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 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.

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!

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!

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!

I can't say enough positive things about The Image Maker! They truly made our wedding a unique ceremony with many special touches. Both Edwin and Marcia were extremely easy to get a hold of and talk with as we were planning our event and were extremely understanding when a medical emergency led us to put our wedding planning 'on hold' temporarily. As we continued with planning, they continued to be some of the friendliest and knowledgeable vendors that we worked with.

Marcia from The Image Maker was the officiant for our ceremony and she did an amazing job. The actual ceremony was a true performance on her part and a number of our guests told us how fun and interesting she had made the ceremony; we were happy to include some unique components to the ceremony that were the idea of the Image Maker. Marcia also went above and beyond to help us pull off the ceremony: talking with construction workers (yeah, the venue decided to repave their parking lots during our ceremony!!!), ensuring the appearance of the ceremony chairs/guitars, getting ice for our water ceremony, and even offering me the use of her lipstick after I ruined mine chugging water before the wedding (it was 95 degrees and we were outside). All in all, we couldn't have been happier with Marcia as our officiant and are so glad we went with her. So many guests commented on how great she was as well!

Edwin is a master at performing his services. He won us over with his vision of the ceremony, and organization. He kept us updated through out the process and was very responsive with any changes that we requested. The outline that he provided was in great detail. Edwin then greatly exceeded our expectations during the ceremony, as it was even more beautiful and organized than we could have hoped, even through having to move from outdoors to indoors in the middle of the ceremony, as the rain didn't hold off as we had hoped, without missing a beat. Edwin is great at giving each person the little cues that are needed through out. His ceremony and rituals were amazing and we got so many compliments from all of our guests on the job that he did. We highly recommend Edwin.

When I saw all the reviews of how great Edwin is, I was a little skeptical that an officiant could be that great. Boy was I surprised! He provides high quality service! He was very organized from day one and he followed up with all the details a couple of weeks before the wedding just to make sure everything was in order. In fact, he actually reminded me to apply for the marriage license as we had gotten so wrapped up in all the other details that we forgot to apply for it.

The day of the wedding everything turned out great! We didn't have a rehearsal as we weren't really having any bridesmaids or groomsman and Edwin took it upon himself to make sure that the few people that were helping here and there during the ceremony knew what their responsibilities were and what they had to do before hand.

After the ceremony, we had various guest come up to us and comment on how much they loved the ceremony and how beautiful it was. The ceremony was very memorable and everyone loved it! It has been a month since the wedding and people are still commenting on how great it was.

I would highly recommend Edwin to any bride that is looking for a great officiant that provides quality service that people will love and enjoy.

Edwin was fabulous! He really made our ceremony so special and the best part about him is that he is extremely animated and really captures your guests attention. He also had so many original ideas that made our ceremony unique and different than any ceremony I have seen.

You can not find a better man to conduct the ceremony of your wedding! Edwin is everything you want in someone who will be marrying you. He is funny, personal, emotional, has amazing prayers, and captivates his audience. Being the groom in the wedding, I was so captivated by his presence, I listened to every word he said. He has great ideas that will personally fit the feel of the wedding you wish to conduct. He even pushed my wife and I to write "love letters" (we said them to each other at the ceremony), which at first we were a little hesitant to do, but after the fact, it was an amazing touch to an amazing wedding. Thank you again Edwin!!!

We worked with Ed to create a beautiful ceremony that was actually memorable! The ceremony reflected both of our personalities and was enjoyable to us and our guests too. After two months guests still talk about it. It was personal, humorous, beautiful and most importantly different from the standard wedding. We could not have asked for better! We would definitely recommend Ed! Thank you!

We are so lucky we found Edwin to officiate our wedding. Not only was he amazing at officiating a meaningful and unique ceremony, but he facilitated communication from the very beginning of the process and made sure everything was clear for both of us. He is a talented public speaker, and also a good listener able to transform the couple's views into a memorable ceremony for everyone in attendance.

The Image Maker was an awesome officiant/photography team for my wedding! They kept in touch through emails before my wedding, they reserved my wedding date on their calendar, and they reviewed over what would happen at the wedding to prepare us. The officiant was very profession and friendly to the entire family. The photographer was very professional and came up with interesting and fun poses for us to do as a family and as a couple. She sure knew what she was doing and she did it in a very caring and professional manner. She also kept in touch through email and answered all of my questions. She remembered what poses I wanted and made sure they were all done on the wedding day. I even got my wedding cd returned in a very quick manner and the photos came out wonderful! I plan on having this same photographer do a future shoot with me and my husband and our dogs. The Image Maker are a wonderful team to have for a wedding, I highly recommend them to everyone! They did an awesome job with our wedding and I will always be truly thankful that I found them!-Kim and Andrew.

Edwin was wonderful! He performed such a beautiful ceremony for our special day :). I had so many comments after the wedding about how fun and unique our ceremony was. What was so nice is that we could design it for us, it was not just the standard stuff they normally throw into the ceremony. Another very nice thing is that he put together a book of the prayers, poems, and our letters to each other that we get to keep forever so we can always remember those special moments. He was always very prompt, professional, fun to work with, and made the day run SO smooth. I would highly recommend him to anyone :)

I am so glad that Edwin and Marcia did our wedding.

The day we first met with Edwin, Monica and I hadn't even decided on where to get married. Our wedding was on a budget and Edwin suggested what turned out to a perfect place. Edwin did a wonderful job as officiant and did a lot to ease both of our stress levels that day. Thank you Edwin

Marcia's pictures were better than expected. What a great team they make!

During our first meeting with Edwin he was funny, unique, kind and an absolute professional. I liked him right away and was comforted by the fact that he quite obviously knew what he was doing. It was an easy decision to move forward with booking his services. I'm not sure that I can convey with words how much I am thankful for that decision now. Edwin arrived early to chat with our guests and make sure everyone involved in the ceremony knew where they needed to be and what they should be doing. He encouraged appropriate humor and gentle moments. When our musicians didn't show Edwin and my Uncle pulled all the guests together and everyone hummed the wedding march as I walked down the aisle! What could of been an upset is now my favorite story to tell. Just like Edwin our ceremony was funny, unique, and kind. Our families still talk about how much they enjoyed him and I couldn't agree more!

Ed was an outstanding officiant at our wedding. He delivered a Five-star performance! Ed had excellent, creative ideas to show our love and commitment to each other as we stood in front of our friends and family. His delivery was enthusiastic and energizing and he did an awesome job of keeping the focus on us. Ed has theatre background and he knows how to speak in a way that the crowd will enjoy. And he was so delightfully interactive with our guests before and after the ceremony. We had many people tell us afterwards how fantastic the ceremony was, and wanted to know how we found Ed. We met with 3 officiants that we found on-line before finding Ed and we chose him immediately after our first meeting. Hands down Ed will deliver a fantastic wedding ceremony if you choose him!

Edwin was the officiant for my wedding, and i was very very satisfied and impressed. He did a fantastic job customizing the ceremony to all the ideas that myself and my wife had come up with. He was very courteous and professional and made us feel very at ease the whole time. We didn't want a ceremony that referenced "god" or "religion", so he chose a few prayers and blessings that fit the mood perfectly -- Apache and Cherokee wedding prayers, along with his readings of a few poems as well. He always had the crowd engaged in the ceremony, so much so that several people came up to me afterwards and said that was the most entertaining wedding ceremony they had ever seen, and that it was genuinely fun and they felt like they were a part of something, instead of mearely watching something take place. Edwin's ideas for some non-traditional events during the ceremony (hand binding, the fillilng of water glasses) was really cool and i thought everything fit together seamlessly. I honestly had no idea what to expect, but he exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for a wedding officiant, then you should pick Edwin, he did a fantastic job and he truly helped make our wedding the best day of our lives!

He customized his ceremony for our needs and was very professional and personable about it. He was able to captivate the guests and entertain while still taking care of business without being wordy and boring. I'm more than happy I found him and would recommend him to other couples without hesitation.

We had chosen to have a ceremony outdoors with very little religion (only one prayer) but our very catholic families didn’t seem to even notice.
We would highly recommend Ed to any couple!

My husband and I "found" Ed on line, as we searched for officiants for our wedding. What a wonderful "find." He actually called us instead of responding to our initial email request. That spoke volumns. The interaction we had with Ed as we prepared for our big day was such a pleasant experience. We so enjoyed working with him. After our wedding, we heard nothing but great responses from our family and guests as to Ed. The sand ceremony Ed performed during our service was so touching, and the guests were very impressed. One of our guests had gone to another wedding Ed performed and said he was just as wonderful. Highly recommend.

My husband and I "found" Ed on line, as we searched for officiants for our wedding. What a wonderful "find." He actually called us instead of responding to our initial email request. That spoke volumns. The interaction we had with Ed as we prepared for our big day was such a pleasant experience. We so enjoyed working with him. After our wedding, we heard nothing but great responses from our family and guests as to Ed. The sand ceremony Ed performed during our service was so touching, and the guests were very impressed. One of our guests had gone to another wedding Ed performed and said he was just as wonderful. Highly recommend.

Working with Edwin (Ed) was absolutely wonderful. We were looking for someone to officiate our wedding (somewhat at the last minute), and when we stumbled upon his website, we scheduled a consultation for the next weekend. My husband and I met with him and were immediately comfortable. Weddings are so stressful, but he had us laughing and visualizing the ceremony within minutes. We knew immediately that we had found our officiant.

When the week of our wedding approached, Ed checked in with us to confirm that our time/date was still on track. He took care of little details with my dad and brother, and was very charming as our guests started to arrive. He has a calming nature, which is very appreciated in the hectic moments before the ceremony starts. We opted to do a few things during the ceremony to create more intimacy - he read a few poems, did a hand ceremony, and a water glass feature that was very touching.

After the ceremony, and in the weeks/months to follow, one thing continuously came up from our guests - how much they LOVED our officiant Ed. I am so grateful that we met him, and if I had the chance to talk with someone that was considering him as an officiant, I would tell you that Ed is one of the most genuine, thoughtful people I have ever had the pleasure of working with; he does what he says he's going to do, and he does it really well.

Edwin was wonderful. He was professional and sweet. He was entertaining and full of ideas. I loved working with him and his sweet wife. They drove miles for my wedding and didn't even charge extra. I had the best breathtaking wedding of my dreams. I love that he gives his brides a book of the ceremony and a special picture for the cover.

Ed spoke to "us",as well as,to "our guests" during the Ceremony,... we really apreciated that part of his service. So often,more than not,when people preside over weddings and such, it seems as though they don't address the audience with conviction,not so with Ed.His part of our Ceremony was humorus and moving. I'm sure that every couple,and or family,wants to have some say in what is said during the Ceremony. Ed was attentive and provided welcomed additions to our "wonderfull" day. We truly enjoyed Ed, we're sure you will too.

The wedding party and guests all loved him. Marcia's photos were incredible; unique, creative and yet still had a classic feel. She was never intrusive yet got so many amazing shots. They made our day so special I cannot speak highly enough of their professionalism, style, and great attitude. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Her messages during the ceremony were unique and just what we had wanted. I don't have any criticism to give, I thought she did a great job. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.

My husband and I used Ed as our wedding officiant for our wedding last December. We did a destination wedding to Colorado so knew no one in the area. We were having a traditional ceremony and wanted to be married by a male ordained minister. We contacted Ed one week before our wedding and he was able to work with us! He drove to Breckenridge from Denver, arriving very early to accommodate for any weather delays that time of year. He was extremely pleasant, very friendly with family and guests. We got so many compliment on our ceremony, which was traditional and unique. It involved the guests in a way we've never seen done before, and everyone loved it! Ed has great suggestions, but definitely makes sure you know the ceremony is all about you and what you want- super flexible. He also provided a book with our ceremony and vows transcribed it in. Ed was one of the few vendors I used for the wedding that was absolutely outstanding.

The wedding was my granddaughter's. Edwin stepped in at the last minute when our original officiate dropped out, and frankly, we were very happy with the change! Edwin provided a more personal touch than we would have had - had the original officiate conducted the ceremony, including providing poetry he had written for his wife. The ceremony was warm and cordial and everyone in the wedding party, as well as the invited guests, commented on how lovely and unique it was.

Edwin Ward officiated our wedding in April, 2009. We were looking for something "spiritual" but not religious. Edwin offered a variety of options, including some poetry, Irish blessing, and others that did not involve Biblical scripture or prayer. He was very professional and we had many guests that told us they enjoyed our ceremony and how it seemed relaxed and friendly. It was just what we wanted. Both my grandfather and great uncle, in their 80s, expressed to me that it was the nicest wedding ceremony they had attended.

He incorporated all of our quests in the ceremony so they felt included instead of just on lookers.

Ed was very professional and willing to do what it takes. We didn't have much planned for activities leading up to the actual vows (e.g. poetry readings, etc), and he happily filled in with some of his own works of poetry.

Ed was a little outstanding for an officiant for my taste, as I think that role is one of subtleties, but we were pleased anyhow as Ed performed our service full-heartedly and made the coordination efforts very smooth.

Edwin would be a great choice for an officiant for your wedding. He provides lots of ideas if you're not sure what you want out of your wedding ceremony, but he is also very flexible if you have any particular desires. At the last minute we changed our rehearsal day/time, and he was very accommodating. We also received lots of compliments after the ceremony. Edwin is animated, entertaining and particularly well-spoken; all things your guests will appreciate.

Edwin truly helped make our day very special. He really cares about each one of his ceremonies and about making moments that count. He makes a book out of your ceremony for a keepsake which is what really got us. The one downside was he was a little hard to work with about how we wanted our ceremony to be, not how he has done it hundreds of times because he has the experience. He in the end let us do what we want but it was very tough to get him to accept it but he did eventually. Overall a good experience.

The only reason this wasnt a 5/5 is because they never told us they dont do a rehearsal. So a couple weeks before the wedding I asked if he could come do a rehearsal and he said it would be $200 more! I was floored! He said most officants dont do rehearsals anymore....anyway he was awesome and it was a beautiful ceremony!

the Image Maker responded with the following comments:

I charge $100 for a rehearsal. Additionally, the rehearsal the day before would have involved 4.5 hours of travel and over 150 miles. I am happy to do rehearsals but there is a fee for another day (5 hours) of my life. The website where this bride found me states clearly that rehearsals are extra. My website states this as well. Also, in early negotiations there was no mention of a rehearsal and my normal/regular fee was discounted by $50. Still, the wedding ceremony was world class.
