,.Now It’s Time to Plan Your Wedding Ceremony

You and your best friend have decided to take the next step in your relationship by professing your love for each other and are beginning to make the necessary plans to marry.

The first and most important thing you will need to do once you have decided on a date for your ceremony is to obtain a wedding license.

In this present day there are many ways you can make one of the most important days in your life happen

You can plan an elaborate affair with engraved invitations, flowers, a full cocktail hour and a sit down dinner along with music in a catering hall or restaurant.

You can have a ceremony in your home or yard and invite those most dear to you.

You can elope and invite two of your best friends and get married in a park or on a beach.

Or we can meet and have a quick simple license signing exchange of vows ceremony.

The planning for a wedding can be stressful, especially when you’ve been dreaming about it since childhood. You want everything to go perfectly and enjoy this special day as much possible!

Let the blessings of marriage be yours as we embark on this journey together!

Let me help you create a wedding ceremony that’s uniquely yours.
I’ve been working with couples for years, and I know how important it is to find someone who understands your vision of what should happen on this special day – especially when there are no two weddings alike!

I Will Provide:

  • A unique moment in time that will be cherished by you and your partner for years to come. I want nothing more than help create an emotional, personalized ceremony filled with creativity so it fits both of our personalities without being too long or boring!
  • Locations are primarily in Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens, NY as well as Middlesex Monmouth Ocean Mercer and Hunterdon Counties of New Jersey.
  • A wedding rehearsal, there should also be some time spent practicing walks and rituals in order not only feel more confident on the big day but avoid any last minute mishaps or mistakes!
  • Management of guests on your wedding day so you don’t have to.
  • On your wedding day, I arrive between 30-60 minutes early. This helps with last minute details and some calming of nerves!
  • Submission of the marriage license.


Together we can make your special day one you will remember. Let’s begin your magical journey to a lifetime of happiness together.
