About Arizona Ministers - Statewide Services

Arizona's favorite weddings since 1977.

"Demonstrating the difference between acceptable and exceptional wedding services!"

As duly ordained ministers, we have put our hearts into making weddings relevant, meaningful and inspiring. We depend upon our communication skills of leading and listening to find out what combination of words will captivate you and your guests.

A great wedding requires attention to detail, working well with others and leadership. Hoteliers, wedding planners, musicians, DJs and many others tell us that we are the leaders when it comes to performing a wedding celebration in Arizona. 

Having performed more than 11,000 weddings since 1977, the demand for ours services continues today. Because we cannot be everywhere all the time, we created Arizona Ministers.

Arizona Ministers are screened, trained and verified clergy that fully meet the requirements of the Arizona Revised Statutes regarding performing wedding ceremonies. We are not ordained on the interntet, and neither are judges, which is why we can lawfully solemnize your marriage and pronounce you "husband and wife" at the location of your choice.

We pride ourselves in being creative, passionate, and fair. As ministers, we meet you and your fiance where you are spiritually. You can have a somewhat traditional ceremony of faith, a romantic civil ceremony, or a combination of both. Bring your ideas or just follow our lead. We're experienced and want this as perfect as you do!

A few wedding planners and venues books us exclusively for their clients (the best references available). Those who plan ahead can usually retain our services. Otherwise, we gladly introduce you to one of our great associates.

Call us to get acquainted and to check availability for your wedding date, time and location. Meet us in person, over the phone or via SKYPE. Let us demonstrate the difference we can make in your wedding.

In Your Service,

Phillip & Gwen Waring, Founders

Excellent and simple... Gwen and Phil were so easy to work with, very helpful even with items other than the ceremony (license, location DJ I, etc.), and very genuine in carrying out a ceremony that meant a lot to us. They were kind, efficient, and personable. I’d recommend them to anyone.

When we first started looking for an officiant we were nervous about not finding the right person. We wanted someone that would understand us and our family and the message we wanted to share with everyone. Gwen Waring eased our nerves and the unknown of what to expect in your officiant. She was amazing! She is definitely a professional and you can tell the experience she has. She wasn’t just mediocre she understood both of us, spoke with so much compassion and never once had to look at any words on a sheet of paper. She was flawless with everything! After our ceremony we actually had quite a few people approach us and tell us that Gwen married them as well and how amazing she is. I would highly recommend going with Gwen Waring!

Professional Network & Endorsements

Over the past 20 years we've had the pleasure of seeing Philip Waring at several events. The Warings are very attentive and kind. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

I love working with Phil and always love seeing the passion and love he has for what he does. He is such a kind hearted person and knows how his work can really affect a wedding ceremony. He is the only officiant I will ever refer.

Phil and Gwen are consummate professionals who perform flawless ceremonies, but it goes way beyond that. Arizona Ministries embraces the bond of marriage and gives it the respect and attention to detail and treats each ceremony like it was family.

Their ceremonies are beautiful and the ministers are wonderful! A great vendor to pick!

Phil and Gwen are fantastic! With all their years of performing weddings, they understand the many ins and outs of creating of an unforgettable wedding ceremony. Always wanting the best for everyone involved, you be thrilled that you selected them as your wedding ministers!
