About Authentic Ceremonies

Authentic Ceremonies is a wedding officiant service based out of Seekonk, Massachusetts. Ordained Christian minister and multi-faith chaplain Reverend Korte Yeo tailors traditional and/or unique wedding ceremonies to tell the life story of every couple. Your wedding ceremony is a lovely, unique chapter of your unique love story- let's write that together and help make your vision come true. If you don't have an exact vision yet, we will create a vision together. Our premarital counseling sessions are a huge part of what makes the Authentic Ceremonies experience one-a-kind. We want you to have the best relationship possible. The sessions also help us tell your love story.

Experience

Reverend Korte has spent over 20 years helping people develop spiritually both as individuals and as couples. He brings a personal and colorful touch to his vocation with seven years of stand-up comedy experience and decades of learning from multiple faith traditions. This experienced officiant will do their utmost to create and perform the service that is perfect for you, whether it is deeply religious or a secular ceremony.

Services Offered

Reverend Korte offers a free consultation to discuss expectations, vision and hopes for your special day. Wedding service with Authentic Ceremonies begins with pre-marital counseling to assist in this part of your love story. Rev Korte can assist in helping you to write your own vows if requested and will create a ceremony that is single-faith, multi-faith, or of no particular faith. Licensed to conduct ceremonies in the states of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Reverend Korte is ready to help you realize your dream wedding.

Pricing

Authentic Ceremonies offers an all-inclusive package for $600 which includes an initial consultation, four 1-hour pre-marital counseling sessions, creating & performing your unique ceremony and a full rehearsal. We do not normally perform ceremonies for couples we have not done pre-marital counseling with.

Why Premarital counseling? Why Authentic Ceremonies?

Weddings are expensive, often running many thousands of dollars, and we understand the desire to save money wherever possible, however, please don't streamline on premarital work. It will be the best money you spend and because of the vital role the premarital sessions play in making our ceremonies special and so very personal, we don't perform ceremonies without the premarital work.

To me, my service to you is more than putting together a nice service for one day. Oh, we'll do that, but we want it to be a once-in-a-lifetime, unique event you and your guests cherish forever, and that takes a little work, whether it is a 300 guest elaborate affair, or 10 of your closest friends. More importantly, we will discuss ways to help you become the best partner each of you can become for one another and discuss how to meet inevitable challenges. This by far the most important service we provide. I'm happy to discuss this with you and explain why after 20+ years of working with people, it is integral to a great relationship.

    Anything but ordinary

    What can I say other than we had a once in a lifetime experience. This was no cookie-cutter service, Korte's comedic chops kept things light and loose, and kept our audience laughing. His attention to our personal connection and the way he told our story of love made for an unforgettable experience

    What can I say, but your review choked me up. Your wedding was unique in so many ways- from the wonderful and varied guests, to the family, to the kids present. What struck me was how palpable the feeling of joy for you and Lea was from your friends. They really really really love you guys, and with good reason!

    Thanks again for letting me be part of your special day.

    Most memorable church service my wife and I have ever been part of

    most memborable Church service. Well planned and rehearsed wedding. family and friends could not stop saying how perfect everything went. Could not have doen it without Reverend Korte Yeo's expeirence and knowledge. We were well counceled before our wedding and we could not be thankful enough for all he did.

    Brad, thanks so much for your review. You & Stephanie are a true partnership. I was much impressed by how hard you worked in premarital counseling even though you had been together for quite some time. Your dedication to doing all you could to continue to improve your relationship was inspiring. Please call any time!
