    When planning your special day, here are several good reasons to have me perform your wedding ceremony. I am a local Akron pastor with a church that meets in the Cuyahoga Falls/Akron area. Even if you never attend our church, you are treated like you are a part of our spiritual family. So you have the stability of someone who is professional clergy and not someone who just performs weddings as a side business. Unlike other churches and ministers, I do not require any testing, counseling or church membership. I also don't try to convert you like other churches and ministers do. The bottom line is that you receive no judgment or hassle from me at all! I just perform your ceremony! My fee is affordable with you picking how much I receive within a range so that everyone can use me. I never charge extra for mileage, rehearsals or recorded music during your ceremony. I will also travel anywhere in Ohio to perform your ceremony! You get to choose what is said during your ceremony with our many wedding vow choices. Each ceremony I perform is different, reflecting the couples tastes and love for each other. I also do theme weddings with us working together on the perfect ceremony for you! I offer many services that premium wedding officiants offer at $800 plus including customized vows, the use of a portable PA system (valued at $75-$250 alone!) and you choosing what I will wear during the ceremony (either a suit and tie or a clergy robe). We offer the same pre-marital counseling through prepare/enrich that other churches or counselors would offer at only $35/session, if you would like. Plus, my couples always have my office number for counseling after their ceremony, if desired. I also know how to provide a letter of counseling when requested by the local probate court. All at no additional charge. My experience in performing weddings shows up on your special day. I have been trained and am associated with one of Northeastern Ohio top wedding officiants, Rev. Jonathon Miller. My background includes broadcasting, public speaking and ministry. As I tell all my couples, I have the heart of a pastor and the mind of a performer. Your wedding ceremony is in good hands when I am the officiant. Why take chances on your special day with a mail order/internet "minister" with no formal training or mentorship? There is no one in this area that offers what I offer at so little money! Give me the opportunity to show you that I am the best value for your wedding dollar. I have plenty of open dates for 2016. Contact me ASAP! I am already turning down business on some dates. Thank you and best wishes! PS: Here is an unsolicited Facebook post from Kelly Pifer Photography. I want to give a shout out to my friend and favorite wedding officiant of all time, Pastor Michael Mangus. If you are a bride looking for someone to create an amazing, personal, moving and memorable wedding ceremony for you, please check out Pastor Mangus' website. He is the real deal and we photographers love working with him as he works with us to ensure we capture all of the moments of your wedding ceremony. And on top of all that, this fine gentleman has his own sound system so no matter the location you choose for your ceremony you will have music and everyone will hear the joy in your voice as you say your vows. Thank you, Pastor Mangus, for sharing another wonderful wedding day with me this past Saturday, I can only hope to work with you again and again.

  • Performing ceremonies that have gained respect and words of praise from marrying couples is the result of a combination of skills, experience and dedication to the fundamental purposes of marriage. These purposes are reflected in the vows and the wording of the ceremony that the couple recite—often traditional and always heartfelt. My wife—ordained, licensed and degreed—manages a flawless ceremony. I have a doctorate degree from CWRU. I am also ordained and licensed with training as a counselor. I work with couples until a successful ceremony, that I personally minister over and oversee, is assured. Cost is kept reasonable.

  • Tim Greathouse

    What is the right wedding ceremony for a religiously independent couple? A courthouse ceremony is cold, impersonal and over in a flash. A church ceremony is long, boring and an affront to your beliefs. Pick your poison -- chilly and colorless or tedious and offensive. Screw the poison and pop open the champagne. Your perfect ceremony awaits! It's short, simple, secular, and spectacular. You may call me or visit my website for reviews, photos and more.

You tell me what kind of vows you want, the date and the time, and I will be there to marry you (uh, preside over your wedding). I can also attend any practice ceremonies and do whatever you need to make sure that your special day comes off without a hitch. "I will marry you."

  • Wellness With Sujata

    I offer wellness services as well as non-denominational wedding officiant services. For wedding services, please scroll to the bottom of this page. Sujata is a true health and wellness expert. She is a registered pharmacist in the state of Ohio and a certified menopause educator, specializing in women's health care and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, nutritional supplementation and other holistic approaches to managing symptoms of hormone imbalances. She is merging the best of Eastern and Western medicine. Hi, I'm Sujata, and I am honored to be connecting with you here on my website. As a woman and single mother of four children, I have struggled with self-care, endured toxic relationships and unexpected life-changing events, and have lived with the anguish of infertility and my own health and weight concerns. I understand how tough it can be to always give to others and deplete your energy reserves until you feel like you can no longer give to anyone, including yourself. I also understand the toll it takes to be in toxic relationships, where the only needs being met are the needs of others. I have heard the calling of my spirit that there is something more out there than what I know. While I know how tough it can be to navigate through obstacles and challenges, I also know how amazing it can be to reclaim your physical, emotional, and spiritual power. Through the practices I am committed to teaching you, I have embraced my circumstances, learned forgiveness and surrender, let go of relationships and situations that no longer serve me, and made space to allow for nourishing and loving experiences and relationships to enter. I have balanced my body with bio-identical hormone replacement, healthy nutrition, and physical fitness that suits my needs. I have transformed my mind through meditation, mindfulness, stress management techniques, and breathing techniques, and I have empowered my spirit by choosing to live my passion. I am excited to share this journey with you. Through my journey and experience, I am here to serve you. Born, raised, and educated in the Western world, but living in a household that practiced Eastern philosophy, Sujata had the desire to merge Western medicine with Eastern practices, thereby offering a more holistic approach to total health and well-being. As a result, Sujata sought certifications in mind-body practices. She is a Chopra Center certified primordial sound meditation instructor as well as a Chopra Center certified seven spiritual laws of yoga instructor. She is a Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher, a personal trainer, and holds various group exercise certifications. Understanding that you can achieve optimal health by giving your body what it needs to heal itself, Sujata uses holistic approaches to help reverse the damaging effects of stress, adverse effects of conventional medications and years of unhealthy lifestyle choices. Sujata is the owner of Wellness with Sujata, a health and wellness consulting practice designed to help clients take control of their total health and well-being by balancing their bodies, transforming their minds, and empowering their spirits. Areas of specialty include the following: * Holistic Approaches for Hormone Balancing * Meditation, Breathing and Mindfulness * Stress and Anxiety Management * Yoga, Fitness and Exercise Consultations * Nutritional Supplements, Detoxes and Cleanses * Weight Loss and Management * Self Perception and Nourishment Techniques For our current yoga class schedule, visit our website. Check back often for new class times. If you have a group of three or more, call to schedule a yoga day and time that works for you! Private and group sessions are available. Please contact me for details! Wedding Officiant Services: My name is Sujata Patel, and I am licensed to perform weddings in the State of Ohio. Your wedding is one of the most special and important days of your life. It is a day when you and the person you love will commit your lives to one another, and it should be everything you want it to be. It should be a reflection of who you are as individuals and as a couple, from your personalities to your deepest beliefs. I offer services designed to meet your needs. I will meet with you prior to your ceremony to review details, and to get to know who you are. I can help you write your own vows or create vows for you, if that's what you choose. You are in the driver's seat when it comes to what happens on your special day. Based on what you want specifically, I will create a beautiful, loving ceremony that celebrates the union of you and your love. I am non-religious, and do non-denominational weddings only. I can mention God, or I can leave the mention of God out. It is truly whatever reflects your desires. When your guests reflect on your ceremony, you want them to be able to say wow. That was the most beautiful celebration of them, their love and the union of their lives. I will help you create that. My rate is $250.00 which includes our initial meeting, the rehearsal (if needed) and the wedding ceremony itself. If I travel greater than 25 miles, then I will charge a travel fee as well. I encourage you to schedule an appointment to meet me and talk with me prior to making a commitment to use my services. It is very important that you feel comfortable and have a connection with the person who will participate in your day. This meeting is free of charge, and I can schedule it at a time that is convenient for you. I look forward to meeting you and helping you create the wedding of your dreams!

What do you love about your job?

I love helping brides! This is my 10th season of performing weddings outside of my church. I love providing professional services to couples at a very affordable price. There is no other wedding officiant in this area who provides the best of pastoral care, plus also the premium services of a higher priced wedding minister at an affordable price. And I love performing weddings! It is the best thing that I do in the local ministry.

Who inspired you to start your own business?

I started performing weddings in 2007 after being mentored by Northeast Ohio's premier wedding minister, The Reverend Jonathan Miller. After complaining that I was not making any money as the pastor of our church, John helped me by getting through our Board of Trustees a small stipend plus also taught me how to do weddings his way. Reverend Jon is a very experienced Minister with over 2,500 weddings under his belt. He is still a member of my church and very active in our music ministry.

Jon's method of working with couples and performing wedding ceremonies comes from his vast experience of over 30 years. I still ask for John's advice even today. He's been a true friend and mentor. He encouraged me to just do the ceremony and not hassle the couples like other ministers do in this area. The financial support that we receive through the honorarium or fee for ceremonies helps us to financially continue the ministry in Cuyahoga Falls.

    How wonderful. Pastor Michael returned emails and calls promptly, and set our minds at ease. Very well versed on how two out of state folks can get married in a park in Northeast ohio! We were able to hire him at nearly the last minute and he kept in nearly daily contact with us to reassure us and guide us along. The ceremony we selected was perfect, every thing we hoped for.
