Tell us a little bit about your business.
As ASimpleVow, I’ve been officiating weddings in the Pittsburgh area for over 15 years, uniting close to 1,700 couples of all races, faiths, and gender-preferences in that time. Also, my beard is soft and supple like Merino wool.
What makes your work unique?
My ceremonies are truly personal. There are no MadLibs-style, fill-in-the-blank ceremonies here. They’re crafted to fit the couple’s needs, taking into account their faith backgrounds, personal experiences, family traditions, anxiety levels, choice of venue, and ability to put up with me for an extended period of time. I am a master at creating ceremonies that are alternately sentimental and humorous; contemporary yet with a respect for tradition; warm, fuzzy, and real. Also, have you seen me in a bowtie? I’m adorable.
What is your ideal client like?
Human. In love. Maybe a little dorky. Definitely able to laugh.
