Our Services


We provide a variety of ceremonies including elopement ceremonies, traditional ceremonies, customized ceremonies, LGBTQ ceremonies, beach ceremonies, sunrise and sunset ceremonies, and other unique ceremonies.

If you wish to have a brief ceremony to marry the love of your life, I can make it happen. No matter how small a ceremony, I believe it should be meaningful and memorable. So, if city hall, your apartment, or a backyard is where you want to wed, let’s do this. $300 includes a small, traditional ceremony within 30 miles of Bristol, CT, and the signing and filing of the marriage license.

Elopement or Sign and Go Ceremony
For when you want something simple yet elegant. A brief exchange of vows and the officiant signs the marriage certificate.
Traditional Ceremony
If you’re looking for something familiar and timeless. Traditional vows and a ring exchange bring you together forever. No need for customization.
Customized Ceremony
A ceremony that truly reflects your special feelings towards one another. Traditional or personal vows, or a combination, including a ring exchange. One special item may be included.

What is included in our services?
All ceremonies include an in-person or virtual initial consultation between the minister and the couple.  Upon mutual completion of the contract, unlimited email, phone, text and video calls are available to finalize the ceremony.   Upon completion of the ceremony, the officiant will sign and date the marriage license.  He will also file the license with the municipality on the next business day.

A non-refundable booking fee of $50 is required at the time of contract to hold the date for the couple.

New Officiant Coaching

If you plan to have a friend or loved one perform the ceremony but would like them to take the proper actions to craft and perform the ceremony, a one hour coaching session is available.

One hour amateur coaching session
John will meet with the amateur officiant to coach them on getting ordained, crafting the ceremony, performing the ceremony and making sure the legalities are met.
