Who is Stan?

My name is Dr. Stan Pokras, and I want to officiate your wedding ceremony!

My day job is a health policy research scientist, but I have enjoyed going to weddings ever since I was a child. In fact, I was always impressed by how much work went into the wedding ceremony and how much fun the officiant had during the ceremony. As luck would have it, a very close family member was getting married several years ago, and I suggested that I would love to officiate. The couple agreed, I became licensed, and the rest is history.

After realizing how rewarding it felt to make someone's special day a memorable one, I decided to apply many of the skills from my day job to officiating weddings. I work with my wife, who is my business partner, to provide you with full-service officiating needs to make your wedding day as amazing and exciting as you are!

What Else?

I am an ordained and fully-licensed officiant in the State of Ohio and have officiated over two dozen weddings during the past three years. The Covid-19 pandemic helped me appreciate how grateful I am for my own marriage, and so I decided to help provide those special moments to other couples.

Personalized & Individualized

I genuinely love the experience of uniting couples through matrimony.

As your wedding officiant, I will have an open mind, positive attitude, and conduct myself professionally, so that your wedding day is as extraordinary as you.

I welcome various styles of matrimony, including same-sex, interfaith, and non-denominational weddings.

I believe in LOVE, and I want you to be ecstatic with my officiating services. I can perform services in just about any venue that you choose - from the comfort of your own home to large, private venues.

I can officiate simple elopements or extravagant ceremonies.
