My name is Kimberly D. Burke, I'm licensed with the state of Ohio as a minister to Solemnize marriages. I've been an Officiant since the year two-thousand and five. I started out doing around thirteen weddings a year. Referrals have increased my business to approximatly twenty-five weddings a year.
I started Alternative Weddings (Trade Name #2373097) because I do not believe that a wedding should be restricted to the beliefs of a minister from your local church or a judge downtown in a courthouse. Just because you don't have certain beliefs, don't want to get married in a white dress or in a church, doesn't mean you shouldn't have options.
I do non-traditional (alternative) weddings; I do not focus on tradition. Just because something is a tradition doesn't mean it's the best way. Good things happen with change. If you are interested in a religious ceremony, I may not be what you are looking for. However, if you are looking for something adventurous, private, or out of the ordinary, you've come to the right place.
I work with all types of clients; From large white country club weddings, to cozy private ceremonies. I specialize in Non-Traditional Weddings, Personalized, Themed, Goth, Hand-fasting, Elopement, Same Sex, & any fun crazy adventurous dark wedding you can think of. Your ceremony can be held at a park, cemetery, theme park, haunted house, restaurant, bookstore, or party. Whatever you can dream up, I'm willing to make it happen. Write your own vows or I can help. If you would like me to wear a costume, you won't have to twist my arm. Ask me, please! Sometimes, I can even dress normal if necessary.
If you don't want or have a theme, that's okay! A basic non-religions wedding is one of my specialties. I can also help you pick a theme based off of your personality.
