Art of the Ceremony
About this pro
I was a performer and writer, so creating weddings came naturally to me. My ceremonies can be as unique as you require or something traditional and simple. It's up to you, but I am skilled at adding the right phrase or changing a word here or there to make the ceremony fit you perfectly. Also, my voice projects well, my speech is clear, and I try to look my professional best on your special day. I love creating and performing marriages and being there for couples as they begin their married lives together. I know I am joining families together and helping to start new ones. I treasure photos couples send, not only of the wedding, but often of babies that arrive soon after.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a two tiered pricing system in NYC that includes a discount fee for elopements and small weddings under 20 people. Fees vary according to time & distance of location and complexity of the ceremony. My fees tend to be average but my service to my couples never is.
- What types of customers have you worked with?No matter how simple, there's no such thing as a common type of wedding. Every wedding should be as unique as the individuals who come to me.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I can honestly say that I'm proud of every ceremony I create. I have done a range of unusual ceremonies that required more creativity sometimes. For example, at the request of a Spanish and French speaking couple (I perform weddings in those languages too) I created a Pirate Wedding. Everyone, including this pirate minister, dressed as pirates before boarding a boat that circled NYC harbor. Before ordination I was in theatre so I loved writing and performing this wedding.
