I am Rev. Ida-May A. Hanson, an Indiana professional wedding officiant, a non-denominational minister. Selecting a skilled and caring celebrant can make a significant difference for your once-in-a-lifetime occasion. The most important decision you have to make in planning your wedding is choosing the person to whom you will entrust the single, most significant and memorable event of your life. I believe you are the Guests of Honor not for only a day but for the rest of your lives. I consider the wedding ceremony to be a very personal and sacred time in couples lives. I would love to talk to you about your wedding plans. Your Wedding Day should be a smooth and gentle experience for you, your families, and your guests.Most couples are not sure what to expect from their Wedding Officiant. At our first meeting you will learn more about me and what I can offer for your dream ceremony. Remember, I am not trying to sell you anything. I am applying for a position in your life changing moment. Making each couple's special day a true reflection of their life and love for each other is my greatest goal. I want to help create your ceremony while allowing you to add elements that make it a true reflection of the two of you. I specialize in designing and performing a one-of-a-kind ceremony. Planning a wedding can be an exhilarating experience as well as a somewhat nerve-wracking one. After all, there are no "do-overs" for your big day. Your ceremony is the heart of your wedding day celebrations with a public declaration of your feelings for each other. Make sure it celebrates your love and feels true to you both. As unique as your entire wedding day will be, your wedding ceremony is a wonderful opportunity to express and publicly share your love story with each other and your family and friends. Your ceremony will allow you to add elements that will make it a true reflection of the TWO of you and a moment everyone will remember. I perform Civil Ceremonies, Vow renewals, Vow Reaffirmations, Handfastings and Commitment Ceremonies.
