Cynthia & Ese O.
Steven was extremely helpful when he came to our ceremony He came early and even if it took the Bride a while to get dressed, Steven was considerably patient. Grateful.Sep 6, 2020Diakonos Ind. Ministries of MD's reply

Dakota, it has been my absolute pleasure to get to know you, Nick, and your entire family as we have worked on your wedding and the many other occasions I have been a part of. I thank you greatly for the warm review. God Bless you!

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have a 30-minute phone or video consult with at least one member of the couple. We have a 4 (or more) session Premarital Counseling/Education program we like to go through with the couple prior to the wedding ceremony. These sessions are normally no longer than an hour. We find it helps ease wedding day tensions if you have time to get to know your Officiant/Minister. We want to get you started on the right track. Even if you have been married before, have kids with your partner, or have been living together we know this program will be of benefit to you.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a Licensed Wedding Officiant, and Ordained Minister through the Christian Leaders Alliance. You can validate my credentials on our website.
