Introduction: My couples say that they appreciate me being down-to-earth, my flexibility and caring personality. Venue planners have said they appreciate how organized and prepared I am so they can focus on other details for the couple. My greatest reward has been meeting couples, like you, and learning about your love story (how you met, feel in love, the proposal, etc.) and getting to know you. I've met so many wonderful couples through my officiant journey and will have memories to last a lifetime. If you are interested in a brief introduction Zoom, GoogleMeets or phone call to see if I am a good fit for you, we can arrange a time that works with your schedules.

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.

i don't know what to say. Patti Ruhala made our wedding day go off with out a hitch, she managed to keep our crazy family members from destroying our special day and she was able to make a ceremony fit to us. both my husband and i were so worried that we would for get the words and she was able to structure it so that we didn't have to remember much. also, we had several little ones in our party and she worked well with all of them helping us to help them with there parts in the wedding.
Rev. Patti Ruhala, Officiant in Michigan's reply
Thank you. Children are an important part of your lives and it is always a pleasure to include them and let them feel a part of the day. It's about them too. So glad everyone is doing well.

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.

Jennifer, thank you. I'm so pleased and proud I was able to be a part of your family's special day!

Patti Ruhala


  • 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.
