Officiants

From Humanists, to Celebrants, to interfaith ministers, to DJs who are also wedding ministers, to rock 'n' roll reverends who will read your vows from The Princess Bride... these are our favorite offbeat wedding officiants.

Magical Weddings by Carly

Gender non-conforming, intersectional feminist, geek, nerd, Hufflepuff, dog parent seeks same (or completely different!) people in need of a wedding officiant. Secular, spiritual, or religious; all genders, sexualities, and relationship styles (including ethical non-monogamy) welcomed and celebrated! I’m an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church, have a Masters degree from Duke Divinity School, and am certified through the Equality Institute’s LGBT+ Wedding Course.

Reverend Katherine

I started doing weddings because my BFF from our childhood Girl Scout troop asked me to. I kept doing weddings because I LOVE weddings. And I'm great at them. I want every wedding I go to to be an amazing, hilarious, sacred, musical, gorgeous, fun, awe-inspiring testimony to love. I started kept doing weddings so that more would be that way.

Michele Zipp, Ritualist

I am a non-denominational Ordained Minister, Reiki Master, writer, and love storyteller. In 2011, my best friends asked me to officiate their wedding and that began my journey into this ritual. More friends asked. Friends of friends asked. And then word spread and I met with couples who became new friends. I love the ritual of weddings and the magic of ceremony.

Arwen Freer, Minister

I believe that love is love, and, for me, there is no higher calling than joining together people who are committed to loving each other; and I believe everyone should be able to have a ceremony that reflects their own style and interests. Every relationship is unique, so I customize every ceremony script to match the individuals' understanding of love and commitment, within their chosen beliefs.

The Reverend D

I know exactly what it's like to wander from the beaten wedding aisle and I love helping other brides create their own unique traditions. I go out of my way to make the process fun and stress-free, and I am open to any ideas you're willing to throw at me. Because at the end of the day, *you* are what will make your wedding unique. So essentially, my job is to help you express you.

Once Upon A Vow

Saying "I Do" is the very start of your married adventure, where you promise to face the world together through all of life’s little plot twists. You want this moment to be a meaningful reflection of your story and your life together, one you’ll fondly look back on well after your silver anniversary – AND the very first moment you’ll travel back in time to (as soon as science catches up).
