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.
We guide couples through the process of creating a wedding ceremony that is right for them – one that they will always remember, reflecting this very special step into their life-long commitment. We also offer memorial services, milestone birthday ceremonies, along with ceremonies to mark any milestone-of-passage in your life.
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.
