Joy-Filled Weddings offers a non-denominational minister officiating weddings of all types: religious, spiritual and secular. I work with all couples, traditional and LGBTQ+ and I encourage couples to explore their heart for the type of ceremony they desire. My goal is for you to have a fun and joyful experience.
This is a small, intimate ceremony with family and friends. You may choose a short spiritual or secular pre-written ceremony including the ring exchange. This is for couples who want a simple, heartfelt ceremony in a pleasant setting such as a public park, your home or a small private room at a local hotel or restaurant. I will be glad to offer location suggestions. You may reserve this within 30 days of the wedding with up to 10 guests.
This ceremony is for the couples who are planning a larger romantic or lighthearted ceremony which may include Symbolic Rituals (Unity sand ceremony, candle lighting ceremony, etc), a Remembrance of Loved Ones, Honoring Your Mothers, and the Ring Exchange at a local venue. This ceremony will reflect your vision of a dream wedding. This may be either secular or spiritual.
This ceremony will embrace the essence of your love for each other to be witnessed by your friends and family. After meeting with you, I craft a personalized ceremony from your responses portraying your love story at the wedding. I offer readings, vows, blessings to fit all occasions and am more than happy to help you create your own. You may incorporate Personal Traditions, Symbolic Rituals (Unity sand ceremony, candle lighting ceremony, etc), A Remembrance of Loved Ones, Honoring Your Mothers, and the Ring Exchange. This will truly be a memorable wedding. This may be either spiritual or secular. Perfect for all size ceremonies.
