A New Kind of Wedding Celebration

Ceremonies That Make Sense

When meeting with couples for wedding entertainment, they often already have an idea of what they want. First and foremost, it’s got to be FUN. Next, they want it to be about them. No “cookie-cutter” wedding timelines, playlists, or routine events – it’s all about creativity. Yet, when it comes to the wedding ceremony, many still approach it as traditional as possible. That’s okay, but the ceremony is truly the first chance to set the tone for the rest of the day and the reception that will follow, and it’s safe to have fun with it.

Customized Wedding Celebrations

I have been a wedding master of ceremonies since 1995 and I have been ordained as a non-denomination minister since 2006. During that time I’ve been witness to hundreds of wedding ceremonies. Despite that, I’ve still only managed to pin down a handful of wedding officiants that I would highly recommend. In summer 2012, I was working with a photographer that made a comment on how I could probably do better than most of the ones she’s worked with. That’s it. That’s really how it all began.

This also meant that I couldn’t approach ceremonies like the others out there. We won’t just piece together a bunch of random poems and readings. Instead, we’ll incorporate parts of your Love Story, something that I have been doing as part of my wedding entertainment packages for years – and one of the most memorable experiences according to my clients. It’s fairly easy on your end, and we’ll do it together through our planning stages.
