Congratulations On Your Impending Nuptials!
My name is Vickie Michels; I am a non-denominational minister, which works outside the mainstream church. I work with couples with varying degrees of belief. I do not judge and I will not preach. I am here to work with you on creating a ceremony (baptism/christening, secular baby naming, vow renewal or wedding) that fits your level of beliefs. I mainly help couples with their dream weddings. I truly enjoy helping couples create the wedding or vow renewal ceremony of their dreams. Please allow me to help you create your special moment.
Your day should be as relaxed and carefree as possible. I believe that your ceremony is all about you as a couple. I customize your wedding ceremony to the way you want it. This is your day; you should have it your way! I love sitting down and talking with couples about their vision for the ceremony. The creative and unique pieces that you put into your ceremony are what makes it special.
I perform wedding and vow renewal ceremonies for all couples. Your ceremony may be nondenominational or secular (not religious), I will officiate it with warmth and sincerity. If you are looking to have a ceremony that includes your best four-legged or feathered friend then, please contact me. Your animal friend may be your ring bearer, flower bearer or a welcome guest. I will be more than happy to help you create a ceremony that includes them in it.
Every ceremony is designed to be special. This is your day, the long-awaited moment when you will no longer be responsible for yourself alone. This is the day that you become one with your beloved.
Art of Marriage
Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
A good marriage must be created. In the art of marriage,
the little things are the big things…
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say, “I love you.”
It is at no time taking the other for granted.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives;
it is standing together facing the world.
It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice,
but in the spirit of joy.
It is not expecting perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding, and a sense of humor.
It is having a capacity to forgive and forget.
It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal,
the dependence is mutual, and the obligation is reciprocal.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is not marrying the right partner; it is being the right partner.
It is discovering that your love for one another at its best will never
lose sight of or be blotted out by the common place experiences of life.
And it is remembering that remaining devoted, confident and hopeful
in one another are the secret ingredients, which will help you to
remain two very happy people, richer for your oneness.
