- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We'll have an initial phone call so I can catch the vision for your wedding. I'll send you an email with a form to fill out from my site along with deposit information. Once you pay the deposit, your date and time are locked in on my calendar, and once you complete the form we will meet up over Zoom to go over all the details and chat about your story more in-depth so I can create a custom crafted ceremony that is personal, fun, and meaningful for your most memorable moment.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been a pastor for over 16 years, having officiated hundreds of weddings.
