Rev. Misty , Ordained Clergy, Certified Wedding Officiant in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.About Rev. Misty
Owner of the
wedding ministry

I strive to provide the professional and personal service you need when looking for a wedding celebrant for your marriage ceremony or commitment ceremony. Based in the Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan area, I'm available to perform all sorts of weddings from simple and quick marriage vows to custom weddings planned well in advance for your special day.

Ordained clergy since 2004 and a Certified Wedding Officiant, I chose the Universal Life Church because it is an advocate of religious freedom, and embraces ministers from all spiritual traditions and walks of life. This ordination allows me to perform couple-centered marriages legally in the state of Michigan that do not require couples to prescribe to a specific religious denomination.

I live in Grand Rapids and am owned by a Springer Spaniel dog and an energenic puppy. I have an extensive collection of eclectic books, fabric and fun refrigerator magnets. I also enjoy gardening, raising obscure raspberry varieties and canning unusual jams and jellies.

Misty is a member of the West Michigan Wedding Association, the American Council of Wedding Officiants, and the American Association of Wedding Officiants.

Contact Misty today at 616-915-8444 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your upcoming nuptials or for more information.
