Mary Gehr is a member of the International World Christianship Association of Clergy, The American Association Of Wedding Officiants and The National Association of Christian Ministers.
She has worked as a lay minister in family and marriage ministry since the early 90's becoming a Christian "Ordained" Minister in 2001. While Mary's religious background is in Christianity, her commitment is to provide stress free/customized wedding ceremonies that are very much interfaith and respectful of all spirtual practices.
Mary also holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from California State University, Long Beach. Her educational background is in Business Management with a Marketing emphasis. She has also studied Psychology, Theology & Public Speaking.
When combined with Mary's background as a professional Celebrant and corporate business executive, she has a powerful and wonderfully distinctive set of skills, training and expertise. And it all benefits you and your ceremony!
Mary has officiated hundreds of sacred and contemporary ceremonies in Atlanta, Southern California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Louisiana and various global destination weddings. She has co-officiated with other Ministers & Rabbis, celebrating the spiritual and cultural bouquet of our times. Her calm demeanor helps the couple relax and enjoy their special day.
If Mary is unavailable to personally officiate your ceremony, she will help you identify an affiliated Officiant and assist with the design of your custom ceremony if requested.
