Since 2013, Uncommon Ceremonies has been officiating weddings around Wisconsin to celebrate the power of love. Owner Jennifer Soule believes people who love each other should be able to form their own family – physically, emotionally, and legally. Whether you are a traditional or same sex couple, UC is ready to make your wedding an uncommon ceremony to reflect your uncommon love.
Wedding Officiant Jennifer Soule tells us a little more about her work:
Why did you decide to join the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber?
After returning from many years living out-of-state, I was looking for a way to connect with LGBT couples here. I became a wedding officiant, originally, to provide service to LGBT couples who might encounter difficulty finding a willing officiant, and wanted to continue providing this service. The Chamber has brought some great couples to my business, but even more, I’ve made some great friends.
Tell us a bit about your business and what you do.
Through Uncommon Ceremonies, I work with couples to create wedding ceremonies that reflect their love story, traditions, beliefs, and ideas. Every couple is unique, and my greatest joy is to perform a wedding ceremony for them that reflects that uniqueness. My experience performing over 150 ceremonies helps me bring interesting suggestions and solutions to this important rite.
I perform weddings of all types—for same-sex couples or traditional ones, religious ceremonies or secular, including beliefs of a wide variety of traditions. My philosophy is to help each couple create the best possible ceremony and to perform it well.
Whether your ceremony includes religious beliefs or is strictly secular, I can help you work through belief issues that come up and make suggestions to help you accommodate family belief pressures.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
Helping couples create ceremonies that suit them perfectly.
How would you like people to remember you and your work?
I would like wedding guests to remark on how perfectly the ceremony reflected the couple, and for the couple to remember how we worked through their story and ideas to make that happen seamlessly.
