Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I fully customize each ceremony for the couple. You as a couple get full approval on the ceremony script. I send the personalized script to each couple after we either meet or chat on the phone. My pricing is all-inclusive including rehearsals, meetings in person, ceremony revisions, and calls. I am always available to the couple for their special day. I have never missed a wedding or canceled on a couple. I love watching the joy in the eyes of the Bride and Groom as they are getting married. It is an honor to be part of a couple's special day. After almost 10 years and over 1,000 weddings I thought I would reflect back on all the different ceremonies that I have done. In addition to the usual parts of a wedding I have done: Unity Candle Unity Sand Unity Cross Unity Cords Communion Wine and Love Letter box Jumping the broom 13 Coins The lasso I’ve done weddings as small as just me and the bride to groom to 100’s of people attending. I’ve been to almost every wedding venue in North Texas. Some of these multiple times. I have been booked as far out as a year and on occasion filled in at the last moment for pastors that canceled at the last minute.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer a discount to first responders and military active and veterans. I also offer a discount for weddings that are small, typically less than 10 people.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After you decide to hire me I will create a draft ceremony for you to review. Each ceremony is personlized to the couple and approved by the couple prior to the ceremony. I typically like to meet the couple beforehand, however I do understand that we all lead busy lives. If we can't meet prior to the ceremony I will be there early to work with you both. My fee is all inclusive and I don't expect to be paid until after the ceremony

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an Ordained Pastor and a college graduate.
