“Working with Heath was an absolute dream. He was so responsive and easy to work with. Planning our ceremony was the easiest part of planning our wedding because of Heath. Guests were saying it was the best wedding ceremony they have been attended.” ~ Suzy
“We did not want an overly religious wedding and had several modifications to the traditional ceremony. Heath was willing to work with us to create the ceremony that we envisioned. He did an excellent job and we enjoyed working with him. By far the vendor which caused the least stress in a very hectic time!” ~ Jennifer
I have been a wedding officiant for over 20 years, and I'll help you make any location work - churches, beaches, community centers, restaurants, bars, parks, reception halls, back patios, boats, you name!

In Florida, marriage licenses are issued by county clerk's offices. When picking up the license, both individuals must to be present, with valid I.D., in order to sign and pay for the license. Florida marriage licenses are valid for 60 days. Meaning, you have 60 days after picking up the license to get married.
PLEASE NOTE: For Florida residents, there is a mandatory 3-day waiting period after picking up the license. This means that the couple must wait a minimum of 3 days to be wed after receiving the license. However, if you are getting married in Florida but are not Florida resident, this 3-day wait rule does not apply.
Once you attain your license from your local courthouse, I take care of the rest! I sign and complete the license, send you a PDF copy of the original, and send the original back to the courthouse. The courthouse then processes your license and mails the original license to your home address.
Yes. I will provide and run a PA system for the wedding ceremony (not the reception). It's perfect for weddings (inside or outside). Provide me with your sound needs, including the order of songs. I will take care of the rest! Fee - $150.
However, if you need the service of a professional DJ and larger sound system, I would be happy to recommend some quality options.

“Heath was the perfect fit for me and my husband. We would consider ourselves spiritual, but not church-going religious. We needed something low key, but still respectful of the sanctity of marriage and he was the perfect fit. We thank you Heath - and if I had to do it all again - I’d definitely choose Heath.” ~ Sara
“Your officiant plays such a crucial role in creating the tone and atmosphere for your ceremony. Heath created a welcome and friendly environment for all of our guest. He lead the two of us, from that day we were engaged, to right down the aisle with great communication, flexibility and creativity. Not only did we have a great ceremony, but now we have an even better friend.” ~ Kate
“Heath has done many weddings in the past so he has lots of suggestions to offer for the ceremony. He helped us stitch together how the entire day was going to go, and was quick to respond to any of our questions. He arrived early for the ceremony and made sure everyone was calm and where they needed to be. We never wondered where he was or what was going to happen next. He was in complete command even though he had a gentle way of directing. His delivery was easy and natural. We received many compliments about Heath and we are so happy that he officiated our wedding!” ~ Rob + Robyn
"Heath was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I hired him for our wedding on 5/18/2019. He had many options when it came to the ceremony when we started planning. Pastor Heath is very kind and easy to talk to. He was easy to get a hold of and made the entire process a breeze. He is professional and made the ceremony flow perfectly. Thank you Pastor Heath!!!!" ~ Michelle + Chad
