Gloucester Weddings was born from my passion for and love of weddings. I specialize in personalized, custom-designed wedding ceremonies, crafted with the utmost thought and care, reflecting the uniqueness of your relationship and personal beliefs. I truly believe your wedding should be as special as you are!

I have performed over 600 wedding ceremonies, and take great pride and pleasure in giving you precisely what you want; formal or informal, traditional or non-traditional, quick and simple, relaxed and casual. Your wedding ceremony can take place at any location you desire, and I can be dressed however you like, in a traditional robe, suit, or casual dress. During the summer months, I have performed wedding ceremonies on the beach in shorts and sandals, and during the winter, in boots and a winter coat in the middle of a December snowstorm!

I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your special day. For couples living in another state or country, I offer videoconferencing and phone calls. I want you to get to know me, so that you feel completely comfortable and trust that your wedding will be everything you expect it to be.

Once selected, I send a wedding packet that provides you with countless options for vows, readings and religious and cultural ceremonies, all of which can be customized for your particular ceremony. Each ceremony is written from “scratch”, and details from your lives can be woven into the ceremony, if desired. You will always have complete and total creative control over your ceremony. You may write your own vows and incorporate readings, songs or special ceremonies some of which include children and parents. I am always here for you to provide expert and gentle guidance throughout the process.

I am available for weddings on a moment’s notice, days, nights and weekends. For small weddings and elopements looking for a special setting, I enjoy an exclusive relationship with several historic properties on the North Shore, some with ocean views and magnificent gardens that offer special privileges and pricing to my clients only. I would be happy to assist you in selecting a location.

Wedding officiants are all different. There are vast differences in style, presentation, warmth, comfort, charisma, appearance and energy. I have performed hundreds of wedding ceremonies and promise to provide you and your guests with an exceptional, joyous, personal, and memorable experience, delivered with the utmost professionalism.

Your engagement should be a joyous and magical time. As you prepare for one of the most important days in your lives, I promise to make planning your wedding ceremony enjoyable and stress free. Together, we will work as a team to ensure that your wedding day dreams become treasured wedding day memories!
