Introduction: Congratulations! I'm an ordained nondenominational Christian minister, not with an online "ordination," which isn't legally valid for performing weddings in North Carolina anyway. I perform both non-religious and religious weddings, and I've officiated at over one thousand marriage ceremonies, so I have plenty of experience in what makes an enjoyable ceremony. Having spent years working in radio, I have a voice folks enjoy hearing, and one that never needs a microphone to be heard. My writing skills have always been praised for custom crafting ceremonies to fit the exact needs of the moment, and the exact wishes of my clients. Also, I've spent time acting on the stage, so I know a bit about how to deliver my "lines" with style and grace without upstaging the two real stars of the show--the couple getting married! I perform weddings in Spanish, and have performed portions of ceremonies in eight other languages. I don't offer any packages or discounts, as I think straightforward pricing is the best. My fee is $235 for a wedding ceremony in the Charlotte region. This fee doesn't include a rehearsal, but if you wish to hire me to "run" your rehearsal I'll be happy to assist. My job is all about helping people find even more joy in what should be one of the very happiest days of their lives. I reduce stress, solve problems, and find answers. My very best wishes to you both, and I look forward to having the opportunity to help you!

Words can’t describe how happy we were with Alex officiating our wedding. We worked with us through writing the ceremony and had a great questionnaire to start things off and from there he sent multiple drafts of the ceremony until we got to a version we loved. Not only was the ceremony beautiful, funny and light hearted but he also did it in Spanish as well!!! My mom and familia had nothing but great things to say after the ceremony! I recommend him for all future couples in their search for an officiant!

Details: Wedding • Catholic • 51 - 100 guests • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Spanish • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Alex was a perfect choice for my friend’s wedding, and I’m very glad I found him. He organized and performed an elegant and personal ceremony that was perfect for the occasion. The bride and groom were more than satisfied and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a highly professional and personal wedding officiant

No need to look any further for an officiant!!! Alex is the right man for the job!!! We had an exceptional experience working with Alex for our wedding! We booked Alex only two weeks before our wedding because we were nervous about finding an officiant that suited us as a couple. Alex was extremely responsive, very helpful, and did a perfect job officiating. He worked with us to give us exactly the secular ceremony we wanted. He had a plethora of options for each part of the ceremony for us to pick from so we could really customize what he said during the ceremony to us. At the ceremony, he even thought ahead and moved after announcing that we could kiss so that he wouldn't be in the pictures! I was so blown away that he thought of that and did it automatically because I hadn't even remembered to ask even after seeing that tip literally everywhere while wedding planning! We knew that we were in good hands with Alex from our very first phone call with him. The ceremony was something we didn't have to worry about at all because we knew Alex had it covered and is an absolute professional! All of our guests went on and on about how much they loved our ceremony, how romantic it was, how sweet it was. They were all complimenting what an amazing job Alex did officiating. He really did make our ceremony perfect. It was so romantic and personalized to us as a couple. He didn't include anything we didn't want said or mentioned during the ceremony. He made our hand fasting ceremony effortless and intimate and easy to understand for our guests who had never heard of the tradition. Alex really is the perfect officiant for your event. We could go on and on singing his praises! Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted because of him. We truly felt understood as a couple by Alex. You will not regret booking him, I promise! What are you waiting for!?

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 21 - 50 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant for my son’s Viking themed wedding. Alex was professional and personable, which put my son and his bride at ease. The ceremony was light and good hearted, but sweet and touching at the same time! He was so easy to work with beforehand and walked them through all the confusion of picking their vows and the flow of their ceremony. All our guests had nothing but compliments for the ceremony that Alex performed, which gave the couple the wedding they wanted without offending anyone’s religious beliefs. Nothing but pleased!
