JOYFULL-BEGINNINGS
Rev. Marva Taylor
Wedding Minister/Officiant

   I'm happy to officiate any celebration using any wording or theme.
Indoors or out, a backyard, a park, a lake - anywhere.

I will provide you with my 'Ceremony Creator' that is 33 pages of readings, poems, vows, etc. (both Secular & Religious), so that you can create a unique
and personalized ceremony that will perfectly
express your beliefs & love.

Let me help you make your wedding day perfect!



​Serving Mason County and the surrounding area.​

WEDDINGS

Civic/Secular Ceremony:  Without reference to religion or spirituality.   
Non-denominational: Christian or traditional ceremony that doesn't reference any one particular religion.
Inter-faith:  For couples of different faiths, blending the traditions of both.
Spiritual:  Whatever resonates to your heart, including Wiccan, Pagan and other alternative beliefs.

VOW  RENEWALS

Whether you've been married one year or fifty, renewing your vows to one another is the perfect way to tell your mate how deep your love is.
And this time you can have the ceremony exactly how you'd like it.   

HANDFASTINGS

An ancient Celtic and Pagan tradition as a pledge of commitment, betrothal or marriage.  The vows may be taken for "a year and a day", "a lifetime", "for all of Eternity" or "for as long as love shall last".
The couple's clasped hands are bound together with a cord, hence the phrase "tying the knot".
Handfasting can also be included as a romantic addition  to any ceremony. 

SAME  SEX  MARRIAGES

Same sex marriages are now legal thoughout the United States and am honored to serve the LGBTQ community.

Pricing:  ​​$150 includes receiving the 'Ceremony Creator' to create a personalize ceremony.
There is a $100 non-refundable Save-the-Date Deposit.
A Travel Fee of $20 applies if the location is over 25 miles from my home in Fountain.
I don't travel over 50 miles from the Ludington area because a traffic problem could make me late and the last thing you need
to worry about on your wedding day is the Officiant being late.
A Rehearsal on a previous day is $50.

I will arrive half an hour before the wedding starts, perform the ceremony & fill out the marriage license.
Also, I will be working with you every step of the way to make this is as easy & stress free as possible.


About me:

I became an Ordained Wedding Minister from the Universal Life Church in Modesto, CA in 2016 and have had the pleasure of officiating over 20 weddings so far.

I grew up in Scottville and have lived in the area all my life. Many of you may remember me from Emerson Lake Inn – I was a waitress there for ten years. I also worked at the Little River Casino for 11 years in the Players Club. I love serving people and making them happy. Now as a Wedding Minister, I get to help couples make the most important day of their lives more beautiful and stress free.
