When I first started doing weddings I was overwhlemed by how the most simple of life's choices can be such a complicated process.  Many of the couples that I have met with over the years enter our initial consulatation wide eyed and having no idea what to expect.  The opportunity to walk a couple through a ceremony and see them begin to visualize their own moment is an incredible motivator to make sure that I am the best that I can be for them.  

When I founded I Do My Way I did so to enable couples to create a ceremony that reflects who they are and allow them to personlize their moment.  This process begins with knowledge - knowledge gained through understanding the elements of a weddings ceremony, getting advice from people who are in the business and by having a process by which they can easily put it on paper.

My job as an officiant is to take that piece of paper, understand the thoughts behind what has been chosen and to present those thoughts with as much skill as I possibly can.  When you hire someone like me you expect near perfection in how your moment is presented (I say "near" because nobody is perfect).  My promise to you is that I will do the best I can to achieve that perfection.  

I look forward to working with you and to making your moment - uniquely yours.

It was pleasure to marry Erin and Stephen on this beautuful Saturday afternoon.  They were fantastic to work with and they brought so much energy to the event.  From the rehearsal to the actual ceremony everything went very well and even a few little bumps by tripping groomsmen and an officiant forgetting to remind everyone to blow their bubbles did little to diminish the overall effect of the ceremony.  Both Erin and Stephen were rockstars who brought a true sense of love and excitment with them.  It was pleaure to sit and listen to them express their love to each other throughout the ceremony.

Thank you guys for allowing me to be part of your wedding and I am so very happy for you - all the best
