When my husband and I were married fifteen years ago, I fell in love with the whole wedding process. I admired our officiant who performed our wedding. When we said our farewells to our officiant, I looked to my husband that day and said, "I would love to do what he does someday"!
In 2017 I was ordained as a minister by Universal Life Church Ministries to officiate a wedding for a family member. With the stress of planning a wedding they overlooked this "small" detail, and I was more than happy to take on this amazing role.
I fell in love on their wedding day too and found my passion.
In April of 2020 I took a leap of faith with the support of my family, and we started making this dream a reality. With the craziness of our world and churches being closed I realized that there was a need for my services.
I am proud to accept couples from all walks of life and every kind of background.
I strive to go above and beyond for all of my couples, believing that everyone deserves an unforgettable ceremony.
Creating a ceremony that reflects your love story.
It's your day, and ALL ABOUT YOU - An important role of your wedding officiant is to help guide your wedding ceremony in a way that tells your love story. Many ceremonies follow a "format", and this gives us the foundation to craft a ceremony tailored to your beliefs, values and personalities. I offer advice based on years of experience to help craft a memorable ceremony.
The Services I Provide -
A free ceremony consultation (this allows you to see if I would be a good fit.)
Customization of ceremony examples, or the option to create something truly unique.
Email, phone and text support.
Signing/filing of marriage license.
I always touch base with my couple's when I arrive the day of the ceremony to verify that everything is in order. This includes a review of your marriage license to ensure that everything is in order. I will also check with DJ and Photographer to plan ceremony cues.

Kind Word's From Our Couples:
Michelle officiated our wedding, and was absolutely amazing from the word go! She helped us with choosing which direction we wanted for our ceremony, and what we wanted to include in it. I had an unfortunate hiccup when my wedding planner could not be present on our special day, and Michelle stepped right in and took charge to make sure our day went as smoothly as possible. And she knocked it out of the park. The decorations were more than what I had expected, just beautiful! I would highly recommend Michelle and DeWind by DeSigns for your special day!! ♥️♥️♥️
