Because the vows you exchange during your marriage ceremony are some of the most poignant and significant words you will ever speak in your lifetime; I help you focus on what you want your marriage ceremony to be and the tone you wish to convey.
After our initial chat, we can meet in person to learn about your love story, get to know you, and make suggestions on the best ceremony that will fit your personalities and preferences. I offer officiant services for couples who want a commitment ceremony, vow renewal ceremony, or elopement ceremony. Couples may choose from traditional, contemporary, Christian, non-denominational, spiritual, interfaith, cross-cultural, and secular ceremonies.
I am a member of The International Association of Professional Wedding Officiants (IAPWO) and licensed in Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Each ceremony I preside over is custom-made to each couple’s specifications and this has its own distinctive personality.
