Thank you for considering Affirmations as your Maine wedding ceremony officiant and congratulations on your engagement!

The decision to marry is an exciting one.  I would be honored to take part by officiating your marriage ceremony.  No Maine wedding ceremony officiant delivers a higher level of service, dedication, facilitation, expertise or flexibility.

Personal service:  It is a privilege to be given the responsibility of officiating your marriage here in Maine. From your first inquiry to the filing of your marriage license, I handle each task personally.

maine wedding ceremony officiantDedication:  I strive to exceed your expectations. Need to call me after hours, even quite late?  No problem.  Looking for local recommendations and don’t see what you need on my Vendors page?  Just ask.  I’m happy to help with anything you need.  Don’t think of me as just a seasoned Maine marriage officiant – Think of me as a general resource.

Event facilitation:  Every detail is addressed at your wedding rehearsal and in the moments before your wedding ceremony begins.  Everyone involved will be comfortable and prepared.  I’ll also coordinate with your vendors, allowing us all to do the best jobs we possibly can.

Expertise: (As much as I hate to admit I’m old enough to have been doing weddings this long) I bring the experience of having performed hundreds of ceremonies over the past 18 years down the aisle with me.  I consistently deliver engaging ceremonies which stir heartwarming emotion, laughter, and of course, just the right amount of guest-envy!  Using all sorts of tricks I’ve learned over the years, it’s smooth sailing for a flawless service.

Flexibility: Non-traditional marriages are the specialty of notaries public. As your officiant, I will hike trails, walk beaches, board vessels, don skis and brave the elements to officiate at your favorite Maine destination.  When it comes to writing the ceremony, your personal style, spiritual position and unique family structure is embraced.

Service after the service:  I personally hand deliver your marriage license to the town office in all but the rarest of circumstances.  Hand delivery prevents the original marriage license from being lost in the mail.  Trust me, that’s a hassle that nobody wants or needs.  Your license is kept on file in my office indefinitely should you ever need a copy.

Last but definitely not least…

Fun!  Your day should be full of fun.  I’m a wedding officiant, not a funeral practitioner.  So let’s keep this light!

Now, for some housekeeping items:
