Interfaith Marriages is a wedding officiant service based in Washington, DC. Dr. Mike Ghouse, the company's owner, is a member of the American Marriage Ministries specializing in marrying couples of different religions. Mike believes in curating a meaningful experience for all couples committed to one another.
He adopts an open approach to creating ceremonies by blending each partner's traditions, whether Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Bahai or non-religious.
The services also include couples counseling to resolve any conflicts or disagreements, current or potential future disputes, wedding arrangements, and planning.
Dr. Mike Mohamed Ghouse is licensed in all 50 states of the United States and will travel to any destination. He has officiated over 200 weddings since 2009. The essential service is to officiate marriages for couples of different faiths and the same religion in the case of Muslims, Hindus, and Christians.
Interfaith Marriages is dedicated to curating memorable nuptials that celebrate the love shared between two partners. Mike's process begins with a consultation where he can learn about the couple and their story, religious backgrounds, and vision for their ceremony. He is happy to incorporate special readings, blessings, or traditions into the nuptials or create something unique. Before the wedding day, the future spouses can finalize any details they want to include in their service.
Marriage is the most important milestone of your love relationship; indeed, it expresses a commitment to your connection. You are appreciated and applauded when you take the bold step to become one regardless of your origins, faiths, races, cultures, and ethnicities. You set a new standard for living in harmony despite your inherent differences. You are practicing genuine pluralism, i.e., respecting the otherness of the other and accepting the given (God/Nature) uniqueness.
Marriage is a union of two individuals for happiness and harmonious living.
Every human being has a built-in GPS that brings two individuals together, and from a religious perspective, it is the creator who puts love between two individuals.
I am blessed to have officiated secular and religious ceremonies incorporating the couple's traditions with their respective input and final approval. Whether it is Jewish-Christian, Hindu-Christian, Bahai-Jewish, Hindu-Jewish, Atheist-Jain, or other combinations, the bride and groom and their families feel elated and enjoy the sense of marriage in full.
We can customize the wedding with the bride and groom's input, including their family traditions.
We are all cheerleaders for you.
