About Us

I officiate non-denominational, interfaith, cross-cultural and same sex wedding ceremonies.

Ordained 20+ years, I’ve met hundreds of good, funny, wonderful couples. I’ve officiated wedding ceremonies as diverse as Muslim/Hindu, Muslim/Jewish, Christian/Atheist.

I’ve seen a pot-bellied pig as a ring bearer and a bride’s cousin belly dance with a sword balanced on her head as she presented the rings!

I’m not going to say that I’ve seen it all, but I’ve witnessed a lot. And I’ve loved it all!

I believe that in a wedding, a couple invites family and friends to celebrate the great good they have found in each other — and bear witness as they pledge to continue to create a life-giving life together. Folks put aside the messiness of daily life and remember what really matters — love, loyalty, family, friends. This is what I help a couple celebrate. . .

I don’t have pre-printed ceremonies as I work with a couple to create a ceremony that reflects them. Five years after your wedding no one will remember what I said, but they’ll remember the tone and feeling of it all.

Many couples who come to me desire a ceremony that honors the sacredness of what they’re doing without it being religious or denominational. “Sacred” (not “stuffy”) in the sense that when you give your word to another, that giving is bigger than the two of you.

Your life together began the first moment you met. Your wedding is an oasis along your journey— celebrating the life you’ve created and honoring the life you’re committed to creating.

My hope is that your ceremony provides a touchstone for your life together.

  • JP was beyond our expectations. My wife and I felt extremely comfortable up there; we did a circular ceremony so the concept seemed overwhelming at first with 200+ people around us but we couldn't of enjoyed it more with his calming words & energy up there. We even had a special request on the specific timing of saying our "I Do’s," but we knew that it wouldn't necessarily be perfect given such demanding requests…but low & behold JP somehow timed it to the minute and made the ceremony absolutely PERFECT at 4:55pm! We had endless compliments from religious and non-religious guests on the job that JP did officiating our wedding. JP does a fantastic job of relating the ceremony to everyone present, regardless of beliefs. We highly recommend using JP, he is more than welcome to help and meet with you as many times as you want in preparation for your wedding! Unlike a lot of professionals out there.
