Bear Atwood, D.D.

Congratulations on your engagement!  Planning a wedding is an exciting and busy time. Finding the right officiant is one of the many important decisions you will need to make.

You want your ceremony to be perfect, that means your officiant must be ready to listen, be creative and be an engaging public speaker.  As the officiant at your wedding, I will ensure that you and your guests enjoy a meaningful ceremony that celebrates your love.

I celebrate all loving relationships...

I am an ordained non-denominational Minister and wedding officiant through the Universal Life Church, and can legally perform marriages in the state of Mississippi. I do not practice or preach a specific religion – I follow the creed of the ULC, "Do only that which is right." 

All couples are welcome at Witness to Love Weddings. Enjoy these photos from some of the couples I have married this year.
