Hello!  Welcome to Marcy Ann's 
Wedding Minister Business Training!

Click here for Marcy Ann's Biography

I can tell you, I am totally and completely happy as a Wedding Minister.  I love my job! I am my own boss, I work as much or as little as I want to, and everyone is always SO HAPPY! I own my own business helping a first-time bride experience all of her hopes and dreams for her Wedding Day. (Grooms just say, "what ever you want, honey!")  Second weddings are a wonderful time to help people deepen their understanding of love and marriage. You can also offer Vow Renewals, Wedding Anniversary Celebrations, House Blessing, and  I also do Baby Blessings.  You can also do Funerals and Memorial Services.I will provide you with all of the special ceremonies and blessings. 

I can guarantee you, that no matter where you are in the United States, you Start my own businesscan be a successful Ordained Wedding Minister. Every single wedding needs an Wedding Minister! Many people belong to a church and have a pastor.  However, more and more, couples are looking for an independent Officiant who represents the State and can provide a non-denominational but spiritual   wedding ceremony that celebrates love, trust, respect, fidelity, honesty and family and is not legalistic, religious or long, dull and boring!  A divorced Catholic cannot be married in the Church. A Jew who marries a Protestant needs an independent professional Officiant.   Also, here in California, the Hindu's, Muslims, and Buddhists have their intimate, religious ceremony with their immediate family, and then they have the legal civil ceremony for all of their extended family and friends.  I do these civil ceremonies all the time!    

The New York Times Religious Page in April of 2004 had the first article about the up-and-coming profession of the Professional Officiant. The article is in your Second Lesson.   Even 10 years later, however, the groups who are offering ordination and training are still mostly traditionally ordained men who still must follow the dictates of their particular religious affiliation or church,  and they cannot be as flexible as an independent professional Wedding Minister/Officiant can. 

I will teach you how to be available to all cultures, all traditions, in fact, any couple who comes to you who wants to be married, whether they've been married before, or the bride is pregnant, or whatever the situation is.  You will know how to deal with any situation and provide a loving, romantic, spiritual moment for them to exchange their vows with one another, in the presence of family and friends.   I will teach you how to develop a package that includes everything for these couples.   I will provide you with forms and ceremonies that fit every person's desire.  I will suggest locations for your weddings, including backyards, country clubs, restaurants, hotels, museums, fraternal organizations and City, County  & State facilities.  You will offer Couples in your area an alternative to going to the courthouse to get married!  And they can celebrate with all of their family and friends.

be my own bossThis is a brand new profession! The word "officiant" isn't even in  Webster's Dictionary yet!  You can go to my school, get your training, and be the first person to offer this service in your area.  The first one to do something often blazes the trail, sets the standards, provides the guidelines and reaps the first fruits rewards!

When you are ready to go on the internet, I can suggest a webmaster to create a web page for you, and I will list you as an associate on my #1 Web Page.

Hi Marcy Ann, Here are the answers to the questions for the first two lessons.   I have to say I "hemmed and hawed" over whether to spend the money for your course and just try to figure it out by trial and error. Well, I definitely made the right decision. I truly applaude you!  I am learning so much.   Sincerely,  Carol in Stevensville, MD

Hi Marcy Ann, I just did my first wedding!  and I loved doing it! I felt so comfortable and confident.  Your course was the biggest help.  I can't thank you enough.  Cindy in Brewster, MA
