Caring, experienced, thoughtful, professional and humorous are a few of the ways my work has been described. But personally I think it's a joy to be able to get to know and to serve couples in Michigan and the surrounding states. As a minister I take a lot of joy in being able to bring in humor, reverence and a sense of the holy to their special day, and I look forward to getting to know you and to work with you.

What to Expect
When I work with a couple you can expect several things. First off a calming presence. My entire ministry career is weddings, hospice and funerals, so I’m used to being the rock for those who are going through a stressful event. I’m there to shepherd and serve you through this part of your life and I’m very good at it.
Someone who can maintain a sense of reverence while keeping a good sense of humor. I can be funny, but I keep it sacred and I work with what’s fitting for you and your family.
I take this work seriously. I’m one of the only people I know of in this buisness who went through an ordination process that took several years, multiple internships and a graduate degree. That translates to that I put time and effort into you and your wedding and that I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table.
I was born and raised in Northern Michigan, and have many good memories of the great outdoor beauty of our state. I went to college in Grand Rapids, making some close friends and earning two under graduate degrees. After graduation my wife and I went to Texas for 5 years, where I Graduated from Seminary and got ordained, then served as an Associate Pastor and a Temporary Pastor. We then went to TN where I served as a Solo Pastor. In 2014 we were blessed to move back to Michigan where we purchased a home, I started a buisness doing weddings and I went to work for Hospice full time. My family and I have been blessed to work with many wonderful couples and families during some of the most sacred moments in their lives. One of my biggest joys in my work is to stay in touch and see how couples and families do in the future. Sometimes I even do more services for families in the future and work with the same people. I hope to hear from you and look forward to walking with you on your journey.
Additional Booking Notes
I’m flexible to what your needs are. Usually I don’t need a mic unless it’s a large or noisy venue. I’m not one of those that demands things along these lines, I’d rather talk with you about what your vision is and make recommendations that I feel would enhance the overall service.
If you do need sound equipment I have several systems of my own I can rent for an additional cost. I am also happy to work with you with what you own or what your dj (if you have one) provides.
I don’t require anything for equipment. I work with what you have and accept you as I find you. If you are doing a wedding ritual I’ll ask you to provide what’s needed for that.
