I am an ordained minister dedicated to creating the wedding of your dreams! You should have the wedding you desire on one of the most important days of your life! My name is Reverend Martin Christopher, and I would like to say thank you for considering me to officiate your wedding. It will be an honor to perform your wedding ceremony.

The ceremony and vows should reflect the uniqueness of your relationship and capture the celebration of the love which brought you to this memorable moment in your lives. There are a variety of civil, non-denominational, multi-faith, religious and non-religious ceremonies available to choose from, or I can help you create a customized wedding ceremony that honors and reflects the love you share. It’s YOUR wedding day – have the ceremony you want!

Ceremonies can be traditional or innovative; I will lovingly perform the ceremony you choose. I will travel to your location and be happy to help you with any questions you may have. Even if it is a last minute ceremony, I will do my best to officiate your special day.

I will gladly provide a script of vows prior to any ceremony and/or help write new ones per your direction. Please let my 33 years of wedded bliss help make your first special day together a happy and memorable one.

We were so happy to have Reverend Martin as part of our wedding day. He went above and beyond what we expected. He met with us in person to discuss our ceremony plans which made us more comfortable. Then, when we edited our ceremony MANY, MANY times he always sent us a new copy within a couple of days. When we decided to do personalized vows he sent us articles on how to write them and when we were having trouble finding wording for the sand ceremony he sent us samples and let us tweak them to make them our own. He stayed in touch with us throughout our planning and the ceremony was one thing I knew I didn't have to stress about. On our wedding day everything went beautifully. I am so happy we chose Reverend Martin and would highly recommend him to anyone!

Reverend Martin made our wedding day as special as it was intended to be. It was as if we had known him all our lives. Prior to the ceremony, he made a point of staying connected with us while understanding our busy schedules and the stress of planning a wedding. You could feel God's love resonate through the room when he performed our ceremony and prayed for us and with us. I am thrilled we selected reverend Martin as our Officiant, it was as if our own Pastor had performed the ceremony. You will not be disappointed.
