Congratulations on taking the step of getting married! I would be honored to officiate your wedding! I have performed dozens of weddings and provided premarital counseling for so many couples. I will help you create a meaningful ceremony for your wedding day.
Premarital Counseling. Before I perform a wedding, I generally ask couples to engage in 4-6 sessions of pre-marital or pre-engagement counseling. I am a certified Prepare-Enrich provider. You can also seek out counseling from another qualified pastor or a marriage health professional.
Fees. You can expect a range of $300-$500, depending on the details.

Non-Discrimination. I am ordained through The Table Church. We are a Christ-centered, LGBTQ-affirming, inclusive, and antiracist church. Couples have no need to fear being discriminated against or rejected due to their sexuality, gender, race, or prior marriage history.
The Table Church will not ordain or credential anyone who intends to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, citizenship, national origin, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by law. The Table Church will take all accusations of discrimination seriously. Discrimination may be a basis for discipline or termination of ordination or credentialing. You can contact the elders of The Table Church to inform them of discrimination. firstname.lastname@example.org
Pastoral Discretion. The decision to perform a marriage ceremony remains at my discretion. The decision to perform a marriage ceremony is one of wisdom and discernment, as well as practicality. I may decline to perform a marriage ceremony due to scheduling or travel conflicts. If, during pre-marital or pre-engagement counseling, it becomes clear to me that the marriage would be unwise or unsafe for the couple in question (for reasons not related to discrimination as stated above), I retain the right to refrain from performing the wedding ceremony. I will provide the couple with explicit and written reasoning and evidence as to why I feel the marriage would be unwise or unsafe.
