About my business and how I got here
I am a missouri-based wedding officiant. I believe in love, romance, and all those things that bring two people together as one. I believe that one person's significant other should lift, encourage, support and enhance the other. I would love to assist you in creating the perfect wedding ceremony to join you and your loved one together. I offer various types of ceremonies starting from something that might be very short and sweet to a full traditional ceremony.
The Elopement is what some may call that little Downsized version of the Traditional Ceremony. This is perfect for 20 Guests or less and can run between 15 - 30 minutes. You receive (1) one hour personalized meeting and unlimited e-mail support allowing me to get to know you and your partner. One revision or update to your Ceremony. 10 Day advanced booking preferred but not necessary.. *see additional Information
Personal and Intimate
This Ceremony is perfect for those who want to put their special touch on their own wedding. This ceremony can be between 30 minutes to an hour and usually you would have between 20 - 50 guests. You receive (1) one hour personal meeting to discuss all those things that you desire to make your ceremony perfect, two ceremony revisions or updates (date changes not included). A consult with your wedding coordinator and vendors is included. I will arrive 30 minutes prior to your ceremony and stay 30 minutes after as needed. (additional time can be requested). 30 Day advanced booking required. (I would gladly attend the rehearsal dinner upon request
Modern & Traditional Ceremony
This Ceremony, like the Personal and Intimate Ceremony, is created to give you wonderful memories. This ceremony gives you time to share those personal vows that you and your partner have created for this special time in your life. Remember this is your celebration and I would love to share in this moment that will create your "Happily Ever After". If this Ceremony is what you desire, I will email you a relationship questionnaire, as it helps me get to know more about you in advance of your meeting so it can combine the ceremony wording along with your love story and any readings or any add-ins you wish to incorporate. I will arrive 1 hour prior to your ceremony and stay one to two hours after as needed. 30 Day advanced booking required. (I would gladly attend the rehearsal dinner upon request)
