About Rev. Véronique Jewell
In 2000, I was ordained by Reunion Ministries as an interfaith minister. Since then, I have had the honor of officiating mostly weddings but also baptisms and other sacred ceremonies. For your wedding, whether you desire a traditional or non-traditional ceremony, my Catholic upbringing and interfaith training together aid me in weaving scripture, prayer and/or blessings into the ceremony of your dreams. My life in two cultures also helps me to enhance the beauty of your wedding. I also perform non‑religious ceremonies should that be your need. My focus and intention is to offer a unique ceremony where the bride and groom feel heard, understood, cared for and blessed while their guests also feel welcome and included. I do not require any religious commitments prior to the ceremony but will provide counseling and guidance if requested by the couple.
I was born and lived in France until moving to the USA in 1991 where I married my husband, William (also an interfaith minister). We have been settled in Kalamazoo, MI for 14 years after spending time in Westminster, MD and Raleigh, NC. My daughter, Eleonore lives here in town. We have two super dogs, Gizmo and Muffin. In France I worked as a registered nurse and in pharmaceuticals where I also worked in the US. I am certified and teach Yoga at two studios and also teach French at Western Michigan University. My love for gardening keeps me busy and surrounded by beauty.
Somewhere between heartaches and waiting comes another chance to be found by someone who can show you that you are not just an option ~ but the only choice.
