"Jodi!  You are so amazing and I'm so glad we chose you to be our wedding officiant!  You and Jim were such a delightful addition to our day!  Thank you again to you both!"  Erikk F.


Jodi and Jim are  licensed, ordained, non-denominational Ministers who perform customized ceremonies for your wedding.  They have also been very happily married for almost 26 years.

"All of our life lessons and dreams have led us to this profession – and we hope that if you choose us, we can be a part of your most memorable day.
We have friends and acquaintances from all walks of life, different beliefs, thoughts, religions, and ideas.  That has led us to our journey to help couples unite in whatever ceremony they can dream of. 
We are InterFaith Ministers.  We, as people, all have something in common: the desire to make a contribution to this world, to serve humankind, to promote understanding and respect between all people, to find the Oneness that links all of us.  We call this common interest in what unites us, “Interfaith.”


Weddings are completely personal and can be tailored to fit  your  needs, cultural or spiritual, here are a few suggestions and explanations.  (Choose from our menu of ceremonies.  We have many more in our archive to choose from!   Click on blue buttons and scroll down for information!):

If you can dream it, we can help make it a reality on your special day.  We truly mean:  Your Day; Your Way!
