Rev. Todd performed our wedding ceremony in Franklin, TN on 11/11/17. It was a destination wedding, so we were unsure of how to pick an officiant. Based on a recommendation from our wedding planner, we contacted Rev. Todd. From the 1st phone conversation, he was so positive and really interested in how we felt about life, love, and many things far beyond a wedding ceremony. For the ceremony itself, he incorporated a requested prayer and gave a funny but sweet rendition of how we first met. Prices were great and I highly recommend Rev. Todd!Nov 28, 2017
We booked our officiant Rev. Todd Ketner through Life Journey Ceremonies and we could not have been happier. My husband (then fiancé) and I had been having trouble finding an officiant who was accepting of our different religious backgrounds and who would listen and understand our story. We wanted to play a part in our ceremony but did not want to write our own vows since both of us are more quiet and reserved when it comes to personal emotions. With Rev. Todd we were able to have a sample of a personalized ceremony and I was able to add/change things in it so that it sounded more like what we thought we would say, he not only listened to our modifications but he loved them and took them very seriously. My favorite part (and our guests too!) was the part of the ceremony where our personal story was shared. Rev. Todd had spent time in premarital counseling and in an online questionnaire getting to know us so that way when he told the story of how we met and fell in love it sounded as if he had known us our whole relationship. The story was sweet, honest, and also added a bit of light and laughter to our wedding ceremony. He made our ceremony fun and it was nice to have that moment to smile and laugh with our guests in the middle of a serious commitment. We met with Rev. Todd in person two times before our wedding and he was available by text message any time I had and questions before and after our wedding. He is a kind, personable man who will help you make your wedding ceremony special- our wedding would not have been the same without him.Nov 17, 2017
Todd Ketner from Lifes Journey Ceremonies was our officiant for our wedding this October. I believe it was Gods plan to put Todd in our path for our wedding. My previous minister was unable to perform our wedding ceremony about 8 weeks before we got married. We contacted Todd and he had literally had a cancellation for our date the day before, it was a God thing! We met with Todd twice including our marriage counseling sessions and he really took the time to get to know us. His counseling sessions were also very helpful to us and made us learn a lot about our relationship. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect, religious but engaging, a little bit of humor and also personalized to tell the love story of my now husband and I. I would recommend Todd to any bride getting married. He did a wonderful job performing our wedding ceremony!Nov 9, 2015

We eloped to Tennessee and didn't get to meet our officiant until the day of, but we were so blessed with such an awesome one. Rev Todd couldn't have done a better job. He said just the right words to unit my husband and I. I would recommend him in a heart beat.Aug 22, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My special fee for Thumbtack customers is $195* for planning meeting, performing your ceremony, and filing your Marriage License with the county of issue. * Travel fees may apply.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to make a phone call right away and talk with the customer. We will then meet in order that I can get to know them as a couple and offer suggestions that will make the wedding ceremony uniquely theirs. All of our Officiants follow the same process of serving all of our Brides and Grooms. We maintain 24/7 contact with our couples up to the time of the ceremony for their convenience.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena CA, 1989. I have performed thousands of wedding ceremonies in several states since 1984 when I first became ordained to Ministry.
