Sedona Wedding Officiant for the Verde Valley

What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?” — George Eliot

I am Reverend Ken Froessel, an ordained interfaith minister; I look forward to creating a ceremony that reflects your beliefs, values, and ideals. As a non-denominational minister, I can help you customize a ceremony which embraces your love of each other and embraces the world cultures from which we draw our strength.

She believes that marriage is a sacred union in which two people come together to proclaim their love for one another as well as their desire to create a new life together. She is honored to bear witness to the blessed union of your hearts.

Rev. Barbara’s philosophy is that your ceremony should be an honest reflection of your beautiful relationship, tailored to you two and not just rattling off a generic script. She prides herself on working with you to create a ceremony that is inspirational, personal, and memorable. Whether your wedding is casual or sophisticated, elegant or off-beat, Rev. Barbara will perform a joyful ceremony that reflects your style.

The best gifts for your wedding party and guests are at Bueno Marketplace & Printshop right now!

For your wedding party, you can design tee shirts which proudly proclaim to the world who is the Maid of Honor (or Maid of Dishonor) or the Best Man. Or…

You and your beloved can design your own coat of arms for your tee shirts. One couple (she is Irish, he is Hispanic) designed a coat of arms with a jalapeno pepper linked to a four-leaf clover which they printed on tee shirts for the bridal party along with the date of the wedding.

Thinking organic and sustainable? Bueno Marketplace has two lines of tee shirts made of organic, sustainable materials. One line pulls plastic bottles out of landfills to spin thread which becomes the softest tee shirt you’ve ever worn! Stop by and check it out!

Bueno Marketplace can custom print baseball caps, luxurious waffle robes, flash drives, presentation folders, and many other products just for you!

For your wedding guests, let Nate and Felicia help you pick out a witty Arizona memento which you can give them in gratitude for their presence (and possible presents) at your wedding.
