I enjoy working with couples to plan the ceremony they most want. I specialize in meaningful ceremonies that can be traditional, trendy, religious or non religious. My goal is for you to have a wedding ceremony that you love and that reflects your love and relationship as well as one that others will fondly remember.

I'm available to meet multiple times to make sure your ceremony has the features and wording that means the most to you. I have a wide range of resources to help you choose your wording and features and I'm available via email/cell and text. In addition I work with LOCAL, State, Military and LONG DISTANCE couples from as far away as Europe to plan their weddings via SKYPE. Most couples prefer this method because of the privacy and ease of scheduling.

Please visit my website for a complete profile. I absolutely LOVE working with my wedding couples. I hope to hear from you, but book early since my calendar for spring, summer and fall always fills up early. Please include the date, location and venue of your wedding when contacting me. I do have associate ministers who I highly recommend if I'm booked on your wedding day. Read less

Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes and I often do! Parks, Farms, Ballrooms, Chapels, Gardens, Restaurants, Resorts, Inns and more!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I dress as the couple wishes from very formal cleric garb to very casual attire depending on the type of wedding. Usually I wear all black suiting or suiting to match the wedding colors. Friend me on Facebook to see over 1,000 photos of my weddings.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely! In fact I provide sample materials to help my couples figure out the perfect wording for their ceremony. They can pick and choose just the right words. My PLANNING GUIDES are instrumental in helping my couples with all the elements of their ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, I do. And, I can help them with that if they wish. My PLANNING GUIDES offer them lots of suggestions to help them craft just the right wording.

My ceremonies range from 25 minutes to 45 minutes depending on all the elements the couple wants included.

No, I don't require premarital counseling. I do offer marriage coaching if the couple wishes it, but it is not required. Our planning meetings are private and are held usually via Skype, FaceTime or GoogleChat.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Absolutely! It's important to me that the ceremony look beautiful. Unless the couple has hired a rehearsal coordinator, I usually include that in my fee structure and services.
Do you supply a sound system?
No. The venue or the DJ provides the sound system. For informal ceremonies I do have the capability of providing a sound system.

She was wonderful. Very concerned abut OUR day even though she had some major challenges in her own life that week. She made sure we were comfortable and that helped lower our stress levels greatly during the day.

I would highly recommend her services to anyone. Without her we would have been lost since she also assisted us in our planning of other parts of the day.

Very wonderful woman and her husband/assistant was also awesome.

Rev. Chris was so wonderful to work with. She is so organized and really did a wonderful job making sure our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be. She had great ideas, an abundance of valuable info to share with us and was so flexible around my fiancé's busy schedule. Skype meetings were so convenient and even though we did not meet in person until the day of the wedding, I had no worries that everything would run smoothly, which it did. Thank you so much Rev. Chris for making our day a true joy. So many of our guests also commented on how much they enjoyed you and your husband and what a wonderful job you did making our ceremony so personal to us. We were truly blessed to find you and are so glad you could be part of the first day of the rest of our lives together as husband and wife. Thanks again, Mike and Diana Dawson.

Rev. Christine was absolutely wonderful. She took the time to get to know us and work with us to plan a unique ceremony. She's willing to be flexible depending on your beliefs or orientation. You can tell she really cares about what she does and enjoys it. We were so happy to be her "lovebirds"!

She also coordinated the rehearsal and made sure everyone knew what to do, which made our ceremony stress-free. When the ceremony finally came, we were able to just relax and enjoy it thanks to the Rev's preparations. Thanks!!!
