I have an earned doctorate in family systems and three plus decades of working with couples in places I've served such as Washington, DC, Pittsburgh, the Bay Area of California and Columbia, MD.

I've married couples in churches, backyards, vineyards, the beach, hotels, all sorts of places. Bringing a sense of humor and joy to the occasion is something I do and helps relieve nerves!

I'm also not your average kind of pastor as I own a submarine business and ride a Harley.

I'm good with families in joy and in sorry. A wedding can bring all those emotions and experiences into one place, because family, right? Helping a couple navigate through that while setting the stage for their own life-long commitment is something for which I have years of experience.

Frequently asked questions

Initial contact to have a sense of what type of wedding experience the couple is seeking.  I come out of a more liturgical tradition which means I can help a couple design a service that has a sense of order and structure to their wedding service.

35 years of experience and an earned doctorate in Family Systems and Communication.

Not really as there are so many variables.  Is this a destination wedding? Will there be premarital counseling desired or help planning the service and vows.
