About this pro

I am a romantic at heart and an altruist, who believes that we are all children of God and the Universe and we all have the right to be happy, loved, respected and accepted. I believe in love and I enjoy immensely witnessing couples profess their feelings to each other, committing to a beautiful life together and being part of one of their most memorable dates.

I have over 10 years of experience performing weddings and I would love to help you or any of your friends or family members to have a beautiful, personalized ceremony. I am fully bilingual in English and Spanish so I can perform your ceremonies in both languages as well.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

·       Will you meet with the couple before the ceremony to discuss ideas and answer questions?

A: A:Yes. My services include a meeting or meetings to meet and discuss all the wedding service related issues.

 

·       Do your services include attendance to the rehearsal?

A: A: Yes, I will attend your rehearsal dinner or party. If you don’t have a rehearsal event, I will     meet up with you prior to the wedding to discuss the final details of your ceremony, unless     otherwise decided.

 

·       Will the couple have a choice of wedding ceremony content and vows?

A: Yes, my ceremonies are personalized so I will write the ceremony especially for you.  I can also help you writing vows and structuring your service. If you have a very clear idea of what you want, I will just officiate your wedding; but, if you need help with the ceremony itself, ideas on what to do or with writing your vows, I will do that for you as well.

 

·       Do you provide ceremony ideas, customs, readings, ceremony samples, etc?

A: Yes, I will provide you with samples for your ceremony, ideas on what you can add or remove, samples of vows, readings and all the elements you need to have a great ceremony.

 

·       Will you stick to the agreed upon ceremony content and wording or do you improvise some of the content?

A: I will e-mail a copy of the service draft for your approval. After final approval, I will print it and take it to the wedding day.

 

·       Does the couple have a say as to what you will wear to the wedding?

A: Yes. I usually wear a black (pant or skirt) suit but, I have been asked to be barefoot and to wear a tan or off-white dress for beach weddings or to wear a color shirt to match the wedding colors. I will discuss with you your preferences, since it is my purpose to help you have a great wedding and I understand pictures are a big part of it.

 

·       Upon booking, do you have the pertinent details in writing?

A: Yes. There will be a contract signed by the couple and myself.

 

·       Do you offer extra services like wedding coordination, party planning, etc?

A: No. My main expertise is marrying couples. However, I love weddings and I have helped to plan a lot of them for friends and relatives, so I am open to assist in any way I can.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

My professional experience as a lawyer as well as my personal experiences, such as living in different countries, having family living in South America, Europe and the USA, as well as being fully bilingual, has given me a multicultural background that will help me to customize your wedding in a very unique and special way.
