As an ordained minister (not an internet minister), I joyfully offer non-denominational wedding ceremonies for those looking for a spiritual, non-religious wedding. I will create and deliver an elegant, personalized service that is customized to reflect your wishes, values, heritage and culture. I do use the term God or Higher Power, whichever you prefer, and am also happy to add Jewish, Buddhist or Muslim prayers.
The non-denominational wedding ceremony is the perfect choice for couples who do not practice a religion but are spiritually oriented and for couples of different faiths who want a ceremony that reflects universal love, joy, harmony and equality. I also joyfully perform same-sex weddings. Ceremonies can be performed at any location for all sizes of weddings.
I can offer suggestions for readings, Unity Ceremonies, music/musicians, photographers, etc. to enhance your wedding day and make it a truly unique and memorable experience. The day of the wedding I have a checklist to make sure that everything runs smoothly, and you don't have to worry about the ceremony details. This includes things like making sure the Best Man and Maid of Honor have the rings, the Unity Ceremony is set up, programs and bubbles are being distributed, coordinating with the DJ/musicians, etc. I am open to unique or out-of-the-ordinary services as well.
If you are planning a simple ceremony with just the bride and groom, the charge is $150. The charge for an intimate wedding with four to eight in the wedding party is $185 and the rehearsal is $75. The charge for more than eight in the wedding party is $200 and the rehearsal is $90.
The wedding party includes the Bride/Groom, Maid of Honor/Best Man, Bridesmaids/Groomsmen and Flower Girl/Ring Bearer. A $50 deposit is required to hold your date that is included in the overall total.
Venue distances over 40 minutes may incur a travel expense.
Non-denominational minister serving Medina, Brecksville, Akron, Cleveland and surrounding areas.
