My Wedding Officiant Page

Serving Couples in the DMV

I understand the challenge of finding just the right wedding officiant. Your wedding day is a BIG day, and it should be beautiful and fun! My wife and I had an amazing wedding experience May 26, 2001. Since then it’s been one of my passions to provide the same kind of experience for others.

A Little Bit About Me

I have been a pastor since 2004. In that time I’ve been a part of more than 75+ weddings. I’ve received a lot of positive feedback from brides, grooms, and their families. And I’ve been voted “The Best of Weddings” from TheKnot.com the last two years.

I’m currently part of the leadership team for a new church in Gaithersburg, MD. Restoration Church is a life-giving multiethnic church where people from all walks of life can find restoration with God and people, and be unleashed for fulfill their God-given potential. I’m excited to serve couples in the area. My wife and I love relationships and are honored to play any helpful role we can from dating to wedding day, through parenting.

I have been happily married to my wife, Laura since 2001. We have three sons (13, 11, and 9) and a baby girl (2 in June). We live in Germantown, MD, 20 miles northwest of Washington, D.C. In my free time, I enjoy reading, running, mountain biking, working out, playing sports, and just about anything with my family.
