Customized and Personalized Ceremonies:
I provide couples with a ‘wedding ceremony binder”, if they wish to customize and personalize their wedding ceremonies. The binder is set up to facilitate the crafting of your unique ceremony. Together we work to create that special ceremony for your magical day. Additional meetings to discuss your ceremony, as needed, are included in the fee.
Same Sex Weddings:
I welcome the opportunity to officiate for same sex weddings. All of my ceremony material can be modified to be compatible for same gender ceremonies.
Co-officiate with a member of the clergy is not a problem for me and can be arranged.
Officiating for weddings outside of Massachusetts:
I am available and can obtain authorization to solemnize weddings in New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
There is much more to a wedding rehearsal than lining up the Bridal Party, parents, grandparents etc. for the processional. At most venues it is common practice for me to take charge of conducting the rehearsal in conjunction with the wedding coordinator. When there is no coordinator available, I am quite comfortable conducting the rehearsal by myself. Having your Bridal Party and other members of the processional and recessional understand what is expected of them is critical to making your ceremony be as flawless and engaging as possible. It is at the rehearsal where we “fine tune” the ceremony and work out many of the unknowns and concerns that everyone in the bridal party may have.
Renewal of Vows:
Your love and your marriage have endured for so many years. You’ve been blessed with children, grandchildren and maybe even great-grandchildren. You’ve shared the good and the bad times, days of sickness and good health, and moments of joy and sorrow. Celebrate your many years together by renewing your marriage vows before those you love and cherish. What better way for you to be an example to your family and friends of what love and commitment are all about. It could be done as a surprise for children to honor their parents. As an example: At the request of their children, I was honored to perform a surprise vows renewal for a wonderful and energetic couple who celebrated the 70th wedding anniversary.
Life cycle events are something we all experience. It has been a privilege for me to officiate at the “Baby Naming” of the children of couples whose wedding ceremony I officiated. I am available for your Baby Naming event as well.
