Wedding Officiant - Christian Orthodox (Eastern/Greek)

Hi Philadelphia Brides,

I am looking for a Wedding Officiant to marry my fiance and I in Philadelphia, PA, at our reception venue. The thing is, I am Christian Orthodox and my fiance is not..and I want to have some traditional Orthodox customs in our ceremony. The thing is, the Orthodox church will not allow their priests to marry outside of the church.
Does anyone have any recommendations for officiants who have experience in Orthodox ceremonies/traditions/customs?

Please let me know!

Thanks,

J

  • I'm not marrying in the church either (I'm Greek) but I wanted to have some traditional elements too. I'm using Beth Palubinsky. She's a life cycle celebrant (a type of minister), but she's basically open to planning any kind of ceremony you want/she'll try anything. For example, we are doing the exchanging of the crowns with my grandparents' stefana, but I didn't want it to be religious at all. She's making it work. Her email is [email protected] Good luck!
