Jerry Van de Vyver is an independent minister authorized to perform the rite of marriage according to the laws of the State of Michigan. I have performed wedding ceremonies in locations ranging from the pitching mound at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Florida, aboard a private yacht on Lake St. Clair, private homes in the metropolitan Detroit area, on the beach in Traverse City, at golf courses throughout the state and yes, even in churches.
I have been seminary trained and served for several years as an assistant to the chaplains in the United States Navy. Ordinations have been granted through the Church of Interfaith Christians, St. Luke Evangelical Christian Ministry and the Universal Life Church. Honorary Doctor of Divinity degrees have been conferred by the Church of Interfaith Christians and the Universal Life Church.
The wedding packages available through "Will You Marry Me" can range from being totally secular in nature with a simple exchange of vows to a very formal ceremony tailored specifically to your wishes which includes family members and friends taking part in your wedding day.
Our basic Wedding Ceremony Package is $200 plus travel expenses. A more specific quote can be prepared after our initial consultation. There is no charge for our initial meeting either in person or by phone. I prefer a face-to-face meeting with my couples in order to prepare a more exact type of ceremony to what they're expecting.
