Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Whether you are looking for something short and sweet or a fully customized ceremony, your wedding ceremony should reflect your personal style.

With a customized ceremony, individual beliefs and traditions can be merged into an amazing ceremony. Your love is celebrated in whatever way feels right for you. This is your wedding and you get final approval.

If you're not looking for customization, I can provide you with a standard ceremony that is beautiful and meaningful. It would be my honor to part of your special day.

I am a Wedding Officiant and Interfaith Minister. I worked as an event planner and entrepreneur long before I began performing ceremonies. I've always considered myself spiritual but not religious. I've studied all the major religions and have discovered the beauty in each one of them without belonging to any one in particular. I found that we are far more similar than we are different.

I attended One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York City because I wanted to know more about the ancient wisdom traditions. I had no intention of becoming a minister but I soon realized that I had a love of ceremonies. I graduated and was ordained in June, 2010 and have been performing ceremonies ever since.

My husband Frank is also an Interfaith Minister and is licensed to officiate weddings. If for any reason I was unable to officiate a wedding, Frank is my plan B and would fill in for me. Frank usually drives me to the weddings I perform so that I can arrive calm and focused. He is a wonderful photographer and takes the photos you see on my website.

I would love to speak with you to discuss your upcoming wedding. Our first meeting is free of charge and you are under no obligation to work with me. Please call me today at (201) 230-4485 or email me at revschmieder@gmail.com. I look forward to speaking with you about your very special day. Read less

We chose Christine to officiate our ceremony and couldn't be happier. Christine truly loves love and you can feel that she wants to craft the perfect ceremony for each couple. It was important to us to have a ceremony that was special and not generic, and Christine offered suggestions and worked with us until it was just right. The ceremony truly felt intimate and she did a spectacular job.

Reverend Christine gave us exactly the ceremony we always dreamed we would have. From our first meeting with her, we realized right away that she was the perfect person to preside over our ceremony. We had a level of comfort and chemistry with her that put us at ease immediately. We could tell right away that Christine sincerely wanted the best for us, and would give us genuine support and guidance throughout the whole process. Over the course of the months leading up to the wedding, Christine checked in with us several times, and took it upon herself to coordinate with our venue and wedding band to ensure all of the details were in place for the ceremony. I decided at the last minute, only about a month before the wedding, that I wanted to do a rehearsal the night before the wedding. Even though we didn't give her much advanced notice, Christine was able to come to the rehearsal, helped us lead and organize our large bridal party, and gave us tips and guidance for the ceremony the next day. The highlight of Reverend Christine’s services, of course, was the ceremony itself. Needless to say it was an emotional day for both of us, and during the ceremony she would make eye contact with us and give us both reassuring nods and looks to let us know that we were doing OK. It all happens so quickly and it's very easy to lose yourself in the moment, yet her comforting mannerisms just kept us both grounded and focused on each other. Our entire experience with Reverend Christine was absolute excellence from start to finish. She is sincere and supportive, and performed a heartfelt ceremony for the most special day of our lives.

What an amazing person to work with. My wife and I had a wedding in PA before it was legal and so we decided to have a legal ceremony on the beach with our 4 1/2 ur old son on New Years Eve day. Rev. Christine was so laid back, made us sooo comfortable and just completely helped in every way possible even just to say it will be a perfect and special day. I have it all covered no worries. She is a kind, loving women and she was accepting and made us feel so supported and loved for such a special time.

My ex-wife and I got back together several years ago and talked about marriage over the last year. I proposed at the end of the summer but we really couldn't decide on a date. When we did we realized we wanted our original anniversary date, 12/31. This gave us about a month to figure everything out and try to find an officiant. I started with judges but they weren't working the last week of the year, then moved on to the county clerk, mayor, churches, etc and then started calling officiants I found on line. Most were bad numbers or just not pleasant to speak to and the then I found Rev. Chris. Chris was pleasant, professional and MORE than willing to accommodate our date despite it being new years eve and our time was late in the day. Everything was handled by email ahead of time although she offered more than once to meet in person our schedule didn't allow it. On the day Rev. Chris showed up at the house and performed a wonderful civil ceremony that several of the guest commented on. We were very happy with Rev. Chris and would recommend her to anyone looking for a religious or civil ceremony.
