Mindful Ministry is a wedding officiant company located out of Frederick, Maryland. Officiant Reverend William Miles takes a personal interest in each couple that comes to him. He believes that intimate ceremonies that resemble the love between two people can be such a magical moment for everyone involved and would love to work with you to create one.
Mindful Ministry works with couples by meeting a couple times prior to the ceremony to not only prepare for the ceremony but for married life as a whole. Reverend William Miles uses this time to understand the essence of your relationship and from there he will work with you to customize your ceremony with structure, readings, and rituals. He has extensive experience working with couples from a Christian background, but more recently he has been part of an influx of inter-denominational ceremonies. Ceremony types include civil union, vow renewal, and non-religious.

Mindful Ministries was such a meaningful and memorable experience for my husband and I. We really learned such much about ourselves and each other. I would recommend and urge every engaged couple to use Rev.Mies as he just makes the process of engagement through marriage so special.
You will get a unique experience here. You learn how to stop, pause and breathe. You are reminded to appreciate who you are, how you add to your partner's life and how you work together as a couple. You honestly get even new ways to appreciate your partner for just who they are, no matter how long you've been together. It is just a totally simple yet imperative view of you, your fiance and life in general.

Amazing experience, all around!
My husband and I were nervous about finding an officiant for our wedding--coming from different religious backgrounds and with our own unique senses of spirituality, we were worried that we would not find someone to conduct a ceremony that truly reflected our relationship and respected our backgrounds. However, our fears instantly subsided upon meeting Bill and Joanne. They approached the creation of our wedding ceremony with such warmth, openness and kindness, and truly guided us toward making thoughtful decisions that reflected our unique love and relationship. Bill officiated our wedding ceremony with grace, humor, and respect, and I really cannot imagine that anyone else could have done a better job. After the wedding, some guests told my husband and I that it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they have ever attended. Maybe we're a little biased, but we agree :) Thank you Bill and Joanne for making our wedding ceremony so personal, heartfelt and memorable!

Dynamic Duo - Instant Acceptance
William and his wife JoAnne were so accommodating to our crazy schedules as well as truly interested in getting to know us to make our wedding ceremony truly unique! We could not have asked for a better or more knowledgeable officiant, they even put our ceremony and vowels into a hard cover book along with our certificate as a gift at our reception. We are so grateful that we found them and that they work so well together that they are interchangeable incase one or the other could not be there which make any couple feel a bit safer when there is already a backup plan in place. They are the best and we truly consider them our friends that we plan on meeting up with around our anniversary times to catch up.
