Non-traditional wedding officiants provide personalized ceremonies

MarriedByJane.com got a nice mention over at OnMilwaukee.com

Jane Wiedlin, the guitar player for The Go-Go’s, officiates weddings under the name “Reverend Sister Go-Go.” Wiedlin, who lived in Manitowoc, West Allis, Waukesha and up until two years ago, Madison, currently lives in California. She will fly anywhere in the world to perform a wedding.

Wiedlin started performing weddings during the brief time same-sex marriage was legal in California. When the law was repealed, she continued to perform weddings for both gay and straight couples.

“It’s a good fit for me. I’m a romantic at heart. I enjoy public speaking. And I love a good party,” she says.

Wiedlin, who became an officiant via the Internet-based Universal Life Church, writes a personalized ceremony for each couple based on telephone conversations.

She has three packages available: a gold service for $1,500; a platinum service for $2,500 which includes her attendance at the rehearsal dinner and a double-platinum service that includes her attendance at the rehearsal and a four-song jam session at the reception with the wedding band, for $4,000. (Prices do not include Wiedlin’s airfare and lodging).

“It’s different and fun,” says Wiedlin.
