He’s the voice of WOMR’s Leggs Up and Dancing, the minister who has officiated at over 700 weddings, and a good part of the reason that our beaches have mobility mats today. Vernon Porter (also known as the lovely Lady Di) seems to have limitless energy for the things he’s passionate about: people, music, weddings, people, coaching, Masons…did I mention people? “I always want to help people,” Porter explains. “Anytime, anyone who needs me, I’m there.” His past work on the disability commission helped enable all visitors to enjoy Provincetown, and his former position as secretary to the Board of Selectmen as well as his current work as a life coach keep him engaged with people: “I enjoy dealing with the general public and helping with their concerns.”
He loves performing weddings, “especially that moment when they realize that they’re really married. That’s my favorite.” The people he marries remember him fondly, share family photos, return to town for dinners, send him Christmas cards.
