    Perfect words, perfect ceremony!

    I would 100% recommend working with Stacey! In addition to making our ceremony the best part of our wedding day, she was organized, flexible, and knowledgeable about the wedding license process. Furthermore, Stacey made the rehearsal a breeze. She was on time, easy going with a large crowd, and was comfortable enough to take charge, and get everyone on the same page. No matter what type of style you're looking for, Stacey works with you to find the perfect words to make it your perfect ceremony.

Stacey Swickerath

Owner

I've married over 300 couples since the first in 2014, and truly no two weddings are the same.

My focus has always been helping atheist/agnostic and LGBTQ couples because it's part of who I am. Most importantly, however, I started doing this to help people make their wedding a reflection of themselves, doing what they want, saying words that are meaningful to them, tradition be darned. I do like to challenge social norms, even if only in subtle ways.

In my spare time I do a lot of gardening, growing herbs and veggies in my front yard, hanging out with my dog, philosophising about life and the universe, outdoorsy stuff, and just a variety of random projects. Laughter and positive thinking play a big role in my life!

    We had the pleasure of working with Stacey recently and were impressed with the way she spoke about the couple on a personal level. It was clear that she had taken the time to get to know them and created a wedding ceremony that fit their needs and interests. It made it meaningful for the couple and their guests. She was clearly very experienced and a delight to work with throughout the event.
