  2. Is it ok for my family member/friend to read a verse or poem?

    Yes, for an additional $75, I will do the rehearsal a day or two prior to the wedding.

  4. Do you do religious weddings?

    Yes, I do religious weddings; but I also do civil ones.  I am pretty flexible on the type of ceremony the couple wants to have.
