elegant. engaging. exquisite.

reviving the art of the personal wedding ceremony for the savvy couple & those with a sacred slant.








Your wedding ceremony should be uniquely yours.


You've been dreaming and planning everything for your wedding celebration. You've chosen the perfect flower arrangements, you've decided that your guests will blow bubbles during your recessional & light sparklers when you leave the reception to match the magic of the night, and you and your wedding planner have even concluded that air conditioning must be included in the outdoor restrooms.

You have planned everything. 

Everything that is except for the ceremony. Because the officiant will naturally know how to navigate and craft a ceremony that reflects you and your spouse to be . . . right?

And yet . . . how many ceremonies have you attended that truly captured the character of the couple? And how many of those ceremonies were terribly dull and all you wanted to do was find your way to your first cocktail?

Officiants on the whole do not have a good track record when it comes to delivering personal and engaging ceremonies. 

So unfortunate . . . because outside of memorial services wedding celebrations gather the most friends & family you'll ever have in one setting. And they're all gathered for you. So shouldn't your ceremony reflect how remarkable your relationship is? Isn't your story of love worth being enjoyed by all who are with you?

It's all in how you answer those questions. You must decide whether or not your ceremony will be an event that equals your desires. 

So here's the heart of the matter. If you decide to do nothing about the ceremony do not expect a meaningful and engaging ceremony to magically unfold according to your dreams. It won't. It never does. And odds are your wedding ceremony too will become another tally mark in the growing movement of dull and forgettable wedding ceremonies.

If, however, you decide that you'd prefer an elegant and engagingly personal ceremony be prepared to hear something akin to this from family & friends, "That was easily one of the most moving and beautiful wedding ceremonies I've ever attended. I was honored to be there. And I also feel like I know you better as a couple."

Your wedding ceremony should be uniquely yours. Because your story as a couple is compelling and it is worth being enjoyed.

Making the decision is the hardest part–the next steps are rather simple and fun.

Your first unspoken role was to put the audience at ease and you did that exceptionally . . . It was emotional, but comfortable–the stiffness dissipated within seconds of the beginning of the ceremony. The ceremony set the tone for the rest of the night, and I really mean that. It goes without saying that afterwards people were highly complimentary of the ceremony–both immediately following and in the days after the wedding. There were tears, laughter and of course feelings of swelling pride and happiness for us. People asked me if we had known you personally for years, because our interactions just felt that familiar. Thanks again for being the ultimate professional and organizer, the ‘orchestra conductor,’ spiritual guide and a friend throughout this entire process!”

“Brian created an electric atmosphere. He was able to harness the gravity of the event and deliver a powerful ceremony. Everyone was on the edge of their seats and he left everyone wanting more. Holly and I are eternally grateful and so honored to have had Brian officiate the happiest day of our lives.

Our ceremony went very VERY well. We received a lot of compliments all night long about it. That’s all because of you. Thanks Brian! You’re the best!

Brian is amazing and a real pro. From getting to know us as a couple, to the rehearsal, to the day-of, he was always there to help everything run smoothly. But more importantly, he fit in so well it felt like we were being married by a close friend. We love you Brian!
