Rev. Ruhala was absolutely wonderful to work with...we highly recommend her for a wedding ceremony!Nov 2, 2016VerifiedRev. Patti Ruhala, Officiant in Michigan's reply
Todd, Thank you for the kind words. I hope all is going well and you are very happy.
Rev Patti was wonderful! She took care of all of the small details a bride and groom don't think of. She worked closely with my photographer and dj during the ceremony to assure it was flawless. After one brief meeting we didn't see each other again until rehearsal dinner and she knew everyone's names and places perfectly. Timely and organized, Patti didn't miss a beat. Our families were a little complicated due to divorces and such, but Patti knew just how to handle it. Everyone loved her. I would recommend Rev Patti again, and again.Aug 3, 2014VerifiedRev.

Thank you. It was my pleasure to be there for you both. Wishing you many years of happiness.
Patti was amazing! She was an officiant, a mother and a wedding coordinator all in one. She made sure that our special day was nothing short of perfect and Larry and I are still happily married with a smile on our lips daily. Great Thanks and lots of love for Patti!!! She comes highly recommended from the both of us!!!Jul 13, 2015Rev. Patti Ruhala, Officiant in Michigan's reply
April, thank you. You made my job so much easier bringing to the table a clear vision of your day and your friend was awesome. A great couple, I wish you many more years!
Patti made the best day of my life go pleasantly well. Every Bride knows how stressful a wedding can get with all the details but she was always available and flexible whenever we needed her. I wouldn't recommend anyone else Patti is awesome and such a wonderful lady.Jul 20, 2015Rev. Patti Ruhala, Officiant in Michigan's reply
Kalena, thank you so much.
Rev. Patti Ruhala did an excellent job on our ceremony. She personalized our wedding to just our satisfaction. She sent rough drafts of what she wanted to say to us before the wedding so we could make changes, which I thought was a great touch. We very much enjoyed her helping our family become one on our big day. She included our children in the ceremony, which really touched my heart. Thank you Rev. Patti for all of your personal touches that made our day a memory we will never forget.Jul 13, 2015Rev. Patti Ruhala, Officiant in Michigan's reply
Jennifer, thank you. I'm so pleased and proud I was able to be a part of your family's special day!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fees are fair and reasonably priced. Once I quote a price, that price does not change. My passion to perform ceremonies and experience speak for themselves from my client reviews. Travel time to/from venue is included in the quoted price (based on distance) to allow sufficient time for the successful rehearsal and ceremony. Should an overnight accommodation be needed for long distance ceremonies, we will work together on the additional fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Reaching out by phone or email (depending on which the client prefers), spending 30 minutes on an introductory call and then if possible, an in-person meeting .
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My direct training began with the chartered church in Davison, Michigan The Missionary Church International (TMCI) that allowed me to complete my ordination in 2002 and I was registered with them through 2016. Following TMCI, I registered with Universal Life Church (ULC) until 2019. In October 2019 I registered with AMM (American Marriage Ministries) for additional training to expand options for my clients.
