When I first spoke with Amanda, she told me she was having a hard time finding a Los Angeles offbeat officiant for her and Matt’s Star Wars themed wedding. They wanted something that was truly non-denominational for a ceremony that could both satisfy her traditional family as well as her own nerdy sensibilities.
After Amanda, Matt, and I met, it was clear we spoke each other’s language. And while they are Imperial and I’m Rebel, they decided that I was definitely their Los Angeles offbeat officiant.
As we talked about what was important to them, we really focused on their relationship, which started with a shared love of all things nerdy and cosplay at Comic Con. The fact that they could be themselves together was so important. I wanted to make sure I celebrated that in the words of their ceremony, lending something that was personal and fun to reflect their personalities and life together.
Well, I’ll let Amanda share what her experience was…
I had such a hard time trying to find an officiant for my non-denominational wedding ceremony. I really wanted someone who would make our ceremony fun and unique. As soon as I read that Minister Marie was a bit on the Geeky side like us I knew she would be perfect, and she was! We had a Star Wars theme and as soon as I told her, she was all for it! She gave us some great suggestions and advice and she was so easy and pleasant to work with. She surprised us with a completely personalized introduction about how my husband and I met and it was beautiful and amazing! All my guests told me how amazing the ceremony was and how great our minister was and I couldn’t agree with them more! If you want a personal, fun and unique wedding, Minister Marie is the officiant you want!
As you can see, I had no fun with them and their wedding light sabers.
Absolutely no fun at all.
That’s why there’s a video, evidence of the lack of fun. 😉
