F.A.Q.s

What Type of Ceremonies do you have?

I perform many different types of Wedding Ceremonies- Traditional, Non-Traditional, Religious and Non-Religious, Vow Renewal and same-sex Weddings. Each of these services can be customized to the couple. Also, see under the Ceremonies Tab.


What if I do not know what should be included in a Wedding service?

You do not have to worry about that. I will help you design the service you are looking for and make sure that all required items are included. This can be done by phone if you are from out of state or in person if living here in Alaska.


Do you provide a printed copy of the wedding ceremony?

Yes, I do provide you with a beautiful copy of the service that also has a decorative Certificate of Marriage in it.


What about Photographs during the service?

Photography is fine throughout the service as long as they are not intrusive during the service itself and if in a church or chapel no flash photography during the ceremony itself, only before and after the service.


What about Premarital counseling?

I do offer Premarital counseling to anyone I marry but I do not require it. I am always more than happy to help you out with any questions you may have. If you would like a premarital counseling session just let me know. 


Do you offer wedding planning services?

I can help you plan your wedding but if you are looking for someone to really put the whole thing together, I would be more than happy to refer you to a planner. If it is just where to find things like venues or DJs/music please look at my tab under ASSOCIATED LINKS

What our customers are saying

We had a destination wedding in Marathon Texas at the local gardens. We choose Celtic Ministries to officiate over the wedding because we wanted to be able to customize our wedding and include our family and friends in the service. I could not be happier! Thanks so much for making our day so special.
