From elopements to formal weddings, I've been performing civil ceremonies as a non-religious wedding officiant since 2009, when I created A Simple Ceremony. I specialize in civil, atheist, secular humanist, interfaith and LGBT weddings, ceremonies, and elopements in Southeast Michigan.

My ceremonies are couple-focused, and it is always important to me that every word be meaningful and relevant to you.


I enjoy helping make every wedding ceremony reflect the individuality of the couple and their relationship - that is what a wedding is about, after all! A civil, secular or non-religious ceremony is a celebration of love and a couple's individual relationship. I offer sample ceremonies and a variety of readings, options and ideas to help each couple find, create and experience the ceremony that reflects their personalities and unique relationship. All of my sample text is free from mention of any religion. Please note: as a non-religious wedding officiant I don’t perform any religious readings, mention any specific higher power or say prayers. However, those can be included if spoken by someone other than myself. There are many ways for inter-faith couples to blend traditions that both can be happy about. Every part of your ceremony can be customized. Include personal touches, humorous readings or a special theme. I look forward to helping make your ceremony an easy, memorable and fun focal point of your wedding day. Please visit my website for details and contact me to check availability or ask questions. Be sure to specify your ceremony date, time and location when inquiring. I look forward to helping you!
Stacey Swickerath (Reverend)

Stacey was an absolute joy to work with! She was excited to be apart of our wedding and extremely professional and knowledgeable, not to mention personable and friendly. She was very helpful in showing us how we could make our wedding creative and unique to us, and she made us feel comfortable. The wedding turned out just like we wanted it to. We highly recommend Stacey to anyone who is looking for an officiant!

Stacey worked with my partner and I to create a ceremony that reflected our personal attitudes. We were planning our wedding from Australia to take place in Ann Arbor, MI. Stacey was accessible by email and phone to us. We would suggest an idea to her. Afterwards, she would come back with very thoughtful comments on how that might be perceived by our audience.

John and I were married at the Matthaei Botanic Gardens on December 19, 2015 with a total of 19 people in attendance. It was everything both of us could have ever wished for. Stacey played a large part in making that day so special. She is charismatic and presented herself professionally and yet warmly to our guests. Thank you Stacey!

Stacey was great to work with. She was not only a well-spoken officiant for our ceremony; she took the time to help as a mistress of ceremony as well. She checked in on me as the bride to alert me when we were ready to begin, helped gather our small group of 25 guests for the ceremony itself, and even assisted our photographer when it came time for group shots. She definitely went above and beyond what was expected of her, and did so voluntarily. We couldn't have been happier with her and her services. Thank you, Stacey!

Stacey was a fabulous officiant. She was super easy going, very willing to make our ceremony just how we wanted, and she absolutely nailed it at our wedding. She definitely practiced the ceremony beforehand as she didn't stumble once, and she came prepared with the ceremony printed out in a cute little book and even had our vows printed out in case my husband or I forgot them. She took care in mailing off our marriage license so we didn't have to worry about a thing afterward!

She was very professional and kind. I would definitely recommend Stacey as an officiant!

If I had to plan a wedding again, A Simple Ceremony would be the first vendor I would call! Stacey took the ramblings of my husband and I and created a beautiful and moving ceremony that made 50% of our guests cry and 100% say that it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. She was able to work with both our schedules (neither my husband or I lived in Michigan during the entire planning process) and was incredibly prompt in responding to me whenever I had a question. She was even able to handle conflicts with our family members with incredible grace. Stacey helped make our day incredibly special and less stressful!
