What to Expect
Selecting a wedding officiant is an important part of your special day. I treat each couple with respect and am always honored at having been chosen. The first thing we will do is get to know each other. We will have an initial meeting, in person or via Skype/phone, where we will discuss your vision of how the ceremony will look and feel. We will discuss important aspects of the ceremony that you would like included such as the lighting of a unity candle, breaking of the glass, or other traditions. We will talk about any denomination-specific language you would like me to use, as well as any stories you would like shared.
I will take this information and create a personalized script for your ceremony. We will discuss the script and make changes until you are 100% happy. (For quick ceremonies, I can also use a general script instead.)
If desired, I can provide any items needed for the ceremony for an additional fee. This includes the unity candle, the glass for breaking, the guestbook, etc.
Typically, I wear a conservative black suit with a white shirt and black tie. However, given enough notice, I can customize my look to match your wedding colors.
If desired, I am also available to sing for your wedding. I can accompany myself on a piano if one is available, or can provide a tasteful backup track. I can also provide a compact sound system if needed.
Hello! My name is Joe Scarbrough and I am a professional musician and wedding officiant. I have a Bachelor's degree in vocal performance and a Master's degree in choral conducting, both from the University of South Florida. I currently run a non-profit music company, teach private voice lessons, and work as a church choir director. I am an ordained minister, so I can perform weddings as well as other religious events.
My husband and I have been married since September 2016 and we live in Plant City, Florida.
