Why are we different than all the other officiants?
What makes our ceremonies better than the one your best friend or uncle could do?
The answer is how we do your ceremony, one that no one has seen before, and nothing like the last wedding you witnessed, and one your Uncle just couldn't pull off.
One that is all YOURS!
Ever hear of a Modern Format Ceremony? It's all the rage, and it's what all the big weddings are doing. We know, it's what we do.
A Modern Format Ceremony is where the bride and groom face each other, no backs to their audience of family and friends, the officiant is standing in the center aisle, off to either side, all the while telling your love story. Everyone can see what is happening, can hear what is happening.
Everyone should laugh; maybe shed a tear and then cheer at the end. Weddings are a celebration, so celebrate!
We do Traditional ceremonies too, but I think once I explain to you in a phone call the differences, you just might choose the Modern Format. That said, we never forget you're the boss, it's your wedding.
Together we make your ceremony the best it can be, why leave it to chance.
Amazing Day Wedding officiants are ordained professional public speakers who take the time to practice your vows so the delivery is smooth and enjoyable.
Our officiants are experts at wedding procedures, protocols which can assist you with your wedding choreography.
Break the cost into as many payments as you wish up to seven days before your ceremony. We also accept all major credit cards & PayPal.
We officiate weddings of all kinds: traditional, themed, Christian, secular, spiritual, non-denominational, LGTB, Jewish, elopements and vow renewals. Amazing Day Wedding officiants are professional, fun and flexible.
Even though we are based in Traverse City, our service area is most of the west coast of Michigan but also including Grand Rapids, East Lansing, Novi north to Mackinaw Bridge (includes islands) and a bit of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We are expanding to Kalamazoo, Holland and St. Joesph this year.
We do Emergency weddings when your Officiant or Family member acting as one cancels at the last minute (14 last year!)
A word from Lead Officiant and owner of Amazing Day Weddings, Daniel Bodamer:
“Weddings are a time of celebration. You have a love story, and we can help you show and tell it. You may have the vows you want to use or we can help you develop them, so together we can make this your perfect day. My officiants are skilled public speakers and most importantly skilled listeners, who will ensure that your thoughts and ideas are delivered as you wish.
"I look forward to your contact, so we may get to know you and answer any questions. Thank you for finding our site and we hope to serve you."
Dan performed our wedding ceremony and he did a great job. He was fun to work with and made for a great, laid-back ceremony experience. The Amazing Day concept is a great alternative to the rigid ceremony structures of the past. Thank you Dan!
We absolutely loved our experience with Amazing Day Weddings and our officiant, Jan Stone. Initial communication with Daniel was very prompt in answering my questions and their online portal for messages and payments was very easy and user friendly. When we connected with our officiant Jan, I knew I had made the right choice to go with Amazing Day. She has a very relaxed, pleasant demeanor and made us feel comfortable and confident about the ceremony. Jan went out of her way to make sure that we were prepared and we loved the extra tid-bits she sprinkled into our ceremony! Everyone commented at how great she was! I would absolutely recommend Amazing Day Weddings and officiant Jan Stone, we were so happy she was part of our day!
Very simply put - We COULD NOT have done it without Randy. He made our wedding something special, and every guest I talked to couldn't say enough about him. He followed our vision to a tee while offering tasteful recommendations and putting a little of his own spin on the ceremony. He made sure that he ran through everything with us first, and made the dress rehearsal a BREEZE. Can't say enough great things. 11 out of 10.
