I had the honor of serving as Mayor of Charlottesville from 2008-2012 and was asked to officiate a number of weddings in that capacity. Even after leaving office, the requests kept coming in and I was delighted to comply with each and every one. I enjoy performing weddings so much that I have now gone into business as a part-time wedding officiant.
I specialize in performing relatively simple, civil ceremonies that can be custom-designed to reflect the personalities, values and backgrounds of the soon-to-be-betrothed. I am not an ordained minister but am happy to weave religious elements into the ceremony upon request. While I am legally eligible to perform weddings anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virginia, my primary geographic focus is Charlottesville and the surrounding counties.
