Some Common Questions
  • Can we create our own ceremony?
  • Yes, I encourage couples to develop a ceremony that reflects their love, commitment and cultural traditions. I am able to draw on a wide variety of experience to help each create a wedding ceremony that will express their love.
  • What is the length of time for the ceremonies?
  • The ceremony’s length varies according to the preference of the couple. Most ceremonies run for about 25 minutes.
  • What do you wear?
  • I can wear a suit, or a suit and ministerial stole, or full priestly garb of alb and stole. I defer to the couple as to their preference.
  • Are rehearsals necessary?
  • Sometimes couples like to have rehearsals so everyone in the wedding party knows what to do. Most wedding venues have a coordinator that will conduct a rehearsal if the couple wishes. I can conduct rehearsals for an added fee.
  • How does the process of creating the ceremony get started?
  • The couple initially meets with me to get a sense of my style and I get an idea of from them of what they are for in the ceremony. A guideline is offered for the couple’s use in formulating their ceremony and suggestions are made.
