FAQs


What areas do you serve?

I proudly serve all of New Jersey, New York City, and Eastern Pennsylvania including Philadelphia.


We have no idea where to get started with our license.  Can you help?

I can!  The state of New Jersey publishes all the information you need to start the marriage certificate process at this web address:  http://www.state.nj.us/health/vital/registration-vital/marriage-licenses/


Do you accommodate non-religious and interfaith couples?
Yes, in fact this is my specialty.  I write a unique ceremony from scratch for every one of my couples.  I have proudly delivered ceremonies for couples where one or both people were agnostic, atheist, humanist, Catholic, Jewish, Greek Orthodox, Protestant and Muslim.  No matter what your spirituality or belief system, I pride myself on my ability to build just the ceremony you want.  And you get to review and approve well ahead of time.


Do you have experience with same-sex ceremonies?

I do indeed!  Nearly half of my ceremonies to date have been for same-sex couples.  Of my first 20 ceremonies, 19 were for gay or lesbian couples, and I will always be especially grateful for their trust in me as a newbie officiant just getting started in a competitive business!


Do you have sample ceremonies we could look at for inspiration?

I do.  Please just let me know you are interested in seeing my samples, and I will send you some, with no obligation to you.  Please just note these original ceremonies remain my own intellectual property and I reserve all of my rights in their regard, including my right not to have them put to use without my express written consent.


What helpful resources can you recommend?  

For even a simple wedding, there is plenty to do.  I highly recommend creating a free account on Weddingwire.com, where you can not only view my reviews but also find a ton of free tools to take some of the pressure off your shoulders.  You can also see my reviews here.


Reverend Stephan, are you a Christian minister?

I was raised in a laid-back Lutheran household right here in New Jersey. My ordinations are through the Universal Life Church and the Church of Spiritual Humanism, which are all-inclusive churches and do not place additional emphasis on any specific religious tradition.  I do not preach, I simply officiate weddings.  With that said, I have delivered ceremonies to couples from a very broad range of religious traditions, and whatever yours is, I am sure I can deliver a ceremony you will always cherish. 


Do you offer pre-Cana or any similar instruction?

Unfortunately, I do not provide pre-Cana instruction.  Of course, if you would just like to hear my opinion of what makes a successful marriage, I have eleven years' experience at that, and would be happy to share a few stories if you would like to hear them!
