ABOUT

OUR HISTORY

Fresh out of college and eager to serve, I (Phil) performed my first destination wedding ceremony in 1977 at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. After the ceremony the wedding coordinator asked me to print some business cards. Arizona Ministers was born.

Gwen Waring joined Arizona Ministers in 2000. Performing beautiful weddings and running our busy wedding office, she’s the most helpful resource for any engaged couple. Best friends and married partners, we try hard to be Arizona’s top wedding team.

PERFORMING ROMANTIC FAITH-BASED OR CIVIL CEREMONIES

MARRIAGE LICENSE EXECUTION AND HAND DELIVERY FOR RECORDING

Are you searching for wedding ceremony ideas? With Arizona Ministers you can write your own vows or personal words. Your customized wedding ceremony may include a traditional Unity Candle, Sand Blending, Anniversary Wine Box Sealing, Bell of Truce, or you can “tie the knot” with our original Golden Cords Ceremony. You can also have a very simple ceremony. We’re here to lead, not push you!

WE ARE LEADERS, NOT READERS.

Orators in the classic sense, we have tried to distinguish our ceremonies from others’ in every way. Blending families means your children can be included. We offer a ceremony in which your parents or all of your married guests can renew their vows. Since we do not read a long script from a binder, we make eye contact and completely engage you and your guests. All traditions & customs are cheerfully respected and facilitated from the heart. Plus, when you retain us, you get someone reputable and respected in the worldwide wedding industry.

We have won lots of wedding industry awards and recognize their popularity among rising wedding vendors. Our greatest blessings are the couples that have stayed in touch and have actually become our friends. We go for the reward, not an award. Like us on Facebook and we can stay in touch, too!

MEET US

You will not doubt our passion for your satisfaction. See for yourself why we might be just right for you. Schedule a complimentary “get acquainted” consultation! We want to hear your love story and wedding ceremony ideas. We can explain everything clearly and help you visualize your entire wedding ceremony. We try making this meeting as exciting as the ceremony itself!

OUR OFFICE

Our office is at the Phoenix Wedding Studio, but we serve all couples throughout Arizona. We travel to officiate weddings in Scottsdale, Mesa, Glendale, Sedona, Tucson, Flagstaff, The Grand Canyon and locations all over Arizona. We even marry couples on a corner in Winslow, Arizona! 

First we need to determine our availability for your wedding date, time and location. Our calendar fills quickly, so those who call early usually get us. If we can’t officiate your wedding we can often introduce you to someone else you will love.

Thanks for visiting! Phillip & Gwen Waring, Founders
