Our Story

beauty and fun.

Premier Wedding Pastors KC was born when a local Kansas City pastor (Ryan Pelton) noticed two problems. One, typical wedding officiants didn't offer couples premier wedding ceremonies/services capturing their unique personalities and values. Ceremonies were often canned, rote, and lacked beauty and fun.

Two, local churches/pastors typically weren't hospitable toward couples not part of their congregations. Ryan and his team of Wedding Pastors are committed to solving both of these problems. 

Premier Wedding Pastors KC is committed to crafting a wedding ceremony of your dreams. Beautful and fun!
