What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I constantly review the various state laws (I worked with the ACLU to change laws in PA a few years ago) to make certain couples I marry receive the best in advice and guidance. I also meet with my associateson a regular basis to discuss changing trends, practices and customs within wedding ceremonies. There has been many changes over the years in the way couples get married!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I enjoy being of service to others---the reason I became an officiant is because it is a wonderful way to serve others as they celebrate their love.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do whatever it takes to make certain the couple (and their guests) enjoys a wedding ceremony they will long remember with happiness.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
If I was not proud of every ceremony I perform, I would not be performing ceremonies. I try to make each ceremony better than the last---it does not matter whether I am marrying a couple with only two witnesses in my living room, or a couple with 500 guests at a luxurious ballroom. I give every ceremony my best, and as long as I give my best, I am proud of what I do!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Planning a wedding day (all the arrangements----selecting a date, a venue, a dress, shoes, flowers, food, DJ/musician/photographer, etc. etc....) involves working with many different wedding professionals---that can become a challenge and time consuming. Make certain you use a full-time officiant who is available to respond to your needs on YOUR schedule. My goal is to make your ceremony planning LESS STRESSFUL, NOT more stressful.
