Yup, I'm a Minister too!

In addition to all the various hats on my head, I'm also an Ordained Minster.

Are you looking for a minister to officiate your wedding, handfasting, or vow renewal ceremony? I am an ordained minister and able to provide a wide variety of services for all kinds of couples. Furthermore, I happily offer my services to the LGBTQ2+ community as well. Every package includes a free journal for your vows (can also be used as your guest signing book, keep track of gifts received, notes, your anniversary diary, etc), and a completely customizable ceremony of your choosing. Please contact me if you are interested in discussing further details. Let's have some fun!

I am so glad I found Nikki. We met up about 2 weeks before the wedding, and she gave me some scripts to go through, she even allowed me to pick out my own journal and she wrote everything she said at the wedding in the journal. She was very understanding and very patient with me the day of the wedding as I couldn't find the rings and she had something to do after she married us and she still stayed and took her time with us. Very amazing person.

If you’re looking for someone who’s easy to work with and exudes positivity look no further. Weddings are always stressful and Nikki was nothing but helpful with officiating our wedding. She made everything quick and painless! 10/10 would recommend!
