About this pro

Hey Bride and Groom (to be),

We love weddings!  And we love seeing young couples give their lives to each other in marriage.  So our goal is to facilitate as a Wedding Chaplin or Officiant the best possible experience for YOU and your guest.  It's a BIG DAY!  So let's do it well.   

Yes, it's about the wedding and you!  So we have worked with Christians, Atheist, Unbelievers, just whoever...   We want to deliver a quality service which is fun, to the point and personable.  It's our goal that YOU and your guest leave feeling they have had a great "experience" - - not just been apart of "ceremony".  

The lead pastor of our church, Pastor Trent, has been in ministry for 12 years.  He is married with 5 children.  Typically, he and his wife can attend if that's best for the wedding party.  Or he alone can serve.  

We have 3 very clear, yet editable, wedding formats for you to chose from.  We have found over the years that having a clear, to the minute and to the task, written detailed plan is helpful.  These choices can be emailed to the bride or wedding planner who can then edit to their liking.  We are also willing to accept other wedding plans.  

We would be so honored to serve you!  Also, our Pastor is not only a pastor, but he's also a notary.   So the marriage application will be a piece of cake to have filed and approved.  

We live within minutes from the best beaches in America, so the venue and possibilities are second to none.  Your day will be amazing.  And we would be thrilled to serve you whether you are a local or if you're planning an amazing destination wedding.  

If you have any questions - feel welcome to call - 727-316-LIFE - that's 727-316-5433

I love seeing people come together in commitment and the fruit of that life in the years to come!

FAQs


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

When working with a new customer, we like to talk on the phone or meet in person for our intro meeting.  This is just a moderate length conversation.  It's primarily to meet you, but also to be sure we get our intake completed.  The intake helps us know that we get the necessary information so that your wedding goes great!  (i.e. names of participants, names of family to recognize, etc.) You're welcome to text or email from there.  Calls are also available.  


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

Masters Degree in Theology which includes courses and a practicum involving counseling, role expectations, a view of marriage, public speaking, etc.  

I am a former general practice and family lawyer which helps me serve well in pre-marriage counseling (if requested).  

Notary Public

Bachelor's Degree in Business
