Member Profile - Married by Mandi

Let Rev. Mandi create a wedding ceremony so meaningful and personal, your guests will be raving about it for years!
I  help anxious and excited couples bring their ideas and hopes of a beautiful and personalized ceremony to life! Within minutes of coming together, I can ease their mind by guiding them through the process of creating an inspiring and moving ceremony experience.  What makes me different from other wedding ministers and officiants, is my interest in getting to know each couple on an intimate and authentic level so I can present a truly passionate and heartfelt ceremony. 
Besides meeting with them in person, I provide them with a meaningful and detailed questionnaire that when completed, captures the essence of their relationship from the perspective of someone on the outside looking in.
