  • Paul was all that we hoped for and more. Most importantly he gave us beautiful words for the ceremony. He created a beautiful moment for us, due to his thoughtful words and kind and open spirit. We could feel that he was blessing us with his words, and we felt a connection to him even though in many ways we were strangers, having only met previously online. Yet through the emails and the phone calls in advance of the ceremony, and due to the information he learned about us in those interactions and wove into the ceremony, we felt like we were being married by a true friend. Because we did a "confidential marriage license" there was no requirement for a witness, so it was just Paul and us, meaning no photographer etc. Somehow Paul juggled the ceremony itself and yet snapped some beautiful photos during the ceremony, without breaking the rhythm of the intimate moment. We could not have found the more perfect officiant for our perfect little ceremony.

    Thank you Cindy. I am humbled by your thoughtful comments and delighted that everything went as you had hoped. It was so fun to meet you both and spend time exploring as we hunted for photo's afterwards. peace and love, paul
