Andrew J. Vaughn was endorsed by The Humanist Society as a Humanist Celebrant in 2015. His goal is to celebrate the human experience in his work as a celebrant. He provides services primarily in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City area, but is willing to travel throughout Iowa and beyond.
I became a celebrant, counselor, and university chaplain because I love helping people make the most of life’s biggest moments. I’m a warm, friendly community builder with loads of onstage experience, so this work comes naturally to me. I spent three decades as a Christian minister before slowly losing my faith, but unless we’re talking about spirituality, even my closest friends can’t really tell the difference. I always believed in the transformative power of love, and I still do.
Custom ceremonies full of personality and depth for the free-spirited, open-minded, atheist, and unchurched. Weddings, funerals, baby welcomings, and other extra-ordinary events. In addition to my endorsement by The Humanist Society, I’m also a graduate of the Celebrant Institute. Inclusive and equality minded, I serve all of New England and am available for some travel.
