INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Non-religious Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Absolutely - I will marry you anywhere.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Typically a fashionable, dark colored business suit, dress shirt and tie, in tones that fit with your wedding colors (see photos above). For more casual or beachy events, I like Tommy Bahama's silk or linen "beach dressy" shirts and khaki slacks with either stylish sandals or barefoot. Whatever fits in best with what your wedding party is wearing. I don't wear robes, gowns, cassocks, collars or any traditional religious clothing.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, I am.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, I think it is an excellent idea. Your vows should reflect the unique character and qualities of your relationship. You know what promises you need to hear from each other to feel secure in your marriage. And those promises might or might not mirror each other word for word. Whether you repeat your vows phrase by phrase as your officiant gives them to you, or simply speak them spontaneously from your hearts to each other, they should feel comfortable and honest to you.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I start with a standard ceremony and several modules that can be inserted if you like. But nothing's carved in stone. We can work together to create anything you want.
How long are your ceremonies?
Typically 10 to 20 minutes max.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No such requirement. I do like to phone-conference or meet with couples free of charge at my home, simply to get better acquainted and talk about their wedding plans. It's very relaxed and social -- nothing like counseling.

E.J. Was great! We met with him and knew right away he was the officiant for us! We were looking for a non religious wedding since we have so many different religions within our families combined and didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. He did an amazing job! He also looks so professional and even went out of his way to match our wedding colors! I LOVED that! Also, my husband's family is very religious and they didn't even notice it was a non religious wedding because it all sounded so beautiful that you would of never noticed that religious details were not added. His personality is awesome and one just feels super comfortable around him. He took a big part in the wedding that we will never forget and we are so happy we chose him. Thank you!

EJ was great. His personality matched ours and our expectations beautifully. He is experienced and professional. He provides a general outline of ideas and then will supply a suggested transcript, and from there the options are limitless. He is able and willing to customize the ceremony in any direction. Not only are the words and sentiments moving, but his performance is flawless. We are so happy we ended up choosing to make him a part of our wedding.

Our wedding was a destination wedding and E. J. was very helpful in guiding us to the perfect location and giving us tips for prepping for our sand ceremony. He went back in forth with us through email coming up with the perfect script for our ceremony. We also spoke on the phone several times confirming the details of our wedding. He was very professional throughout the entire process. E. J. was the perfect officiant for our wedding!

Hi Jenna & Mike. Delightful hearing from you. Couldn't have asked for a prettier day or better lighting for your wedding on the beach. Your photographer must have gotten some beautiful shots. It was great being with you on your special day. Be happy, and take good care of each other.

We got married at Pensacola Beach, FL and live in Atlanta, GA so I thought it'd be hard trying to coordinate with an officiant in Alabama. We found it quite the opposite - E.J. made the whole planning phase almost effortless on our part. We wanted a non-religious ceremony, yet my finance' is jewish so E.J. incorporated the breaking of the glass and mazal tov at the end of the ceremony beautifully. We also did a beach wedding, so we did a sand unity instead of a candle unity. We also wrote our own vows. We got so many compliments from the guests and family on how great of a speaker E.J. was and that he did such a wonderful job with the ceremony. One of the best vendors we had - very professional and great personality. The ceremony and our officiant were perfect! A++
