Edwin Ward, Minister, has been officiating at Marriage Ceremonies since 1982. Edwin usually meets with couples at his office in Denver (if possible; otherwise details can be worked out over the phone.) In the meeting or phone conversation Edwin will discuss every aspect of the ceremony and then create a customized ceremony tailored to the desires of the bride and groom. Edwin also publishes the ceremony as a one of a kind book, a keepsake for the bride and groom. And, of course, Edwin will officiate at he ceremony. For this service Edwin charges $300. A rehearsal (which is optional) is $100. Travel fees apply only when location is well outside the Denver area (more than 60 miles one way). Simple Ceremonies can be conducted in the ImageMaker office gallery or in Edwin and Marcia's beautiful backyard.

In addition to being an Ordained Minister, Edwin is also a professional dramatist, actor, master of ceremonies, and artist; and Edwin brings all these talents to weddings he officiates. A testament to Ed's experience: in 2009 Edwin personally officiated at 72 weddings.

In addition to Edwin's services, the Image Maker also offers the services of his wife, Marcia Ward. Marcia has been photographing weddings professionally since 1988 and her rates are very reasonable. Marcia offers a complete line of photography services - DVDs, Prints, Photo Books, Photos Posted On-Line, In-Studio Engagement Photos, Archival Wall prints, and more. Marcia generally creates customized packages and will work with a couple's budget. Sample wedding photography packages include Two Hours (Ceremony & Formals) $600 - Three Hours (Ceremony, Formals & Reception $900) - and couples receive their wedding photos on DVD and a letter granting full usage rights.

When couples book with both Marcia and Edwin, a ten percent discount is offered on both of their services.

Edwin was, hands down, the best officiant that we could have picked for our wedding. I'm still in shock about how easy planning everything was. Not only is Edwin a captivating performer (trust me, it really does come in handy for a wedding ceremony) but he's a true professional. We met with him to discuss the ceremony, and he had tons of ideas for us to choose from. We knew ZERO about the intricacies of wedding ceremonies, and Edwin had suggestions that really spoke to us. He takes the ceremony so seriously, which is so refreshing in a wedding world where everyone seems to only care about the reception.

Our guests raved about the ceremony, and they loved that it was entertaining, captivating, and that they felt like an important part of the day (because they are!) Our ceremony was absolutely perfect.

Edwin (owner/officiant) does all he can to make your ceremony special and add little things to personalize it for you. He does everything he can to make it perfect and exactly what you've been dreaming of. His assistant James actually performed our wedding and did a fabulous job. He kept it moving and was very professional. For the short time I got to meet him, he was ready to go and sincerely happy for us. Wonderful job!

I am so happy we hired Ed to perform our ceremony. He was so personable and funny, which is exactly what we were looking for. We didn't want anything too stuffy or religious and he nailed it on the head! All of our guests said they had so much fun and had never been to a ceremony so great and entertaining. Ed really makes your guests feel like they are apart of the ceremony. You will not be disappointed if you hire Ed!

Edwin and Marsha were great to work with. I was looking for a officiant fairly last minute and Edwin was booked, but he said he would write the ceremony and his wife Marsha could be the officiant the day of the wedding. They were always very timely and professional.

Edwin and Marcia are an awesome team.
- Responsible, professional, punctual and very flexible and understanding.

My wedding day began horribly bad when I arrived to the church and everyone was outside because the owners of the church had "FORGOTTEN" to open it for us. But Edwin was more than flexible and understanding when he pulled forces together between everyone to make my moment as special, having the ceremony at the gardens of the church. After all the craziness I encountered, having Edwin as my wedding officiant was a peace of mind.
Everyone loved the ceremony!

And Marcia was ABSOLUTELY delightful to work with. She not only stayed there by my side, but tried to make me smile every time a tear came out. My husband and I loved the pictures. Marcia gets an A+++ in professionalism from us.

You CAN NOT go wrong with this team. Whether you only need an officiant, a photographer or both, Edwin and Marcia will make your day wonderful.

Edwin was the best officiant we could have asked for. We wanted a spiritual ceremony with several beautiful readings, and he made that come true for us. Both sides of the family commented later on how beautiful the ceremony was, and several people said they were brought to tears with some of his readings. I found him to be a genuinely kind-hearted person and he seems to love what he does. We couldn't have been happier having him be part of our big day.

He is an amazing officiant. We loved every part of it, and our guests loved him also. My niece and nephew both want him as their officiant when they get married. He involved our guests and made our wedding very very memorable. Our wedding would not been as amazing as it was with out him... Everyone should use him as their officiant you will not be disappointed at all. Wish I could do it all over again just to have him perform it again and again. I can not thank him enough for such an amazing ceremony.

Marcia performed our wedding ceremony in Silverthorne, CO and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend her services. We initially met with Marcia not having much of an idea of what we wanted to happen that day. She took the time to suggest a flow and read/explain each piece and let us decide if we wanted it to be a part of the ceremony (or incorporate items we wanted). She was very responsive when I sent her questions or changes via email. She met with us again via phone about 6 weeks before our big day once again to confirm each part. During that actual ceremony, her tone was very sincere, lighthearted, and made us feel like we were the only couple to ever get married! Wonderful job, thank you!

Edwin is a wonderful officiant. He is perfect if you want something non-traditional, yet still intimate and meaningful. He has many ideas/options he's used at other ceremonies as he is very experienced. He's also open to do unique portions of the ceremony. However, we mostly took advantage of his vast knowledge of other traditions/poetry to use in a secular ceremony. He was very comforting to talk to leading up to the ceremony as he specializes in destination, non-traditional, and non-rehearsed-type ceremonies.

I spoke to him at length on the phone to decide what the ceremony would be like. He then sent me a detailed outline (almost script) for the ceremony, which was very helpful since we could not access the venue for a rehearsal. He also made a ceremony booklet that contained our love letters to one-another. We had the guests write us notes inside of it, and it will be a wonderful keepsake. He was very responsive leading up to the day-of by keeping in contact and going over everything about a month before the date.

We did the water ceremony, the rope tying ceremony, the love letters, and personal vows. It took about a half hour, which was a perfect length for us.

He was very organized and helpful the day-of as well. He spoke to everyone in the ceremony specifically to give them guidance, and it worked out great. He even had the groomsmen spin the bridesmaids into place to add a little flair. It was a wonderful ceremony. I will remember it always. He did a great job helping everyone relax and enjoy the ceremony, and his poetry readings were wonderful.

I would recommend Minister Edwin Ward to anyone planning a destination wedding or anyone who wants a non-traditional yet no less meaningful ceremony.
