I perform weddings within the Tampa Bay area, including Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando and Polk counties.

Can you help with interfaith ceremonies?
Interfaith wedding ceremonies is exactly the kind of service I'm happy to perform. Everything that I do is non-denominational and always considerate of your family and guests.
What if I do or don't want to have any religion references in my ceremony. Is that okay?
Definitely! While I'm a non-denominational minister, I'm also a Florida Notary and I'm happy to work with you to create a custom ceremony that is authentic to you and your beliefs, whatever they may be.

Yes! I'm happy to marry any, consenting, couple who wants to be married.
What do I have to do to book you?
Simply contact me to check my availability for your date. Once you are ready to speak to with me, or commit to your date and time, simply go on-line, submit a non-refundable deposit of $25.00 and you’re all set!
When will the final payment be due?
The balance payment is due either at the rehearsal or anytime prior to the wedding.
How much do you charge?
I marry people because I enjoy watching young couples taking the first step to starting a family. My basic charge is $125.00 which includes, initial consultation, assistance writing your wedding script, vows and/or blessings both pre-ceremony and pre-reception. If I'm needed at the rehearsal, please add $25.00.
Is there a separate travel fee?
No, all travel is included in my package price. However, if you have selected a venue that does not offer free parking, you are responsible for either validating or paying for parking. If there is a toll charge to reach your venue, then you will be responsible for that payment. For weddings outside my service area, overnight accommodations may also be required.
What if I have to change my start time or wedding date?
I understand that sometimes change is unavoidable. It's important that you contact me, as soon as possible, to discuss exactly what the changes are. If it's at all possible, I would be happy to accommodate your changes.
Will you come to our wedding rehearsal?
Yes, provided I'm available. However, remember that if you have a wedding planner or venue coordinator, they will assist you in making sure everyone knows their role in the ceremony.
If I still want you to be at the rehearsal can I book it now?
Of course! The surest way to guarantee my availability is to do so as early as possible.
Do you allow pictures during the ceremony?
Yes, of course! I'm happy to inform you that your photographer and videographer can shoot whenever and however they would like. I'm always happy to make their job as convenient as possible.
We’re already legally married can you still have a wedding ceremony?
Yes, I do this for a lot of couples each year, especially military couples. I will conduct the ceremony so that no one will have the slightest suspicion.
Do you stay for the reception?
I prefer not to stay for your reception. Your reception is a time for you to be the star of the show, to have fun with your guests. Of course, if you want me to say a blessing, I will be happy to do so.
