Meet Our Chaplains
Our Chaplains Mark Aitchison, Charles Sathmary and Richard Tamas together have 60 years of experience providing wonderful and memorable wedding ceremonies. From civil to religious and non-religious, to contemporary and even themed ceremonies, their attention to detail and ability to customize a special wedding ceremony is what sets them apart from other wedding officiants. They understand that everyone is unique, and they will work to create an original service that reflects who you are as a couple. They are dedicated to making your special day the best it can be, and they look forward to meeting you to discuss all the wonderful possibilities in helping you create a memory that will last a lifetime.
