Dr. Kimber Lee Wilkes is truly a professional in her field. As an ordained Non-denominational Minister for over 17 years, Dr. Wilkes has a very calming approach to marriage, and knows how to help a Bride and Groom feel relaxed and comfortable on this most stressful day. Her warm smile and cheerful demeanor give the ceremony a feeling that the couple have known her for years.
Dr. Wilkes believes that every ceremony should be created especially for and reflect each couples tastes and beliefs. Every ceremony is a joyous occasion and should be treated as such. Nicknamed "The Minister to the Stars", Dr. Wilkes has performed ceremonies with different celebrities at many locations, including hotels, backyards, beaches, churches, parks, banquet facilities, gazebos, underwater, and even in a hot air balloons or two.
The Los Angeles Times and the Daily News have written numerous articles on her abilities over the years and she was a regular on the television show, "Here Comes the Bride". Dr. Wilkes also has a private counseling service and works with individuals and couples with pre and post marital counseling. Her philosophy is that she would like her couples to start off with a clean slate, rather than go into marriage with concerns.
Dr. Wilkes can assist in orchestrating the rehearsal and will work closely with other Ministers, Priests and Rabbis to co-officiate. She also offers a marriage license service that directly provides the Bride and Groom with their marriage license.

What Makes My Services Special:
As a Non-Denominational Officiant , I service the needs of couples who are inter-faith or not associated with one particular denomination. With a Masters in Psychology and a Doctorate in Theology, I have the ability and insight to add in the different traditions and ethnic values into the ceremony. I believe in a very elegant, warm and personalized ceremony, working with the couple to create the words that best represent their ideas and lifestyle. A complimentary consultation is offered so we can get to know each other and review sample ceremonies, ranging from contemporary to spiritual, to traditional.
Each ceremony is created especially for you - no two ceremonies are alike. I feature Personalized Vows; a Rose Exchange for the Bride and groom, and parents; a Unity Candle; and drinking of the wine or breaking of the glass, also the bowl of blessings, which has become my trademark. I can also add to the ceremony by translating in a couple's native tongue.
For those who want something simple but elegant, I can perform civil and/ or immediate ceremonies. You can get married today, without standing in line or taking off of work to obtain your marriage license!
