Dr. John R. Goss, III
Officiant and Celebrant
I am an ordained (nondenominational/interfaith) minister, qualified to perform weddings in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia. My study has prepared me to offer guidance in services of commitment, of inclusion and of recognition.
I offer personalized ceremonies, created in partnership with you, designed to reflect your individual personalities and commitment. Regardless of the form you choose for your ceremony, my services include
Consultation with unlimited phone, email, and in-person consultations
Professionally officiating your fully customized ceremony
Travel to the ceremony venue and arriving an hour prior to ceremony start time
Collaboration with your wedding coordinator, photographer/videographer, and other participants to ensure a ceremony that flows well and you get the shots you want
Signing and mailing your marriage license--and ensuring we comply with marriage law.
I have served as a counselor, professor and elected public official. In each of these my focus has been on serving others to better live full and engaging lives--as each has chosen to live that life. Perhaps I can be of assistance to you.
