Introduction: Make your wedding a memorable and joyous experience that deeply reflects who you are, and the love and dreams you share with each other. As a wedding officiant who is also an ordained interfaith minister, I work with couples of all faiths and beliefs, to design and perform wedding ceremonies that can be either spiritual, religious, humanistic-secular, nature-based, or other themes, including mixed-faith relationships - whatever the couple experiences as true for themselves.
Your wedding ceremony can be very elegant and elaborate, or very simple, or anywhere in between depending on your wishes. The actual content of the ceremony comes from our discussions. We can be as creative as you like!
Soy bilingüe. Puedo realizar la ceremonia en español o inglés o ambos.
My services as a wedding officiant include the following:
- Initial introductory conversation and ceremony overview
- In-depth initial meeting with couple to discuss wedding logistics, details of ceremony, personal faith and beliefs, the joys and challenges of your relationship, marriage beliefs and goals.
- Design and creation of ceremony.
- Completion and mailing of your marriage license
- Performing ceremony
My fee range is $295 - $395, depending on the time, travel, and complexity involved. I officiate weddings all over New England and eastern NY State.
50% deposit is required at time of signing of written agreement which spells out all commitments by me and you. The balance is due on the day of the wedding.
I am glad to answer any questions that you have. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
