I am Rev. Dr. Renee C. Waun 412-731-2834
(Renee is my nickname, short for Maurine)
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Now… who is going to officiate for that most important component on your special day, the ceremony? I would be happy to help you.
I am a fully ordained and recognized minister and officiant, with credentials earned from an accredited seminary (Pittsburgh Theological Seminary: Master of Divinity in 1982 Magna Cum Laude, and Doctor of Divinity in 1991). I have done hundreds of weddings all over the greater Pittsburgh area, from the small and intimate to the large and grandiose, and am licensed in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Maryland, New York and D.C.
If you are looking for someone who will help you to create a ceremony that reflects who you are as a couple and the uniqueness you would like to convey to your family and friends, I am happy to work with you.
Among the many of weddings I have performed, there have been ceremonies that included many traditions and rituals: Christian, non-denominational, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, pagan, Moslem and secular. The approach I use is: “Your Wedding; Your Way”; which is to say, I do not prescribe any words, doctrines or formats that you must use. I feel that your wedding day speaks of you the couple, and not any particular imposed religious structure.
If you are looking for a ceremony that is more “spiritual” than “religious”, I can provide that for you.
I am familiar with most of the wedding venues in the Pittsburgh area and am willing to travel to your location for the ceremony. Planning is done by meeting with me at my home in the Regent Square area. I do not require pre-marital counseling sessions, although I can provide them by appointment.
Here is a brief YouTube slide presentation showing a few of the weddings I have done.
