About

I am currently not booking any wedding ceremonies.

I will be happy to sign your marriage license if you are in, or can come to, the Pocatello area but I am not performing ceremonies.

If you are looking for a secular or non-religious alternative to a traditional wedding ceremony, I can help!

I perform personalized, non-religious wedding ceremonies in eastern Idaho. It's your day, so celebrate it your way! I can help you put together a ceremony that is a perfect reflection of you and your love for each other.

As a humanist celebrant endorsed by the humanist society's celebrant endorsement committee, I am recognized by the state of Idaho as an authorized clergy member when it comes to solemnizing marriages. I am not affiliated with a church or religious organization. I primarily serve the eastern Idaho area but can travel to other locations if needed.

Very pleased with Joel Gardner and would recommend him!

Joel was excellent!
He walked us through it and let us review and suggest how the ceremony would go.
I felt comfortable and excited with the plans he wrote.
He was willing to accommodate and drive where we needed and he did!
He was excellent and professional and I would highly recommend him.
