Bob Javorsky, Founder / Licensed Minister


Completing a two year Unity Practitioner Training Program, in addition to graduating from Unity Chaplaincy School, I received my license to officiate weddings in 1999 from the state of Ohio.  Since then, I have been a celebrant to countless ceremonies, both traditional and non-traditional, large and small, spiritual and civil in Northeast Ohio, including Cleveland, Akron and surrounding areas.


I truly enjoy meeting couples and helping them realize their wedding ceremony dreams. As the founder of Our Wedding Officiant, it’s my philosophy that each couple should have a ceremony that suits their beliefs and reflects their commitment to each other. That’s why each wedding we officiate is unique to the people reciting the vows.


We offer nondenominational spiritual ceremonies as well as civil ceremonies with no mention of religion or deities; and neither offer nor require pre-wedding classes.  We hold no prejudices and will marry any couple with a valid marriage license.


In addition to vows and style of ceremony, I can provide direction in other areas of your special day. I have relationships with many wedding vendors, florists, bakers, caterers, rental companies, musicians, DJs and event venues.


Together we will create a ceremony to suit you and your fiancé, one that will be unique to you and you alone. I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your wedding day.

Don Bernardo, Licensed Minister


A wedding ceremony should reflect the desires and personality of the couple being united.  Together we will develop a ceremony that will reflect your hopes and dreams for this special day. 


My training and experience as an actor, director and producer in professional and community theatre, and my extensive background in special event planning has contributed to my ability to work collaboratively with you to creatively tailor your wedding ceremony. 


Whether you already know exactly what you want, or need some help and guidance to create your personal and special ceremony, my attention to detail will help ensure a relaxing, stress-free ceremony that you and your guests will enjoy, and that you will remember forever.


I am equally comfortable ministering in traditional and non-traditional settings, whether indoor or outdoor (including historical or themed events) and in small or large gatherings.

Diane Q. Klann, Licensed Minister


I am thrilled to bring a full range of life experiences to the team of Our Wedding Officiant.

As a mother and grandmother, I offer compassion, wisdom, nurturing and feminine guidance in fulfilling your ceremony expectations.  My strong sense of leadership and organizational skills, gleaned from over 30 years as a business owner of a graphic design firm, have made me very dependable and responsible; in addition to having a keen eye for detail and creativity.

I have performed in front of live audiences my entire life, as a dancer, and have been on television, radio and the silver screen. I am comfortable speaking in front of large or small audiences; delivering sermons to tiny congregations or lobbying and testifying for human rights on Capitol Hill.

I bring a sense of peace, serenity, quiet energy and inspiration to a gathering. As a spiritual director and licensed officiant I support and celebrate authenticity and delight in finding people who know how to be true to themselves. I rejoice in individuals' dreams, goals, vows and commitments.

It is
your wedding, your day, your celebration, your way and my role is to guide and serve you well. It will be an honor to help you shape a wedding ceremony that will applaud and commemorate the wonder and joy of your new life and love unfolding.

Vivian Miller, Licensed Minister


My passion in life is to serve my community and provide a service that produces joy and happiness.  After attending Capital University and Ursuline College, and working in a stressful job in a law office; I began my spiritual quest with extensive work on myself through long term therapy and inner healing.  My spirituality is of paramount importance to me and in an effort to show up in the world as an evolved human being through my dedication, I have shown up as a kinder human being.  

As a mother of two grown children, and grandmother; I have witnessed and nurtured unique day-to-day life experiences during difficult times.  And always... my spirituality centers me.  

Combining my personal life experiences with my Practitioner training in the Unity Church, I am qualified and would be honored to serve as your officiant.  During my thirty years of work in the judicial system; I have been witness to over five hundred weddings.

I look forward to continuing to be of service to all; however, most importantly as your officiant on your special day.

Bill Scher-Marcus, Licensed Minister


Your marriage ceremony can be traditional, or anything is up to you to decide, and me to fulfill your wishes.  I am excited and honored to be a part of this very special time in people’s lives.  


With a diverse background in formal and informal education in the US and overseas, I’ve enjoyed working and interacting with people of various cultures my entire life.   My professional background, complimented with a Master’s degree in Social Work, extensive speaking in front of congregations and conducting religious services, assures your ceremony will be delivered with ease, confidence, and professionalism.  I received my ordination in June 2008 and my licensed minister designation this past year. 


I believe in the sanctity of marriage and the extension of marriage rights to all consenting adults.  I have been married for nearly 23 years, I am a father of three children, and I am an active member of my community.  My volunteer activities have included Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, and the Hurricane Katrina Relief programs.


I welcome the opportunity to discuss your upcoming marriage.

Brian Diehl, Licensed Minister


First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding!  I realize that there are seemingly countless details for you to consider when putting together your most special day.  It is my goal to make the planning easier, by assisting you in the creation of your perfect ceremony, as you envision. 


I will always remember the first ceremony I performed more than ten years ago. Working with the couple to create a ceremony that reflected their personalities, then walking them through to their first kiss as a married couple, was an incredible, life-changing experience for me.


I am a professional actor and an award-winning public speaker with a strong speaking voice and the ability to provide exactly the nuptials you have in mind.  It would be an honor to help you create an unforgettable wedding; whether traditional, spiritual, religious or themed. 


I welcome your questions and inquiry, so we can begin the planning!
