About me, Officiant Amber
Updated: Feb 18
A bit about me......
With more than 4 years of experience, more than 145 5-star reviews on WeddingWire, Yelp, Google and Facebook and more than 200 weddings under my belt, you can be assured that your ceremony will be exactly the way you envision it with Officiant Amber.
My Inspiration The inspiration wheel for Officiant Amber began one summer evening, as I sat around drinking coffee and snacking on wedding cupcakes with my mom and aunt after an eventful day as a guest at my brother’s wedding.
We were chatting about the ceremony, and the officiant came up in conversation. My mom made the comment that I would be “perfect” for the job because of my extroverted personality and my ability to find a connection with most everyone I pull into a conversation. That night, a lightbulb lit up inside of my head, and I began doing research on becoming ordained and learning the ins and outs of officiating weddings.
In my research, I fell more and more in love with the idea of officiating weddings. Not only would I get to meet lots of interesting couples with unique and fun love stories, but would also get to help couples create personalized ceremony scripts that really tell guests about THEM as a couple; their history, their love story.
I’m a fast reader, so within a few days, I had read numerous books, blogs and articles about the topic, and began promoting my services to the local community.
Officiant Amber began over a cup of coffee at my parent’s house in South Dakota, and continues to grow and thrive over cups of coffee throughout eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota, as I conduct sit down consultations with amazing, beautiful couples as I help them voice their love story to their friends and family.
What sets me apart? Officiant Amber specializes in non-denominational, personalized wedding ceremonies in Grand Forks, Fargo/Moorhead, and beyond.
Planning a wedding can be stressful. I can help walk couples through every step of the ceremony. I enjoy creating a meaningful, memorable ceremony almost as much as I love being a calm, grounding presence for couples on their big day.
I honor and respect all beliefs and traditions — religious, spiritual, secular or same sex. Because I feel that each couple deserves a wedding that is special to them as a couple, I put a lot of time, energy, and heart into creating and officiating each ceremony.
To tell you a bit about myself, I am a former TV news reporter and radio DJ, so public speaking and networking with a variety of people (even those I’ve just met) comes naturally to me. I enjoy the hope, love and romantic nature surrounding weddings, so I feel as though officiating weddings is a perfect fit for me. I enjoy getting to know a couple, then helping their wedding ceremony dreams come to fruition. I, myself, have been happily married for ten years, and wrote our ceremony and my vows.
My Big Plans My goal for Officiant Amber is to position my business as a leader in the local wedding industry.
My plans to accomplish this include attending numerous networking events with like-minded wedding professionals and vendors, participating in both large and small bridal shows and continuing to provide a top-notch service for my clients to gain referrals from friends and family members.
