"Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105
I am Reverend Stacy Brand-Lesley, originally from the South Bend area and now reside in Westville and serve the Michigan City, La Porte, and Valparasio area (other areas may require travel fees: see Service Area Tab). No matter where I go, my heart belongs to Northwest Indiana.
I deeply appreciate and understand that not all couples are the same and bring so many different factors to the table when planning a wedding. I can help you incorporate these special circumstances into your ceremony or special day so that you can relax and enjoy your day.
I was raised in both the Catholic Church and in the United Methodist Church as I came from a religiously blended family. As an adult I felt the calling to become a wedding minister and obtained ordainination through the American Fellowship Church.
It is my intention to join those who love each other in the bond of matrimony without judging them for their religious convictions, belief systems, or lifestyles. I also perform interfaith and civil ceremonies. It is not my intention to start a church, however I can offer pre-marital services based on societal norms and life experience if the couple desires.
I also offer Commitment Ceremonies, Vow Renewal, Baby Naming and Dedication, and House Blessings.
