About this pro

I belive deeply that the spirit in which you enter into marriage will be reflected in your relationship for your entire time together. I am blessed to bring a feeling of peace and confidence to every situation I enter. I marry people of all faith, non-faith, and ethical direction. I partiularly embrace gay, queer, transgender and non-binary couples.

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

I have a background as a wedding photographer and as an event planner so I understand the importance of careful planning to be sure everything goes smoothly on the day. I can work with you to write your vows or you can use my site to craft them yourself. I believe in celebrating your wedding in any way you want and I have lots of resources including my own sailboat to help your dreams come true. 

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

I am a faith leader of an Intentional Eucharistic Community in the Catholic tradition. We have visiting Roman Catholic priests for communion but when none are available I am the one chosen to lead. As an extremely liberal Catholic and non-denominational minister I'm well equipped to do traditional services for non-tradional couples or non-traditional services altogether. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I'm at a point that I'm developing pricing based on each request so if you have a specific budget please let me know and I will try to work with it. The pricing factors are:

Time to consult and write vows

time to travel to and from Greenbelt MD

Time for rehearsal

Saturday schedule

any additional requirements 

How did you get started in this business?

A friend asked and then a friend of a friend and I genuinely enjoyed being able to offer my deep well of peace to others as they begin their marriage journey. 

What types of customers have you worked with?

I've had a gay couple and an interracial couple. So I hope I'm open to just about anyone.
