                                     Sun Rise and Sun Set

It may be especially important in planning an outdoor ceremony, when the sun rises and sets.  For information, go to

 I have performed ceremonies at sunrise so the couple could begin their new life together with a new day.  Sunset is also a great time for a ceremony.  It makes a wonderful background for photos.  It could be along the banks  of the pristine White River at a gazebo or at a private home or resort over looking beautiful Bull Shoals Lake.  I can help you find a venue that fits your style.  You decide.


I have sample ceremonies available.  Contact me and you can preview ceremonies to select what is just right for you.  Whether it be traditional ceremony, a special blessing of the wedding rings, including special scriptures, unity candle ceremony, Native American prayers, Irish blessings, double ring, etc. 

Call 870-421-4538   


I can provide traditional wedding music (instrumental) via a boom box.  You may have special cds or tapes that are special to you as a couple that we can use.  I have access to some original dulcimer music which is very fitting to the Ozarks. If you like country love songs, I can also provide that.  I once had a solo on harmonica for a wedding.  It was a relative of the bride, he was wearing a tuxedo T-shirt and played "Here Comes the Bride" on the harmonica.  It was really original and neat. 

Couples from Many States

Couples coming from many states arrive here year round to tie the knot in the beautiful Arkansas Ozark Mountains.  It is a well known destination for weddings/honeymoons.  Whether it be a first wedding or renewing your vows, Arkansas with its beautiful rolling hills, lakes and rivers is the choice location providing you with natural beauty and serenity for your nuptials. 

Couples From Many States

I have joined couples hailing from the dozen states that are highlighted in the map above. 

                                               My Record

Since my ordination, I have had the pleasure and privilege of joining several local couples in marriage on their wedding day.  Couples have been from Gamaliel, Mountain Home, Midway, Bull Shoals, Lakeview, Gassville, Whiteville, Flippin,, Mountainburg and El Dorado, Arkansas. 

I have joined couples from other states who chose to get married in the Arkansas Ozarks.  Couples have been from Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, New Mexico, Mississippi, Arizona, Nebraska, Illinois, and Florida. 

I consider it an honor to be a part of their special day.
