Deacon J (Jeff) is a fully accredited minister of the Universal Life Church Monastery in good standing and has been a minister without a declared religion since March 17th, 2008.  Being approved by Washoe County as a wedding officiant and minister, weddings must be performed in Washoe County, Nevada. The Deacon does not judge or discriminate with regard to your wishes and ideas. Each event is handled with discretion and privacy.

Traditional and religious ceremonies are not part of our services. 

There are many wonderful chapels in the Reno/Tahoe area that are much better suited for more traditional and complicated ceremonies. 

Comments...

The Deacon made us comfortable, listened to our unique requests and made a few real good suggestions about the procedures that added to what we imagined.  One quick walk through and we were good to go.  We were impressed by his open mindedness and respect for our wishes.  A great start to our marriage.

We were looking for a someone on short notice in our hotel room at the Eldorado after spending the night with friends who have been nagging us to get married already.  We called the Deacon and he showed up within the hour.  It was fun, quick and memorable.
