10 Questions with Scott Payne

1. Introduction: What's your story?

You are having a Real Wedding and we are Real Ministers!

Congratulations on your engagement!

I am honored that you are considering me to be your Wedding Minister! What a privilege it would be for me to unite the two of you as Husband & Wife! I believe your wedding needs to be all about the two of you becoming husband and wife and want you both to enjoy every minute of this amazing moment in time! Because you are considering me to be "The Knot Tyer", I want to let you know who I am and what I will do for you. I am all about weddings!

I am a Christian Minister of 36+ years and have officiated many weddings throughout the years. I have been married for 35 years to my beautiful wife, Anna. We have three boys. My goal is to be there for you in any way that meets your needs. I want to make YOUR day as special as possible!

I believe each wedding needs to be just the way the couple wants it to be. I am very open to changing up the services from traditional to contemporary ceremonies. I will help you create the ceremony of your dreams! You are welcome to choose your own vows, readings and traditions. You are free to include your family and or friends if you so desire. I love to help couples put their signature on their wedding! Your wedding will be special and meaningful!

I truly love people and will do everything I can to make you, as a couple, and everyone else comfortable and relaxed during the ceremony. I can be as serious or as light hearted as you feel the occasion calls for. I absolutely love weddings and will do all I can to create an environment of joy and love! There are not many things in this life more memorable than the day two become one!

Please, look over my website and once you have finished contact me so I can set your wedding date in my calendar.

Just so you know, I used to be a boy scout and I am a Minister so I can "tie a knot" that will stay!

Best Wishes on YOUR Special Day!

Most Sincerely,

Scott Payne
