Heartfelt Ministries opened in February of 2007, and is owned and operated by Rev. Kelly Hunt and Rev. Zita Ruediger. We are Interfaith/Non-Denominational ministers, and we truly believe that this is your wedding, and it should be all about you, your relationship, and your beliefs. We will work with you to build your perfect wedding ceremony, then one of us will come and perform it at the location of your choice, and take care of the paperwork for you too. To remember your special day, you will get a keepsake, bound copy of your ceremony, on photo-safe paper. Read less


What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
I am willing to perform your ceremony at the location of your choice: religious, non-religious, indoors or outdoors. I offer this service because the location is almost as important as the cermony itself. The location you choose can be a place that is important to both of you, or it can be a place that you have enjoyed together.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
The words used in your ceremony are chosen by you. I will send you some examples to help you get started, but I also encourage you to look at other resources too: books, the Internet, or a friend's ceremony. When you find what is perfect for you, send me a copy, and we will use that in your wedding.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Your vows are the most important part your ceremony, and should reflect what is important to you in your marriage. I fully incourage you to write your own, but I am also aware that not everyone is able to do this, so I have a wide range of vows that you may use too.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Additional readings are a way for you to further personalize your ceremony, if you have a favorite poet or author who has captured your views on marriage and love, we will use your choice. If you need some inspiration in this area, I have a wide range of ideas that you may use.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not require premaritial counceling, but that option is available, if you desire it.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I am availalbe to help you with a rehearsal for your wedding. There is an extra charge for this service, however. I charge seperately to help keep the cost of your ceremony as low as possible.

Overpriced. Hard to get in touch with.

Officiant did not show up for rehearsal. She had us down for the following weekend. The explanation was a computer virus that scrambled her files. Came on Saturday at 2:30 for our 4:00 ceremony. Wanted to do a quick rehearsal at 3:00. I did it because the flower girl and ring bearer were a little nervous about what to do. I was so
nervous and so was my maid of honor,
because she still had to do both of our hair. The ceremony was late but it was beautiful.

I worked closely with both Zita and Kelly in the planning and execution of the ceremony. Both were great to work with. I had a very close family member passed away week before my wedding, and both Kelly and Zita offered their time to me if I just needed to talk. They understood it would make my wedding day difficult. Zita took genuine interest in my loss and helped me cope with my loss.

Kelly and Zita offered several customizations for our ceremony. My husband and I made several selections from what they offered, but in the end we felt we needed to personalize the ceremony even more. We sent our thoughts to Kelly and Zita, they gave us their feedback, but in the end they allowed us to make the final decision. They made it clear that they were there to make our ceremony everything we wanted it to be yet ensured we get the legal aspect of the ceremony included. I worked closely with Zita on the changes to our ceremony, and she showed nothing but patience and understanding through the whole process.

The day of the wedding; everything went seemlessly. Zita helped calm me at the altar as I felt tears coming as we started, and I was able to make it through the rest of the ceremony without a problem.

I woudl highly recommend using Heartfelt Ministries for your ceremony. They will help you make it a special day.

They wrote the whole service, made unique touches about us for the ceremony. One of our guests said that they had never heard of some of the things in our ceremony and that it was very romantic. Kelly and Zita are very laid back and funny.

Heartfelt ministries was very accomodating and created a beatufiul ceremony script. However, I feel that if they got to know us a little better our ceremony it could have been much more personalized. Our photographers were more interested in getting to know us! I was a little upset that all of our guests were left standing during our entire ceremony! I feel they have taken on more than they can handle.

Heartfelt Ministries responded with the following comments:

I am Rev. Zita of Heartfelt Ministries. Nicole, I read your review and I wish to offer you and Josh my personal apologies. Thank you for your honesty and know that your words have been heard and will be taken to heart. I take both great pride and pleasure in being a wedding officiate and to know that one of my couples was disappointed makes myself disappointed.

You wrote that you did not feel a personal connection with us. We try very hard to learn as much as we can about every couple who chooses us, as we also like to feel a sense of connection when we perform a wedding. If we left you feeling we didn’t care, I assure you that was not our intention.

You also stated that your guests were left standing during the wedding service and this upset you. As the minister performing the ceremony, I noticed that they did not resume their seats when you reached the front as is customary, nor when I lowered my hands. Since in some denominations it is common to stand during a short service, I thought that perhaps this was what your family was expecting, and simply thought it better to continue rather than make an issue of it. Obviously that was not the case, and for that I apologize.

I hope, however, that you will not judge Heartfelt Ministries in its entirety by this, as that is not a fair representation of the passion, enthusiasm and dedication our ministers devote to their service. Heartfelt Ministries is truly an amazing organization that strives to always give its best to the people we serve and despite mistakes, I am grateful and honored to be a part of it.

I will take your criticism to heart, and I promise that it will not be forgotten. Your feedback is welcomed and will be used to improve our services in the future. Thank you for letting us know your feelings, and for being a part of your wedding. It was an honor to have met you and your husband. Best of luck now and always,
Rev. Zita Ruediger
