How did you get started doing this type of work?
Long Story I will tell you in person if you would like to know.
What types of customers have you worked with?
That is a simple answer: Weddings, as an Officiant I preform Wedding Ceremonies.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I commend our troops, they put their lives on the line to defend our freedom, a Groom just came home from oversea's and wanted this particular day, in which I was unavaliable for, he did everything in his power to have this day, so I had another Officiate take a wedding I had planned, just to make this groom happy (after all he was a hero) come to find out after the wedding, his wife also a soldier, 1 week after the weeding she was deployed overseas and he really wanted me (Mr. Joker) to officiate his wedding. Now I know why, his wife knew me, and loved the ceremony, and the way I kept in constant contact with her, and him even though he was over sea's and he loved my joking nature, he also did not want me to know she was going over sea's once he returned home. That made me feel extreamly great, and loved......
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would advise a customer to shop around for a vendor/wedding officiant. There are many out there, meet with a few, see if you are compatable, if there is chemistry, ask what their background's are, and how many wedding's they have done, and get to know your officiant.
