AMM’s 2024 Officiant Yearbook! The American Weddings Blog Year in Review

Published Thursday, Jul. 4th, 2024

We present AMM’s


‘Class’ of 2023-2024… 


Scroll down to find each minister’s most popular articles and videos!



It’s that time again! Time to reflect on the AMM Ministers, staff, celebrities, and other rock stars that contributed to the AMM American Weddings blog over the past year. And what better way to do that than on AMM's 15th birthday with a cute yearbook spread! (AMM was founded on July 4th, 2009, Independence Day!)

Thank you for being a part of the AMM family. With your help, American Marriage Ministries published hundreds of blog articles during the past 12 months, and hosted exciting training events across the country and online with Officiant Accelerator and Officiants Online! 

Because of you, we're able to continue serving ministers in every state: providing free online ordination, resources on how to officiate weddings, new ceremony trends, unique wedding traditions and rituals, state marriage laws, and much more. 



Have an awesome summer! Stay cool!
