I’m Judy, and I can’t wait to create the ceremony that will compliment your perfect wedding day.

Are you looking for a heartwarming and captivating ceremony for your wedding? Do you want to include all the things you want – and none of the things you don’t? Do you think your wedding should actually be about…the two of you?

That’s what I do.

Performing marriages in Northern Michigan (Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City, Petoskey, Sault Ste. Marie, Tahquamenon Falls, & more)



“Custom” means that from the welcome to the vows to the ring exchange to the pronouncement and everything else, I guide you through the options and we work on it together in a personal planning session. You get the ceremony you’ve always wanted.



“Legal” means I’m certified with the judiciary to register your marriage and fulfill all obligations as a lawful officiant. Your paperwork is handled and filed according to state regulations, and you get peace of mind knowing that your marriage is fully legalized.



“Personal” means (and this is the best part!) I’m not just pulling platitudes out of a can from the wedding I did the week before. There’s magic in how you met and got engaged and love each other, and even more magic in telling your family and friends on your day.

Judy was wonderful to work with! She sent us a copy of her script and we were able to change anything that we needed to. She was very professional and made our day that less stressful. I highly recommend Judy to anyone who is looking to get married in the Mackinaw City/ St. Ignace area.

Judy is great to work with! I am a photographer and love when she is the Officiant. She is so kind and thoughtful to everyone's needs. I would recommend her to all couples. I would give her 10 STARS if I could!~ Kelly

Judy was absolutely the best! I couldn't imagine anyone else marrying us. She emailed our options way before the wedding, so we had plenty of time to decide what we wanted. She was very willing to work with whatever we wanted to add or change to make it more personal but her already prepared content was actually exactly what we wanted! Thanks so much Judy!

We always knew we wanted to elope and it was important to us that our officiant and photographers fit into our day comfortably. Judy felt like family and made the day perfect. We were comfortable from the very first time we talked over FaceTime and she kept in contact through our whole planning process. She was willing to work with us on location and time when we were almost ruined by bad weather. I’m so glad we found Judy!

Judy was our officiant in July 2021. We postponed our wedding due to covid reason's in 2020 and we couldn't have found a better person to marry us. She is so sweet, helpful, and great with communication. She answered my emails so quickly. She gave me suggestions for great restaurants in the area and even brought a beautiful white arch for our special day. She made sure we had the most perfect day. I am so thankful I have found her to marry us. She brought such happy positive energy everything we spoke with her. Even in person she carried such beautiful energy. My husband and I recommend her to anyone in the Mackinaw city area! You can't go wrong she will make sure to help you have such a perfect day!!
