Rev. Asa Collins Jr.
Rev. Collins was a huge help to us. We did as much as possible ourselves, and he was there to give advice anytime we asked. He met with us for an "interview", he came out to the dress rehersal and was always helpful, humurous and professional. We feel very fortunate to have had him as our officiant and would reccomend him in a heartbeat!
Asa was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. He has a great deep voice that is loud and perfect for speaking at a ceremony. Since I didn�t have a wedding coordinator, Asa was nice enough to meet with my wedding party the night before to rehearse for the ceremony the next day. I would highly recommend him!
Dr Asa Collins was the perfect person holding the ceremony for us. He made sure we meet up with him beforehand to be able to talk to us and see what is important to us.
He is an amazing person and did and awesome job with our ceremony.
Asa was very wonderful. He asked all the right questions and had all the right answers. He was very perfessional and on time. He also had a great personality. Since he is retired he performs wedding for donations. I would diffinitly recommend Asa.
Dr Rev was just perfect in every way, making our ceremony our's. And a great value too.
Dr. Asa Collins congratulates you on your upcoming wedding. He has officiated at many weddings in the Lake Tahoe/Reno area for 20 years. He is happy to send to your email address four different possible wedding ceremony wordings. Some couples will choose to use one of these in its entirety. Others will take part of one and combine that with parts from others. Couples are welcome to do as they please with these. They are even welcome to make use of these if they choose someone else to officiate. He likes to keep in touch with couples right from the first contact up to the day of the wedding. This helps to avoid being complete strangers at the wedding. It also helps to so plan the wedding that it comes off just the way the couple would like. This could be done in person, by phone or by email. He does not charge a set fee. He likes to let couples decide the amount that they would like to pay. Whatever amount they decide on and hand him after the ceremony is fine with him. He is also ready and willing to help with a wedding rehearsal if that would please the couple. He has done this many many times and it enables the wedding to come off much more smoothly. He is ready to help couples with information on how and where to pick up a marriage license. Some couples have already picked a wedding site and Rev. Collins happily officiates at a the place of the couples choosing (provided that it is within a one hour drive of Incline Village, Nevada). Other couples appreciate a recommendation from him of a wedding site. Some of these are places do not charge a fee for their use even though they might be located at a place with a magnificent view of the mountains and the lake. You can see below here a picture of such a place just five minutes away from Incline Village, Lake Tahoe. This place charges no fee because it is located on U.S. Forest Service land. It is very rare that any people are around this place because of its obscure location. Rev. Collins would be happy to give directions or lead the way to this site with the wedding party following. If the ceremony is elsewhere couples could go here with their phorographer before or after the ceremony for pics. If requested, he can recommend a professional photographer that will provide a package that is within the financial wishes of the couple.

A Yes (If the wedding is to be in Nevada the officiant must be by Nevada law a resident of NV and I am.)
Q Are you willing to meet with couples who wish to find out more about you before they choose an officiant?
A Yes. They would be welcome to meet with me in my living room or any other place of their choosing.
Q Are you familiar with vendors like photographers and florists and would you recommend any?
A After 20 years of officiating at weddings in the area - I know which ones do the most satisfactory job.
Q Would you accomodate couples who wish to have you personalize their wedding or to add a little humor.
A IF a couple request this - it can easily be done - if they would rather not - that's fine, too. (after all it's THEIR wedding.)
Q Do you charge more for helping couples with presiding over their rehearsal?
A No. It's a fun time for all of us and I really enjoy to experience. (anyway, I do not have a set fee and the couples decide that)
I have been married to my first wife Pat for many many years.
She and I would be happy to share some of our secrets for a successful marriage with couples if requested.
