I love weddings. Helping couples find just the right words to express their love for each other brings me profound joy, and leading their ceremony is an honor I cherish each and every time I get to marry a couple. I love watching couples declaring their love, infusing their ceremonies with their love story, and sealing their connection with a beautiful public affirmation. I love language and finding ways to express in words the sometimes inexpressible.
As a wedding photographer, I was a ten-time winner of Best of Weddings in The Knot, and a seven-time Couples’ Choice winner in Wedding Wire. I had been an opera singer and stage director for nearly thirty years, but weddings took over during the 2010’s.
I strive to provide my couples with an excellent experience from start to finish, helping to ensure their wedding ceremony reflects their personalities both as individuals and as a couple.
I am an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church as well as the Soul Community Church (which is legally necessary for weddings in Pennsylvania). I conduct ceremonies for every loving and consenting couple who wish to marry in the state of New Jersey or Pennsylvania. The Services page lists the different types of services I provide, from fully customized ceremonies to simple elopements. I am happy to answer any questions you have about the process of obtaining your marriage certificate, and I’m happy to provide advice on reliable wedding venues and vendors.
