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 over two decades. I am ordained with the Universal Life Church, and am registered in all Louisiana Parishes including Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Tammany Parishes to legally perform your wedding in New Orleans and surrounding areas.
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.
