Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony

No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, I typically Officiate at private homes, wedding chapels, private homes and a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Attire to fit the ceremony; from casual shorts and snappy Hawaiian shirts to Tuxedo, my usual attire is suit and tie.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely! Every wedding ceremony is written and personalized for our couples. No two ceremonies are the same just as no two couples are exactly alike. We pride ourselves in delivering ceremonies that fit our couples and meet with their every wish.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Of course couples are welcome to write their own vows, or together we'll create vows that speak from the heart. And, if couples prefer a simpler approach, we can use traditional and the vows we all know and have heard others make.

Our collection of readings are suggestions, and most have been brought to us by couples in the past. We'll share them as a starting point and couples are welcome to have their favorites included in the ceremony.
How long are your ceremonies?
Most of our ceremonies are 15-20 minutes. Some will run longer because of special requests and a sometimes, couples prefer a shortened version. Once again, our ceremonies are personalized for every couple.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, we can always suggest a good counselor if a couple would like premarital counseling but there's no requirement in Texas and we hope all of our couples have a positive and upbeat future in mind.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, we'll make sure our schedule includes your rehearsal if you wish. It's no problem.
Do you supply a sound system?
No, sound systems we leave to the venue.

My (now) Husband and I reached out to Chaplain Stan for our intimate wedding ceremony. We were a bit behind schedule trying to find someone to marry us, and Chaplain Stan made room for us in him schedule. He spent time with the both of us to get to know us before we made any commitments. He is a very kind and receptive man and captured who we were as people and as a couple. He was on time the day of our ceremony and when our 9 month old daughter decided to chime in and add a few "words" of her own during our exchange, Chaplain Stan went with it. We felt comfortable and the ceremony was very personal. We could not have asked or wished for a better experience. I would HIGHLY recommend North Texas Chaplains for your ceremony, you will not be disappointed.

We began the difficult search of trying to find a wedding officiant. I didn't have a lot of hope that we'd find someone that fit the bill. We met with Stan and that all changed. From the beginning he was warm, caring & truly listened to what kind of ceremony we were looking for. He made the process so simple and was always responsive and punctual. By the end of the wedding Stan had become like family to us. I would recommend him again & again...what a phenomenal person!

Several months before our wedding my husband and I were shopping for tuxedoes at our local Men's Warehouse, it was there that one of the sales associates highly recommended Stan Hirschman. The women spoke of Stan with high regard, she mentioned that many of the couples she has helped in the past have used his services and could not be happier with the ceremony he delivered. I took the information she gave me and went online to read reviews, there were lots and they were all wonderful not a single bad one in the bunch! After working with Stan it is so apparent why everyone loves him, he is so warm and friendly and he has a true passion for his work! My husband and I both knew after our meeting he was the perfect fit for our day, Stan was everything and more that the reviews stated and we felt after our first meeting there was no need to continue our search. During our meetings the three of us sat chatting and discussing what we had envisioned for our day and we enjoyed our meetings so much! Stan was so open to our ideas and he took everything we put out there and developed it into a wonderful story of our love, capturing every ones heart with his words. Guests compliment us on our ceremony saying it was "the best ceremony they have ever been to", and how refreshing it was to witness. Our ceremony had all the elements that a couple could want it was a perfect blend of tradition and non tradition, filled laughs and happy tears. Stan will help you personalize your day beyond your expectations, I promise if you are looking for a chaplain Stan will not disappoint I would recommend him to everyone getting married!

We found Mr. Hirschman through this site after various searches on other wedding websites. My, now husband, and I were looking for someone nonjudgmental, friendly, professional and who wanted to make the ceremony reflect us. Stan did exactly those things. I was pleasantly pleased when I first spoke with him on the phone to set up a meeting time in person. He was so well-spoken and had a calming nature about him. We were originally very nervous because neither my husband nor I are very religious people and had always heard the only ways to find someone to officiate a wedding was either already knowing a pastor through a church (being a church-goer) or finding a justice of the peace. Neither idea sounded appealing to us, nor did it fit us. Anyway, Stan was very accommodating and understanding when we explained our dilemma (that we didn't go to church, but our families both were ranging from mildly to very religious people). He pleased both our families as well as us by intertwining a few prayers, without making it "churchy" or turning our ceremony into a sermon. He met with us twice, first to get an idea of who we are, just a chat to make sure we wanted to go ahead with essentially "hiring" him (he was NOT pushy in any way). Our second meeting was to chat about what it was we were looking for in our ceremony. He brought all kinds of writings and ideas to use for the ceremony, all very thoughtful and touching. It was definitely a painless process and easier than expected. I'm SO glad we ran into Stan Hirschman. He most definitely is worth your time and will be sure to please. Such a sweet man with a passion for his work. Thanks Stan!

I contacted Chap. Stan Hirschman after reading his reviews on the website. All those glowing reviews are absolutely true. After contacting Stan to see if he was available, I gave him my son's phone number. He asked if I had any input and I said absolutely not. The ceremony was completely up to Andrew and Jessica. He immediately called Andrew and they set up a meeting for the very next day. The meeting lasted about 2 or 3 hours. Stan wanted to know everything about the bride and groom. They were so pleased, there was no need to interview anyone else. Andrew and Jessica hired him on the spot. I met Stan at the rehearsal. I felt like he had been a family friend for years! The ceremony was beautiful. He included things that Andrew and Jessica had discussed with him at the meeting. You would have thought Stan had known these two for a long time. He's great! You can't go wrong with Stan. One other thing, he is honest and up front with his fee. No added on expenses for anything. If my other son ever decides to tie the knot, I know where to get the best chaplain anywhere!

I was very impressed with our Chaplain Stan Hirschman from the get go. Stan blew me away with his knowledge on what I (or any bride to be) would want to make our ceremony special. Stan spent quality time with me, well over an hour, just listening to me talk about the love i shared with my fiance. All so he could familiarize himself with our love story and make it come alive at our ceremony. Stan was very sensitive to all of our wishes regarding what would be said or expressed during the ceremony as well. I really felt that Stan went above and beyond to make sure my fiance and i would have exactly the type of ceremony we desired. Our ceremony was beautiful and we'll always have the best memories to reflect on. I would highly reccomend Stan to be your wedding officiant, he's the best out there!

Chaplain Stan Hirschman officiated at my wedding. The wedding was a surprise to our family and friends and Chaplain Stan did an excellent job keeping it a surprise from our guests! He deserves an academy award for the role he played as my husband's "boss". Chaplain Stan listened to our love story. He personalized our vows and his prayer really told our story. There was not a dry eye in the room. Chaplain Stan Hirschman gave our wedding the personal touch and true meaning of why I married the love of my life. Thank you Chaplain Stan, my cup runneth over!

A week ago, Stan Hirschman was the officiant for our wedding and I can highly recommend him. Everything about the process was smooth and professional. My wife and I wanted a simple ceremony with one exception, it was a surprise to our family. Stan played it to the T.

The interview was very good. He immediately put us both at ease and got to know us. We knew right away he would be a good fit for us. His wisdom and knowledge guided us through the process. During a stressful time of planning, this was very welcome.

At the ceremony, we were very pleased with the reading and the vows. Stan took a great deal of care in this aspect. The entire ceremony was exactly what we needed and it really showed his attention to detail. We felt like by the time we were done, Stan was almost family.

Our experience with Stan and North Texas Chaplains was entirely positive. We will recommend him to others, and if we had to do it all over we'd definitely pick Stan again.

My husband's pastor was originally supposed to do our wedding but cancelled on us about a month before due to a scheduling conflict. We frantically scrambled to find an officiant and came across Stan, and we ARE SO GLAD WE DID!!! Stan was perfect in our wedding. Several of our family members even mentioned to us how much they loved Stan. He is genuine, kind, open-minded and really strives to make your ceremony all about you and your story. He met with us a couple weeks before the wedding and went over in detail what we would like to be said, the scriptures we would like read, and even offered help, if we wanted it, to write our vows. He spent time getting to know us and was genuinely interested in our story and our lives. We could not be happier with the way everything worked out and so happy we found Stan.

Chap. Hirschman made our wedding very special. He took the time to learn about us, so that he could customize the ceremony for us. He was very flexible and willing to spend the time needed to plan the ceremony that we wanted. Chap. Hirschman followed up with us in advance of the date of the ceremony, to assure that everything was "on track". And, he was very prompt the day of the ceremony.

You will not be disappointed if Chap. Hirschman officiates your wedding!

Stan Hirschman from North Texas Chaplains was the Officiant at our wedding ceremony and we could not have chosen a better Officiant!

My wife and I planned our Texas wedding from Arizona and Japan so alot of the details had to be worked out via email and Stan was very helpful in this regard.

I found a few officiants on the internet and sent them all requests for information. We chose Stan because he was the only one who answered his phone and after speaking with him for a few minutes I knew he was the one for us. On the phone he was attentive and listened to how we envisioned our wedding. My wife is Japanese and I am originally from Texas so I didn't want a ceremony that was too heavy on the religious aspect. Stan took that ball and provided some ideas for how to have a beautiful ceremony that blended both cultures.

We completed the paperwork and didn't actually meet Stan until two days before our wedding. Stan went through our timeline with us to make sure we had all the details covered and suggested a beautiful poem to be read during the ceremony. During the meeting, my wife mentioned a Japanese wedding custom and Stan was very open to including this into our ceremony. He helped us figure out where we could blend in this Japanese twist into our ceremony. The custom was the "San-San-Kudo" which is a custom where the bride and groom drink sake to honor their relatives, themselves, and their future. We decided it would fit in very nicely with our Unity candle ceremony. Stan pulled off this addition without a hitch.

Throughout the entire process from planning to the actual ceremony, I got the feeling that Stan truly cared about making our ceremony special! He does not provide a cookie-cutter type ceremony. He actually takes the time to ensure that your ceremony is personalized to you.

Thanks Stan for a wonderful and memorable ceremony!

Stan was awesome. He arrived on time and showed professionalism in his work. Before the wedding, we met twice and went over the details. He made sure I know my wording and he helped me so I don't struggle at the altar. He made sure I was on tracK and sent me reminders. I would highly recommend him as your officient.

Stan was a dream to work with. He was extremely professional, yet also very friendly. My husband and I are not religious, and Stan did not judge us or make us feel uncomfortable. We met Stan about four months before the wedding, and he spent a large amount of time getting to know us and trying to understand our relationship. He threw a few personal details into our ceremony, and really made it about love instead of religion (which was what we wanted). I'm sure he can do a really religious ceremony, but as we didn't want that, he was wonderful. I would recommend him as an officiant for anyone, as he seemed to be very adament about making our ceremony personalized for us - and who wouldn't want that? Thanks Stan!

My husband and I are in our fifties and wanted a small yet meaningful elopement wedding. I talked to Stan several times on the phone and we immediately "clicked". Stan listened to our story and was enthusiastic and personable when I talked about our plans for a small wedding. We corresponded by phone and e-mail to secure the details of the ceremony. By the time the wedding day came, Stan arrived at our home early as promised and even had printed a poem I wanted to read (I had too but it was nice he thought about doing this). The ceremony was beautiful and meaningful and Stan was very personable and made us feel very comfortable. In short, the wedding ceremony exceeded our expectations and we are very happy we had Stan be our wedding officiant.
