Welcome to Marry Me In Indy! LLC. My name is Victoria Meyer and I have the best job in the world! It’s my full-time job to marry people!
Every day, I get to be a part of the beginning - or the continuation - of something amazing! I get to witness love in action as couples from every walk of life allow me to be the person who officiates their wedding. Over the last decade, it has been my absolute privilege to be a part of thousands of wedding ceremonies.
I wanted to become a wedding officiant to make it easy for every couple to be legally married. I wanted every couple to have the opportunity to enjoy their wedding day - be it a quick civil ceremony or a full, formal wedding - without judgement.
The act of getting married and taking the next step in your relationship is something that makes you more. You are more together then each of you could ever be alone. The last thing you should ever have to do is apologize about who you love and in what way you choose to marry them.
Thank you to all of the couples that have chosen me to marry them over the years. I’m humbled every day by the lives and stories that are shared with me.
To all those who have trusted me with the intimacies of them - either a secret wedding in my office, or the stories of their life and love to be incorporated into their ceremony - Thank You!
To every couple that walks off the street into my office - Thank You!
To every couple that trusts me, a complete stranger, to meet them in a seemingly random location to marry them - Thank You!
To every couple that has trusted me to enter their home to marry them - Thank You!
To every parent who has trusted me to marry their child - Thank You!
To the black man that called seven pastors who said no, before calling to ask me, “Will you marry a black man to a white woman?” I’m so sorry you had to endure that 7 times, but thank you for calling one more person. I'm so happy that person was me and I got to be the person to marry you! I will never forget your wedding vows and the African drummers!
To the first scared couple who called and said “We could get married as a man and woman at the courthouse, but he doesn’t identify as a man and he wants to wear a dress. Can you help us?” Thank You! Thank you for trusting me to marry you. Thank you for accepting me at face value and helping me to understand you and your life and relationship. It was an honor and a privilege. You have made me a better person. Thank You!
When I started my career as a wedding officiant, marriage equality was a dream, now it’s a part of life and my everyday business.
To every gay couple that has called to make sure I am legit, thank you for explaining why words on a website are not enough to trust and that “LGBT Welcome” is not always true. I’m so happy I was the one ready, willing, and able to marry you. Thank you for allowing me to put ideas and truths I didn’t truly understand into action, and bring a new era to life.

My husband and I moved to Indiana almost 15 years ago. We had a three-year-old son and I was nine months pregnant! We were warmly welcomed by the Indianapolis community and it’s been home ever since. My husband Peter and I have been married over 30 years. We were legally married in a civil ceremony in Peter’s native Germany. We also had a church ceremony in the church where I grew up here in the US. We have been through the green card process, the naturalization process, and the getting married twice process! Both of our boys are on the Autism spectrum. We have homeschool/unschooled them, and they are thriving! The older is now at Ivy Tech and the younger is preparing for his HS equivalent (like is big brother) and learning to bring his video game idea to life!
I graduated with a degree in Pastry Arts from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI and worked as a pastry chef in first class hotels for over 10 years. I worked in credit card banking customer service in every capacity from basic telephone customer service to Office of the President complaint resolutions. I grew up in Delaware. I’ve lived in Rhode Island, Colorado, New Mexico, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Germany and Indiana. I bring my broad and diverse life experiences to my job every day welcoming all walks of life. Peter has recently joined me in performing civil ceremonies in the office as well as mobile civil ceremony services! Peter worked as a chef for over 30 years. He apprenticed at one of the best hotels in Germany! We met working in a hotel in Delaware in 1989. He walked into the pastry shop and I knew I was going to marry him! His job as Executive Chef at Hilton Indianapolis is what brought us to Indy. His last position was at Auberge in Zionsville. He's enjoying spending time renovating our house, spending time with our boys and performing marriages.
Victoria is the main wedding officiant. All appointments will automatically default to her. If she is not available to perform Civil Ceremonies - either in the office or mobile civil ceremonies, Peter will be your officiant. This is the way we schedule our business and our family life. If for some reason you need a man to marry you, Peter is only available for simple civil ceremonies. You must let us know when you are booking so we can let you know if we can accommodate your request. We will let you know within 24 hours of booking if we can accommodate your request. If we cannot, we will refund your fee immediately within that 24 hour period. Peter performs a lot of civil ceremonies and is generally in the office on weekends during the busier times of the wedding season. There may be an additional fee to cover the extra gas and parking required to accommodate your request depending on our schedule.
Please be advised, we are ordained ministers. Our Civil Ceremony services are completely non-religious. If you have religious reasons for needing a man to sign your marriage license, we understand, however if you need a person completely separate from any religion to sign your marriage license, you will need to find a judge or other legal person to marry you. When we sign your marriage license, we must sign it as an ordained minister and that religious title will appear on your marriage license. That is what gives us legal authority to sign a marriage license in Indiana.
We hope to be marrying you in Indy some time soon! :-)
