ruth ellen hasser wedding officiant

Congratulations on your engagement to be married!

My name is Ruth Ellen Hasser, and I am a Professional Celebrant, Wedding Officiant, and ordained Nondenominational Minister. I serve St. Louis City and its surrounding counties in Missouri, St. Louis Metro East, and nearby Southwestern Illinois counties.

Your Wedding Ceremony– Customized and Personalized

As your Wedding Officiant, I will create a beautiful and personalized ceremony that will be a reflection of your love, your beliefs, your hopes and dreams for a life together. Long or short, formal or informal, secular or spiritual, inter-faith or non-religious, your ceremony will be at the heart of your wedding day.

You will be able to choose your own vows, readings, ceremony choreography, music, and unity ritual. Couples who work with me have final approval over the script for the entire ceremony. And you can count on me to officiate at your ceremony with professionalism, warmth, and joy!

See what couples are saying about me on Wedding Wire  and The Knot.

“I think I can safely say that hiring Ruth was the best decision we made for our wedding. She truly made our ceremony exactly what we wanted it to be.”
