Our ministers are the reason that we show up to work every day. Without our ministers, AMM isn’t much more than a few empty desks, a couple of computers, and a coffee machine… 

But when you stand with couples in front of their friends and families, you are preaching our gospel of love and community. You’re reinforcing our values. You bring the magic that transforms weddings into transcendant expressions of love and joy!

That’s why it’s so important to tell your stories, to let others know why AMM exists, and why you chose to get ordained through us to officiate weddings. ...(continued)

Who Actually Writes the Wedding Ceremony?

...the Officiant? The Bride? The Groom? Siri?

Short answer: it depends. There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to who should write the wedding ceremony. Every couple, and every situation, every ceremony, is different.  Since we’re particularly close to the officiating side of the wedding world, we used to assume that the ceremony was almost always written by the friend or family member who was being asked to perform the ceremony -- the officiant! However, what we have found over the years is that the couple often wants to write their own ceremony. 

That said, it’s still worth pointing out a few things to help you decide who picks up the pen and who delivers the ceremony.
