Rev. Jennifer Donohue
I have been blessed to live in Traverse City for most of my life, except for 4 years out east in Cape Cod, Ma. I’m extremely active, love anything to do with the outdoors…all year round!. I’m a cyclist, runner, and have horses. I love meeting new people and experiencing new things! My children are all grown and successfully on their own, so my life now has allowed me to do what my passions are, and one of them…. Marrying Couples. I love the excitement and I’m passionate about what I do. Seeing the love that two people share when I meet with them the first time, I love to bring those little things into the big things of the ceremony! To me your wedding is not just another wedding, it’s yours, and it’s important! I can customize your wedding to your need, and location.
Most of all! I want you and your guests to laugh, to think, and maybe even shed a tear of happiness, and no matter how simple or involved you want your personal experience, I want it to be the BEST first day of your NEW LIFE TOGETHER!
