Perform Wedding Ceremony


WEDDING CEREMONY


  • Thinking of getting married?
  • Looking for a non-religious ceremony?
  • Wanting to do something non-traditional?
  • Unsure of how to have the perfect wedding ceremony?


Pursuant to Florida Statute section 117.045, a notary public may perform a legally binding and valid wedding ceremony.


As an attorney I notarize documents all the time. I have a valid notary commission and I am familiar with the requirements imposed on a notary public in the State of Florida.


I enjoy the opportunity to perform wedding ceremonies and the best part is they can be customized to the bride and groom's own wishes. I can provide a standard set of vows or work with the bride and groom to develop a customized and unique set of vows that are both personal and memorable to the bride and groom to be.


I provide this service anywhere within Volusia County, Florida. My law office is located in the heart of New Smyrna Beach, south of the world famous Daytona Beach.


I charge the maximum permitted under Florida law along with a fixed travel fee, regardless of where in Volusia County the wedding is to be performed.
