Custom Wedding Ceremonies & Vow Renewals
Officiating wedding ceremonies was the last thing I expected to love to do, but it seems Spirit had another plan! A month before I graduated seminary, a prominent wedding officiant (who happened to be was my teacher) was unavailable to accept a client, she recommended me to do the ceremony. I reluctantly agreed.
The couple: In the process of co-creating this ceremony – from beginning to end - I feel in love with the couple and they fell in love with me.
After the ceremony, the groom hugged and lifted me off the ground in a joyful embrace. I felt so grateful to have co-created this magical experience and have since fallen in love many times over. With the overwhelming joy I felt, I realized that this was something I was clearly destined to do.
My clientele is incredibly diverse ranging from religious, to spiritual to atheists – folks in their 20’s to couples in their 80’s; they have represented many religious traditions, common and uncommon.
Supporting couples in co-creating ceremonies that recognize their unique understanding of love and spirituality is what I do. The process is to delve deeply into their unique experience of love that only they truly know and understand. Then together, through meetings, questionnaires and conversations we unfold a ceremony that embraces the unique love and experience.

What other happy couples are saying!
Sonia was a dream to work with!
From our initial meeting to our wedding, Sonia was attentive, thoughtful, generous and supportive. Sonia took the time to get to know us deeply, which provided a strong foundation throughout the planning process. As an Interfaith Minister she worked with us to integrate some of the traditions from our religious upbringings into our ceremony. She gave us a variety of readings and suggestions to inspire us to create a beautiful wedding ceremony that celebrated our love. She has an open heart and mind; she is truly wise. We are forever grateful for her spiritual guidance." -Cara and Rich
She really has an amazing gift.
“To be married by a minister whom you feel is like family is a once in a lifetime experience. Reverend Sonia Ketchian is just that! During the journey to our special day, she created a comfortable path for us with her smile and loving way. She really has an amazing gift - words can not do it justice. She took one of the most important days and made it a lifelong loving and amazing memory. To this day, Rev. Sonia Ketchian remains an integral part of our life and I would highly recommend her for all services." — P. & J.
She is an absolute perfect choice!
“Once in a while a being comes along who with a glance can lay the soul of room bare and breathe peace and love into its lungs. Sonia Ketchian is such a being. She is a Reverend in the truest sense of the word. She holds reverence, awe for the love vibrating in the core of everyone she meets. That's why she was the perfect person to call when it was time for my wife Jodi and I to renew our wedding vows. Sonia was able to transport our family and friends directly into the lair of gratitude and joy. And her words kept us all there throughout the duration of the evening.I recommend Reverend Sonia Ketchian for any couple looking to get married or renew their wedding vows. - Ty & Jodi
Quite simply, Sonia embodies pure love and she brings this to every endeavor.
"Quite simply, Sonia embodies pure love and she brings this to every endeavor. She is a wise and peaceful resource when helping to create a ceremony. We especially appreciated her knowledge of all faiths and traditions, which allowed us to create deeply personal moments in our wedding and baby blessing. There are not enough words to accurately describe how wonderful Sonia is. We love her and highly recommend her!" - The Boyd Family
