About

On WeddingWire since 2008

Dr, Kelsey Graham Ministries is a professional wedding officiant provider that focuses on wedding planning and coordination as well as day-of services in Alabaster, Alabama.

CONGRATULATIONS newly engaged couples!!! Welcome to the world of trying to figure out all things weddings.

I have been involved in literally thousands of wedding throughout my lifetime. I never actually intended to become a WEDDING EXPERT but it happened. It happened in part because it is my nature to be as educated on any subject I am involved in as much as possible. Starting out simply as a WEDDING OFFICIANT many years ago the learning started and the more I learned the more I jumped in to assist couples in their planning and the execution of the wedding day.

Over the years I have personally retained and trained a team of top notch wedding pros. If any of us got ill, had an emergency or died you - THE COUPLE, would never be put in a place to be concerned about YOUR wedding being covered. We always attend rehearsals- even if the services we are providing are other than OFFICIANT- yes our photographer, videographer and DJ are there at rehearsal- because any on these services are vital to your wedding memories. The more we know about YOU and YOUR WEDDING the better we can serve YOU.

As OFFICIANT WEDDING PLANNER or DAY OF DIRECTOR we are not there to tell you what to do but are there to provide suggestions and execute the plan that YOU decide fits YOUR style and YOUR vision of YOUR wedding.

Over the years many of our couples have taken the time to write about the services we provide- I first suggest that you read through those. Then give me a call and see if you think I and my team are a good fit for YOUR wedding.

We meet face to face, at a time and place convenient to YOU and YOUR schedules (Weddings are not a part time gig for us- it is our main gig!) If you choose to utilize us we are there for YOU- via phone calls, texts, Zoom. We have no regular business hours because the people we serve normally do have regular work hours so we make our schedule fit YOUR schedule.

The ceremony we design and script WITH you is not some cookie-cutter wedding, We work to create a wedding as unique and interesting as YOU are.

Here is the reality- IT IS YOUR WEDDING NOT OURS!

I have actually heard wedding planners call the minister or another vendor 'MY MINISTER' or 'MY DJ'. We work for YOU the couple and we work WITH YOUR wedding planner not FOR your wedding planner. Because we never forget who our boss is.

So if you want a wedding vendor who becomes the brides BEST FRIEND (read the reviews) Dr Kelsey Graham and team are your best choice.

No matter what role we serve on your wedding day our main mission is to keep YOU, the bride, happy all the way through.

Consultations are always free. We are not pushy. We have no need or reason to be pushy.

And our fees are based on our talents and experience not on anyone's budget.

Fun, reassuring and easy to work with

Dr. Kelsey Graham and Catherine Were fantastic to work with. They were easy to get ahold of if I needed something or had a question. His style and attitude helped me feel confident that everything was going to go well. They were always on time and ready to go. I live out of state so had to do all of the planning from a distance and I appreciated having an officiant and photographer I could rely on. I would recommend them every time.

Best officiant ever

Dr. Kelsey Graham married my husband and me on 7/22/23 and it was the best experience we could have asked for. He is so kind and knows how to make a joke as well. He also made the legal marriage certificate a breeze by bringing our filled out paperwork to the wedding and notarizing it for us. Our guests all LOVED him and thought we had known him for years because he was so personable. 1000000/10 would recommend using him over any other officiant.
