Blackman Wedding Ceremonies LLC
South Jersey Wedding Officiant
My name is Ruth Blackman.
I am a professional wedding officiant based in south Jersey serving central and New Jersey, Philadelphia, PA and surrounding counties, and northeast Delaware. I perform custom marriage ceremonies and vow renewals.
What does that mean? Well, I write and perform legal wedding ceremonies as well as commitment ceremonies and vow renewals. The wedding couple is fully involved in the development of a personalized ceremony. BUT, don’t worry! I will help guide the couple through the process of putting together the vows and ceremony including any rituals and traditions. Don’t want to write anything? No worries – I’ll do it all for you! All ceremonies are handwritten for the couple. I do not use cookie cutter, fill-in-the-blank, or in a book ceremonies. As well, I will be responsible for making sure the marriage license is secured, properly completed, and filed in time for your state! You will also receive follow up emails regarding the filing of the license, how to get your name changed, and other information.
I am a nondiscriminatory officiant. Your ethnicity, cultural background, skin tone, sexual preference, or religion makes no difference. LGBTQ+ friendly and inclusive.
I am an ordained minister through the AMM (American Marriage Ministries) and ULC (Universal Life Church). Why both? I have found that they both provide different resources for the ordained officiant – and who doesn’t want to have more options?
