Choosing the Right Officiant to Create and Perform Your Custom Couple-Centered Wedding Ceremony Will Save Your Sanity and Your Wallet!

(Grand Rapids, Michigan - January 2020) - Whether you want a simple and quick elopement ceremony, or desire a custom written ceremony to reflect your unique relationship, I can write and perform your personalized wedding ceremony that you and your guests will talk about glowingly for a lifetime. offers custom wedding vows to West Michigan couples looking to create the perfect wedding.Your perfect ceremony can be affordable and memorable. No hidden fees, unlimited contact and customizing of your ceremony is available. Let me guide you through the design process and reduce stress when choosing what elements you wish to include in your ceremony.

While some officiants require you to book with them before meeting you personally, I think your officiant choice is an important decision not to be taken lightly. You need to interview your potential officiant and make sure that they can provide the type of ceremony you want and will work with you in the manner you desire.

I am very open and non-judgmental to whatever you have in mind for a ceremony, whether it be non-denominational, religious, non-religious, nature-based, themed or non-traditional. I can acquaint you with the elements and possible ceremonies in traditional and contemporary weddings, as well as different ceremonies from various faiths and cultures, if you are so inclined.

Based in the Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan area, I serve all of West Michigan including Grand Rapids, Muskegon, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Battle Creek, South Haven, Grand Haven, Allendale, Holland, Zeeland, Hudsonville, Lowell, Hastings, Wayland, Rockford, Cedar Springs and all other cities and towns in the surrounding counties. also offers short-notice elopement ceremonies in our convenient little chapel. If you need a brief elopement ceremony with short notice, you can be married in my Grand Rapids area wedding chapel, conveniently located near Breton and 28th St, or I can come to you. I will gladly travel within an hour of Grand Rapids, or further for larger wedding ceremonies with a modest travel fee.

Awesome Ceremony

Misty was a very funny down to earth person who makes everyone feel like family. I loved how professional she was. The ceremony was short, but sweet. My husband and I absolutely loved the ceremony and will recommend Misty in the future.

Personal and stress free!

Misty gave us the option of following a pre-written ceremony or a custom one. She had several optional add-on segments:

Love Letters - the couple put love letters they have written to each other into a box that also has a container of their favorite beverage. It is stored to later save a grudge-full moment.

Glass Vessel - the couple (and family if desired) fill a glass vessel with their own color of sand. White sand can be included if desired.

Readings and other sections of the ceremony were personal and interchangeable.

We had a custom ceremony and I was pleased with how Misty worded our union based on our consultation conversation. She added several fitting literary embellishments. At first Dylan did not like her perspective but his opinion has changed to, "It was a good day". How did the same situation become something different based on who was doing the looking? How do you determine a working perspective? Does the output of good feelings indicate the effectiveness of a specific perspective? Others may say having stuff is the indicator.

Mindy included a nice selection of photos with her service. Witnesses are also available.
