Tree of Life Wedding Officiant

All are Welcome at the Tree of Life

Southern Elegance Events owner, Anne Heath, became a Marriage Celebrant with the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2018, through the Chesterfield County Court, so that she could sign the marriage certificate when a friend or family member was to perform the ceremony but was unable to acquire a one time license.  Anne is also Ordained through Universal Life Ministries (ULC) and American Marriage Ministries (AMM) for weddings in other states that accept these certifications.  Since becoming an officiant many of her couples have requested that she not only coordinate their wedding, but to also perform the ceremony. She has performed 100's of ceremonies for couples around the Commonwealth, and in 2021 Tree of Life Wedding Officiant was created.
