Michigan Marriage License Information by County
Grand Rapids, MI Wedding Chapel

616-915-8444

Yes, we are delighted to announce that we will perform same-sex ceremonies. Remember, you can apply for your marriage license online via the Kent county clerk. If you apply on Friday we can perform your ceremony after you pick up your license on Monday.

The Kent County Clerk is not waiving the 3-day state waiting period. Other county clerks across the state may make other decisions. We can marry any Michigan couple with a valid Michigan marriage license from any county. If you are an out-of-state couple you must marry in the county where you have your license issued, but any officiant/minister who is willing may perform your ceremony.

If you are looking to be married on the East side of the state, please visit our colleague Rev. Rhonda of InfiniteBlessingsWeddings.com who will be happy to perform your ceremony in the Waterford/Detroit area (Oakland county offers waiting period waivers for “good reason” and Rev. Rhonda is based in Oakland county and performs same-sex marriage ceremonies.)

We have a limited number of chapel elopements available.
The local courthouses are booked until September.

(Please remember there is a 3-day waiting period to get marriage licenses from the county clerk, so please plan ahead. While they are closed on the weekend, you may still apply online at any time.)

GRWeddingOfficiant.com hosted the 3rd Annual Newlywed Picnic on Sunday, September 29, 2013

View PDF Invitation to the GRWeddingOfficiant.com Third Annual Newlywed Picnic(GRAND RAPIDS, MI– September 2013) - The Third Annual GRWeddingOfficiant.com 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 GRWeddingOfficiant.com
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 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.

Contact Misty today at 616-915-8444 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your upcoming nuptials or for more information.
