I am an ordained minster who finds great joy in leading each couple through their own, individual service of marriage.

You may choose a tradtional, non-traditional, non-denominational, or clearly denominational wedding service for your own.

We may explore symbols and elements from many religions, like Buddism, Judiasm, and ancient Christianity to add to your wedding ceremony and to make it meaningful to you.

If you choose to write your own vows, I will help you weave them into a unified and lovely ceremony. Or, as a professional writer, I can help you write your own vows and design a ceremony that is only yours.

Any way we plan it, your ceremony will be your own unique celebration of marriage.

We had to get legally married last minute and were unable to be available to be married by a judge so we had to hire an officiant. I contacted Margaret via this website to see if she would be able to marry us on short notice. She answered the first phone call I made, was very nice and listened... Let me say that again... She listened extremely well to make sure that what was said in the ceremony reflected our beliefs and what we wanted in this ceremony which for the most part was simplicity. I had only spoken to her twice on the phone and we were unable to meet in person before the ceremony which is something she usually prefers but it wasn't possible for us. She was extremely flexible and well prepared for the ceremony. She kept it brief and it was only semi-scripted which was nice, it had more of a personal touch to it. Again Margaret was nice and it was better than we imagined given the situation. We are very lucky to have found her and are very appreciative.

Margaret was a pleasure to work with. Our ceremony was an intimate ceremony in our home and she made sure to make this day special for us. I would reccommend Margaret to anyone whether your event is big or small. I received several compliments on our wedding officiant prior to and after the ceremony. I am so thankful to have found her.

Margaret was wonderful to work with! We sat down with her a told her about ourselves and our lives. She came up with the most wonderful ceremony. She also came up with ways to include my 8yr old daughter and our soon to be born son. I would highly recommend Margaret to anyone who is looking to have a beautiful, well put together ceremony. Never had any problems getting a hold of her via email or by phone. We had so many guests tell us how beautiful and sentimental the ceremony was. I can't wait to get the video back from the videographer :)

What to say about Margaret....
She is just one of the kindess people I have had the pleasure of meeting. She really took my ideas and made my ceremony so touching and wonderful. My husband and I would choose Margaret 10x over :) she really took the time to make our day truly special and numerous people said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have attended.

Our ceremony went absolutely perfect & even when Harley and I were nervous and crying and barely holding it together I was able to look at Margret and pull it together because she remains cool and collected. :)
If you want a ceremony full of beautiful words and memories choose Margret you will NOT regret it she is absolutley WONDERFUL!
Can't imagine choosing anyone else to officiate my marriage. My Husband and I absolutley adored Margret, just an overall great person.
Thank you for Everything Margret!

Sincerely,
The New Mr. & Mrs. Arnson

Margaret performed a beautiful wedding ceremony for us just this past weekend. She is a very caring and considerate person, and it shows through in the ceremony. She has a great smile in her voice. She is very easy to work with, and she will personalize your ceremony to exactly what you are looking for. I highly recommend her as a wedding officiant.

Margaret performed a wonderful ceremony for my husband and I. She wrote the ceremony from scratch for us and even customized it with a poem that we wanted to include. It was short and sweet (exactly how we wanted it!) and we could not have asked for a better officiant. We received compliments all night about how wonderful and personalized our ceremony was for us. Thank you, thank you!

Margaret was the best officiant for our wedding. I could not have asked for a better, more professional, more loving and in touch person. She made our special moment even more special just by being herself. I'll forever be grateful and thankful that we chose her to be the one to marry us. I would absolutely recommend Margaret to anyone.

Our Wedding was simple and intimate and Margaret was sensitive to our request and did a splendid heartfelt ceremony that was deeply personal. She has a gift for "setting the mood" and created a sacred space with her words that spoke of our love and our life. She did an amazing job in understanding our wishes and wove the threads of our life in a way that honored our families, our challenges and our hopes! I can not think of anyone I would rather have had as our officiant. Thanks Margaret!

We thoroughly enjoyed having Margaret as our officiant at our wedding. She was very enthusiastic and really added a personal touch to the ceremony. Our wedding was very small and unstructured and Margaret was very helpful in writing the ceremony and adapting to the last minute location. We felt that she really cared about our ceremony and enjoyed performing it with us.

Margaret married my husband and I on August 11. She was very easy to get along with and accommodating to our needs. We were blending two families together and she helped us include this in the ceremony. Even with the weather being questionable for our outdoor ceremony, she was always positive everything would be fine. I would like to thank her for the wonderful ceremony she provided for us and would definitely recommend her.

I attended a small backyard wedding that Margaret Broersma officiated on June 9, 2012. The wedding was my co worker's daughter, a couple that I don't know personally. I met Margaret immediately, and she was very gracious and professional. The bride and groom requested it be a secular wedding, with no mention of faith or God. Margaret did an amazing job personalizing the service with stories near to their heart and situation, as well as using poetry from the bride's favorite author. I would definitely recommend her to officiate any type of service. Her background as an English teacher comes through in a very eloquent way. Libby DeLong

Margaret brought Cathy & I together before God in a spirit filled, sensitive way, speaking with us, and our small congregation in a way that would uplift even the most empty of hearts. We are solid in our relationship together and with God, who continues to unify us daily, and Margaret saw to it that our ceremony reflected our strong faith in one another, and with God. If we got married again (Silver or Gold anniversary?), we would not hesitate to have her officiate. A caring, God-fearing, spiritually discerning person.
