Our Wedding Ceremonies are as unique as the bride and groom. They can be traditional or progressive - where couples choose a ceremony depicting their unique personalities and lifestyles. Ceremonies can also be civil and/or spiritual.

Our ceremonies can be:
Traditional: The traditional wedding usually takes place in a church or temple.
Unique: In a unique wedding the couple prefer to make a statement. They want their wedding to portray the characteristics of their personalities.
Contemporary: Some couples prefer having a wedding that is more personal but not extreme. Weddings in a favorite place add a contemporary flair without shocking your guests. These locations can be in nature or even at a museum.
Passive: Not every bride likes to be the center of attention, even for her own wedding ceremony. Many couples have private ceremonies and celebrate with their friends and family at the reception.
Civil: A civil wedding ceremony generally does not include a spiritual or religous element.
We enjoy creating a ceremony with couples and wedding planners that expresses the commitment of the bride and groom to each other and their partnership in marriage.
Couples receive a copy of 'Your Complete Wedding Ceremony eBook' to help create the wedding ceremony of their dreams. Read less

Kate Gregory was our Officiant for our September wedding and she was an absolute joy to work with!! The number of compliments received from guests was truly remarkable. From the beginning, we knew Kate was the perfect fit for what we were trying to accomplish. Not only did she get to know us as a couple, she came prepared with ideas/suggestions as well as a solid outline of next steps in the process. As we worked through planning out the ceremony, step-by-step, Kate always made herself available and was extremely timely in her responses. Kate was a calming influence throughout and really helped make our wedding ceremony a special event. We can't thank Kate enough for all the time and effort she put forth and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thanks Kate!!!

Wow, where to begin. Jill was amazing from day one. We met and she went over everything, but didn't overwhelm us. She answered our questions and I knew we were in good hands. When the day came Jill was on time and very professional. The ceremony was absolutley what we wanted in every aspect. After the wedding my parents told us how much they love Jill and that she did a phenomenal job. They also mentioned how many people came up to them and said the same. You can't go wrong choosing Jill.

Jill Englund from Minnesota Officiants is fabulous. Her frequent and thorough communication with us prior to our wedding day was very much appreciated. She also provided us with a lot of helpful resources and her own helpful ideas on how to make our ceremony just right. She was a calming, kind presence on the day of our wedding and we really were glad we chose her.

We chose Jill to officiate our wedding ceremony, and would've been happy with anyone from Minnesota Officiants. However, we knew Jill was the one right after meeting her. It felt like we had known her forever! She is a very fun and inviting person; we met in a coffee shop and talked for hours because we were getting along so well. She helped us feel ready for the ceremony without even having a rehearsal. She put together an outline which was very helpful since we had no clue how to do it. She was happy to incorporate any changes we made and come up with suggestions as well. It was a great experience all around, and we received many compliments!

CARA TOLLEFSON. My husband and I were looking for a non-traditional wedding officiant, someone who would help us do OUR wedding, OUR way. We came across Minnesota Wedding Officiants and after reading all the profiles, felt that Cara Tollefson was just what we were looking for. Cara was great from the first email. We live out of state but Cara made herself readily available via email and phone calls. She made the whole process run smoothly, providing us as much or little guidance as we wanted. Choosing to participate in the "Love Story" was the best decision we made. Cara nailed it! People at our wedding thought she was a close friend or family member based on the way it added such a personal touch. On the actual wedding day, Cara helped calm any nerves and made the day so much fun! She took a genuine interest in us as a couple and radiated a loving, but not cheesy emotion during the ceremony. We could not have been any happier with the whole process and final outcome. Thank you Cara for making our wedding an event to cherish and remember for all the years to come. You have a true gift!

My husband and I could not be more thrilled with our experience with Jill Englund as our wedding officiant. She was professional and thorough while still being warm, caring and personable. She tailored the entire wedding process to reflect both our personalities and our wishes to the type of ceremony that we wanted. She was truly a wise guide throughout the entire process. I never once felt any concern about the actual wedding ceremony because I knew that she had everything well in hand. When planning a wedding, peace of mind is welcome relief and I recommend her highly.

I had never been to a wedding before when I started planning my own so I didn't have many reference points other than what I'd seen on television or heard from my family. I knew that if we chose a traditional church wedding we would be married by the priest or minister at that church. However, when my husband and I selected an outdoor venue for our wedding ceremony and reception, I knew I'd have to find someone to officiate the ceremony. I had no idea where to begin but after some hunting, I came across Minnesota Officiants. After reading the reviews on their website, I felt like I was really headed in the right direction. I sent out an e-mail for more information and I was promptly able to set up a meeting with one of the officiants, Allan Lindgren. I was initially anxious about meeting because I didn't know what to expect or what questions to ask. I ended up meeting Allan for coffee and quickly felt relaxed and at ease as he explained his background, what he could offer, and assured me that my ceremony could be whatever I wanted it to be. He provided me with a wedding ceremony e-book with loads of different vows, readings, and ceremony outlines to help me plan my own ceremony. I liked that the meeting was informative and professional but at the same time laid-back. You could tell that he really enjoys what he does and takes his craft seriously. From our first meeting to the day of the wedding, Allan has been there to answer all my questions, address my concerns, and to help me create the perfect wedding ceremony. He made our day special and made us feel at ease. I couldn't have asked for a better person to officiate my wedding.

Jill was wonderful to have as our wedding officiant. She helped guide us in planning our ceremony, but let us put our own personal twist on it. She did a great job of telling us what works well and what doesn't work well, as opposed to not providing an opinion at all. However, even if we disagreed with a suggestion, she was more than happy to accommodate what we wanted. Jill is extremely warm and caring. She put us totally at ease for the wedding and made the ceremony our favorite part of the day.
