To all future wedding clients
Like everyone else these days, I've been following the development of the Covid-19 (corona) virus and the various rules and regulations that are developing to deal with it. And as a senior, with a few underlying medical issues of my own, I need to be cautious.
Taking that into account, I regret that I have come to the decision that I will not be accepting any new wedding clients until this serious health issue is behind us.
Should you decide to postpone your joining until better times prevail, I would encourage you to contact me again and I will happily work with you at that time to create a wedding ceremony that will meet all your expectations and that you and your guest will fondly remember for many years to come.
Until then, please stay home, stay safe, and most of all, stay healthy!
We are all in this together,
- Rev. Ernie
Congratulations on your Engagement!
Now you want to make sure everything will be perfect for your upcoming wedding.
As a Certified Wedding Officiant and Interfaith Minister with over 35 years of experience, it would be my distinct pleasure to help you celebrate the most important day of your lives– Your Wedding Day!

Whether you're looking for a ceremony that is elegantly formal and uniquely personalized, or informally simple and short (or somewhere in-between) I will work with you to make sure that your wedding ceremony is exactly what you want it to be: a reflection of the uniqueness of the two of you, and a celebration of love, joy, and commitment that you and your guests will remember for many years to come.
My Beliefs on Marriage
I firmly believe that two people who love each other and wish to commit their lives to one-another should be allowed to do so.
They should not be denied happiness because they are not affiliated with a church or organized religion, are of different religious beliefs, or are of the same gender. Therefore, I will gladly officiate the joining ceremonies of all who ask and are legally entitled.
I am pleased to offer my services throughout Southern Vermont, Southern Maine, most of New Hampshire and Eastern Massachusetts, although I will certainly consider traveling further upon request.
If you are not sure if your location is covered please ask.
Out of State
If you are coming to New England from another state and wish to have me perform your wedding while you are here, I would be honored to do so and will gladly assist you with the process by phone and email.
If you would like me to perform your wedding in a state not listed above, please email me with the specifics and I will be happy to explain the process. VIP Weddings are always welcomed; confidentiality is always assured.
I offer several ceremony packages designed to fit most every taste and budget. In general, my ceremonies range from $250 for an elopement near my home, to $350 for a more formal ceremony.
For those who want something more, I am honored to offer beautifully elegant and uniquely individualized, Semi-Custom and Custom Written ceremonies starting at just $450.
In some cases these prices can include travel, and may include my attendance at your rehearsal, however, in order to quote a price for your specific ceremony I will need to know more about your wedding preferences, requirements, and location. E-mail inquiries are always welcomed.
Special discounted pricing is available to all members of the active military.
If you haven't already done so, please check out my About Me page to learn more about my qualifications and abilities to perform the perfect wedding ceremony for you!
Some Kind Words
Reverend Ernie with Kaitlyn and Nick after their ceremony.
“We are beyond pleased with the officiant service that Reverend Ernie provided to us leading up to, and on our wedding day! He is so professional, and truly cares about getting to know the couples he agrees to marry. Reverend Ernie provided us with many ideas, readings, and examples to help us formulate a ceremony that worked for us as a couple. Reverend Ernie was an absolute joy to work with! I highly recommend this officiant to any couple that desires a truly personalized, well thought out ceremony from someone who loves what they do.”
