Catherine Howard, Wedding Officiant

I am an ordained minister through the American Marriage Ministries, and I believe in the meaningful union of two people, no matter what their beliefs are. I am ready, willing and able to help you navigate and bring to fruition your special day.

Your ceremony is the focal point of your wedding, so allow me to work with you on this journey. I welcome the thoughts and ideas of all couples, and my goal is to help you create a ceremony that is meaningful and fun!

My officiating services include a customized ceremony based on your responses to my questionnaire, with unlimited communication throughout the process. For weddings small or large, at a special venue or in your home, for renewing your vows on an important anniversary, or if you just want a short and sweet elopement, I can help you create a ceremony for your special wedding day.

I am an upbeat, enthusiastic, wedding officiant, and I look forward to helping you create the perfect wedding ceremony.

A Little Bit About Me

My husband David and I eloped in 2003. It was a second wedding for both of us, and while it was not traditional, it was very special to us.  After the ceremony we had a fabulous dinner at our favorite restaurant and went away for a long weekend.

Together we’ve worked in the hospitality business for over 45 years.  During this time, we had the great pleasure of bringing joy to many people. We’ve worn a lot of hats over the years, owning a catering company, a restaurant, a pastry shop, and also catering countless weddings throughout New England.

At the same time, we had dual careers as musicians. Together we’ve played many musical events as well as weddings, David as a saxophonist and vocalist, and myself as a vocalist. I also have a background in theater, which I enjoyed for many years.

I believe in the meaningful union of two people, no matter what their beliefs are. Helping couples  create a day they’ll always recall fondly is something we both take great pride in.

It has been my experience that one of the key elements in a successful marriage is a good sense of humor. Therefore, let’s begin your marriage with a ceremony that is both meaningful and fun!
