Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a real minister?
Yes, I am an ordained inter-faith minister and Notary Public and legal to perform weddings in the State of Florida. I do not preach a specific point of view to any of my couples.
Where do you perform ceremonies?
I officiate ceremonies anywhere you wish from Tampa to Boca Grande Florida.
How do you write our ceremony? Where do we begin?
We’ll meet informally, where I can share some of my information with you, and learn about you both, how you met, your likes, backgrounds, your desires for your wedding and to get to know you and understand exactly what you are looking for. I have detailed questions that I will ask. I’ll then write your ceremony for you, and send you outlines and your vows. I can be available to do a rehearsal if needed, and will officiate the ceremony on your wedding day. Throughout the process, I am available for virtually unlimited phone and email consultations.
How far in advance are you scheduled?
I recommend booking an officiant at least one year to six months before your wedding, for the best availability. If it's less than 6 months though, that is fine. Email me right away so I can check my calendar.
How long do your ceremonies take?
It all depends on what you want in it and varies couple to couple. My usual ceremony is 20-30 minutes in length, but we can make that shorter or longer. Whatever you wish!
What kind of rituals can we include in our ceremony?
That is the wonderful thing about having a custom wedding ceremony written. We can include glass breaking, hand fastening, unity candles, sand ceremony, shell toss, and anything else you wish to personalize the ceremony to include your traditions and unique tastes.
Do we write our own vows?
Writing your own vows can add a wonderful dimension to your wedding ceremony and I can help you with the process of doing this, but if needed, I'd be more than happy to write custom vows and offer suggestions for you.
