You may be planning a quick home wedding, something small in a local park, or be dreaming of a large wedding at a local hall. You and your fiance' may prefer a more traditional religious ceremony, a ceremony that combines elements of more than one tradition, or one that is completely secular. We have the skills, creativity, flexibility and desire to help you make it personal, and our fees are very reasonable.
