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.
Lovejoy Weddings provides warm, romantic ceremonies to ALL couples who wish to marry. My sister, Libby Lovejoy and I have officiated over 200 secular ceremonies, from intimate elopements to large destination weddings, and strive to make each one unforgettable.
Holding a Diploma in Secular Ceremonies, I offer custom services for all life-cycle events from baby-naming ceremonies to memorial services, with service lengths from just a few minutes or longer. It’s your and your family’s day and event – make sure the ceremony you need is written with your requirements in mind!
