Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. Weddings, Vow renewals, Funerals, and wedding planning
Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.
A. My last three weddings were actually just signings. I met my couples here at my local coffee shop to sign the papers for them to make it legal and then they were able to bring the documents in to the courthouse to file it. Sometimes people just need to marry fast for insurance purposes or something and have a large ceremony at a later date. In cases like this, I have done both for the couple. I have done a signing, and then six months later we have done the full wedding ceremony, so that is an option also.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Ask traveling Officiants if they charge mileage because most do and it can add up to a hearty fee.
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. If officiant is needed for the rehearsal, and if so, do you want officiants to "run" it for you? Venue address, distance is the key, you should look for an Officiant near your venue for the optimal price. Driving long distances is always affects the fee.
Approx. guest count
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I really enjoy creating the ceremony that the clients want. I love to include different cultural elements along with old traditions to make the perfect memory.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. A wedding day is always a happy and joyous occasion, so it is such a pleasure to be apart of families having one the most memorable moments in life.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. An Officiant is not a religious title nor is a Minister. Anyone can minister to anyone and it requires no degree as a Pastor of a Church is required to have. I am ordained by a Church ( credentials are registered) that encompasses all religions and I do believe that religion should not divide people, but bring them closer together for a common good and sense of peace. I myself am NON RELIGIOUS but will and can accommodate all/any cultural customs desired. I am also same sex marriage friendly and have done many lovely ceremonies for the gay community.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I got my degree in Psychology/Human services and wanted to do something positive and something I enjoyed. I love to do pre-marital counseling and meet new people on such a happy day.
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. I have a Psychology degree in human services and I like to attend local wedding shows to keep up on the new trends and colors of the up and coming wedding season.
Q. What is your greatest strength?
A. My greatest strength is making couple feel at ease, and comfortable during the sometimes stressful time. I always try to listen and give the couple the ceremony they have always wanted and guide them so the ceremony is special and interactive. i have endless ideas for the couples who want to be different, and I also love to bring in old ceremony traditions, such as hand-fasting, to give couples a unique experience!
Q. Write your own question and answer it.
A. Why does it say you have only been hired 3 times?
Unfortunately, it depends on the customer to go back and click "hired" and they frequently do not even if they have left a review. So please check the hired button if we decide to plan things out together.
