"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were." - Justice Anthony Kennedy - as part of a historic United States Supreme Court ruling
Your wedding day is probably the most important day of your life, so I treat it that way. Your wedding planning can be a stressful time. Let’s work together to reduce the stress and get your marriage off to a great start.
There are a variety of ceremonies available that couples have liked. Some are traditional, contemporary or unconventional. As an ordained interfaith minister/wedding officiant, I conduct religious or non-religious ceremonies, or even informal quick ceremonies that meet legal requirements. I will also help you to customize the ceremony if you are looking for something specific.
Let's chat so I can find out your ideas. Together, we can design a ceremony that you will remember forever.
As a wedding officiant, I not only want you to have a magical and memorable ceremony, but in addition, experience a long beautiful life together. Therefore, I offer Premarital Coaching. This coaching process is based upon a detailed report obtained by taking an online assessment. Modern technology and state of the art psychological tools make it easy to evaluate your respective personalities. Furthermore, it will determine areas where you are compatible, and issues that might present a challenge. The Ancient Greeks famously used to say,” Know Thyself”. It is important in a relationship to not only know yourself, but to also know your mate.
I will offer my advice based on my experience as a spiritual teacher, Ordained Interfaith Minister, and accumulated 35 years of being married.
"Andrew was amazing! Monica and I were so happy we found Andrew. After doing a search on the Internet for an officiant, we came across Andrew which felt like a good match. He was quick to respond to my inquiry and exceptionally friendly. I think the first time Andrew and I spoke over the phone, we spoke for more than 20 minutes just getting to know each other and feeling each other out.
Andrew was just as polite and friendly in person as he was over the phone. He explained to us how everything works and showed us a sample of the script. Andrew was so flexible in making changes we requested for certain cultural traditions for our ceremony.
On the wedding day, Andrew arrived early and ready to go. He had a calming demeanor about him which helped me and my wife stay calm throughout the ceremony. After the ceremony, Andrew helped us complete all the proper paperwork which he filed for us the next day because he just so happened to be by the county clerk's office.
I can't say anything more about Andrew. He was easy to communicate with via email and just an overall great officiant and amazing person."
