What Do We Do?
We marry people! We have the best job in the world!! We are full-time wedding officiants performing all types of weddings.
Peter Performs Civil Ceremonies in our office, and Victoria performs just about every type of wedding ceremony in and outside our office at your chosen location.
We want to make getting married a great experience for you. Our years of diverse experience have given us the tools to help you get married any way you would like to get married. Maybe you don’t even know the possibilities! Maybe you don’t know that your wedding ceremony can be fun! Lighthearted, romantic, and tailored to fit you perfectly. You might need someone to let you know that it’s OK to have a really short ceremony - or no ceremony at all!
We created a simple civil ceremony space in our office to help couples just get married without the fuss. You can have something as simple as just signing your marriage license or the perfect little elopement with our flower wall backdrop and signs from our wall for pictures. It’s the most affordable place to get married in downtown Indy!
Victoria specializes in helping you figure out what it is you want and need and making it possible. She can go from a wedding by the deathbed of a loved one to a really fun wedding where the couple may have had a little too much to drink before the ceremony. From a small wedding at a backyard bbq to the grandness of The Scottish Rite Cathedral or the Conrad Hilton. We are always experienced professionals.
We have expert knowledge about how to get legally married in Indy. Victoria is in the Marion County Clerk's office every week returning marriage licenses for couples who book a formal wedding ceremony. Most of the clerk's office are saved in her phone!
We are open to ALL!
We Welcome and Embrace All Walks of Life

We welcome couples from every walk of life. It is the main tenet of Marry Me In Indy is built on. Victoria became a wedding officiant so that she could provide a comfortable space for any couple to get married without judgment. This includes more than just the LGBTQ Community. We want couples who may be on the autism spectrum or have friends and family members on the autism spectrum to know they are all welcome. Couples with anxiety - we want to make you comfortable. If English isn't your first language - we get it! Peter is a native of Germany. We had our civil ceremony in Germany before Peter got his Green Card. He's a naturalized citizen now (but still has quite the accent.) We understand the pressures of language barriers and immigration. Interracial couples, and age-gap couples, you are welcome here.
We do have a few exceptions: We welcome people of all religions, but we limit our religious ceremonies. We are online ordained ministers, so we can legally perform weddings in Indiana. We have not attended seminary. All Civil Ceremonies are non-religious. Peter does not perform any sort of religious ceremony. Victoria has a solid multi-denominational Christian background and is happy to perform Christian and mixed-faith ceremonies. I (Victoria) LOVE Jewish wedding traditions! I do not write or perform sermons or administer holy communion. I perform many simple hand fastings, but I am not pagan, so I do not perform traditional pagan ceremonies.

We moved to Indiana almost 16 years ago. We had a three-year-old son and Victoria was nine months pregnant! We were warmly welcomed by the Indianapolis community and it’s been home ever since. We have been married for 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 Victoria 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!
When you start a business, usually the people who help the most are the ones that provided child care so I could go to the first wedding. There were MANY Saturdays I left our little boys in Peter's office eating strawberries while I went down the street to officiate a wedding!!
Victoria 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. Later, she worked in credit card banking customer service in every capacity from basic telephone customer service to Office of the President complaint resolutions. Victoria grew up in Delaware. I’ve lived in Rhode Island, Colorado, New Mexico, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Germany and Indiana. She bring my broad and diverse life experiences to my job every day welcoming all walks of life. Peter is a native of Germany. He was born in Bonn - North Rhine/Westfalen. 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. Peter walked into the pastry shop and Victoria knew she 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.
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.
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.
Diversity Statement We are open to marrying any couple. It is our goal to meet each couple where they are and help them to have a positive wedding experience. In order to meet you where you are, we approach every wedding with an open mind - we don’t know anything about you until you tell us and that’s only if you choose to tell us. Wedding ceremony scripts have been written for years for brides and grooms. Now, bride and bride or groom and groom are very common. Some couples are choosing to forego traditional gender roles altogether and are using the terms spouse or partner. If you have made the choice to use non-traditional pronouns, please let us know, and we will be happy to honor your preferences. Any wedding ceremony script can be changed to reflect those personal preferences.
