For 7 years now, I have been marrying happy couples. 1st time married couples, divorced couples, same-sex couples. I have a variety of services that I can present to couples, as they plan their special day. They can then cut, paste, and if they chose to, add their own sentiments, to make there a service a tad more personal on their special day.

"Marriage is not a love affair, it’s an ordeal. It is a religious exercise, a sacrament the grace of participating in another life. If you go into marriage with a program, you will find that it won’t work. Successful marriage is leading innovative lives together, being open, non-programmed. It’s a free fall: how you handle each new thing as it comes along. As a drop of oil on the sea, you must float, using intellect and compassion to ride the waves." - Joseph Campbell
