Thank You for visiting my website, and Congratulations! You're getting married!

I know you want to make that special day perfect in every way, and I'm here to help you. I work closely with each couple to create a Wedding or Commitment Ceremony which reflects the love and joy that the two of you feel right now. I will design a customized ceremony based on the wishes and desires of each couple. Many couples want to add special readings and rituals, memorial candles, broom jumping, or pagan/Wiccan/Celtic elements, such as handfastings. I can weave these elements into a beautiful and meaningful service that you will remember always. The couple has final say on all aspects of the wedding ceremony.

I would love to hear from you, and of course, the initial consultation is free. Please contact me at the telephone numbers listed above, or email me directly. I send you both blessings for a long and joyous life together!


Reverend Debby is a full-time Non-denominational Minister, affiliated with the Baltimore Spiritual Science Center, an inter-faith school which studies all world religions, seeking similarities instead of differences. She is familiar with Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist wedding rites and rituals, and can incorporate these into the wedding ceremony. Rev. Debby is an independent minister who is authorized to perform marriages at any venue throughout Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC. She also has over 30 years of business experience, with many contacts throughout the wedding planning community. She is a member of the Ministerial Alliance, the American Association of Wedding Officiants, the Bridal Association of America, the National Association of Wedding Ministers, the National Association of Wedding Officiants, and Goddess Moon Circles (Wiccan website).



   Rev. Debby provides each couple with the following: 

  • Detailed information about obtaining the marriage license in the county you are to be married in. 
  • Calm, steady and organized guidance throughout the wedding process.
  • Readily available contact via email and phone to answer any questions or concerns that arise. 
  • Handling of paperwork on behalf of the couple, i.e. mailing the official copy of the marriage license back to the courthouse.

"My job is to make the wedding ceremony as stress-free as possible

so that couple can relax and enjoy themselves." 

A special thanks to my husband, Wayne, for his constant support and love.
