Lone Palm Ministries
Personalized weddings and renewals require a genuine concern for the people they are working with. I am a very relational person with over 40 years in ministry in churches, bars, tattoo shops, and other unique settings.
I can provide weddings that are informal or very formal, depending on the preferences.
Helping 2 become 1.
For over 30 years I have been bringing people together in one form or another. As a minister, and a person who cares deeply for others, I want people to share authentic love, deep happiness, and spontaneous laughter each day.
Marriage is a sacred partnership where 2 bring their best and not so best to support and strengthen each other.
It's their day, their marriage...help them bring out the best in both.
My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 2 amazing daughters who are happily married.
I have done weddings and renewals in Virginia, the Carolinas and Florida. The venues include small chapels and historic sanctuaries, beaches and back yards, decks on beach houses and boats. I have worn robes and shorts, wing tip shoes and barefoot. It's their wedding and I am there to play a role.
