IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR NEW BRIDES!!!

Posted on Sun, Oct 9, 2016

Dr Kelsey Graham Ministries Birmingham Wedding Minister, Gulf Coast Wedding Officiant. Nashville, Knoxville. Atalanta

2017 the year of turn key weddings.... We want to focus on YOU and what YOU want. In order to provide the very best for you we are headed in a new direction.



I have been working on a lot of changes to what we do in our ministry- our specialty being weddings. Absolutely no one, no other wedding minister, officiant, celebrant in the southeast does what we do. We are a five star ministry, rated as such by our couples. And no one has the education and experience that Dr Graham has.

We love serving. However there is only so much of us to go around. Combine that with other factors and here is where we are now planning to go in 2017.

We will no longer just officiate over a wedding ceremony. We offer a package service ONLY.

Our package includes Minister (specially scripted ceremony based on who the couple is and what they want) Photography- We will put our photography up against anybody in the southeast- meaning we are at least as good as any one else out there period.

Video

Photo booth if desired. We provide props as well.

Our package includes rehearsal and director/ coordonator for you weddiing day and reception. Our mobile wedding chapel is set and ready to come to you or the location of your chosing to provide YOU with a wedding that is affordable and stress free.

YOUR LOCATION- we set up and break down.



Jefferson and surrounding counties $5,000.00 outside of that area $6,000.

Special request considered for additional fee. We will only be booking 2 weddings a month.

We will honor our commitments for weddings already booked for 2017 but will not accept any bookings going forward except those that fall into our package guidelines. We will no longer book for OFFICIANT/ MINISTER only.

Dr Kelsey Graham Ministries The number 1 place to go to for your wedding day. Absolutely the best. With a lifetime of service, ministerial training and experience, Dr Kelsey brings over 4 decades of public speaking and service to your big day!!



Remember: It is YOUR wedding. You deserve and have a right to have YOUR wedding YOUR way. WIth me you have 100% control over the ceremony. From the way I dress to the words I use- This celebration is about YOU not me.


A completely non-judgemental officiant who works with the bride and groom to provide the service they desire. From traditional to the most non-traditional I am able and willing to work with you under all circumstances at any time in order to ensure that you have the wedding of your dreams. Whether you are looking for a Civil Service, Spiritual, Religious, Non-religious, Pagan, Second Marriage, Themed Wedding, Interfaith Ceremony, Renewal of Vows, or a mix of everything (wink) we can work together to make your ceremony uniquely yours. As a minister and as a former bridal consultant Dr Kelsey will be able to give you a ceremony that suits your needs and make your Big Day as stress-free as possible.

Our menu of services has kept growing over the years-

Dr Kelsey Graham, AKA the Nomadic Officiant offers video tours of some wonderful places in the southeast for your wedding, photo shoots or event- a new location every week: http://kelseygr.wix.com/drkelseygraham#!venue-tours/j4i7u

The wedding industry has been good to me as well as the vendors and venues. It has given me an outlet for my years of training in ministerial services. For that reason I have for the last 9 months provided an outlet for venues and vendors to promote their services on my Radio Show Alabama Wedding Radio. All the shows I have ever done are archived here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alabama-Wedding-Radio/1441966346078301?ref=hl

Now serving the entire southeast- Tennessee, Alabama through the gulf coast. I am semi retired and love to travel.

Despite the fact that the most common trends of wedding ceremonies abide by the traditional religious or cultural practices of marriage, agnostic or secular wedding ceremonies are now also widely practiced as exampled by Kelsey Many couples prefer unconventional forms of wedding ceremonies and are abandoning the long process of traditional religious ceremonies due to time constraints. Unlike traditional wedding ceremonies that typically take place in churches, mosque, or other religious areas, nonreligious weddings like civil weddings occur in courthouses, wedding chapels, reception halls, or outdoors. These events tend to be much smaller and are less formal compared to that of traditional religious wedding ceremonies. Instead of a priest or rabbi presiding over the ceremony as the officiant, government-approved officials or secular officials serve as the facilitator of nonreligious weddings .

In any form of wedding ceremony—whether traditional religious or agnostic—couples exchange marriage vows or promises. In traditional religious wedding ceremonies, wedding vows exchanged by the spouses are often prescribed by their church. However, in the unconventional forms of wedding ceremonies, wedding vows can be written by the bride and the groom, so as to give them a chance to express their personal commitment to each other Generally, a wedding ceremony is one way of defining the rights and obligations of the partners toward each other. However, whatever wedding ceremony the couple prefers to follow, be it the traditional religious ceremony or secular ceremony, the value of the occasion is embedded in the new beginning that the couple is about to face together.

. This is YOUR wedding, not mine. Presented in a professional manner that will make your wedding day what YOU want it to be.

You will find that I am the most DO-ABLE Officiant available. Read less

Dr. Graham and his photographer were absolutely wonderful. After searching thru many places and people, we came across the perfect officiant. The little chapel we chose in Cullman was simple but elegant. They were super nice with the kids and patient, especially with the 2 littlest ones. They made our day extraordinarily special. Thanks guys.

Don't look any farther. Dr. Graham went above and beyond. He provided the most intimate, heart felt, and exciting ceremony. My coordinator did not get the video recorded. Later, after messaging with Dr. Graham, he had the most excited surprise! Yes, he had it all on video, I was ecstatic. He's quick to respond and even had more answers for me days after the ceremony, when really I should have called the courthouse. But he knew! If anyone has questions for me regarding his services and professionalism, please feel free to message me. He's definitely 10⭐️Rated in our books!

On Decemmber 23rd 2016, my partner of 17 years and I were married by Dr Kelsey Graham.

Kelsey and Catherine Marie could not have been more wonderful. They are joyous and loving people. When we first looked for a celebrant, I expected to find someone who could recite the magic words and perform the ceremony, but what we recieved was so much more.

Kelsey and Catherine Marie took the time to get to know us, and composed a beautiful service. They went above and beyond all of our expectations. They set up the room beautifully and thought of so many details that hadn't occured to us. They even arranged to stream the service so that our friends and family in 3 continents could virtually join us.

If you are considering getting married in the south east, I cannot recommend Kelsey and Catherine Marie more highly.

I would advise that they immediately hire Kelsey and Catherine Marie. They were loving and friendly and extremely helpful, turning our small wedding into a beautiful event. In the ceremony Kelsey did a great job of balancing levity and seriousness. People literally laughed and cried, which is exactly what we wanted. They were extremely flexible and made great suggestions that really improved the ceremony. Plus they're both just very nice people that are fun to be around.

We chose Dr. Kelsey Graham and Catherine Marie to perform our wedding ceremony and we were so pleased! They took time to meet with us and make sure the ceremony was truly our own! They gave us some great suggestions and let us add our touches to it. They were great with staying in contact and making sure we were stress-free! A family emergency came up for Dr. Graham, so Catherine-Marie performed our ceremony. She did a wonderful job. Would definitely recommend choosing them to officiate your big day!
