Being ordained in one mainline church tradition AND evolving into a Inter-Faith "Integral" minister is my personal and profesional story. I bring 30 years of training, experience and transformative energy to you as a couple in order to bring YOUR background and current values into YOUR wedding ceremony as YOU envision it. Your wedding day will "soar to the heights" at the appointed hour. It will be not just a transcendent experience for everyone present but a powerful collaborative act for both of you.

As your Wedding Celebrant I work with you.

I design and write the entire narrative of your wedding ceremony collaborativey on your schedule. I edit the narrative draft by draft according to your instructions until it is perfect for you both.

I communicate with you both conveniently - in person, by phone, email, USPS, text, Skype, vidoe Gmail, etc

With my own custom tools, I help you write your custom vows, if you choose.

I'll seamlessly incorporate other ancient or modern rites or rituals in your ceremony in consult with you.
With the words and elements you've chosen I both rehearse and lead the ceremony in your select venue.
My Premarital Counseling enhances your engagement. You can have not just a good start but a great start!

Your weddng planning AND your relationship benefit from this extra commitment to yourselves as a couple, not just during your enagement but in the process of "marrying" over a life time. The focus may include subjects like how to better communicate, resolve dsagreements, view your individual spirituality, take turns leading in your relationhip, make plans for the fture. I offer a free meeting with you to select your topics. What are your issues? How can a professional third party help you?

At no charge I also can connect you to a certified financial plannner or newlyweds. What a wedding gift this is!

I offer other ceremony creations as well. I design ways to celebrate life transitions such as Career Changes, Engagement Parties, Baby Blessings, Adoptions, Christenings, Personal Development Achievements, Home Blessings, etc. Each may be ritualized to bring note and attention to your deepest values.Choose a wedding Officiant early in your weddng planning.

We hired Charles for our wedding after seeing his name on Weddingwire.com and having an initial meeting with him. We didn’t know exactly what to expect since there weren’t many reviews, but I must say what a great decision – he did an amazing job! Charles guided us through the whole process. We had several meetings with him to discuss the ceremony contents and flow. He was very engaged with us and made us feel like our wedding was important to him. We weren’t sure exactly what we wanted the ceremony to be like and Charles gave us some great ideas. My now husband and I come from different cultural backgrounds and Charles tailored our wedding ceremony to the uniting of these different cultures. It made our wedding so personal and unique for us. We had some uncommon rituals we wanted to include that were specific to an area of India my husband is from. Charles was not familiar with these rites, but read about them and incorporated them into the ceremony for us, and was able to describe the rites to our guests as we performed them. I admit, we were a little slow in providing him requested information for various aspects of the ceremony but he still made everything come together just perfectly. Charles also fit the ceremony perfectly into our timeframe. His voice was clear, loud and projected well in the church. He was an utmost professional. We are so glad we came across him - we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. I highly recommend Charles to officiate your wedding.

Phone meetings were a little difficult to truly communicate. But the day went well.
