I have been a professional Captain for over 25years and have performed many wedding ceremonies as captain. I have performed ceremonies on ships, yachts, boats, yacht clubs, on the beach, river banks, marina docks, private docks and even back yards, After performing a ceremony as captain of the ship I was asked from one of the guest if I would consider performing theirs – I said of course! At that wedding, a wedding planner saw the ceremony and then I was asked once more if I would perform a ceremony for a bride she was planning a wedding but was not on a ship or a church, It was my pleasure and just snowballed from there.
I like to make the ceremony fun but at the same time realizing that this is one of the most important life events they will have. It can be very stressful for the bride and groom and I like to relieve that stress and make them confident that their ceremony will be special and unique.
Although I am an ordained minister of the universal life church my ceremony is not based on any particular religious denomination and is beautiful in nature that portrays the values and commitments each couple is about to embrace.
My Knot tying ceremony is a unique nautical twist that is from the origin of the phrase “Tie the knot” which is symbolic of a tight bond of a couples love that will be ever lasting. Sand pouring ceremony is a beautiful way to combine and unite their love as their lives and family become one.
Let me help you with your special day and take the stress and worry of the ceremony away from all the other details of your wedding … Whether at a Beach Club, Yacht Club, Beach, Back yard, or Yacht. I will be there to help make your life event special..
