Marriage is an amazing institution, a combination of public announcement and the most intimate and complex of relationships. A good marriage is formed of respect, love, and compassion, and grounded in personal integrity. It is not something to be entered into lightly, and yet it requires nothing so much as a good sense of humor. 

Whether it is a private moment on the beach, or a formal gathering,
your wedding should reflect the values, beliefs and experiences that each of you brings to the relationship. I believe in helping couples to create a personal ceremony, one that would be both meaningful and fun for everyone. Many will testify to my success!

I have been performing wedding and commitment ceremonies on Cape Cod since 1999. I've married couples on mountain tops and in historic inns. While minister of the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House in Provincetown I lobbied for same-sex marriage at the Massachusetts and Maryland State Houses, and performed my first legal gay wedding in Provincetown on May 17th, 2004. Since then I've officiated for over 300 same-sex weddings and another couple hundred or so straight couples.

As a Unitarian Universalist minister, I bring both appreciation and experience of many religious traditions. My own family includes (but is not limited to) practicing Jews, Catholics, fundamentalist Christians, Eastern Orthodox, Science of Mind members, UUs, and devoted skeptics. I have conducted interfaith weddings, pagan handfasts, and civil ceremonies. I respect and enjoy the diversity of human expression.
