What to Expect
Anything from a brief (15 minute) basic traditional wedding ceremony to an elaborate 45 minute ceremony, based on the wishes of the couple. I also perform handfastings, renewal of vows, and same-sex commitment ceremonies. While I specialize in interfaith, non-denominational, and secular/non-religious ceremonies, my aim is to assist the client in whatever way I can to make their event as stress-free and memorable as possible.
Born in New Jersey in 1961, I have lived in the Chattanooga, Tennessee area since 1973. I served honorably in the U.S. Army, and in addition to being a performing folk rock singer/songwriter. I graduated with an Masters degree in Community Counseling from the University of Tennessee in 1996 (during which period I also received my first ministerial ordination), working in the mental health field for 10 years before unexpected changes in my life situation eventually led to a call to found my interfaith ministry, Crossvine Church in 2013.
I've always had a strong interest in spirituality and interfaith dialogue, and saw a need to fill the gaps in our community by taking a cross-cultural approacch, offering officiant services to all couples, regardless of their beliefs or sexual orientation. Thanks to the overwhelming response we've received from the community, we have been able to expand our ministry to many other areas.
Additional Booking Notes
I am willing to work with the couple to provide the ceremony in any venue and using any props within reason and appropriate safety-limits.

Influences & Inspiration
I have seen many ministers perform weddings, both live and on video. Also, I have done extensive self-study in wedding officiating, all of which has influenced my personal style.
No additional items usually needed, however, the couple may consider using a sound system (with lapel microphone for officiant), and if couple wants officiant to wear special attire to accommodate a special theme, this must be provided at client's expense
