Marriage Ceremony Officiant and Wedding Pastor Tom F. Hamel

Serving West Michigan Since 2005​​

"Thank you so much for officiating our ceremony. It couldn't have been more perfect, the outcome surpassed our expectations. We are so grateful that you were willing to work with us to create such a stress free, memorable experience. Thank you for your time and services. We have already recommended you to a few friends intrigued by our style of ceremony."
Jaci and Scott (Lansing)

Congratulations!  You're getting married.  This is the moment you will stand with the person you love and commit to sharing a wonderful journey.  You will promise to love and honor this person. You will promise to stand by their side through trials and joys.  Good times and not so good times.  

This might make you a little nervous because this is simultaneously a very joyful occasion and a very solemn occasion.  It will shape your future.  It is the start of a new life that uses words like wife and husband.  Words you've not used before with this person.  Not to mention there will be others gathered to witness this event.  In front of them you declare this person to be your one true love.  The one person in your life who is worthy of these promises.

There is another person standing there with you.  Your marriage officiant.  Your wedding pastor is more than just a skilled public speaker.  It is this person's responsibility to gently guide you through this celebration of love.  To instill confidence. To keep the focus on the couple. To be a guide through the rituals, readings, vows and rings and then finally to present you to your guests as two who have become one.

"It is my great joy to present to you for the first time the newly married couple."  

As a marriage officiant in Grand Rapids Michigan, this is a responsibility that I do not take lightly.  Since 2005 my goal has been to fill this need for a professional, credible, wedding marriage officiant who honors the sanctity of the marriage ceremony, who is willing to serve the couple according to their wishes and who truly values this celebration of life called marriage.

I would be honored to serve you.
