A: The only requirement for a ceremony is the
couple and a valid license. Your ceremony can be
held at your home... in a park.. where ever your
heart desires (within legal boundaries, of course).
In your back yard, your church, your living room,
A: Yes, I am available for spiritual or celebratory or
even non-spiritual ceremonies - call me and we'll
discuss the various parts of the ceremony and how I
can help you create your specific ceremony.
A: There are no restrictions I can think of - ask if you
are not sure! I love children in ceremonies! Definitely

personalized to suit each couple's needs and wants. I
will work with you to create the ceremony and vows
that will make your day special.
A: Absolutely not, except for saying "I do" or "I will".
The ceremony should be full of joy and memories!...
not the stress of remembering lines that will not

A: Yes - In Texas, the 72-hour waiting period after
obtaining the license must be followed (unless in the
case of a military person being shipped out, where a
judge can usually be prevailed upon to allow less than
72-hours). The Texas license is good for 30 days.
In Oklahoma, there is no waiting period - drive to the
courthouse, get your license, get married! Oklahoma
licenses are good 10 days from the date of issue.
Durant, Oklahoma (Hwy 75) is easy to get to and has
very friendly office staff. Call me and we can plan to
meet in front of the courthouse in the gazebo!
