Each couple has my full undivided attention at our consultations, meetings and when I officiate-
Wedding traditions and customs can vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions. At our 1st consultation we will communicate YOUR Wedding Ceremony wishes. Couples can be involved in the construction of their Ceremony & Vows, whether you prefer a religious ceremony, Interfaith Ceremony, secular or non-denominational, or need any advice if you've not made that decision as a couple yet.
I'm here with an open ear and an open heart and I'll be there to guide you through the process for an appropriate ceremony.
If you're newly engaged, having a second wedding, renewing your vows or dreaming of a themed wedding, I can tailor your ceremony & vows to fit your situation!
As I meet with the two of you and learn your unique Love Story, I am confident to create YOUR one-of-a-kind ceremony for your Special day that promises to be memorable.
Offering 2 Types of Ceremonies
*Customized Ceremony- a one-of-a-kind crafted and personalized Wedding Ceremony, Vow Renewal or Commitment Ceremony by Chaplain Dennis, which incorporates your own unique love story, your history, it will be created based on our conversations (telephone and skype video meeting) and by your answers to my Love Story questionnaire. You may choose to add on a ritual, like a Handfasting or Breaking of the Glass.
