"Where did you find her?" That's the question asked of a recent bride by her wedding guests. They were talking about me....the officiant. They liked my presence, my personalization and my professionalism as I led the bridal couple into their vows and across a threshold into a new, committed life together.

And now you have found me also.
I’ve been a small church pastor for many years. I’ve been with families when they’ve been richer and poorer, in sickness and in health, to celebrate the births of their children and when death parted them. It gives me a special perspective on the sacred nature of wedding vows. A wedding’s not just a party, or even a beautiful ceremony. A wedding is an amazing expression of hope…of faith that we can rise above our frail human natures and create something bigger than the sum of our parts. It's my instinct to be engaged with who you are and what your unique story is.
More than speaking of love, speak of action. What is it that you promise to do and to be, with this person, for the rest of your life? Weave your love story into the story of your wedding to create a meaningful, memorable, and intimate moment for you and for your guests. Make it a moment that you will never forget. I can help you.

I offer three types of ceremonies, starting as low as $350.00. Read less

Beverly was wonderful! She worked with us from our first meeting to the day of our wedding on personalizing a ceremony script that perfectly captured who we are as a couple. She also provided so much help and guidance as we worked through the process of becoming a union down to guiding us through the ceremony itself, which was such a relief! She was such a pleasure to work with and made our day so special, I cannot recommend her enough.

We were introduced to Beverly by our wedding manager, whose wedding Beverly has also officiated. I can't emphasize how much we enjoyed working with Beverly.

Even since our first meeting at a local coffee shop, we were immediately impressed by Beverly's warmth and thorough planning.

Beverly walked us through each and every step, in additional to planning ceremony procedures, Beverly really did a lot of things "personalized" for us. She spent the time browsing our wedding site and engagement photo shoot to get to know us better. She sent over a questionnaire for us to fill out. To some extent, it's like a pre-wedding counselling. The questions made us think and look back at the paths we have taken together. Based on our answer, Beverly wrote a touching story, intertwined with her own wisdom of love, relationship and marriage, and shared with all guests at the ceremony. The story has amusing anecdotes and the guests are entertained as well.

Beverly also helped us to select a unity ritual. She is knowledge and has lots of experience. After our final pick of a sand ceremony, she gave us a lot of tips on choice of vase, sand colors, participants, etc, and she tailored her speech based on our procedures.

Our wedding venue is a bit far from Beverly's office. The rehearsal was held the day before the wedding. Beverly made all efforts to join us for the rehearsal, staying late for the rehearsal dinner, then showing up the next day, looking fully energized, classical and elegant.

Beverly coordinated with our photographer, cinematographer, musicians, to make sure everybody gets the ceremony program and music cue sheet ahead of time.

After the wedding, Beverly helped print and organize all her speeches as wedding gifts for us. We truly appreciate these wedding keepsakes and will certainly go back to read them.

We feel so lucky to have Beverly as part of our big day. It will always be a memorable experience for us.

We were married on June 6, 2015 at the Grand Cascades Lodge in NJ. We are an interfaith couple, and we didn't want a religious ceremony. We initially met Beverly on a Skype call and signed up for her pre-marrital counseling package and enlisted her for the wedding ceremony. We met with her 4 times, each for about 2 hours, before the wedding over about 5 or 6 months. She worked with our busy schedule and the short notice changes we had to make. Her style is really marriage and relationship preparation, not so much focused on couples' counseling. She used the time to get to know us and to provide us with tools and understanding for our long term partnership. She was very responsive to emails/calls and even spoke to my mother on the phone before we got started. She guided our rehearsal and was prompt and organized for the ceremony. She created a written script and allowed us to make changes where needed. She helped us figure out special touches for the ceremony and had some great ideas for us. We had hoped for a more personal non-denominational ceremony, and we were very happy with the result. She staged the ceremony so it was just the two of us in the center alone with her and our parents standing off to the side. The resulting photos are great too. Great experience overall. Rate very reasonable.

Working with Beverly on our wedding was a great pleasure and true collaboration of our vision & her expertise. From the moment we met with Beverly, we knew she was the one to marry us. She is kind and sweet yet her excitement & passion for what she does is obvious. She helped us to incorporate our unique ideas while keeping our wedding ceremony traditional, concise and enjoyable for all our guests. As someone in the wedding industry myself, I have never worked with a more professional Officiant. She made sure all our vendors and venue event contact were fully informed of our ceremony & timing & positioned us so our photographer got only the best shots of us making our commitment to one another. We could not have asked for anything more!

If there is anything you should invest in when planning your wedding it should absolutely be your marriage, that is why picking the right Officiant is a big deal, and we know we made the best choice. I instantly connected with Beverly when I found her information online, called her and ended up talking to her for 40 minutes! Beverly is so easy to talk to, so wise and insightful and I felt like I had actually known her forever from our first call. My fiancé and I decided the pre-marital counseling would be a nice addition to our pre-wedding planning, and we could not have been more right. Beverly’s counseling is perfect for modern-day couples to better understand what entering into this lifelong commitment really means, and what challenges and celebrations lie ahead. She gives a lot of wonderful advice on getting through the small and big things in life together. Beverly is very organized and takes her counseling seriously providing questions for the couple to answer that truly makes you think about your relationship and helps you learn so much about each other. The only disappointment with the pre-marital counseling is how quick each session flies by because they are so much fun. I will miss my monthly visits with Beverly to focus on the most important thing of a wedding – the bride and groom and their union together! In addition, Beverly created a beautiful ceremony for us. Her words were touching and personalized and there were not many dry eyes in the audience. I surprised my groom with my own written vows which Beverly made sure to have printed and on hand at the ceremony. In fact she had it on such beautiful card stock that now I wish I would’ve kept it! I couldn’t imagine being married by anyone else. I am so happy I chose Beverly and she made my special day perfect!

Working with Beverly absolutely made our wedding! It wouldn't have been the same without her. We loved working with her, and her warmth of character made the whole process so enjoyable and meaningful. From sitting down with her to talk about the wedding, to pre-wedding counseling, to her arrival on our wedding day, she was always wonderful to work with. She mingled with our guests so seamlessly, and they all loved her, and we loved her too. She even knew how to direct our wedding party on how to stand so as to help the photographer take great pictures, and our photographer commented on how wonderful that was. Thank you Beverly!! We cannot recommend her highly enough!

We worked with Beverly as an officiant for our wedding in May of 2014. She is an absolute pleasure to work with! We had a non-traditional wedding with a specific vision in mind and Beverly was able to work with us to customize the ceremony, readings and incorporate family members to achieve our vision.

Beverly was personal and professional from our first meeting where we knew we had a great connection all the way through ceremony and beyond to include all the final marriage license paperwork. It was clear to us and our friends and family how vested she was to ensure a great experience, even with a pending pop-up shower for our outdoor wedding!

We would recommend Beverly to anyone without hesitation.
