There for the Occasions in YOUR World!

It is the special occasions that create the lasting memories. I am so fortunate to have been a part of so many memories that are the significant occasions! We continue to be there for celebrations, life tributes, and the extra fun for the kid in us all!

Officiating the most important occasions in your family’s world!

All services and participation below are available to ALL people, all-inclusive to everyone with no prejudice, judgement, and 100% celebrating whomever you are and whomever you love and have loved! My world is all encompassing!

Ordained in 1979, I have had the honor to stand before over 2000 couples, to “make it official” married! No 2 weddings or ceremonies are ever the same. I have performed weddings throughout Texas and in Hawaii! For other states obtaining officiant privileges for each state is easily obtained.

I also humbly stand to speak of someone that has passed on from this world to the next, giving a family and friends comfort, peace, and an appropriate respectful tribute that celebrates their loved one(s).

Ceremonies for you include:

Weddings– It’s YOUR day…let’s work together for your dream day!

Traditional Christian Service– a service with scripture, Biblical application, prayers, and communion if desired. Presence of God in all aspects of ceremony. This is the “church wedding” type of ceremony. Traditions of requested specific denominations are included.

“God Lite” Ceremony– a more laid back service with a blessing/prayer or two, and words of celebration, love, vows and commitment. Not feeling like “in church” but respecting all faiths.

Civil Ceremony– no religion or prayers. A ceremony of love, commitment, pledges, and vows.

“Before you go to your destination” Wedding– if your special day is on a beach, or other destination overseas, it is recommended to have an official/legal ceremony here at home beforehand. These tend to be a “bare bones” meeting that is private, just fulfilling the legal requirements conducted by a legally registered known officiant.

Themed Weddings– honoring the theme of YOUR wedding. Your officiant should blend in and be a part of your dream. Past themed weddings include: western/cowboy, beach, formal, historic, and dressed utilizing the wedding colors. You can even have “Santa” perform your Christmas Wedding. (Please note: Santa performs your ceremony but the marriage license is signed by my legal signature.)

Re-declarations of Vows – These ceremonies occur when a married couple wishes to stand and re-dedicate and declare their continued love and commitment. This is also a time a couple reconciles to renew their vows. This is a wonderful time for couples that have been married for many years to celebrate their anniversary with a declaration of their original, or new, vows and love!

Baptisms, Christenings, & Blessings

Baptism of all ages, and christening, blessing,dedication of newborn, and all age children. Traditional and custom designed ceremonies are presented.  

Celebrations of Life, Funerals, & Memorial Tribute

“What do we say?” It’s the toughest task- to create the best tribute to someone that means the world to you. I help with that. Just as the above weddings have many different ways the same applies to these tributes. I have had these services in churches, homes, lakeside, in parks, cemeteries, under sentimental  trees, and more. One of the nicest compliments I receive often is when I am told, “it really felt like you have known him/her for years”.

Santa and Mrs. Claus!

        Make a forever memory with the ultimate “special guests”…Mr. and Mrs. Claus! We are the best! Let’s talk about your holiday party!

  • Classroom

  • Parade
  • In home on Christmas Eve- your child secretly watches Santa leave gifts

  • Or whatever you might have in mind!
