Clergy Profile: I've served as a wedding minister in the South East United States for ten years, and recently joined Rose Ministries with the IOC Church. I was ordained through the Universal Life Church in 2002 because I am called to serve where mainstream clergy sometimes fear to tread.
I am happy to perform weddings for mixed gender or same gender couples - the only practical difference is the kind of paperwork I have to sign. The celebration of a couple's union with their community lies outside of taxes and court-houses, and more often these days even heterosexual couples are choosing a community wedding without any legal complications that may endanger benefits, pensions, or custody arrangements. Sometimes, also, couples will marry at the courthouse and choose later to do a community celebration - I'm good for that, too.
I am also available for infant and child dedications, rites of passage, blessingways, births, death rites, and memorial circles.
My particular gift lies in crafting wedding ceremonies and rites of passage that are meaningful for and accessible by not only the pagan couples and familes who need me as a minister but also by their guests. It is important to me for a couple to marry and pledge to one another in the language and with the rites they need to make that sacred. It is equally important to me that their typically non-pagan guests and witnesses be able to walk away thinking "Oh! That was lovely, and not at all what I expected, all things considered." In this way, we serve as an ambassador to the general public, who are mostly uneducated or, worse, misinformed about what most pagans do and believe.
Rates: This varies based on need and the complexity of the rite and preparations necessary. I am willing to travel, and have performed weddings in NC and WV as well as AL and GA - travel expenses are a factor more than 75 miles from Bhm.
