Greetings and Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, my name is Reverend Brian Grinde. I am honored that you are considering me as your Marriage Officiant.
One of the most important moments of your life is your wedding day. There is nothing more important to me than for everything to be just the way you want it. I am passionate about creating and officiating a ceremony that celebrates the unique qualities of your individual selves as well as your relationship. In getting to know each other, I find out how personal you want your ceremony to be. You may like me to tell a bit of your history, how you met, what makes your relationship magical and incorporate that into your wedding ceremony.
Many of the couples I marry come from different religious or spiritual backgrounds, therefore I can create a ceremony that is inclusive of all traditions and beliefs.
I have creative ways to include family and friends in your ceremony as well, making it truly memorable. I love adding a bit of humor also and making your ceremony one that everyone will remember for years to come. Your guests may not remember the food or the music years from now but they will remember your ceremony.
I take the time to make sure that your wedding day is memorable and stress free.
I am truly honored to be a part of the glorious celebration of love for all LGBT couples who want to declare their commitment to spend their lives together as a married couple.
Add a bit of Adventure in your Wedding Ceremony:
