View PDF Invitation to the Third Annual Newlywed Picnic(GRAND RAPIDS, MI– September 2013) - The Third Annual Newlywed BBQ Picnic was Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 2-5pm at the covered pavilion at Ideal Park in Wyoming, MI. It was great to see couples from the past several years and meet a new baby who have joined their families.

The picnic was born out of a dilemna. I've met many wonderful people and thought that many of them would become good friends with each other, but my problem was how to introduce everyone. Thus, the picnic idea was born. I hope to see everyone there next year too!

Rev. Misty , Ordained Clergy, Certified Wedding Officiant in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.About Rev. Misty
Owner of the
wedding ministry

I strive to provide the professional and personal service you need when looking for a wedding celebrant for your marriage ceremony or commitment ceremony. Based in the Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan area, I'm available to perform all sorts of weddings from simple and quick marriage vows to custom weddings planned well in advance for your special day.

Ordained clergy since 2004 and a Certified Wedding Officiant, I chose the Universal Life Church because it is an advocate of religious freedom, and embraces ministers from all spiritual traditions and walks of life. This ordination allows me to perform couple-centered marriages legally in the state of Michigan that do not require couples to prescribe to a specific religious denomination.

I live in Grand Rapids and am owned by a Springer Spaniel puppy and two very spoiled cats. I have an extensive collection of eclectic books, fabric and fun refrigerator magnets. I also enjoy gardening, raising obscure raspberry varieties and canning unusual jams and jellies.

Misty is a member of the West Michigan Wedding Association, the American Council of Wedding Officiants, and the American Association of Wedding Officiants.
