About this pro

I believe wedding ceremonies are incredibly special! Often they are the most signficant event in an individuals life up to that point in time. 

For me, the ceremony should be: 

- Short but meaningful. (I keep them around 25-30 minutes).

- Light-hearted but initimate.

- About the bride and groom. (No off-cuff personal stories from me).

- Rooted in scripture. (I believe God teaches us in the Bible what a marriage ought to resemble).

I love celebrating with people in some of their most exciting moments of life. Watching the nerves take over and helping calm down a bride, or helping a groom get his head on straight...those things excite me. 

Rarely do people remember what specifically was said during the ceremony, but they remember the moments all around the ceremony. I like helping create positive moments.
