About the Officiant 


Me & What I believe

My name is Mrs. Kimberly D. Burke, owner of Alternative Weddings.  I am ordained as a Non-Denominational officiant, registered with the state of Ohio since two thousand five; not affiliated with any particular religion or ethnic group, all are welcome!  Love should not have labels or boundaries.


Love is a beautiful gift to give and a wonderful feeling to have.   Only you can determine if you are ready to join as one.  It's not for someone else to decide.  My position is to unite those who are ready to make this journey together.     


My Experience

I've done over one hundred weddings, commitments and renewal of vows in Ohio and surrounding states ranging from many sizes:     Elopements with just the bride and groom at my home or a local park;  Formal white weddings at country clubs;  Themed weddings, one being a pirate theme on the the Santa Maria replica located in downtown Columbus (see article).
