Complete Wedding run through
Finding the right officiant is important. The ceremony is the most important feature of your wedding day, let us create that vision for you.
Scott has been a professional broadcaster, writer and public speaker for over 35 years. Working with his niece for her ceremony helped him to see that he could use his broadcasting background to benefit other young couples. He offers a professional ceremony without the constraints other options might have. He is ordained by the Universal Life Church which is recognized in every county in Michigan. He can perform non-denominational or civil ceremony’s.
Kim has been running events for a long-time, when she had the ah-ha moment that the only thing that would ruin a wedding day was for the Officiant to be a no-show. In the post-pandemic environment this not being able to show up is an even greater possibility. Getting her credentials to officiate was just meant as a back up. With the post-pandemic environment the need for officiants is a real need. She is now actively officiating weddings. She and Scott work collectively to handle the wedding ceremony calendar. Kim handles all of the business paper work and Scott is our writer for the ceremonies.
I Do! (no ceremony)
You don’t need to say yes to the dress, you just want to get married and get on with your lives together. This is a wonderful alternative to going to the courthouse and waiting all day to get married. Works well for couples who want to be legal and/or may also be planning a larger event at another date/time. You apply for the license and bring to me the day-of. I will legalize and then file as I am legally required to do. We provide you a standard ceremony that consists of delivery of the vows, asking all the necessary questions, signing of the license and taking or sending it back to the county clerk so you can enjoy your day and the rest of your life together. Includes a 30-minute consultation, but no rehearsal. Ceremony length averages 10 minutes.
