Here’s how it started. My husband and I were married in an elopement ceremony in Columbus, OH in 2015 when I became frustrated as I planned our destination wedding. We canceled our original plans and ran away to get married. We had no guests. It was just us and the officiant. I carried a borrowed bouquet from the venue. We recited our vows and became husband and wife. It was short, sweet, and beautiful. Afterward, I told my husband that our experience was so positive that it inspired me to officiate weddings for others.
Two and-a-half years later, Mid-Ohio Valley Wedding Officiants was born. Currently, I am licensed to officiate weddings in West Virginia and Ohio. Although most of my scheduled weddings are located in or near Parkersburg, WV and Marietta, OH, I also travel several hours to the end of each state to join couples in marriage.
I am available for destination weddings too. Just ask!
I am a former college English and communications/public speaking instructor. I have also been a freelance copywriter, proofreader, and editor for nearly 20 years. I am also a professional photographer. The Mid-Ohio Valley Wedding Officiants wedding chapel is located at 531 Market Street in downtown Parkersburg, WV. I live in Veto, OH with my husband Johnny and my dogs Lana and Winston.
When I am not taking pictures for clients or officiating weddings, you can find me teaching English online to children in China. I am a foreign language teacher in the Chinese school system and a private teacher to students who take lessons from home.
I am ordained as a non-denominational minister through Universal Life Church. I officiate non-religious and non-denominational religious wedding ceremonies.
I offer services ranging from a quick Sign-and-Go to a fully customized ceremony written around your love story.
I support marriage equality. Everyone is welcome.
Id love it if you’d LIKE the Mid-Ohio Valley Wedding Officiants Facebook page for updates and stories of love.
