Rev. Mike Strand, MN Wedding Officiant
Welcome and Thanks for Visiting!
Greetings and congratulations!
You are about to embark on an exciting and new life and I am here to make this a smooth and positive experience. Life is all fun and learning and you have made the right choice with Fab Weddings. I got started doing weddings over ten years ago when some friends asked me if I would perform their ceremony. Ever since that time, I have had been doing weddings for friends and acquaintences. I was having fun doing this, and I was so enjoying forming this special bond with people, that I decided to start performing ceremonies as a regular thing. To that end, I began researching the competition. When I found the Fab Wedding site I said to myself, "These people get it! If I do this, this is how I want it done." Rather than re-invent the wheel, I contacted Fab Weddings and offered my services, and here I am.
In addition to being a minister, I am also a yoga instructor, and I have built houses for Habitat for Humanity and continue to volunteer extensively for the Courage Center as well. I am also an author and public speaker. So yeah, I'm a people guy. My style is warm and relaxed, and with my background in yoga I am very good at helping people to maintain calm serenity during their ceremony. Your ceremony will be fun, beautiful, and meaningful, that is my promise to you.
I can perform a service in Spanish, German, or Finnish. Although I am not fluent in these languages, I take pride in pronouncing and speaking them correctly, so I can assure you that the ceremony will be spoken clearly. I enjoy studying languages, so if you have any language or languages that you would like all or part of the ceremony read in, feel free to contact me and I will help you create a beautiful ceremony that reflects your wishes!
Like the rest of the ministers at Fab Weddings, I pledge to work with you to design what you want for your wedding. It is all about you, your love, and your sharing it with your community of family and friends.
