About Creative Wedding Officiants...

We hope you will consider our service when planning your wedding, renewal of vows or commitment ceremony. We look forward to working with you and your partner to make your day a very special and memorable one. 

Who we are  

Creative Wedding Officiants was organized in 1994 by Teresa George and Patricia Wagner-Soteros to meet an increasing demand for personalized wedding ceremonies performed at locations that were, until then, considered out of the norm. Locations such as homes, parks, beaches, party centers or restaurants, boats or cruise ships, virtually anywhere. The demand grew and Wayne Doberstyn and Traci Von Duyke joined in 2004 and Cindy Hauska joined in 2007. All are ordained by Universal Life Church, licensed by the State of Ohio and are active members of The National Associate of Wedding Officiants and the National Association of Wedding Ministers. Our staff has over 40 years combined experience and has written and performed hundreds of ceremonies performed in Ohio as well as Florida, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania.

Our belief  

It is our belief that each couple should have a wedding ceremony as unique and distinctive as their relationship. We believe that all wedding ceremonies should accommodate the specific needs of each relationship in a very special format. We take into consideration religious and cultural backgrounds, children and stepchildren, families, relatives, guests, hobbies, interests and special needs when planning wedding ceremonies.

We assist couples in writing their own wedding ceremonies or guide them through the process through our on-line ceremony workbook tool or through our inventory of pre-written selections that can be combined and incorporated into a personalized wedding ceremony. Readings, poems or prayers can be read by our ministers or by the couple or their guests. Wedding ceremonies can be as long or short as desired and can be performed at virtually any location, on any day of the week and at any time.

From a casual event to an elegant black-tie affair, our service offers many types of wedding ceremonies - religious, non-religious, civil, spiritual, inter or mixed faith, inter or mixed culture and special request.

Our mission

Our mission is to provide couples with a personalized wedding ceremony created especially for them, performed their way, at their location, at their time and at a reasonable cost that will become and remain a cherished memory forever.
