Wedding? Commitment ceremony? Renewing your vows? Hand-fasting? Spiritual joining? Elopement? Need a minister without a church affiliation? Theme wedding: Scottish, Irish? (I own my own formal Scottish kilt, jacket, etc.)
Additional services: Baptisms, christenings, naming ceremonies, and funerals.

I can help you create that meaningful ceremony that expresses who you are as a couple and as individuals, I am very tolerant of all religious and spiritual beliefs and therefore can create a memorable ceremony that reflects your personal religious choices, beliefs and values.

Personalized ceremonies are my specialty; however standard marriage services are available as well. Either quick and simple or embellished with traditions and pomp and circumstance, you end up with a 'ceremony done your way.' Read less

Rev Russ was amazing! We honestly couldn't have found a better reverend to officiate our wedding! Even our guests felt he was like family! He had a great, tailored approach that fit our wedding style. He was on board with whatever we wanted. Thanks again Rev Russ!

Reverend Russ did an A+ job at officiating our wedding. We filled out his detailed form a few months before the wedding to give him an idea of our vision. About a week before the wedding, we had an in depth chat with Russ to give him a better idea about who we are as a couple and what we wanted from the ceremony. We were feeling a lot of pre-wedding stress from all the many last minute things on our checklist. After talking with Russ that day, we were so relieved that we chose him to officiant. He was warm, funny, and understood exactly what we wanted. Russ came to our rehearsal (and was probably the only person on time for that, including the wedding party). He put us at ease and got us ready for the big day. As an officiant, he gave the ceremony a great tone of love and community with just the right amount of humor (but not too corny). He prepared a beautiful yet to the point and brief ceremony that was exactly what we envisioned. We definitely recommend Rev Russ for anyone looking for an officiant in the area.

Reverend Russ was amazing! From the start he took the time to talk to us and get to know us. He had a lot of great ideas for readings and the ceremony in general. He arrived well ahead of time for both the rehearsal and the ceremony. We had a lot of people come up to us afterward and ask "where did you find him!?". I'm so glad our venue recommended him!

Wow!! Rev. Russ was great. He was EXACTLY what we needed! Rev. Russ took the time to get to know us as we discussed working with us. He shared his experiences with us and he knew how to keep things light and easy going. He was very flexible and we chose him over an officiant from my wife's home church.

At the rehearsal and ceremony he arrived early, was well dressed and looked the part very well. But again, he kept things light. At the rehearsal he took over and gave direction where needed without stepping on any toes. We were able to keep our crying to a minimum thanks to his personality during the ceremony. Rev. Russ was perfect for us and our ceremony!

Thanks so much!

If you come across Russ your search for an officiant is finally over ! Excellent personality with professionalism as well as humor ! I had a loud obnoxious group and he pulled through it and blended in perfectly ! The best compliment I can give are the guests reactions when they all said where did you find this guy (in a good way) ? We all enjoyed his services as well as making an extra effort to meet with us prior to the wedding date for accuracy ! If he is available book him !! You wil not regret it ! Thank you Russ for a beautiful wedding ! Jason and Alex
P.S. It didn't rain ! (Thank you )

"Rev Russ" was absolutely incredible in making our day as special as it was in Lake Geneva. If I could describe Russ in one word it would certainly be "unique" in the sense he delivers wisdom, spirituality and guidance in a way that younger couples easily understand. An excellent combination of eloquence and genuine wit - he certainly kept the crowd engaged throughout the ceremony and kept us both laughing (and most importantly calm!) Russ was extremely flexible and one of a kind.
