Minister Deb Weddings, San Diego – Featured Gay Wedding Officiant

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

Minister Deb

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding:

My name is Minister Deb and I have been officiating traditional and LGBT wedding ceremonies for over 12 years.

Before same-sex marriage was legal I officiated ‘commitment ceremonies’ for same sex couples who wanted to participate in a ceremony that had all of the components of a legal marriage. While performing these commitment ceremonies our visibility exploded as gay and lesbians fought for equal rights to legally wed. I lobbied, protested and spoke out for legalizing same-sex weddings for many years. Finally the Supreme Court gave all citizens the right to marry the person they love on June 26, 2015.

Since 2002 I have officiated over 250 weddings and I do this as a service to the LGBT community and to spread ‘loving kindness’ throughout our communities. Love has conquered our enemies and now they are our allies.

Joyful Joinings

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding:

CONGRATULATIONS! You popped the big question and your partner said yes. You’ve got so much planned for your big gay wedding day – casual or formal, big or intimate – AND one of the last details left to deal with is finding and selecting a person to marry you! Look no further, Joyful Joinings is gay-friendly and here to guide and serve you!
At Joyful Joinings, we will work with you to create a wedding ceremony as unique as you and your love. We will talk with you about your personal love story, your beliefs and traditions, your shared interests, and your special requests.

In addition, we can offer ideas and suggestions that will give your ceremony that extra loving and unique touch. While we are nondenominational, we invite couples to incorporate their spiritual or cultural traditions into their wedding ceremony, if they wish. It’s your day, your way!

We specialize in gay and lesbian weddings – Your Dream + Our Inspiration = Magical Ceremonies. “Jeri” Costa, Jenny Ward, and Michelle Foust Vertner started the business when gay marriage was legalized last November. Knowing that Washington State law does not require churches, synagogues or mosques to conduct gay marriages, and there are still many institutions that remain intolerant, Joyful Joinings offers an accepting alternative that, while nondenominational, invites couples to incorporate their spiritual or cultural traditions into their wedding ceremony.

They can assure you that your ceremony will not be boring – they are passionate about providing unique, personalized services.

Jeri Costa and Jenny Ward are both credentialed as non-denominational officiates. When you meet them you’ll feel their kindness, generosity, leadership abilities, positive energy and their passion for life. You will be working with one of them on an intimate basis and their priority is to make you feel comfortable with them.

Michelle Foust Vertner’s role is the day-of -ceremony coordinator. Her intention is to handle all the “behind the scenes” elements to bring your wedding day together flawlessly and beautifully.

Costa is also a certified life coach and spiritual counselor and offers custom services as varied as pre-marriage coaching, ceremony and vow writing, and personalized name selection services utilizing numerology.

As a former Senator, she fought for equal rights for LGBT citizens, including your right to marry. Because the partners of Joyful Joinings have a multi-faceted history of social justice work, they have committed to donate 10 percent of Joyful Joinings’ earnings to anti-bullying programs.

Joyful Joinings knows some of you have waited many years to get legally married here in Washington state, and they are honored to be part of your joyous celebration. Whether you live here in Washington State or not, the Pacific Northwest offers a plethora of choices for venues all year long: urban, country, beach, woods, boats, simple or glam, big or small. You may opt for a “destination” wedding or love the intimacy of getting married at your home.

If the two of you are finally planning to tie the knot, we’d love to help you make it the day of your dreams. Give us a call at Joyful Joinings!
