Wedding Ministry

“Marrying is about restoring the vineyard so that it can surprise rich and poor. Marriage is a great conditioning that keeps us in shape for unconditional love, the kind promised in the beginning.”

~Donna Schaper~

Greetings and Welcome,

Your wedding day is one of the most significant moments of your life. Your ceremony should express your love for each other, and your lifelong commitment to one another. As an ordained minister and pastoral community counseling (PCC) doctoral candidate, my specialty is customizable weddings according to your ceremony needs. Therefore, I do not offer “cookie-cutter’ style ceremonies unless this is your desire. Fees may vary if your preference include 4 hours of pastoral premarital counseling, 1 to 2 hours of pre-planning, and 3 hours on your wedding day.

My officiant services are offered in the States of Colorado, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Tennessee, New Mexico, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Virgin Islands, Washington, and Wyoming.

Your wedding is performed in the reserved space of your choice; however, feel free to ask me for referrals as I know of several intimate to grand spaces as well, to include my own ceremony room.

For marriages in the Denver Metro area, which is my home base, your marriage license can be obtained here.  Please note that for me to be able to perform your wedding; you must obtain a marriage license prior to the ceremony.

If you are traveling to Denver, Colorado for your Rocky Mountain Wedding, and do not have the time to handle some of the finer details of your special day, I can assist you for a small fee. Should you choose this option, all you need to do is purchase your license and show up for your ceremony. If you would like to obtain premarital counseling before you arrive, this is available with me via Zoom.

I am looking forward to working with and celebrating with you at this joyous time!
