"Your wedding officiant should help you to be relaxed enough to smile, laugh and enjoy your wedding; to feel the profound emotions of the most tender moments and to have an experience that will be well worth remembering for years to come. That is what I want to do for you."

"I will help you to plan so that your wedding is 'Done Your Way' with the content that you choose for your service from my Sample Service Service Planning Tool. Choose what YOU like, write your own, make all the decisions - you are in charge. Tell me what you want. I will work for you."

"While I served in a United Methodist church as pastor for many years before retiring recently, my denominational connection should not influence YOUR choices of the elements for YOUR wedding. Make choices that fit YOUR faith and feelings. I want to assure those who feel that a church does not accept them, that they are loved and accepted and worthy of God's blessing for their family, their love and their relationship. I also provide secular and interdenominational wedding ceremonies."
