Getting to know a couple beforehand is very important to me. To that end, I like to have an initial meeting to see if we are a good match. If we are, then I try to meet with you as many times as we you would like. The average is three visits prior to your wedding date.

“If I'd known my wedding would be so much fun, I would have done it a long time ago. Our ceremony was such a wonderful combination of so many things.  We are deeply thankful for your guidance, insight and open-mindedness. The pre counseling appointments really made me more assured that we were making the right choice for our lives.  And you being our minister meant everything to our start in live.”
- Randy (of Randy and Page)

Our wedding was a memorable event in so many ways - with your invaluable direction, Craig and I we so happy. Your particular outlook and philosophy along with you encouragement set us on a path we would not have otherwise taken in developing that ceremony that we worked hard to make our own.”
- Lisa and Craig

“Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding ceremony. Everything came together so well and we really appreciate how you helped us create a meaningful and personal ceremony.”

  • We would discuss such things as what is it that brings the two of you together?
  • What is unique about your connection?
  • How did you meet?
  • What are some of the things that you share and enjoy doing together?
  • The more that I get to know you, the more authentic and heartfelt will be the words that I say to you during your wedding ceremony.
