A Happy and Rewarding Experience

Marrying people is a loving, happy and rewarding experience. I learn as much as possible about each couple to help them create their special ceremony and make their wedding day as extraordinary as possible. I personally celebrate each couple's union and find boundless joy in my vocation.

Non-Denominational Ceremonies

My specialty is non-denominational ceremonies, as there are a great number of interfaith marriages, or simply people coming together from different walks of life, who do not want to incorporate religion in their services. I also welcome those of you who have alternative lifestyles and I joyfully perform Commitment Ceremonies as well as customary weddings.

Marriages in All 50 States

I was educated by the State of California as a Deputy Commissioner of Civil Marriages, and I am also ordained with the Universal Life Church. I am available to conduct non-denominational marriage ceremonies in all 50 of the United States and in the past year alone, I have joined hundreds of couples in wedded happiness.

Family Wedding Dreams

One couple, in particular, rises to the surface of my memory. An older pair, they had been living together compatibly for 47 years, never having had the pleasure of planning or experiencing a formal wedding ceremony. Their grandchildren convinced them to marry legally and once they agreed, the ceremony became a dream come true for the entire family. All were deeply touched by its significance, as these two people had lovingly supported each other for nearly a half a century. But none was as touched so deeply as the Groom, who wept throughout the ceremony. "I never thought we would really do this," he said, "and I am so grateful for your warm and thoughtful ceremony. We shall think of you on each of our 'new' anniversaries."

Delightful Differences

I will happily perform my "Delightfully Different Ceremonies" in any setting the couple chooses, whether it be in your own backyard, or in any place as exciting or different as you may wish. I will be delighted to help you write your own vows, or you may customize them from the variety I have on hand. My mission is to create your wedding ceremony to be the memory you carry within your hearts each day of your marriage.

Sweet Notes!

We eloped and always regretted not having a wedding which included our friends and family. Sande Lynne performed a renewal of our vows on our 10th anniversary.
