Love, Laughter & Happily Ever After!
My name is Donna Jean Nethery; I am a Wedding Officiant and certified Relationship Coach located in Ontonagon, Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Ontonagon is located in the untamed western Upper Peninsula. A beautiful harbor town that sits on Lake Superior. Stunning sunsets, waterfalls, sandy shores, rocky shores... so many amazing backdrops for a wedding.
The western Upper Peninsula is also home to the Porcupine Mountains where you will find beautiful trails, stunning views, waterfalls, and more!
My service area includes the western Upper Peninsula and surrounding areas... Travel is an option!
Let's chat about your plans and your location ideas.
Are you planning a wedding? Vow Renewal? Let me help you create a beautiful ceremony...
I provide officiant services for local individuals as well as those seeking a destination wedding. If you're looking to have your ceremony at an outside venue, your home, in your backyard, at a local park; I would be honored to assist you.
I can also provide assistance with designing your perfect ceremony! Ceremony script assistance,
vow samples, ceremony samples from the 'short and to the point' ceremony to the more
extensive ceremony that include readings as well as rituals such as unity candle, tree planting,
sand ceremony, and more.
I conduct an interview with the happy couple in order to gather their input on their perfect
ceremony and give suggestions they may not have thought about yet; using that input, I will put together a ceremony script designed specifically for you. You will have a script review and agreement at least 30 days prior to ceremony.
All ceremonies include the completion and filing of your marriage license,
either in person or by first-class mail.
Elopement or Last Minute Decision? That's ok, let me help make it a dream wedding...
I can provide quick ceremony assistance, location assistance,
as well as a wedding arch, bouquet, boutonniere, photos, music;
let's plan it and make it happen. Michigan allows out of state
residents to marry here in this beautiful location; you obtain your
marriage license in the county you plan to have the wedding ceremony and there is a 3-day waiting period... plenty of time to hire me as your officiant, pick a spot, and then relax until the big day!
Sunset on the beach... we'll set up the arch to have the sunset directly behind and perform the ceremony before the sun sets into Lake Superior.
Fall color ceremony, sunset ceremony, ceremony standing in Lake Superior; you bet... You dream it, we'll see if we can make it happen!!
Winter outdoor ceremony is also possible if you're a thrill seeker that likes the freezing temps... but this one is only available using an extremely quick ceremony script :)
Travel is an option for most of the western Upper Peninsula and surrounding areas... Let's chat about your plans and location ideas!
