‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’

I feel blessed to perform wedding ceremonies because the love between couples always opens my heart. It’s a privilege to be a part of that love.

“…It was truly magical.”

Since college I have studied religious teachings and spiritual truth. For over 40 years I have practiced meditation and I have followed a spiritual path.

“…It was perfect and you did a fantastic job…”
—–Vicki & Doug Sigg

I have been married to Arlene for over 40 years and I like to think I know something of what works in a relationship.

Being a workaholic, when I can steal a moment I like to swim laps, watch Hallmark movies (my wife likes to tease me about that) and I try to live in the moment.

What advice would I give to newlyweds? Marriage takes work. Make your partner the most important person in your life. Have enough love in your heart to make your partner’s happiness the main focus. Keep a sense of humor. Show affection every day. When issues come up, communicate honestly with each other. That’s the key to bringing the relationship back to where you want to be.
