INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Hindu, Jewish
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
We have the ability and willingness to travel to the site you choose for your ceremony. If you have not selected a venue for your wedding ceremony, we can make suggestions based on what your style and preferences you have. Both indoor and outdoor sites are available.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Normally the attire that is worn is professional neutral. If you prefer religious attire and a more formal impression that is also an option for you communicate as your personal preferences. Whenever possible we dress to color coordinate with the wedding party with taste and very subtlety.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely! That is the manner in which we specialize. We feel that as every relationship is unique, so should their ceremony be. That is, when the couple shares that belief. However we can gladly provide traditionally prepared content if that is what a couple decides is best for them. A combination of contemporary and traditional can also be used.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
We most definitely do. We certainly can offer suggestions and resources if requested or we simply allow the couple to share and express what they choose, based on their personal decisions of style and individual expression.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
We have an extensive library and collection of readings, poems and sacred text selections that we can suggest or recommend, but final selection are all individually decided and approved, rather than made mandatory.
How long are your ceremonies?
Length often varies based on number of musical selections and added content, variations such as reading and/or poetry. Although this is not always published as a set time, the average ceremony tends to be 25-30 minutes, unless a couple decides to shorten or lengthen the time of their ceremony.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
This is not required but it is available and in some cases strongly recommended. The final decision for this is left up to the couple and often counseling is done at a later time in their marriage if circumstances change or develop that make counseling a wise choose to serve the marriage and the related family members that seek or partake in counseling options. We also offer individual and group relationship programming to promote and maintain healthy marriages and intimate personal relationships.circumstances change or develop that make counseling a wise choose to serve the marriage and the related family members that seek or partake in counseling options. We also offer group relationship programming to promote and maintain healthy marriages and intimate personal relationships.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Certainly! This optional service is discussed and decided by the couple. Often this is recommended, but it is not a mandatory requirement. Usually this is based on a number of deciding factors discussed with the couple for their final decision based on preferences and needs.
Do you supply a sound system?
A sound system can be added to the service needs for a ceremony. This too, is discussed and finally decided upon by the couple based on the ceremony venue, number of guests and other logistical considerations. Providing a sound system is an added charge for a nominal amount.

We feel so fortunate to have found Reverend Eva to officiate our wedding. From our first meeting, we could see that Reverend Eva was such a kind and warm person. She took genuine interest to get to know us as individuals and a couple so that she could craft the the appropriate words for our ceremony. As I came from a religious upbringing but my husband did not, it was important for us to combine religious and secular elements in the ceremony. Reverend Eva provided a solid framework and outline for the ceremony and readily provided suggestions, but was also open to hearing our thoughts and ideas, as well. She was available for multiple meetings leading up to the wedding and was quick to respond to emails. The day of the wedding, I appreciate that she took both myself and my husband aside for a quiet moment and provided a calming energy prior to the ceremony. I would highly recommend Reverend Eva to any couple.

My deep gratitude and appreciation to you both. It was a pleasure to meet your families and see what a sincere care and regard they have for you. I enjoyed spending time with your parents, siblings and friends. I will treasure the memories each time I glance at the awesome engagement picture you gave to me a gift. All my very best to you both. BTW I really enjoyed the craft beer theme at your reception and the adorable comment Michael made to me before the ceremony "there could have been more".

Eva did a great job. She looked and sounded amazing on our wedding day. We actually got compliments on her officiating! She was incredibly professional throughout the entire process and available via Skype. While there were some minor issues with using the correct draft of our ceremony, we spent a lot of time looking for the right officiant and in the end she was the right one for us!

Thank you for your review and kind words! The overall average of my rating has been impacted by your response. I value ALL my customer experiences and I would be interested in the quality of service rating more specifically. As for the value, that of course, I understand is perceptual. My fees are not the industry, lowest for many reasons; some which are experience, education, personal demand and market supported, however, there certainly are many local officiants charging higher price points so value is something I give a great priority to. Hence, if this were brought forth to me directly I would be very open to offering options to add value such as unlimited client meetings and post nuptial support. As for the responsiveness rating this also is something that I feel is paramount to adding value to service. As a solo practice, I do at times have a somewhat delayed reply time. My goals is to reply to ALL clients within the day they contact me but at times it will be within 24 hours since I am often in consultations, client meetings and out of my office performing other services and ceremonies. Again, I am very grateful for your reply and for the thoughtfulness of allowing me to have a greater understanding of your experience to assist me in improving myself and the experience of others that I will continue to serve.

Reverend Eva was an amazing officiant! She was great to meet with in the months leading up to the wedding, and helped us plan our Indian/American fusion wedding ceremony so that it was cohesive and honored both sides. She was a calming presence throughout the planning and on the day. You can tell she definitely cares about the couples. We couldn't have asked for more!

Reverend Eva was awesome. She was so helpful through out the entire process. We had a multicultural wedding and she was easily able to incorporate everything that we wanted in our ceremony. She was incredibly flexible (as we had some last minute changes). What was really thoughtful were the meetings we were able to have with her through out the wedding planning process. You could tell she just didn't want to plug us into a "template." She really wanted to get to know us as people, and I think it showed during the ceremony. Would recommend to anyone in the Milwaukee area. Thanks Reverend Eva! Val and Amanda

We loved working with Eva! She was very flexible with scheduling days and times to meet to make our ceremony content perfect! She is very professional and very easy to talk to. It felt like we were meeting with a friend when discussing details about our wedding. All of our friends and family said they enjoyed her as well and would go to her church if she were a pastor somewhere!! I would recommend her to everyone I know that is getting married!

We had a great experience working with Eva. She was a joy to work with and was on board with making the ceremony a celebration instead of a formality. She was also very easy to work with on the level of religion we wanted in the ceremony, understanding that everyone's faith is different. We are so glad we selected Eva to work with! We received many compliments on the ceremony and Eva from our guests.

Rev. Eva Overholt was very friendly and inviting from the moment we stepped into her office. She laughed with us and encouraged us in what we have been through in life and our relationship with each other and celebrated our decision to wed each other. Andy and I wanted a very, very simple ceremony, just tie the knot and move on. Rev. Eva surprised us with a beautiful ceremony - one we didn't even know we wanted - she took the little things we said about ourselves in the hour meeting we had with her prior to the wedding day and came up with beautiful sentiment that made our marriage ceremony so much more than the legal necessity. Rev Eva has a beautiful soul. She made us feel that we have a friend for life in her and I will surely recommend her to friends and family!

We worked with Reverend Eva Overholt and were so pleased with her services. We come from different religious backgrounds and she made sure to design a ceremony that was reflective of us as individuals and a couple. We truly appreciated how willing she was to design a custom ceremony for us and had a lot of fun working with her. She was recommended to us by a friend and I have already recommended her services to two other brides! We received so many compliments on our ceremony and HIGHLY recommend Eva Overholt if you are looking for an officiant that will listen to you and design a ceremony that is truly reflective of you as a couple.

The most important part of a wedding is the actual ceremony and Reverand Eva did a wonderful job getting to know us and customizing the ceremony to fit us as a couple. She has a way with words, our vows were beautiful and really touched us on a deep emotional and spiritual level. She was there to calm me when things were not going so well before the ceremony, she is an amazing person and I highly recommend her if you want a beautiful ceremony that will touch the hearts of all who witness it.

A moment before going to walk down the aisle Reverend Eva came to speak with me in private. All the hustle and bustle of the day became calm and I was able to focus more clearly on what was important. They truly do take the time to get to know you and care about what’s important to you on your wedding day. I cannot say enough positive things about Creative Ministries and their kind and caring personalities. I would highly recommend there services.

I can't think of enough good things to say about Reverend Eva. She helped to make our ceremony exactly what we wanted and we received so many compliments about it, and her, after the wedding. I had many questions and tend to be a bit of a perfectionist so I contacted her many times throughout the planning process. She was always patient and never once made me feel as though I were a bother.
She has since officiated at 3 of our friend's weddings and they've all had wonderful things to say about her as well. She's incredibly genuine and shows a sincere interest in you and your life and family. She married us almost 9 years ago and we still keep in touch. I would (and have!), without hesitation, recommend Reverend Eva and Creative Ministry Center!
