Introduction: [[ NOTE: ]] With the current concerns related to COVID-19, we want you to know: I'm fully vaccinated and have received my booster dose, too. Of course I abide by any local ordinances in whatever community I serve. We're committed to being as flexible as humanly possible regarding changes in your plans for your wedding day. We're happy to "meet' with you via Zoom or Skype in place of an in person meeting if you wish. If your re-scheduled wedding day lands on a day when I'm committed to another couple - my wife is also a Wedding Officiant! Additionally, we have other truly trusted professionals (who love weddings as much as we do) who can serve as well. We've got back up! If your wedding gets postponed, but you still want to have a "tiny wedding" on your original date, I'm happy to come to your home and maintain safe social distancing according to local regulations while officiating an intimate ceremony for you. If your wedding gets postponed to a date when none of us is available to serve you, we will fully refund any deposit you have paid to us. - - - - - - - - - I believe that officiating a wedding is a unique privilege. I especially enjoy getting acquainted with the "Nearly-Weds" so I can understand not only their preferences for the ceremony, but also their personalities. I love it when wedding guests tell me it sounded like I'd known the couple for years. I love the challenge of crafting a ceremony that reflects just the right balance of respect, sentiment, and humor for a couple. Meeting nearly-weds and hearing of their heartfelt love for one another delights me and regularly reminds me of the brilliant diversity of souls in this universe. Short of birthing babies, what could be more fun?!

TJ was a huge part of why our wedding day was so perfect. Neither Jordan or I are religious, so when searching for an officiant it felt almost like something we “had” to do. TJ completely blew us away by the amount of time he spent getting to know us, the amount of care he showed us, and love, just knowing him for such a short time. He is truly amazing at what he does. During our meetings with him prior to our wedding, he would ask us questions to learn more about us and would leave me curiously wondering. Everything we shared with him about our relationship and family and values he really listened to and made our ceremony incredibly personal, he made it fun for our family and friends to listen to and they all loved TJ. Many people after our ceremony came up to Jordan and I to tell us how much they enjoyed TJs words and how personable he is and how they want to hire him for their own wedding. He is made to do this work and was such a huge part of why our day was so special. I will never forget TJ and would recommend him to anyone I know looking for an officiant for their wedding day!

TJ was a great officiant for our wedding. We met with him over Zoom prior and he mined us for information about our relationship and us each personally. The conversation was easy and organic and resulted in a ceremony that highlighted all of the special things about each of us, and us together that we had discussed. We didn't use a religious template of any sort, so the ceremony was all about us and had guests in (happy) tears by the time it was over.

From the moment we met TJ we knew he was the perfect fit for us, hilarious, thoughtful, a little nerdy and made us feel totally comfortable. My husband and I are not used to being the center of attention but TJ helped us feel less nervous. We didn't know what to expect from our initial meeting but ended up spending a couple of hours talking and getting to know each other. To say he crafted the wedding ceremony of our dreams was an understatement. A month later and we still have some of our guests come up to me and compliment him! One person even told us it was the best ceremony they had been to in years!
