How to Get Your Wedding Published on AMM’s Wedding Wall

Wedding officiants: Get your wedding published online!

 

 

 

AMM Ministers – Did you know you can publish your wedding on the American Marriage Ministries website? 

 

The AMM Wedding Wall showcases real weddings performed by AMM Ministers all across the country. You’ll find photos, descriptions, and original wedding scripts from hundreds of colorful elopements, big traditional ceremonies, destination weddings, backyard micro weddings, and everything in between. 

 

 

Submitting a wedding to the Wedding Wall is a simple process and a great way to showcase your work online. 

 

There’s no limit to the number of weddings you can submit – we want to see them all!

For Newlyweds: 
Currently, only AMM Ministers can submit a wedding to the Wedding Wall. If you’re getting married soon, or were recently joined in marriage by one of our ministers, and would like to have your wedding published on our website, team up with your officiant to submit.

How to Submit a Wedding to the AMM Wedding Wall

 

1. Register your wedding in your Minister Dashboard 

Make sure you have the couple’s permission before registering their event.

 

2. Select your registered wedding using AMM’s Wedding Helper

 

3. Upload wedding photos

Choose 1 or more photos that are in-focus and have good composition. We love to see photos of the ceremony and set up, unity rituals, happy couples and their families, and any creative shots that capture the spirit of the day. Images with a resolution of at least 100dpi will look best.

 

4. Credit the photographer

 Include the wedding photographer’s name, website address, and any social media handle (for example Insta: @photographer) in the Wedding Description.

 

5. Add details about the ceremony
In the space provided for the Wedding Description, share details from the day. We love to hear about the couple’s love story, how you worked together to craft the perfect unity ceremony, or why you selected a unique wedding reading. Add any details you wish about the wedding theme, venue location, weather, the feel of the day, and other sweet memories that stand out.

6. Give a shout out to other wedding vendors.
Show your appreciation for vendors that helped bring the ceremony together with a shout out in the Wedding Description. You might shout-out a skilled wedding planner, a gorgeous venue and talented day-of coordinator, a great photographer or videographer, or any other professionals that put the love in ‘team.’

 

7. Upload your custom ceremony script.
Share your original wedding script with us! We love to see how great officiants personalize a ceremony for their couple, and other officiants and engaged couples will be able to see and be inspired by your script online. If you don’t want to submit a full script, consider submitting an excerpt, an original Invocation or wedding sermon, or a unique wedding reading. 

 

8. Proofread your submission. 
Give your submission a quick spelling and grammar check to make sure it shines. 

 

9. Click ‘Publish This Wedding’

 

 

That’s it! 

 

Once your wedding’s been submitted, a member of the AMM staff will review it to ensure it meets our editorial standards. This is usually a quick process. 

 

Your wedding ceremony will be published online for all to see! 

 

Your published wedding may also be considered for a feature here on the American Weddings Blog, or highlighted on the @americanmarriageministries Instagram page.

Share your published wedding with potential clients

 

After your wedding’s been published, add a link to your officiant website as part of your portfolio, or share it with future clients on Facebook and Twitter. (You can do this by copying and pasting the unique page URL from your published wedding.)

 

Engaged couples will be able to read your ceremony description, ceremony script, and view photos of you delivering the perfect wedding service. If you’ve registered more than one wedding with AMM, they’ll be able to browse your work to get a better idea of all the services you offer. 

 

They’ll also be able to visit your Minister Profile page to learn more about you, your values, and what you can bring to their wedding experience. And your minister profile helps demonstrate your qualification as an ordained minister with AMM.

 

 

We can’t wait to see your weddings!

Before we go, we want to give a warm welcome to all the new ministers ordained with American Marriage Ministries last year! Nearly 100,000 new officiants joined AMM in 2021, and have gone on to spread love (and joyful ‘I do’s!) in their own communities.

 

We’re so glad you’re a part of the AMM family!  

 

Here’s to 2022 being a bright, joyful, hopeful, and exciting new year.
