The reason I am Orlando’s Premier Wedding Officiant is simple.  I love what I do which translates into caring and concern for the couples who have placed their faith in me to conduct a ceremony they will never forget.  The couples that I work with provide me with the input necessary to create their custom ceremony.  We work together using a planning kit that provides many options for them to consider. No two custom ceremonies are ever entirely the same. It is amazing how the story of each couple comes to light. Once everything is set, I become focused on one thing only – conducting the most beautiful heartfelt ceremony possible. I love conducting wedding ceremonies, and I try to bring that love with me to each and every one I perform. I am a Florida Notary and have been authorized by section 741.07, Florida Statutes to conduct all types of ceremonies including religious and non-religious styles. Finally, I serve as Vice President of Sensational Ceremonies the largest officiating company in the United States, and have personally conducted thousands of wedding ceremonies.


With over a decade of experience and thousands of weddings conducted, we know what works. We specialize in creating beautiful ceremonies that leave lasting memories. But more than that, we know the Orlando wedding market. We know the vendors and venues. Based upon the specific needs of our couples, we refer our couples to those vendors we feel would be a perfect match. You will need a Florida Marriage License. We can help with that. Married by Mail is a company that is well respected within the industry for the procurement of your Florida Marriage License. They take the time and stress out of securing a Florida Marriage License for International, In-State and Out-of-State couples.   If you need them, they will be happy to assist. We are here for you!

Individual Approach

We agree on on everything, and then my job gets even more exciting.We are able to perform your dream ceremony! Just you and me. You are important to me. Do you want to have a religious ceremony? We can do that. Do you want a non-religious ceremony? We can do that as well. How about a mix of the two? Consider it done!

We cannot stress enough the importance of your input in creating the ceremony of your dreams. Our planning kit provides the fuel for your thoughts. You will use that fuel to draw an outline that will fit your needs exactly. We will work with you. We will exchange ideas. We will agree on exactly what will be preformed at your ceremony. Down to “I Do” and We Will”. Together we will create your vision.

Couple Satisfaction

Our reviews speak for themselves. Over and over, we hear the same words. “They were so kind” Lon is considerate” “Lon looks the part”. “He responds quickly”. We do our best to deliver a heartfelt ceremony that you will love and remember. We enjoy seeing onlookers in a wedding crying. Those are tears of joy.

Initial Consultation

Let’s talk. I will ask questions and you can as well. We will get to know one another, and in the process we will decide what style ceremony will best fit your dream vision. If we cannot meet in person, we can talk via telephone, or even FaceTime. It will be fun!

Discussion & Planning

This is where the fun begins. After you book my services, I will email you our planning kit, and if we have not already met in person to review it, I will set an appointment with you to do so.

If we cannot meet in person we can talk via telephone or even Skype.

Then you will begin to select items that you like, and eventually, you will provide me with a Word document with your selections. I will make suggestions, and finally we will have a draft of the ceremony of your dreams.

Customizing Your Ceremony

It is all up to you!  Those final touches are your choice. “Take this word out”. “Add this phrase”. “I want to add a memory statement”. “I want to thank my parents”. “We have children, and I want to include them”. Those are just a few of the “touches” that make your ceremony special and unique. Let’s get to work on them!

Wedding Day

I will arrive between 30 – 45-minutes before start time. If there is a sound system, I will do a sound check, and if a marriage license is involved, I will have it in hand for the ceremony. If Married By Mail has provided the license, I will already have the license upon my arrival. Yes! They are that good! I will say hello to you, and get set to perform the ceremony! The beautiful, customized, ceremony that we have created!

Making it Official!

I, of course, pronounce you during the ceremony, if you are holding a wedding. If applicable, my service is not complete until I execute and file your Florida Marriage License with the clerk of court. I always do that within 24-hours of the wedding.
