ABOUT REV. SCOTT
The most meaningful thing I'd like you to know about me is that I love this work and I put my whole heart into it. I am a licensed wedding officiant and an ordained, nondenominational minister. I have performed hundreds of weddings over a 30-year period. I perform ceremonies that are religious, spiritual, or - as many couples want - "spiritual, but not religious." I honor people from all faiths, backgrounds, sexual orientation, and race. I hold it as a high privilege to be with two people at the moment they publicly entrust their hearts to one another, crossing a threshold of lifelong commitment. It is a moment that is never forgotten, one that touches every person who is privileged to witness it.
In addition to my wedding work, I have served as a nondenominational minister, counselor, chaplain, and seminary instructor. I serve on the board of the World Wisdoms Project, a Colorado nonprofit organization that educates and inspires multi-faith communities through learning programs and exploration of the arts. I served as a chaplain for the Hospice of St. John in Denver, as well as volunteering for a local community kitchen, assisting individuals and families with food and shelter. I worked as a community educator in the field of palliative care, working with Life Quality Institute to assist those with serious illnesses to receive physical and emotional support. I participate in a Colorado wedding association, networking with other wedding professionals. And I served for many years on the Board of the Embrace Foundation, an affordable housing program that fosters meaningful, balanced relationships in low-income communities. My bachelor's degree is in journalism/public relations and, before attending seminary and going into ministry, I worked in corporate communications, utilizing my public speaking, writing, and PR skills. I bike and play pickle ball, and I enjoy photography and hiking in our beautiful Rocky Mountains. And I always find time for moments of soul-renewing silence. In this way, I feel that I'm always prepared to be fully present with my wedding couples and to do the work I love.
My many years of experience in writing and designing church services, seminars, and wedding ceremonies have given me skills in staging events, like weddings. And my collaboration with wedding coordinators, photographers, and DJs have helped me cultivate great insights about the timing and flow of ceremonies. I’ve spoken to hundreds of audiences, have degrees in communications and theology, and am Church-ordained (rather than getting “licensed” online). Let's get acquainted! Drop me a note at email@example.com. Thank you!
