WHAT IS A
I am non-denominational wedding minister, ordained by American Marriage Ministries, an IRS 501c3 Certified Church that empowers individuals to perform marriages. I chose this organization because I deeply respect and agree with it's three major tenents:
All people, regardless of race, gender, or
sexual orientation, have the right to marry.
It is the right of every couple to choose
who will solemnize their marriage.
All people have the right to solemnize marriage.
Personally, I was raised Roman Catholic but consider myself more of a spiritual person as an adult. In creating ceremonies, we'll include whatever level of spirituality suits you best.

WHY WE RECORD YOUR STORY
Kathy Vass, ordained minister with
American Marriage Ministries
We believe in the importance of a good story to celebrate life's biggest occasions. But we also believe in being present in the moment. Your love story interview is recorded to allow us to be really focused on you and not distracted by a lot of hasty note-taking. Later, it serves as a helpful tool to craft the perfect ceremony script.
The first year of marriage can fly by so I feel this is a good time for couples to take a moment and look back on the words they shared with me before they got married. Consider it an anniversary gift you're giving to your future selves!
TAKING YOUR STORY TO THE NEXT LEVEL
While every ceremony comes with a basic recorded interview, you also have the option to create a custom Engagement Film allowing us to capture a richer story. This fully edited movie, incorporating music, and some of your own pictures and video is a great way to entertain your guests at a rehearsal dinner or during your reception.
