Elopements Welcome!

Do you have a last-minute wedding but can’t find a space on my calendar!
Please contact me!

I can’t guarantee that I can find a spot for you, but I don’t charge extra for last-minute elopements, and can almost always find a way to help. (Exceptions being my out-of-office dates as noted here.)

Hi, I’m Rev. Heron

Greetings!

I have been an interfaith minister since 1993 and was ordained in January of 1996, just before I officiated a wedding for the first time.

I absolutely love weddings and have been honored to officiate at many ceremonies for friends old and new. It is common for me to do weddings for multiple generations and branches of families.

In the wake of the global readjustment, people around the world have been left hanging as international borders were slammed shut and plans postponed, to many, nearly indefinitely. 

Fortunately, humanity prevails, technology progresses, and it is quite thrilling to be able to expand what I do to help people in countries worldwide!

My pricing is deliberately low to allow all couples worldwide to have access to this amazing leap forward in matrimony. Love knows no boundaries, and I love to help couples be together.

Please feel free to reach out and schedule your personal 15 minute consultation about online weddings today!

You can schedule at any time, day or night using my online booking system.

IMPORTANT: When you book an online appointment, you will get an email from me with the appointment details. Please watch for this email as it could be filtered into your spam or junk folders. If you don’t see it, please get in touch!

You can see real couples’ reviews about Online Weddings here on my site, in-person wedding reviews on my WeddingWire account and even more reviews on Online Weddings Utah‘s business page on Google.

You can also see even more of the many weddings I have officiated on my Celtic Handfastings page on Facebook.

LGBTQIA+

LGBTQIA+ weddings, same-sex marriage, gay marriage, lesbian marriage, or as I like to refer to it – marriage – is an important civil and legal right, and a social and cultural rite of passage.

Any marriage is a genuine joy to be a part of, but LGBTQIA+ weddings are very special indeed. Every ceremony feels like a triumph, and several of them have even begun their ceremony by quoting the Supreme Court decision from Justice Kennedy. 

Personally speaking, I have been a lifelong and passionate advocate for LGBTQIA+ civil rights, even before I was impacted by the marriage equality decision. Starting from my earliest adult years, I took part in marches, rallies, vigils and other acts of support for the LGBTQIA+ community.  

When it was briefly made legal in Utah in December of 2013, I rushed to the courthouse and over the course of those heady few days was fortunate to officiate dozens of ceremonies for happy couples.

Finally, when the decision was made permanent on Oct. 6th, 2014, I was again at the courthouse offering free ceremonies for anyone who needed it.

Since marriage equality was made the law of the land, I have been fortunate to be the officiant at many weddings that include same-sex couples, and am still a proud supporter and ally of the LGBTQIA+ community.

I am very happily married to a trans woman and we have been together for nearly 25 years now, with two beautiful children and two dogs in our family.

My heart lives here
