FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

We will connect over the phone or video chat to discuss your vision, needs, and wedding day details. Once we have finalized the details, I will prepare a contract for your review. If you choose to proceed, you can quickly e-sign the agreement and send the deposit. Once these steps are complete, I will begin crafting the first draft of your custom wedding ceremony and share it with you for your review.

FAQAbsolutely! I am commissioned through the Orange County Circuit Court and authorized to perform marriage ceremonies throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. My specialization includes wedding ceremonies, elopements, vow renewals, non-denominational ceremonies, and LGBTQ+ ceremonies.

Not at all! Your ceremony is all about your preferences and beliefs, not mine. I am experienced in creating civil, non-denominational, and spiritual ceremonies, which are often preferred by many couples. However, suppose you have specific religious or interfaith ceremony requirements. In that case, we can discuss them to ensure your ceremony reflects your unique wishes.

I primarily serve the Central Virginia area. However, I am available to travel outside of this region upon request. Please note that additional travel fees may apply for services provided outside of the Central Virginia area.

Alongside my officiant services, I offer various add-on services to enhance your wedding experience. These include ceremony coordination (processional and recessional, bridal party lineup), personal vow writing assistance, hiking ceremonies, and rehearsal services. Let’s have a conversation about your specific needs, and we can customize the services accordingly.

In 2009, I opened Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast, a historic wedding venue in Orange, Virginia. As the venue owner, I became a commissioned Marriage Commissioner to officiate the wedding ceremonies in addition to the planning services provided by the venue.

I am delighted to work with people of all genders, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Love knows no boundaries, and I believe in creating inclusive and meaningful ceremonies for all couples.
