We work with a few select local ordained ministers who provide heartfelt wedding ceremonies and truly care about the couples they marry. You can request a Christian based, traditional ceremony or a non-religous, civil ceremony. Most special requests are handled by our office, but you're welcome to reach out to your scheduled minister if you'd like to. The church ordained ministers we work with are generally assistant pastors, youth pastors or retired from pastoring their own church. Your minister will return your completed marriage license to the clerks office at the courthouse. We can provide a pastor for same sex weddings. Please contact our office if you have any questions about who we can have officiate your wedding ceremony. If we don't have a staff minister who can accommodate your request, we'll be happy to recommend someone who can.

Jim made us feel as if we had known him for some time. The little heart to heart words spoken during the ceremony added that special touch we won’t forget.

Thank you so much for sharing our special day with us! Working with you was the easiest thing about the entire wedding! We loved our officiant and the message he read to us. It was so properly fitting for us, as if he knew us personally. Thank you again for all of your services!

It was our privilege to have Dennis perform our ceremony and he made us feel right at ease and our ceremony was a blessing. Exactly what we wanted!
