About Everafter Weddings


Romantic, creative weddings anywhere, at any time, by appointment
May I help you create a ceremony of celebration for your wedding?


Weddings Just About Everywhere

Once again we can offer weddings at a reduced rate of $200 for those who want a quiet, intimate ceremony in our home at 4947 Ringer Road, St. Louis, MO 63129. You can have up to 10 people with you (limited parking) In addition to completing all the legal requirements, I give you a bound copy of your wedding. With 24 hours notice in advance, I will create a wreath of fresh roses and herbs for you to keep.

Wonderful Weddings Anywhere And Anytime

I offer weddings anywhere at a standard rate of $350 with exception of winery weddings which are $400. A deposit of $50 is required to secure a date and time. The balance is due on the day of your rehearsal. If your wedding is over 40 miles away from St. Louis, I will charge a small travel fee.

I welcome your ideas for your wedding. It is VERY important to me that we meet before your wedding. You will feel more comfortable at your wedding if we have met before. If you live out of the St. Louis area we'll do conference calls. If you want me to travel we'll have to talk about arrangements. I have married couples in Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Arizona, Virginia and in Italy.


In the 39 years my husband, Bob LaRouche, retired St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer/editor/writer, and I have been together, I've experienced the happiness that true love and devotion in marriage can bring. I want others to have that too--all others, so I DO most happily perform same sex ceremonies when invited to do so.

Ours is a second marriage for each of us. Life doesn't always go the way we planned when we were twenty-two. We owe it to ourselves to try again with courage and honor.

Since May 1993 when I married my son, Brandon, to his wife, Paula, I've learned a lot about weddings.

I've learned You want your wedding to be very personal, unique to the two of you, not a canned ritual. You want your children, if you have them, yo be included in the celebration in an appropriate way.

I wrote a ceremony in which the newly married parents make promises to love, respect, teach and protect their children equally. The children, in turn, promise to respect the decisions parents make together; to respect each other and to honor the home that they share. Mutual respect creates trust; rooted in trust and respect, love grows.

In all likelihood, it could be said that, in your hearts, you are already as married as any two people could be. You more than likely already make your home together.

It is my calling to provide wedding ceremonies for any who ask me. I like your ceremony to be unique to your situation. In my life, I try to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. You may have other beliefs. I honor those. I create ceremonies blending the beliefs of many varied religions, nationalities. customs and traditions. I offer traditional wedding ceremonies that may include such features as sharing a cup of wine symbolizing sharing all things in life; the use of a Nuremburg Wedding Cup so that two may drink from the cup at the same time; a sand ceremony for a couple but even better for those with children; ancient hand fastings, jumping of the broom and my own special binding of the couple with a wreath of fresh roses and herbs. Most brides keep this. It dries very nicely.


My life experience includes eleven years spent as Special Events Coordinator for Famous-Barr Co,(now Macy's) planning major events, celebrity appearances and extravaganzas in the golden years of retail promotions. I have been a publishing writer since 1971, a newspaper editor and I spent two years handling publicity for the State of Missouri Division of Tourism. Nothing much intimidates me and I am pretty unflappable. I've never lost a bride or groom yet.

Now you know all there is to know about me except that I am a right chubby old elf, wear a size 4 shoe. My blood type is O . I'm pretty positive about everything.

    After Sandy performed our ceremony, we kept getting pulled aside by guests to tell us how great she was! She's the perfect blend of humorous and serious! The flower crown is a great touch. And worth every bit of $350, by far NOT the most expensive officiant you'll Google. If you want your guests to be entertained instead of bored out of their minds at "just another wedding", get Sandy. You won't regret it!

    Sandy will tailor the ceremony to your specific values, morals, and personalities. Many of our guests said it was the best ceremony they've ever attended. She spoke in words that we understood and felt comfortable making our vows to. She made it touching, funny, and so heartfelt. All of us (including the groom and myself) were laughing and crying. I'm so grateful we chose someone who spoke of our relationship on such a personal level. Sandy is a gem- you will not find a better person to be your officiant!

    Everything about Sandy and what she does is amazing. I saw her marry one of our family friends and was in love with the ceremony and at the time I told my parents no matter who I end up marrying, she will be the one to do it for us! She is the funniest, most kind and caring lady. Everything about our ceremony was amazing and received so many compliments on her! I could listen to her for hours, she has her way of talking and honestly I could never get bored. Thank you so much for everything Sandy, Eric and I only wish to have what you and Bob have! I will miss our random email exchanges! Love you!!!

    I have been referring people to Sandy since the day I met her. My husband and I LOVED her the moment we were introduced, and to this day, almost 7 years later, people still rave about her amazing ceremony for our wedding. She's original, she's hilariously funny, she's brilliant! And above all: she REALLY cares about her couples, and her husband is just as invested in your wedding as she is. Love her!

    Sandy provides a heartfelt very meaningful customized wedding ceremony for you! She speaks with authority about love, commitment, and sharing your lives together. With her life's experiences of being a corporate planner, she knows what needs to get done , but delivers it with deep conviction and has everyone thinking and remembering the day that they said "I do". We love having her officiating at both of our venues. She makes what this day is about "The Wedding" the focal point!
