Wedding Officiant for SouthwestMichigan


The best weddings are a composition of meaningful rituals that highten a special event and transform it into the commencement of a united life journey. I compose a customized ceremony for each couple based on our collaboration. We choose readings that speak to the couple and include traditions that bring joy and significance to the individuals and their families.  Officiating a ceremony combines my passions of directing an unforgettable experience with an intentional  and holistic approach to life's transtions.

“Choosing Emily to officiate our marriage was the first wedding decision we made after getting engaged, and our best decision. She put so much effort into making our ceremony the most memorable part of our wedding, and her impeccable organization took so much stress out of the planning process. With a variety of ceremony formats, readings, and vows to choose from, we were able to personalize the service without extensive research and effort.

My husband, Matias, and I had always wanted a more intimate ceremony with an officiant who knows us personally. Emily has been a friend of my family for ages- she was my first babysitter, she attended my parent’s wedding, and I attended hers. To be quite honest, I’ve been to very few weddings where the ceremony is the highlight (I’m usually thinking about getting to the dance floor...) but our guests couldn’t stop raving. Months afterwards, I still hear from friends and family how special and moving our ceremony was. She even incorporated a surprise – after taking our vows, she had family and friends from all walks of life stand up and read us blessings. It felt like the scene from Love Actually where the guests start playing instruments in the pews, except our surprise was even better. We can’t thank you enough, Emily, for making our wedding the celebration we have always dreamed of!” Olivia& Matias
