Doug was recommended to us when we were looking for someone who could officiate our wedding. We wanted to have a Christmas Eve wedding and were worried that we wouldn't be able to find someone who would sacrifice their time during the holiday for us. From the first meeting, Doug was exactly the person we wanted. He is very easy to talk to, professional, and made our ceremony exactly what we wanted it to be. We have recommended Doug to friends who are planning their wedding and have been fortunate to see him bring the same excellence to their celebrations.Apr 28, 2013
Doug officiated at my daughter's wedding last summer. He was the best! He injected enough humor with the seriousness of the vows being made. I would have Doug officiate at my wedding, if I was to get married again!!! THE BEST!!!Apr 24, 2013

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I wouldn't consider my pricing system particularly complicated, but you can see my fees on my website.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I became a wedding and funeral officiant because, when I was a parish minister those were the events at which I excelled. I discovered I have a real gift for weddings and funerals/memorials...and after leaving parish ministry, decided to put my gift to work.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Your wedding is YOUR day... Make it a celebration...have fun...be serious when necessary. And hire someone (like me) who will connect well with you...who has enough experience at this to function as officiant, wedding-coordinator, music coordinator, anything that is needed on the day of the event. I guess most of all I'd say "I'm your guy"...well, at least for the wedding and any rehearsal beforehand...
