When I got married in 2001 my own wedding was the first one I had attended outside of a church with a non-denominational minister. I received so many complements from our guests on how beautiful and unique our wedding ceremony was. It's a day I have never forgotten, and I would like to pay that forward to others.
My name is Carrie Gajda. Welcome to my website. I am so excited to be offering my services as a newly ordained non-denominational minister through the Universal Life Church.
I am a proud mom of two teenagers, and I have been married since 2001. My wedding day was one of the most joyous and profound days of my life. My spiritual needs differed from my family, so I did something unique by having an outdoor wedding with a non-denominational minister as our officiant. I loved how different my ceremony was from any other wedding I had ever been to. My hope is to do the same for others.
This quote by Fred Rogers sums up my mission and my dream of making an impact on the people I connect with:
"If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you met; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person."
In addition to weddings, I am offering Baby Blessings and Memorial Services. My hope is to develop meaningful bonds with families, so that I can fulfill ongoing spiritual needs during significant times.
My wedding day with my husband Jerry and our wonderful wedding officiant, Rev. Joan Fericy. Angel Joan is an amazing person who is a shining light for everyone she meets. She is my biggest inspiration for becoming a minister myself. The wedding ceremony she created for us was so perfect, it's something I will never forget. Thank you Angel Joan, I hope to carry on your legacy through my work, while spreading optimism and joy in all that I do.
