I'm a hopeless romantic and weddings depict hope; joy; faith; a belief in love and commitment. Weddings create an atmosphere of care, consideration and respect and a willingness to face lifes anxieties with another person. Weddings join two souls, two hearts, two minds and two families. Marriage declares a promise, shows strength and faith in humanity but most of all, they declare love. Love teaches us to encourage the people we love to make their own choices and seek their own path in life. Marriage allows us to make mistakes while knowing we have someone who will support us every step of that path. As your officiant, I will listen to your needs, celebrate your love and dance at the joy you share. AND, I'll do this not till death do you part but for as long as your hearts desire. Do you want your wedding personalized with vows created just for you and your special loved one? Then I'm the person for you. I am an ordained minister and can perform weddings, same sex unions, and other special occasions that require a minister. I provide a non-denominational service and can add as much or as little religious material as you wish. Each service is VERY personalized. I am excited about the work I do having spent a lifetime of my career in the non profit sector working with individuals with disabilities and at risk youth. The work I do as a minister validates my years in this field. Romance is so important and everyone deserves the right to be happy. I can help provide that to you on your wedding day (happiness in your marriage is up to you). I love creating weddings that are personal and romantic. My fees start at $200 (this does not include travel time outside of the Greater Indianapolis area). Remember, there IS a mileage charge of 45 cents per mile starting when I leave my home In 2015, I performed a wedding in in New Jersey (My fees were higher for this one). Destination weddings are welcomed....(fees are negotiated for these). As a recent bride myself, I hired an officiant who DID NOT live up to my expectations. This will never happen to you. I will listen to your wishes and write a ceremony that you will remember AND you will have a copy of the ceremony for a keepsake. I did not receive that and was disappointed. I know you will be happy with my work. Make your ceremony a memorable one. Let me write your wedding ceremony. You'll never forget it! When we are safe in marriage, we can risk. Because we know we are loved, we can step beyond our fears. This is what makes my work so rewarding!
