Each ceremony I do is custom made for the couple. I am available to meet with the couple to discuss their wishes and personalize their ceremony. I am available on short notice if needed.
It is gratifying to me to be a part of the most important day of someone's life. Joy is infectious and I inevitably leave a ceremony being uplifted by the happiness of the day.
Bart was the perfect choice to officiate our wedding! He took great care to make sure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. At one point during our vows, I got choked up and was unable to continue. He came to the rescue with a perfectly timed joke to make me laugh (and all of our guests too!) and I was able to get the rest of vows out. It is still one of my favorite parts of the ceremony! He brought a wonderful warmth and steadiness to our day and I’m so thankful for that!
Bart met with us to ask about our relationship, how we met, what we wanted for our vows (giving us options), and examples of programs so we could choose one that fit best. He is warm and professional. He also has a wonderful sense of humor with a gift for story telling. We highly recommend him.
My husband and I have been married for 5 years now. Bart married us and walked us through everything we needed for our wedding day. He helped us personalize our ceremony to make it more, us. He took what is a very stressful process from all of the planning and made it simple and easy.
When a customer contacts me about a wedding I send them sample ceremonies so they can see what I do. If they like what they see they can either hire me or set up a face to face to see it I'm the right fit.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in ministerial studies from Averett University, a Masters of Divinity in pastoral care from Southeastern Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry from Drew Theological School.
