About

I have been a minister for 25 years, and a Wedding Officiant since June of 2000. During that time I have performed nearly a thousand wedding ceremonies, officiated at dozens of memorials and funerals, and blessed a few babies (and one swimming pool)! I have offered a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, and spiritual counsel.

I do my best to follow The Golden Rule. I strive to love fully, to laugh often, and to see the best in people.

I don’t represent any church, and I don’t preach any dogma (except the aforementioned Golden Rule). I believe that all paths lead to the same place, and when I do make it to church I attend a Unity-based church in Sacramento.

I feel fortunate to have touched the lives of many people; they have blessed me beyond measure. I look forward to continuing on this path for many more years.

When I am not writing and performing ceremonies, you will generally find me with a camera in hand, taking photos of parties, pets and pretty places! I have a photography website and an accessible travel blog; I am always dreaming of my next travel adventure. And I am crazy-in-love with my granddog Kilo!

So that’s a little about me – the serious and the fun sides. Now it’s your turn.

I’d love to hear about your wedding plans, your love story, and your vision for your long and happy marriage. Let’s connect and talk about working together to create your unique and personalized wedding ceremony.

You can reach me by phone at (916)716-8374 or email me at RevJeriMurphy@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you!
