Dogs in Weddings

As a wedding officiant, my standard questionnaire for couples now includes questions about dogs attending the wedding. It’s become that popular a trend and I couldn’t be more pleased. Enjoy these photos of couples who feel the same way – dogs belong in weddings!

Madelaine & Jarrett, 2013

I wish I had married these two! Madelaine with her new husband, Jarrett and the world’s Cutest Corgis, Penny & Henry. I’ve known Madelaine all her life and it’s incredible that she survived my care and has become such a beautiful and happy person, now with a beautiful and happy family!

Ashley & Roderick, 2016

This must’ve been a gorgeous wedding! This is Ashley with her handsome husband Roderick & their 4-legged family members at their beautiful summer wedding in midcoast ME. The miniature Australian Shepherd on the right is Popeye, who not only attended the wedding, but had an amazing adventure right after… read all about it in my blog:  (Photo: Kate Crabtree Photography)

Flower Girl & Flower Dog, 2010

This is my Flower Girl, Gracie Ann Mooney and Cara Mia, my beloved Flower Dog.  Cara Mia was looking old then and has since passed away but will remain one of the best dogs I’ve ever known. I was honored to have her in my bridal party.  (Photo: Rudy Winston Photography)

what "I do"

❤  The three of us will have an Introductory meeting usually in person, via phone, FaceTime or Zoom.
❤  I’ll provide support and on-going consultations right up to ceremony time. From rehearsal, to the recessional and I can even advise not only your unique ceremony, but your processional order, programs and what your guests toss as you depart.
❤  I’ll assist with any questions you have regarding venues, vendors, your marriage license, certified copies and name changing
❤  I’ll direct your rehearsal covering everything from where everyone stands before the ceremony to where everyone goes for group photos after; from how to walk up the aisle, to the bridal handoff at the altar, we’ll get it all down pat & have fun doing it.
❤  On the big day, I’ll officiate your marriage ceremony, using a full script that we create & customize together.
❤  I’ll complete your marriage license, obtain witness signatures & promptly submit the marriage license to the county office that issued it.
❤  I’ll provide you with a decorative marriage certificate suitable for framing (not a legal document).


❤  Rates to officiate weddings (12+ guests) begin at $5000.

The wedding rate quoted for you will be inclusive – there will be no additional charges for travel, editing or anything else unless you make me stand on a cliff edge or wear a costume… see last bullet below.


❤  Rates to officiate elopements begin at $2500.

The elopement rate quoted will be inclusive of all charges and fees. I feel strongly about elopements. I provide as meaningful and memorable a ceremony with 2 witnesses as I do for a wedding with 200 guests.

additional charges

❤  Additional charges will only be applied if ceremonies end up requiring hikes, climbs, cliff edges, my feet in water, shticks, skits, costumes, wearing of anything tweed, winging it, being cold and/or speaking in foreign accents.
