Services Offered
As a non-denominational Interfaith Minister, Barbara Ann Michaels welcomes all religions, faiths, and secular traditions in her ceremonies. Michaels embraces marriage equality, and feels honored and joyful to marry same-sex couples. She starts with an interview of the couple together, either live in person, by questionnaire, or both, to gather information about your beliefs, wishes, and ideas for your ceremony. From there she writes a custom ceremony that mirrors the special love and commitment you share. You either edit together with her, or she edits for you, to your desire. Michaels offers several wedding packages, from fully-customized ceremonies to pre-written ceremonies and simple elopements - all of which are personalized to you in some way... because your wedding day is truly all about you.
