I am a non-denominational minister conveniently located in Williamstown, NJ. My specialty is weddings but I am also available for other occasions in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware at very affordable rates.

  • Funerals and Memorial Services
  • Baptisms, Home Blessings and other Special Events

I always strive to please my couples and clients by going above and beyond what is expected. Pleasing you is my main objective. Every service is as special to me as it will be for you. Each service is tailored to your individual wants and needs. Whatever you want in your ceremony I will make sure to include it and make your special day a memorable one. I always sit down with my wedding couples and other clients to personally create a ceremony that reflects exactly who you are and makes you feel the most relaxed and comfortable on what can be a very hectic day. My goal is to make that day go as smoothly as possible.

I have been active for several years as a wedding officiant and am very spiritually moved to be able to serve those who choose my services. My wife and I have been married for more than a  quarter century, yet I still thrill at being a part of a wedding. My goal as an officiant is to deliver happiness and joy, bring others together and spread love and understanding to all. I absolutely love working with wedding couples. It is so life-affirming to be a part of the linking of two separate lives into one stronger one.

Personally, I have no prejudices against anyone and strongly feel that all people are equal regardless of race, creed, sexual orientation or political leanings. If you love someone, you should be allowed to marry them. If they die, you should be able to mourn them in your own fashion. To be alive is wondrous, but to live is divine.

My personal spiritual belief is Universalist in nature. I have a very open mind and feel deeply in my heart that all faiths and beliefs are the correct ones for those who believe in them.




  1. Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony! It was short and sweet but had everything we wanted in the ceremony.

    • It was an honor to be a part of your wedding, Marissa! Third try was definitely the charm. Best of luck to you and Eric!
