About

On WeddingWire since 2022

Shelmire Ministries is a wedding officiating service based out of Kansas City, Kansas. This company can perform vow renewals and civil ceremonies alongside religious and non-religious services. We are willing to work with all people and help them make their dream come true. To-be-weds are invited to write their own vows, to make the ceremony extra meaningful.

Services Offered

Shelmire Ministries offer premarital counseling to help each couple prepare for this new stage in their lives together. We utilize an electronic assessment taken by both individuals getting married. We also offer it to those who have also been married. After the assessment is returned we will have at least 4 (1) hour sessions to discuss the results. This allows the couples to have those special conversations which can be facilitated by a third person and give them the freedom to discuss how they truly feel unhibited.

Photography is also offered. Prior to wedding, during the wedding and during the reception. Packages are available for set shots, as well as individual pricing per picture. This will be determined by the couple and photographer.

Excellent service

We decided to have a private ceremony at home. I contacted Shelmire Ministry to perform the ceremony. She responded quickly and was flexible about when and where we wanted the ceremony. She provided our wedding vowels and and advice when asked. We literally only had to show up. Making our wedding day memorable and care free.

Hi I'm Rev. Cheryl Shelmire

I began this ministry in 2016 when I found many couples were not churched and yet they had the desire to be married by clergy.

I felt it my calling to help and meet couples where they were. My goal is to help you have the most memorable day of your life with as little stress as possible.

We have performed as of 2022 over 160 weddings and counting.

Where ever the couple wants their wedding, we are willing to travel. I do not have a permanent location so "Have wheels will travel", My preferred areas are within the Kansas City Metropolitan area both Kansas and Missouri up to 100 mile radius, but let's talk if you are a little bit outside that range.

Look forward to working with you.

My wife and I have been working together in the ministry since 2016. I have photographed over 150 weddings along side my wife.

I am currently branching out to assist additional families in capturing their special day and other occasions.

I look forward to working with you real soon.
