Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, I do perform non-religious ceremonies. I have done civil, prison, non-believers marriage, mixed religion, etc. My heart is in religious weddings, but my beliefs or preferences do not overshadow what the couple wants.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Generally a black suit or charcoal suit with a starched shirt and matching tie. I also have a light grey suit and pin stripe suit, with ties to match any brides color scheme. Just let me know!
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
It is the couple's wedding ceremony. I have vows to choose from if a couple wants a foundation to start with. They can add or subtract anything they like. The ceremony should always compliment the couple's personalities and their beliefs and lifestyle.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Many couples write their own vows completely, but most have used sample vows and accommodated them to fit their personalities. We have added parental honoring, unity candle, sand ceremony, and cultural or religious traditions
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Yes, I have many readings to select from, with all religions and non-religious to choose from.
How long are your ceremonies?
That depends entirely on what the couple wants.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No I do not. I am trained in family counseling though and I am happy to discuss premarital issues with a couple if desired.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, most couples like me to be at their rehearsal. Then we are all on the same page for the actual ceremony. I take an active part in the rehearsal, unless they have a wedding coordinator.
Do you supply a sound system?
DJ's seem to have the best sound system already in place.
