Wedding Services As your officiate, our goal is to make sure your vision for your wedding is realized. We work with each couple individually on the exact wording of the ceremony and vows. Some couples choose poems, readings, candle lighting or favorite songs. Our experience includes working with couples of different cultures, traditions, religions and sexual orientation. Many couples struggle with the issue of wanting their ceremony to meet the expectations of their families, but desiring to remain true to their own different values and beliefs. We can help you create a ceremony that is beautifully spiritual in nature while not over the top religious or controversial. The greatest sense of spirituality comes from the amazing web of people with which you surround yourselves. Your wedding should be a community celebration of your love and commitment to one another; a unique ceremony that honors the beliefs of others while remaining true to your own.

Courthouse Wedding Ceremony
This option is available to couples who only want their marriage license signed, a simple and quick process. We are able to meet you at a location in either Smithfield or Suffolk and is our least expensive option. This can also be a 'courthouse' wedding.
Small, Quaint Wedding Ceremony This option is for couples who would like a very intimate ceremony attended by a small group (up to 25 people). We will officiate your ceremony and sign your marriage license with the pricing dependent upon the distance to the location and if you want a customized ceremony. The closer you are willing to come to us, the less expensive our officiating becomes.
Mid-Size or Large Wedding Ceremony If you are expecting 100 or more guests and you are renting a wedding venue, we not only officiate your ceremony and sign your marriage license, we also work with you to develop your ceremony and your vows. This includes an in-person consultation, and can include our conducting or attending your rehearsal for an additional reasonable fee.

Family Blending Ceremony Honors
the Children & the new family
FAMILY BLENDING ELEMENTS
Often we think of marriage as the joining of two people. In reality, many times marriage is much broader. It is also the coming together and merging of families and friends. This is even more apparent when the engages couple have children. With children present the wedding ceremony also becomes the proclaiming of a new family. We will work with you to create a Family Blending element in your ceremony so that every member of the new family feels important and included on this wonderful day! The blending element can be as simple as joining sand or speaking special vows to the children. Sometimes it is more lighthearted with the creation of a blended 'ice cream sundae' or joining M&M's instead of sand! We are very creative and flexible.
A Family Sand Ceremony can be so special.
In this one, the grown children added large seashells as a symbol of their support. Guests added small seashells to symbolize their best wishes.
