About Rev. Samantha McGovern:
After living in Utah and California for most of my life, I joyfully chose to make the New Orleans area my home since 2002. The city simply energizes me!
I have been a spiritual seeker and minister for nearly three decades and am ordained by the Universal Life Church.
I am registered in all Louisiana Parishes including Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Tammany Parishes to legally perform your wedding in New Orleans and surrounding areas. Additionally, I am licensed to officiate marriages in California and Arkansas.
Whether you plan to elope, have a small wedding or an elabotate wedding, I will do everything I can to help you make your day exactly what you dream of!
I am happy to perform nondenominational and interfaith ceremonies, as it is my firm belief that we are all under -- and share -- one higher power.
And finally, as I honor LOVE, I do not hold bias -- All Loving Couples are Welcome!
