The Wedding Officiant - A necessary and important part of your Wedding! I offer my services because I love being a part of two becoming one. It is an honor and a privilege to be invited into this sacred, private, and intimate affair. It's not for the money - there isn't very much - it's for the love of watching two share their deepest feelings for each other and begin their new life together.
I am a independent, non-denominational Wedding Officiant providing reasonably priced wedding ceremonies that are uniquely your own. A graduate of the University of Maryland, I can create a ceremony that captures your level of spirituality, if any. Each ceremony is tailored to your wishes, desires, and beliefs, without judgment or prejudice. Services are held wherever and whenever you’d like. Short notice or planned in advance, your service will get the time and attention it needs to reflect who you are, what you believe, and the essence of your feelings for each other. Please let me help you plan the ceremony YOU would like. All without judgment, questions, prejudice, or requirements. Let the ceremony be JUST ABOUT YOU and only FOR YOU. Read less

Chris is an absolutely amazing officiant. He went above and beyond to help us create our dream wedding. We met him on skype for an interview and instantly connected with him. We met in person with him for lunch 6 months prior to our wedding and spented a few hours talking with him. He easily learned who we are as individuals and a couple. He then worked with us in the weeks leading up to our day to finalize our ceremony. He was always willing to find and offer ideas for us. He helped us create an extremely unique ceremony that all our guests told us was by far the best ceremony. The ceremony celebrated us and did a great job at connecting our audience to us. Words can't describe how pleased and impressed I am with Chris's hard work!!

Would recommend him 100% for your ceremony!

Chris met with us a couple times and we skyped here and there. He and his wife even made us dinner one night. Chris went over every detail of our wedding. He answered every email and phone call promptly. We wanted a short wedding with some Irish influence. Chris mentioned an Irish tradition called hand fasting which was pretty neat. We had several compliments about our wedding and I know it was due to the great job Chris did. We would highly recommend him.

On a side note, we almost went with another guy we found on the internet but he would not agree to be at our rehearsal. He said he didn't need to be there. After going through this I would say you absolutely need to have your wedding officiant or Pastor at your rehearsal. They need to be there to run the show. My wife and I would have been lost without Chris there.

Chris married my husband and I on June 22 of this year and he did an absolute amazing job! His eagerness to learn every detail of our relationship to making sure that everything was about us on our day was more than we could have ever asked for. He truly personalized our ceremony to us...even surprising us with a personal touch during the ceremony...a red solo cup and miller chill (what brought us together in the first place :)). All of our guests raved about Chris and how unique yet personal he made the ceremony. We cannot thank Chris and his team enough!!

From the first day we met Chris we knew that our wedding was going to be special. Chris put in the time and effort to meet with us and get to know who we were. This isn't your ordinary officiant because he cares and understands that this is the most important day of our lives. He was extremely flexible with our demands and truly made our day memorable and special for everyone. We asked him to do an Irish handfasting for us and he did an exceptional job explaining everything and catering it towards us. Everything that he did was perfect and I would recommend him to everyone. Thank you Chris for making our special day perfect.

Chris was great! From the moment we contacted him 8 months before the wedding he was all in for us. He's willing to work with whatever you want, offers up great suggestions based on your ideas, and crafts amazing ceremonies!

He was so easy to work with. We Skyped with him, met him, emailed him, and the lines of communication were always open.

Come rehearsal and wedding, he is professional and prepared, and makes sure that bride and groom have very little to worry about. We had a few last minute processional tweaks, and he accomodated without any issue.

You're getting amazing bang for your buck with Chris, we highly recommend him!

Travis and Alex: Thanks SO MUCH! It was a great day and my record of NO RAIN continues!

You're a lucky guy Travis -- Alex looked STUNNING in her Gown -- I guess she's pretty lucky too :-). All the Bridesmaids were stunning, and you were pretty cute :-).

All my best to both of you and thanks for letting me a part of your Wedding Day.

Chris made our wedding day a day to remember! He made it so it was a special day for us; not just your typical wedding ceremony! He was so excited to marry us and he was so involved in all he did;He became apart of our family and he did an amazing job! He didn't just do his job as the officiant, he went above and beyond for the both of us! He was always available to answer any questions, very easy to talk to, cared about us and our values on the meaning of marriage, he was very professional but added humor to make us laugh, he took over and made all of our fears and worries disappear! It is like he lifted the weight off of us and we just followed his lead and our day went so smooth and was just amazing! What he said at our ceremony I will never forget because it was special for us and he did a fantastic job! Thank you Chris for doing more than I ever expected! You were fantastic and I will continue to recommend you to everyone, not only as an officiant but let everyone know your a great person as well! Thank u! The Mantles

We found Chris approximately one month before our wedding, and we wish that we had contacted him sooner. We received a phone call shortly after inquiring about his availability. Chris was very friendly and accomodating, even with the short notice. He was very focused on making our ceremony flow the way we wanted it to and was very helpful during the planning process. We even challenged him by incorporating an Irish Handfasting ritual into the ceremony, and he delivered. Thank you Chris for doing an outstanding job! We'll recommend you to anyone!

Chris was the best! He's super personable, we instantly liked him when we found him on here. He'll make your ceremony exactly what you want it, or if you don't know he will help you create it together. He was extremely flexible, and I was able to get ahold of him less than 12 hours away from the ceremony to add last minute details.

Our ceremony was very intimate and we had no photographer; we originally asked him if he would just snap a couple pictures for us on our smartphones. Instead, he asked us if he could bring his wife to snap pictures throughout the entire thing and then some. She had a nice DSLR and took as many pictures as we wanted. Not only that, but she had some great ideas for shots and every one we saw so far turned out awesome! His wife was just as personable and awesome as Chris himself.

Overall, everything went perfectly and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. He was extremely reasonably priced, especially for the level of service and personallity you're getting. On a final note, I have him a 5-star in professionalism, but that's not the best way to describe him. Not because he is unprofessional, but because he treated us more like friends than a "professional" business transaction - so rare and awesome to find in any field today!
