of individuals....giving talks, lectures and general customer relations. I know how to get the best out of people, how to treat them and make them feel at home. My wife is a retired educator with a degree in visual arts and we have been a dynamic duo since we both retired.
