Frequently Asked Quesions

q: How far in advance should I confirm a wedding officiate?

A: While many weddings are planned up to a year in advance, many weddings are also planned in a few months, weeks or even a matter of days. I am here for anyone's timeframe. However, I do suggest, that you book your officiant as soon as you and your fiancée have chosen a date.

A: My goal is to accomodate all brides and grooms in need of an officiant on their special day. Whenever there is time on my schedule, that time is yours! So, please give me a call, whether it is simply to ask for assistance or because you need a last minute officiant.

Q: What about last minute requests?
Q: How do we get our wedding license?

A: Contact the County Clerk office of the Texas county in which you are to be married.

    Texas marriage licenses are valid in all counties regardless of the county where the license was issued.

A: Yes. Marriage is a divine institution ordained by God for all men and women. I require that you love each other and have a desire to be married. I will not refuse any couple (a man and a woman) the right to be married, regardless of one's past, race, color, religion, or denominational background. I do not encourage divorce, but I do understand things do and can happen in marriages. I count it as a joy to help couples move from their past into a new beginning, that marriage can offer. I believe our God is the God of many chances.

Q: Will you marry couples of different faiths
    or Those previously divorced?
