About Us

Ken Patterson is a fully Ordained Minister, and the Pastor of the multi-cultural, inter-racial, and non-denominational Grace International Church in Baltimore, MD. (www.unthinkchurch.org) He and his beautiful wife, Jo-Ann both specialize in ceremony planning, counseling, and designing weddings created uniquely for you.

One of the most frustrating situations that Pastor Ken and Jo-Ann faced in their own wedding ceremony was the many stipulations required by the traditional churches before being able to wed. This arrogance nearly destroyed the beauty of the wedding planning, yet triggered a passion for working with couples that could have only resulted from his very own ceremony rejections.

In fact, we were “left at the altar” by our own Pastor & Ceremony Officiant just 4 weeks prior to the ceremony! Imagine that! (Wait til you hear the details of this one when we have our consultation…ugh!) The scramble to find a replacement, coupled with such a limited number of options we were comfortable with prompted our commitment and goal that no other couple would endure what we had to endure with an officiant, ever.

Pastor Ken stated in an interview that “once I figured that people who really do love each other also come from varied backgrounds…some have been divorced and are remarrying, have been living together for many years, and some have even already started families, I realized I wanted to assist them in creating a special ceremony. No longer are there stipulations on true love…” We don’t judge. We love, and we serve.

Pastor Ken offers all types of weddings including non-denominational, inter-faith, non-religious, and even ceremonies for those who are spiritual in their own unique and personal way.

Among the many other amenities of having Pastor Ken officiate your wedding such as personality, value, and professionalism, you will also enjoy the peace of mind and extremely economical packages offered that will afford you the flexibility to focus on creating an even more beautiful day. Also, because Jo-Ann works full time for our brides and grooms behind the scenes we guarantee unparalleled excellence, promptness in correspondence, and commitment to you.

Pastor Ken & Jo-Ann have worked very hard to earn the reputation and distinction of The Maryland Wedding Officiant, and exceptional choice for any couple on their special day.
