Choosing a wedding officiant is a big decision. My ministry offers a welcoming, open approach to crafting a reverent and joyful wedding ceremony that meets your needs, not the requirements of any particular religion, faith or creed. Whether you practice a particular faith or consider yourself spiritual but not religious or secular, I will help you celebrate your wedding with grace and style.
You’ve already taken the most important step in the journey toward the wedding ceremony of your dreams by exploring my website. If you are interested in booking me or learning more, just fill out the form on the contact page or give me a call or send me a text.
The next step is for us to have an initial conversation, either in person or via video chat. During that conversation, we’ll explore if I am the right wedding officiant for you (I probably am). I’ll ask to hear your love story and what you are wanting for your wedding ceremony. I’ll tell you about how I work to craft ceremonies and answer questions about the process.
Should you want to make a booking official after that conversation (and I think you will), we will talk dates and timelines. We’ll schedule a 2nd time to meet either in person or via video chat.
The day of the wedding (and the rehearsal too, if you have one), you will be happy you decided to have an experienced minister as your wedding officiant. I will not only be professional and organized, but pastoral. I will coordinate all aspects of the ceremony with musicians and wedding planners. If needed I will reign in rowdy attendants or calm anxious parents.
After the ceremony I will make sure your marriage license is filled out correctly, sign it and mail it to the town or city clerk’s office for you so you’ll be legally wed.
If you are ready to schedule a wedding or an appointment call or text me at (508)-344-3668 or click here to fill out my contact form.

WEDDING CEREMONY & REHEARSAL
Officiate a Personalized Ceremony – I will meet with you to help you craft a professional and personalized wedding ceremony based on your background, religious beliefs, and special circumstances. I bring many resources to assist you from music to readings to prayers to various suggestions for exchanging rings and vows. I will be available to you via phone, text, and email for questions and concerns right up to the wedding day. I will officiate the ceremony in a professional, reverent, and celebratory manner.
Conduct Rehearsal: In addition to the ceremony, I will also conduct a wedding ceremony rehearsal for you. This option is recommended for very involved ceremonies.
Renewal of Vows: I will help you craft a special ceremony to mark a milestone anniversary.
Because pre-marital counseling can reduce the risk of divorce by up to 30%, I offer (but do not require) the Prepare-Enrich Marriage Preparation Program: I will conduct the Prepare-Enrich assessment and lead you in a few sessions to process its results.
A wedding, although wonderful, romantic, and spectacular is a one-time event on one day. Marriage, however, is a long-term commitment. Therefore, I strongly recommend that all couples participate in some form of pre-marital education or counseling. Many therapists and counselors, especially licensed marriage and family therapists, offer this service. I offer a pastoral counseling preparation using the Prepare-Enrich program. You can learn more about Prepare-Enrich from this video introduction or at their website.
