SE Michigan officiant needed

My FI and I have different religious beliefs [he is agnostic and I am non-denominational Christian] and we would like a ceremony that respectfully acknowledges both of our backgrounds. I don't want a wholly secular ceremony and neither of us wants an overbearingly religious one. At first we planned on having a justice of the peace perform the ceremony, but decided that might be too perfunctory and impersonal for us.

So we're looking for someone who can perform a somewhat non-traditional ceremony and work with us so that neither of us feels like the other's values are being overlooked.

Do you lovely ladies [and gents] have any recommendations or can you point me in a direction where I might find someone? The wedding will be in Port Huron and I don't mind paying anyone extra who is willing to travel. Thank you!

    We're using Rev. Fred Jolicoeur and we were able to design our entire ceremony from start to finish.  He provides a ton of resources (example readings, basic outlines, etc.) to pick from and also leaves it open for you to research your own (You don't have to use the ones he has).  My wedding isn't until October, and we're already pretty much set on our entire ceremony...which is a huge relief!

    Anyway, he has lots of information and great reviews on the following site:

    Ditto Rev. Fred. We used him and he was awesome. Everyone loved how personal our ceremony was. And you have a ton of things to choose from to make it fit you.
