Officiant Services for New Jersey
I believe that all people, all faiths, and all orientations are important. I bring my love of people into every ceremony that I create. In all the ceremonies that I create, the thing that I find most important is that the people involved have the ceremony that they want. Therefore, although the following philosophies are what I believe in, I work with you and pay close attention to your wishes. As I always say, it is not what I believe that is important, but what you believe in and want. Since it is your ceremony, the most important thing is that you are happy and satisfied with it and have the rituals and traditions in it that you want . The thing that I most like to hear after I perform a ceremony is that is was just what you wanted.
Weddings and Civil Union Ceremonies
When I create a wedding ceremony, vow renewal or civil union ceremony, I meet with the couple and discuss the traditions and rituals that are important to them. I suggest things that might enhance their ceremony and make it special. I find out as much as possible about the relationship that the two people have so that I can share it with the guests at the ceremony. I believe that it is important for guests to get a sense of who is getting married and what their relationship is like. When I officiate at a ceremony, I bring love, caring and a sense of the joy to the occasion. Since I know that people like to be included, I encourage the couples to include family and friends in the ceremony.
I believe that baby namings are very special occasions. Not only are we welcoming a new life into the community, but we are celebrating the love that created this new life. I like to remind everyone of the hope for the future that every new child gives us.
When I officiate at a funeral, I believe that there are two purposes for it. The first is to honor the deceased and the second is to comfort the bereaved. I find out as much as I can about the deceased so that I can share the things that made that person special. I also encourage family and friends to get up and share any special memories that they have of the deceased. The good memories are something that the family and friends can remember. I find it helps with the healing process, which is what the bereaved need.
All of the above are important occasions that deserve important ceremonies. I would love to work with you to create that special ceremony that you deserve.
