Rev. Lon “America’s Favorite Jewish Cowboy Minister”
The cowboy wedding took place at the Inn at Palmer Divide, Palmer Lake, Colorado, about 8,000’ up in the Rockies.
As for advice to other ministers, and those considering becoming one, I would say what I share with all my potential clients about myself and my services: “I may not take myself too seriously, but I do take you – and your wedding – very seriously.” My services are all customized for the couples I work with, and the process for creating them is a truly collaborative one…involving work, the sharing of heartfelt feelings, and a good deal of humor.

The binder I use for my services is a custom-made hair-on-hide antelope made by a cousin of mine who (with his late father) ran a custom bookbinding business in Hollywood, specializing in making fancy custom leather bindings for movie directors and stars of their favorite books and scripts.
