I am an Ordained Minister and truly love to work with people, Even as a child I wanted to be involved in the church. I was an Altar Boy in a Chicago Parish from age 7 and performed my duties well into my teens. As a child I also attended Cub Scouts and worked my way up to an Eagle Scout.
I have married many couples in lots of different settings: Multi-Faith, Traditional Christian, Civil and non-Denominational ceremonies and more. My passion is helping couples celebrate their love with a ceremony that they and their guests will remember: turning an ordinary wedding ceremony into the extraordinary. My favorite thing to hear is how much the ceremony touched people (l don't mind when I hear that a few tears were shed too).
What makes me different than other Wedding Officiants? The couples I have married tell me that:
I helped them feel less overwhelmed about planning the rnost imporlant event of their lives
I am very personable, warm, patient and flexible. I am able to help orchestrate their rehearsal
I am able to keep them calm and focused during the ceremony
I was able to make their day better and more enjoyable than they dreamed
One thing that I love about being an officiant is that I get to work with happy people on their happiest day, and because of thathave gotten several great testimonials and referrals.
Through the years, I always found myself ministering in some shape or form. I've ministered to family and friends, co-workers and employees, as well as to people in need that I have just met. I truly delight in serving others and it is my pleasure to minister to people during their milestone events. I have been told that others find me personable, loving, compassionate, and kind. To me, listening is a key part while I serve others.
During the journey of my life, I was Ordained and learned that I could fulfill my dream and become a minister of God. My life is now full and blessed. Now I believe that I am using the talent that God has given me. I am able to join two people who are in love in matrimony, baptize a child or adult, council through challenging times, and help say goodbye to loved ones.
Through these years, I have also come across many ideas to share on how to make those special moments memorable. Together we can work to create the perfect complement of elements that reflect your wishes. My desire is to ensure that what I do honors you and those you love.
