What to Expect
Every love story has a beginning and we want to know yours. Forever-Agape is very interested in understanding how the two of you met, what made you fall for each other, and what has inspired you to take the next step. Our Love & Lattes Consultation is designed to let us get to know you, and for you to know us.
Our free consultation sessions are not, in any way, a confirmation or promise that you will hire us, and as a matter of fact many of our customers will "interview" us, meet with other officiant's, and come back excited that they have found the right provider for their wonderful day. It would be presumptuous of us to think that we are the perfect fit for every couple. That said, we are not offended if you decide not to go with us, and often times, we may be able to refer you to someone that fits your particular need or style.
What to expect?
Expect our our professional officiants to be themselves. There will not be a hard sale of services or cost. If you would like to discuss this upfront, by all means please let your officiant know. The purpose of the meeting is a general "meet and greet" and familiarization of each other. Don't be surprised if the officiant asks you questions that pertain to your courtship, as they want to use this information to start planning the perfect script to write.
Sometimes through the process of talking with the officiant you may find that the service you were looking for is not what you need. Do not worry, the officiant will help you anyway they can, and if it is not part of the regular service we offer, we will create one just for you!
Owner - Officiant
Born in Los Angeles, CA and having graduated from the University of California, Riverside, William enlisted into the armed services only a month after the September 11th attacks and found himself stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington shortly thereafter. He was assigned to the 2nd Infantry Division and became a part of the very first “Stryker” Brigade. After a deployment to Iraq, William was reassigned to a Calvary Brigade to teach and mentor younger soldiers.
Upon leaving the military, William continued his education and pursued a Master’s Degree in Occupational Safety and Health. While striving towards this milestone, he worked as a safety consultant which allowed him to travel and deliver speeches all around the world. Some of William’s clients included Cirque du Soleil, NBC / Universal, NASA, Disney, National Park Service, Direct TV, Federal Aviation Administration, National Weather Service, U.S. Navy, U.S. Army and a whole host of other well known organizations.
William has made a living giving speeches in front of large and small crowds. His ability to read an audience, combined with his witty ness will ensure that, despite the inevitable hiccups, no one will be the wiser. His travels have taken him to numerous countries around the world, such as Greece, Australia, Saudi Arabia, and South Korea (where he met his bride) has given him a unique perspective on life and culture. William moved his family from the Seattle area to Central Virginia when he accepted a job to work for a non-profit organization that employs people with disabilities. Now he uses his vast experience of global cultures, public speaking and combines it with a profound love of people to help ensure that they begin their lives together with a memorable ceremony.
Margaret is an Indiana native, but moved to Virginia five years ago from Seattle. She is a musician, singer, belly dancer, and world traveler! Having visited over 15 countries she has a unique perspective of the world, and loves to share that with those around her. In addition, she has lived in both Germany and South Korea, and actually met her husband in Korea while teaching English! Margaret possesses a Bachelors in German Studies and can speak it fluently. With a penchant for the theatrical and a genuine love for people, Forever-Agape, LLC is blessed to have such a wonderful addition to our team.

Influences & Inspiration
I am an avid watcher of TED talks, and study public speaking professionals. We have given speeches, or have performed ceremonies for as little as 5 people or as many as 500. Depending on the size of the audience, the speaking style and ceremony has to correspond if it is to flow efficiently. However, at the heart of the service we provide are the needs and wants of the couple.
