Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! As a non-denominational minister / officiant, my approach is to help you get married by conducting a wedding ceremony that celebrates the commitment between two people who love one another, by reflecting the values, beliefs, and meaningful aspects of your relationship. It is important that your wedding ceremony be an authentic expression of you as individuals and as a couple, and I will assist you every step of the way.
I believe that it is important for a couple to be comfortable with both their wedding minister and their wedding ceremony. My style is open, caring, friendly, yet detail-oriented. Many couples find this approach appealing, making it easier for us to work together. I can make recommendations, which many couples choose to follow, but these recommendations are only guidelines and are certainly not etched in stone.
Quite often, couples who come to me to be their wedding officiant have different religious traditions and ask me to incorporate both religions into their particular ceremony. I am pleased to perform weddings that blend two faiths or go in a direction that better meets how the two of you view life, the world and your relationship. Though there are differences, in the words, traditions, texts, practices, and cultures of the world, in the end, we are all seeking the greater light of life, and a beautiful wedding ceremony can be built around those universal beliefs.
I am here to help you celebrate your love and commitment, and will do so in a manner that brings the most meaning and joy to your ceremony. I will conduct your ceremony with the utmost consideration and respect so that you and all in attendance will feel and know the love that binds your union.

Great Wedding officiant and LOTS of fun wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Greg and Amy are true professionals. Everything came together perfectly and the ceremony written was perfect for Donald and me. We were engaged on St. Patrick's Day and married on St. Patrick's Day. The Gordons listened,incorporated our ideas and created a perfect ceremony specifically for us. I would rate them 6 stars if I could. The Gordons are very warm and gracious people.

Kasey and Steve's wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes, Greg and his wife Amy were so personable from the start. We met them over coffee, and they really dug deep into getting to know Steve and I. This really made the whole experience that much more personal. Greg and Amy spent our rehearsal dinner with us, getting to know our families, so that when our big day finally came Steve and I felt really comfortable up at the alter getting married! :)

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

I think the whole experience of getting to know Greg and Amy, and them making a lasting impression on our lives was the most unexpected. Steve and I hired a minister as one of the last items we did in our wedding planning. We really just needed someone up there saying "do you Steve, and do you Kasey?" but what we got in Greg and Amy was amazing. They made us feel so comfortable,as well as our family and guests. Our parents loved them. They really spent time getting to know us as a couple. We really appreciate them making the whole experience of the ceremony, icing on the cake!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Greg and Amy wrote the ceremony, but they were very detailed in asking the questions that made it personal to us. ...From our comfort level with religious views, to asking if we had pet names for each other, to funny little quirks about each of us. Subtle jokes during the ceremony made everyone laugh, and made those of us that were nervous at ease.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone said the ceremony was so natural and so "Kasey and Steve". Steve calls me "darlin", they wrote into the ceremony "I now pronounce you "official darlins!" This was a great token. Also, Greg and Amy stayed for our reception and spent much time getting to know our guests, which everyone loved as well.

May I Suggest Min Gordon?

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

I was very comfortable with the Minister Gordon. Along with his wife Amy, they were quite welcoming to my wife and our family and friends.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

While my wife and I were willing to participate in a very low-key wedding, Minister Gordon suggested the Park of Roses---a wonderful idea indeed.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

My wife and I took advantage of the lovely scenery at the Park of Roses and encouraged family and friends to take pictures of us---as a couple and as a family.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

In all honesty, we received comments indeed, yet I don't recall any particular comment which stands out among the rest.

Vendor's Response

I enjoyed working with Jermaine and his wife. I normally officiate 1-3 weddings per week. I advertise that I can officiate any type of weddings including those to be done quickly. This was the fastest wedding, as far as length of time for the ceremony, I have officiated all year. Jermaine called me on a Monday and said "I want to get married as quickly as possible, anywhere, even at your home." I asked him how fast he wanted the ceremony completed. Jermaine answered "Immediately." I asked what type of ceremony he desired. Jermaine said, "A fast one - no more than 5-10 minutes." I asked him if he and his fiance had prepared vows. He said, "Yes, we have." I said, I know a beautiful place and you can be married this Wednesday. "How does that sound?" Jermaine said, "That would be great." It was a beautiful day and the background of roses was perfect. I gave Jermaine a reduction in price because he is a military man. I am sure he and his wife, Kanisha, are doing great!
