Introduction: Thank you for your interest in my wedding services. I am an ordained minister (not an Internet minister) and have performed hundreds of weddings and other ceremonies throughout Northeast Ohio. I personalize each service to meet your exact requests so that it reflects who you are, your relationship and your love for one another. The ceremony is non-denominational and invokes God/Higher Power as part of the service. Plus, I am happy to accommodate your specific spiritual beliefs. I will meet with you to review the entire ceremony and discuss various options like Unity ceremonies, readings and personal additions. I also direct the rehearsal and coordinate with the photographer, DJ/musicians, etc. My fees range from $175 to $200 for the ceremony and $90 for the rehearsal, if needed. A $50 deposit, that is part of the overall cost, is required to hold your date. I also offer a 20% discount for active military persons. I am licensed in Ohio, New York and Florida. If you really want an exceptional, special ceremony for the most important day of your life and not just a quick, impersonal service then I am the minister for you. My ceremonies are extremely personal and I have been told many times that they are the most beautiful services people have ever witnessed. I would be honored to create a special and meaningful ceremony just for you. I also offer other personal, non-denominational services including: vow renewals, baby blessings and celebration of life memorials.

May Hazel C.

Wedding Officiant

I’m so happy I got Shirley as our marriage officiant! She makes the whole ceremony amazing and wonderful. Even on a short notice she was very helpful and makes it easy for me not to worry about the ceremony itself even without rehearsal. During this crazy covid time Shirley made my cozy little wedding beyond perfect and I couldn’t ask for more. Would definitely recommend her as your wedding officiant!!! I will probably even get her to perform our baby blessing soon!!! We love her!! -Joe and Haze

You were the perfect person to lead our wedding ceremony. It wouldn’t have been the same without you. You helped us stay relaxed and comfortable through the entire time with your confidence and warm smile." Everything went smoothly and was meaningful. Your delivery of explanation of the meaning of marriage was a very special part of the ceremony. 😊

Wedding Officiant

My now husband and I were extremely lucky to find Rev. Shirley Macfarland on Thumbtack. She was the first wedding officiant we looked into, and we were so pleased after having met her in person, that we decided to go with her to officiate our wedding! We received SO many compliments from friends and family about how beautiful her ceremony was. Everything she said throughout the ceremony suited us perfectly. We were truly lucky to have her as such an integral part of our special day. We highly recommend her.

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

    A wedding ceremony is $200 and $90 for a rehearsal. For a quick, small wedding with just the bride and groom and no rehearsal the fee is $175. I offer a 20% discount for active military persons.

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

    I always meet with my wedding couples to go over the entire ceremony to customize and personalize it to their wishes. This can be done in person, Zoom, FaceTime or phone.

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

    I was ordained in 1998 at Fellowships of the Spirit in Lily Dale, NY. This is a three-year school with a highly intensive curriculum. Plus, I am always researching additions for new ceremonies and trends to add to my wedding service.
