Dear Couple to be United,

Congratulations on your engagement! You are about to embark on one of life's most sacred adventures. Your wedding ceremony is the official start of your life together and I know how much you want it to be special and very meaningful.

My goal is to perform a ceremony that tells your love story and meets your needs, while honoring who you are, your dreams, your love and hopes! In the process of forming this very special moment I will also work with you to create a ceremony that lets your family and friends know how much you appreciate them, by expressing the very important role they play in your life. Officiating is more than a labor of love to me, it’s a sacred trust and a blessing. It is a humble, unique way of making the world a little brighter, two special people at a time.

Your wedding day will be the start of a very long walk together as one. When I am given the honor to perform a wedding I take every second of every minute of every day I get to prepare for this ceremony to the heart. Your wedding day will forever be the day that will make you the husband and the wife you so want to be. When I do a wedding I do not do it just for the wedding day but for the marriage life the two of you will have.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please contact me via phone or email to make arrangements or to discuss your wedding ceremony further. You can contact me by phone 866-990-4480 or by email at mywedding@twobecomeoneministry.com for any other information you may need for me to help bring you two together as one. Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Jewish
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes. My job is to serve the couple and to help bring the two together as one. Location doesn't matter, the place selected to have the wedding should be about the couple not me.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I wear a suit. I have a few different colors
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes. A wedding is a very important day that will always be remembered so the words the bride and groom choose to have in the ceremony are words that reflect them and there love for one another.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes. I recommend this because it makes it more personal but I do many weddings where the couples repeat after me by doing a simple vow exchange or the writing of their own.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have many samples ceremonies that have different readings in them but none of the ones I offer have to be used. The wedding has to reflect the couple not me.
How long are your ceremonies?
the average ceremony is about 15-25 minutes
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not require it but I recommend it. The way I do mine is completely different then most. The many couples I have been honored to work with that have taken the classes have really enjoyed it and have learned great news tools to use it in their marriage.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes. I really enjoy doing the rehearsals because it gives me more time to grow with the couple. I do everything I can to really get to know the couples I perform wedding for because when it times to do the weddings I don't want to be an outsider but a close friend.
Do you supply a sound system?
no

Brian was wonderful to work with. He took the time to get to know us as a couple through pre-marital counseling. We also appreciate that he was so flexible given that the first time we all arrived at the courthouse only to find out it was closed. But Brian was able to reschedule without a problem.

Brian was such a great officiant! He had officiated a friends wedding, and we loved the ceremony. So we set up a skype meeting and felt comfortable with him immediately. He sent a bunch of ceremony ideas, and we took bits and pieces from each to write our own customized ceremony. He traveled over 2 hours to attend the rehearsal, and it was very apparent he knew what he was doing. He made sure to instruct us on little details like when to hand my bouquet to my MOH, and how to flip my husband's hand over to most easily place the ring on during the ceremony. He made us all feel comfortable that the entire thing would run smoothly, and it did! We got a lot of compliments about how our ceremony felt so personal and intimate, and really showcased our personalities. I would highly recommend Pastor Brian, our ceremony was absolutely perfect!!

It's easy for me to write this review, as I think Pastor Brian was my favorite vendor! It was very important to me for my husband and I to do marriage counseling, and I wanted more than someone to officiate the wedding. When I went to Pastor Brian's website, I KNEW I had found the right person to marry us! You can tell that this is his calling, as he puts his heart and soul into not only your wedding, but your life as a married couple! I cannot begin to thank him for all he's done for us. When planning your wedding, please be sure to get him as your officiant - you will understand where I'm coming from! :)

Brian was the officiant to my wedding yesterday in Richmond, and I could not be more pleased. He was readily available to ask any questions, completely accomodating to anything I needed, and he provided an outstanding service. He was completely reasonably priced and professional. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding!

I was a non-traditional bride, in that I had wanted my bestie (who is a childrens minister) to wed us. Unfortunately, in order to make that happen, we'd had to have had a civil service, which was out of the question. I was adamant about having a Christian ceremony (even though my husband is "deist"), and we couldn't make that happen - the right way, without a pastor. Therefore, a few months before the wedding I reached out to Brian and asked him if he'd be able to work with our friend to create a custom ceremony of which they both would participate. Brian provided our marriage counselling over Skype, and worked with us over multiple Skype conversations to create a custom ceremony of which my friend officiated the first half, and he the second; our ceremony included a hand wrapping ceremony as well as a salt ceremony and was AWESOME. My uncle was quoted to say that all I needed was a few deer running through the meadow behind us, to complete the ceremony. It was - perfect. THANK YOU BRIAN!
