Living Grace Pastoral Services

Price Range $400 - $800


As an ordained pastor of 22 years, Ellen is approachable and easy to talk to. Her full-time job as a chaplain allows her to work with people from many diverse backgrounds daily. Known for her caring and insight, Ellen cares about people for who they are.

Ellen cares about your story–Knowing details like how you met and what drew you to each other helps Ellen craft a unique ceremony that fits your personal style. Ellen can help you choose Scriptures, poems, meaningful rituals, songs and vows or she can help you write your own.
Ellen takes great pride in customer service and never recycles messages from one ceremony to another. She crafts her message based on your personalities, life experiences, and hobbies.

As an added benefit, Ellen attends the rehearsal because she wants you to feel secure knowing that she has all the ceremony details handled. She wants to meet your family and friends so she can know them by name on the wedding day.

If you would like the added investment of pre-marital counseling to lay a strong foundation for your marriage, Ellen can facilitate exploration sessions in which each of you talks about your expectations of marriage. Discussing important topics and personal style habits can smooth the transition into marriage. Ellen earned her Doctor of Ministry degree in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty University and her Master of Divinity degree from Emory University and has counseled many people in her two decades in ministry.
