My name is Victoria Meyer and I'm happy to meet you here on the world wide web! I've been married for 23 years and have 2 great kids. We've lived in Indiana for almost seven years and I love the mid-west! I've been a stay at home mom since our first son was born. But as most mom's know, that's still a lot of work! The fun part is, I've managed to find time to devote to things that I love just as much as my family and fit into my and car line lifestyle. I'm an ordained minister able to officiate weddings both secular and spiritual ceremonies. I also officiate same gender weddings.
Thanks for stopping at my site. Take your time and browse what I have to offer. If you don't see what you want ask me! I'm up for anything. Please take time to visit my blog!
My phone number is (317)403-7379
The above is the official blurb. But, I would like to take the time allow you to get to know me a little bit more. I want you to choose me to officiate your wedding and I want you to trust that I'll be there and all will be well.
I am open to meeting you anywhere but I usually meet with couples at my home in Fishers. It's easier for me with kids. Mine will be occupied here and leave us alone and if you have kids they are welcome to join you. Please catch me if I automatically offer them a snack you may disapprove of.
I grew up in Delaware and Graduated from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI with a degree in Pastry Arts. I worked as a pastry chef for over 10 years. My husband is an Executive Chef and we did our bit of traveling around when we were younger. We were married in his native Germany where we lived for a year - 23 years ago!! Then we've lived in Delaware, Colorado Springs, Telluride, Santa Fe, Delaware again, Dusseldorf (Germany, again) Oklahoma and now Indiana. After my pastry career I had a second career in credit card banking/customer service. Along the way I became certified in Scientific Swedish Massage, Basic Foot Reflexology and Therapeutic Touch.
We have a cute little Westie named Mercedes. She's a great dog and no one can believe we are her third (and last) owner. And a kitty named Ella we just fostered and adopted.
Traditions of Germany... Germans don't have a bachelor party or bridal shower. Instead, they celebrate the Polterabend on the night before the wedding. It is a tradition where guests bring old dishes and throw them in front of the house. Shattering into thousands of pieces, it is said that broken crockery brings good luck. The more bits and pieces there are, the more luck the bride and groom will have (except for the unlucky task of cleaning all of that up.)
I was married in Germany. No dishes were broken on purpose. A few wine glasses were. It was quite the party!!!
Things to think about when hiring an officiant
Question: What advice do you have for a couple looking to hire an officiant?
Answer: Remember it's your wedding day and you get to call the shots. Your wedding ceremony is when you vow to love each other for life. This should be a memorable and possibly emotional occasion. You should feel comfortable with the person you hire to preside over the ceremony and know everyone there should feel comfortable. Make sure the person you hire is going to provide you with what you want.
Question: If you were getting married, what do you wish you knew about choosing an officiant? Any inside secrets to share?
Answer: You are hiring a professional. They should mold to you and your wishes. If you were having a religious ceremony in a mainstream church you would follow their ceremony. But, you aren't. You are planning your ceremony. Your officiant should respect that. Make sure you all get along. You want to remember walking down the aisle to your beloved and the person asking you the sacred questions. If you are funny hire someone with a sense of humor that matches yours! If you are solemn and quiet find someone able to match that.
Question: What questions should a couple ask to hire the right officiant?
Answer: How much do you charge and what does that include? Some officiants will charge for individual services. If you are paying for a package deal what is in that package? Can I call you and email you at will? What is a reasonable turn around time for you to answer my email or return my voice mail? Is the rehearsal included?
Be clear about what you expect of the officiant. Are they simply going to take orders from you or your wedding planner or are they going to organize the whole thing? Make sure everyone is OK with that. You want to make sure your officiant can help you plan who walks when and does what if you need that sort of help.
How will they handle glitches? Or crying children or a drunk groomsman? These will always happen. You want to know the person at the front of the room can handle them.
