An Unforgettable day!

Larry embraced our rustic wedding idea, hiking to a remote location and made it absolutely special for us. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Larry was flexible with all the changes, motivated and willing to participate and most of all he truly brought the whole thing together with an incredible ceremony and words of blessing. Anyone lucky enough who has him on their wedding day would be blessed!

Very patient and responsible

Larry did an absolutely wonderful job. I was very busy with work and my communication was terrible. Larry’s patience was a blessing to work with. If you choose Larry I’m sure you will not be disappointed.

Happily Married

We found Larry to be very flexible, accommodating, and sensitive to our wishes. It was a wonderful day and Larry made sure that even our very small, private ceremony felt very special to us.

Lay Chaplain

I like to stay busy in my retirement from my "working" career. I enjoy golfing, reading, and woodworking among many other things. Most of all, I seek out new things for my wife and I to do and participate in together. We have been married 39 years, and have 5 fantastic grandchilden who we love spending time with.

I became a Lay Chaplain to help others who have found love in their lives. I take great pleasure working with couples to create their own special day.
