"A Stress Free Ceremony!"
I am a non-denominational pastor that can perform your ceremony on both sides of the IA/IL Quad Cities and the rest of the country for that matter.
I do not require any special classes but am willing to make arragements to do pre-marriage counseling if that is desired. I am also bi-lingual and can perform your ceremony including Spanish to give honor to hispanic relatives in this blending of two cultures.
One of the stresses that concerns many brides is not offending observant Catholic family members. I have performed many, many ceremonies where this was the concern. Let me encourage you that there are things we can do that will ease the hearts and minds of observant family members. I have even had many of them compliment our ceremonies after they attended.
I can also suggest several ways we can include children in blended family ceremonies.
As a help, before we meet, I have included several possible ceremony elements. Click on the various areas listed in the right hand column or simply scroll down:
Give me a call or send me an email inquiry. Let's plan you "Perfect Moment."
