More About the Vendor:
I am an ordained reverend, I am bonded and insured. Each wedding ceremony that I perform is unique. I am versed in numerous wedding customs and traditions, from sand blending to unity tree planting! Whether it is a Celtic hand fastening or a traditional until death do you part, I have done it all.
I pride myself on my unique, original and spontaneous ceremonies.
I adore public spots, they are very economical and beautiful. Think Beaches! Think Mountains! Think Waterfalls and Beautiful ponds!
I am a true destination wedding specialist! A Destination Wedding is any wedding not held in a traditional church! So use your imagination.
I was ordained in 2000, for over 10 years I have performed non-discriminating weddings, joining couples in love forever. Someone asked me once "are Gay Weddings different from Straight weddings?", I paused and then I answered "YES"! When a Gay Couple stands before God, their families and me and commits to joining with their partner for the rest of their lives, it is a privilege that they do not take lightly. The intensity of feeling, the depth of love, and level of commitment is tremendous.
When they have come before me to join in union, it is against all odds, all nay sayers and they join hands and look into the eyes of their family and now they are UNITED, together forever. This courage and commitment is very different because it is fought for, so with every wedding we say "if you love me, love all of me".
I became ordained to honor a gay friend who is now in spirit. Over the course of our friendship, I watched unable to help, the discrimination and abuse that she endured. I will forever remember the pain of losing her life partner and the unspeakable treatment she received from her partner's family.
So in some small way, I want to help - I join my little voice with the crowd and it becomes one voice stronger, one voice louder.
If you're looking for someone to help you create the perfect ceremony for your Los Angeles area wedding, give me a call.
