Frequently Asked Questions for wedding ceremonies

What is included?


My service includes officiating on your wedding day, meeting with you two  before the wedding (or by phone, Skype or FaceTime if you prefer) so I can completely customize your unique wedding ceremony, and completing and filing your marriage license by certified mail.

How do I write your ceremony?


I customize your ceremony by speaking with you two to find out what’s important to you, how you met, interesting stories, etc.  Then, I blend some traditional parts of the classic ceremony with a section on you and whatever else we work on to add: unity ceremonies, readings, memorial candles, etc.  I can make a million suggestions, but I never forget it’s your day and not my show so we can include anything you’d like in your ceremony.

Where do I marry people?


So far I've performed wedding ceremonies for 100+ couples in ten states, in front of just a few witnesses in a backyard and hundreds of people at a destination resort.  Beaches, barns, mountain tops, state parks, rooftops, historic battlefields, West Point, Central Park, overlooking the Hudson River, overlooking the Delaware River, in a former cork factory, military bases, hotels, restaurants, and more--if you want to get married, I'll be there.
