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

As my new bride and myself are both professional service providers, and we felt outstanding value, understanding and empathy, and very easy to work with. Her beautiful presence was felt by not only us but our families on this outstanding day. She was a big part of the service and ironically knew her through other professionals who reinforced what we feel on initial meeting together.

The ceremony that Rev. Christine put together for our same sex marriage was perfect ! We had a number of our guests comment that it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they had ever seen. Touching, classy and inclusive; it was exactly what my husband and I had hoped. Christine was a joy to work with, very warm and inviting and interested in capturing our personalities within the ceremony. We couldn't be happier with Rev. Christine and strongly recommend her to anyone getting married.

Rev. Chris did a FANTASTIC job for our wedding! Our guests have told us how much they loved our ceremony. Rev. Chris helped us create vows that incorporated my young daughter so that our marriage was not just us becoming Husband and Wife, but the creation of a new family. It was emotional, moving and memorable. Rev. Chris conveys a sweetness and generosity of heart--you and your guests can feel it. She can help you make your ceremony personalized. I highly recommend her!

Christine was wonderful! We were outside and it was lousy weather, but you never would have known. She kept smiling and regardless of the rain, she made Greg and I feel like we were the most important people in the world for that time. Absolutely loved her.

Rev. Christine Schmieder was excellent during our wedding at Smithville Inn. We have extremely busy lives and she was extremely flexible meeting us several times later in the evening via Face time as we requested. We had many questions and "needs" that she walked us through to make us feel comfortable. Her kind demeanor and how she guided us through the process is what made us choose her to conduct our ceremony.

We had several comments on how well the ceremony took place which I give Rev. Schmieder the credit. I would recommend to anyone looking for someone to conduct their wedding ceremony. You can't go wrong.

We absolutely loved Christine! As soon as I contacted her, I knew she was going to be the perfect fit for our ceremony. She was so quick to respond to my email and was always available to speak whenever needed from that point forward. We had some special things we wanted to include, and also wanted a short and sweet ceremony. She had no problem with meeting all of our needs! Christine was so sweet and soft spoken. You can tell how much she cares about her job and just how excited she is to be apart of your big day. I was very nervous about the ceremony and she had a way of making me feel so much more comfortable, she even met with us again right before the wedding to go over everything one final time. I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks again Christine!!
