Wedding Officiant • Spiritual & Life Counselor • Interfaith Minister
Let me be your guide and resource for creating the ceremony of your dreams! I will write a personal ceremony for you that is beautiful and romantic.
Whether your wedding is small or large, religious, spiritual or non-religious, you may have a personalized wedding ceremony that reflects your values. The words and phrasing that you select to unite your lives form the foundation of your marriage and are central to your wedding day. I can provide sample readings, rituals and vows for you to review and choose from.
My pledge is to support you in this process and to create an exceptional wedding ceremony! To learn more, check out Vows & Kisses.com.

About Reverend Ron King
My goal is to serve as a guide and companion like an anam cara (a celtic tradition), the practice of soul friendship, of coming alongside in order to facilitate healing, wholeness, holiness, and spiritual formation. My focus is fully endorsing a healthy integration?of?body, heart, mind and spirit.
My spiritual practice consists of metaphysics, breathwork, gratitude,?compassion, awareness and forgiveness. I read extensively, and recognize the divinity of?all around me. I dedicate myself to unconditional and non-judgmental love. My life is my spiritual practice and I want to “live fully and love wastefully” (Bishop John Spong).
