Introduction: Hello, my name is Meredith! I am a caring, creative, flexible officiant/minister. I would love to work with you in designing a ceremony to reflect the love that the two of you share. You want a more in-depth ceremony for a larger wedding? Great! I'll work with you to create a beautiful ceremony . Or, if you are wanting a quick, no-fuss "courthouse" style wedding-no problem! I can do that as well. I believe that your wedding should reflect who you are, and what your preferences are, My fee includes performing the ceremony, consultation/rehearsal (if needed), and I will provide you with a a digital copy or hard copy of your ceremony script. I do offer discounts for active Military, Fire, EMT, or Law Enforcement, as well as weddings performed in locations close to me. Quick, no-fuss weddings may also be discounted (depending on location).

Wedding Officiant

Meredith was great and exactly what we hoped for! We planned a last-minute wedding because my now husband is military and we could no longer wait to have our ceremony for after covid as he is getting deployed. I reached out to her on Thursday and she worked us in for that Sunday night. She was very professional, kind, responsive, and knowledge. She gave us plenty of options to make the ceremony what we wanted it to be and even printed out our vows as a keep sake. I am over the moon with the way our wedding went and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Hannah, thank you so much for your kind words! It was so much fun to be a part of you and Christopher's wedding ceremony. I am honored. I will pray for Christopher's safe deployment and return- a big thank you for his service to our country!

Meredith did a great job on our ceremony. She asked what we wanted in it and emailed the details so we were all on the same page. She has a warm personality and I highly recommend her!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing starts at $125. However, if the wedding you choose is at my house or a close location, or if it is a quick wedding with no rehearsal I am happy to give a discount that can bring the price down to about $100 (depending on the ceremony that you want and location ). First responders, military, and police are also eligible for discounts.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After our initial contact on the phone, I will send you my contract. If you decide to book your wedding with me, you will send the contract back with a $25 down payment (included in the price quoted).This will lock in the date. If you choose to have a consultation,we will set it up. If you are local,it will be in person or if you are out of area, on the phone. At the consultation, we will work together to customize your wedding. You can choose from samples that I provide, or I will be happy to use vows that you write. I want your day to be a reflection of the two of you, whether that be serious, romantic, quirky, or just fun!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a trained educator, I have worked with people for over 20 years. I have helped people in the best times of their lives, as well as very trying times. I also have a background (and degree) as a professional singer, and have performed in weddings as small as an intimate back yard garden ceremony to a huge, $100,000 wedding at a large cathedral. Currently, I am ordained to perform weddings in Kansas and Missouri. I trained with one of the top officiants in the area for several months to learn the best practices for a professional officiant.
