This is your wedding!

If you and your future bride or groom are making plans for that special day and would like a wedding ceremony that will best express your feelings of love for one another, please contact me via telephone or email to set up a free consultation.

As a receipt for booking a date, couples choosing the Standard or Gold Wedding Package receive my “Wedding Packet”, which includes a Wedding Agreement, my “Processional, Ceremony and Recessional Staging worksheet (seating, entrance, exit, who stand where, etc.), “The Wedding Party” worksheet (listing duties for each member of the wedding party) and over 50 pages of sample ceremony parts.

Your wedding day is a celebration of your love and deep commitment to each other. I do everything possible to ensure your personal wishes are respected and celebrated.

E-mail me at rhyttinen@wisconsinvows.com to see if your wedding date is open on my calendar and to set up an initial free consultation. I will ask a few questions and if you live in the area, I will arrange a meeting with you at a nearby location if the date and time is still open. At this meeting, we will discuss your ceremony and begin the process of customizing the ritual to fit your unique needs. I want to get to know you – how you met, what your needs and wishes are, who your friends and family are – anything that can help me begin to plan your special day.

During this time, we will work together to create the ceremony that reflects the sentiments you both share for each other. I will be there through all stages of your ceremony – beginning, during and ending and will provide my guidance, time and energy for as long as you wish me to be of service. As your wedding officiant, I will work hard to ensure that your personalized ceremony will always be a treasured memory for you, your friends and your family.
