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 and Marcia were absolutely wonderful! Edwin responded immediately to my request, and was great through the entire process. I was planning a simple ceremony from out-of-state, and I'm so glad I found them, because they made everything easy. He suggested a place, went over how it was going to go, and made sure I was comfortable with everything.

He and Marcia had actually arrived home from a vacation the morning of our wedding, with little to no sleep, and still showed up and did a fantastic job! Things went smoothly and we really enjoyed our service; I had absolutely no stress on my wedding day - it was perfect!

The place where we were married (that Edwin suggested) was Sapphire Point in Breckenridge, CO - beautiful. Marcia took breathtaking photos!! We will be forever grateful to her for capturing so many amazing moments in pictures from before, during, and after the ceremony. I wish I could attach a photo to show off her amazing talent!

Whether you are in Colorado or coming in from out-of-state, check out The Image Maker (Edwin & Marcia) for your officiant & photography needs. We would refer friends to them, and we would also use their services again if we ever do renewals. We are 100% happy with their services & loved our wedding day :)

Edwin was a fantastic officiant! We ended up with very windy and cold conditions on the day of our wedding and he handled everything like a true professional. He read the crowd and decided to shorten the ceremony out of respect for everyone's comfort and it was a great choice, which he discreetly communicated to us to ensure we were in agreement. I was only disappointed that we did not get to experience the full ceremony due to weather, but our guests (and us!) appreciated the concern and attention to our comfort! He produced a really lovely ceremony with many personal touches that we contributed. We received many complements from our guests about his performance and the content of the ceremony. I would highly recommend Edwin!

We used Edwin for our officiant, and Marcia for our photography, for our wedding on June 15th. We knew as soon as we met with them last October that they were perfect for us! Edwin brings so much personality to the ceremony, he engages the guests, it was not just a repeat-after-me ceremony - it was an event! He creates a keepsake booklet for you with the ceremony poems and vows, he includes letters the bride and groom write to each other to be read during the ceremony, he is just wonderful. We had so many of our guests and even other vendors comment on how wonderful he was, he was funny and warm and it was just an amazing experience. If you want more than just a dry, regular ceremony, I could not recommend him any more highly. We also used his wife Marcia as our photographer, and she was great! They work so well as a team, she knows exactly how he does the ceremony so she knows where to be for great pictures, she did an amazing job. She knows how to control the crowd so she can get the best pictures without making everyone stand around forever. I also appreciated that during the reception, she took time to take pictures of the guests with their families - because our wedding fell on Father's Day, we asked that if there was time, if she could get family pictures of our guests so that they could each have a nice family picture with everyone dressed up! She was perfect - she made sure that she captured our wedding party and family pictures first, and used the reception time to capture the other families. At the end of our reception, we went with her to a nearby location to take some of just the bride and groom. She was just perfect. She worked extremely hard to have our pictures ready for us quickly - only about a week!! They turned out amazing - I could not be more happy with her work! They are very reasonably priced, and you could not be disappointed if you use them for your wedding!

It was such a pleasure having Edwin as our officiant! We knew we wanted a non-denominational wedding ceremony and were pretty nervous about finding someone who would could not only perform the ceremony but someone who would make it unique and special. Edwin was extremely professional, detailed oriented and flexible. He was great at providing us with suggestions and making sure we were comfortable with the decisions. We personally felt he went above and beyond his duties.

We received numerous comments about how beautiful and different the ceremony was. We also had many friends and family tell us how much they enjoyed getting to know Edwin during our cocktail hour. I think his interesting background, cool calm nature and humor won them over.

If you are on the search for an awesome officiant, I highly recommend working with Edwin.

I highly recommend Edwin as an officiant. Not only was he the only recommended officiant that the Silverthorne Pavilion recommended, but after doing my research, he was truly the best option, knew what he was doing, was experienced and a great value. I put our wedding together pretty much on my own, and I had a lot of details to worry about, but not the ceremony! I trusted Edwin to tell us what to do and say, and he did so perfectly. We've all seen things that could be done better in other weddings, but he made sure we were facing the audience, and he got everyone involved in the ceremony, all the parents, etc., and he managed to be thoughtful but humorous at the same time. I would highly recommend Edwin to anyone getting married in Colorado!
