Getting Started

Non-Denominational Reverend
Serving All of Connecticut 

(203) 481-8773


   


















I meet with my couples at my home in West Haven Connecticut, looking over Long Island Sound.
It's a wonderful view, don't you agree?


Check my availability for your wedding date by filling out the contact form at this link or calling (203) 481-8773.  


During our meeting we discuss what visions you may hold for your wedding ceremony OR you may have no idea and look to me for guidance and suggestions.  If you decide you’d like me to officiate your wedding ceremony, we would either schedule a future date to meet OR you would stay that day to begin the design of your ceremony.   

The meeting will be guided by a series of questions to determine the most appropriate  kind of service  (interfaith, traditional or non-traditional,  spiritual or civil); possible  readings and  readers from your family,  the length of  the ceremony,  the details of the wedding day – time of ceremony, location,  bridal party, the processional, music and more.  I offer a "Short and Sweet Package"  and an  "All Inclusive Package".  If you choose the "All Inclusive Package",  I learn when you met and became engaged in order  to weave your love story into the ceremony.  After our meeting, I write the first draft of your ceremony that reflects all we discussed at our meeting and send it for your review.  If you have any edits or further suggestions you would like me to make, I will write and rewrite as necessary until it fully meets with your approval and satisfaction.  Together, we will create a beautiful presentation of your love and commitment to each other.   

I know that wedding planning can be quite stressful and it is my goal to do everything possible to make it easy for you. I will be fully available for any questions and/or consultations that will assist me in bringing your visions to life. There is only one love story like yours. It deserves to be heard.

“Dear Reverend O'Connor, Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did with our ceremony. It was the best day of our lives and you were a huge part of it. Your care and support, not just that day with officiating, but in taking the time to meet with us before drafting the ceremony were much appreciated. The ceremony was truly beautiful – it was so touching to have our personal story incorporated, as well as the essence of our union so eloquently captured. It was much more special than the standard ceremony we would have received via a church wedding. Thanks again for everything."  Lisa and Chris 


"Dear Reverend O'Connor,  Thank you very much for creating a beautiful and special wedding ceremony. So many of our guests have commented on how wonderful it was and indeed it had all the personal touches and attention to detail we desired. Thank you also for suggesting the unity candle ceremony. It was a perfect and memorable day and we will be ever grateful to you."   - Jennifer and David
