About Living Grace Pastoral Services
Hi. I’m Ellen, a Georgia native, wife of 32 years, mom of two grown children, 2 dogs, and 4 cats, and owner of Living Grace Pastoral Services. While I was raised in the big city of Atlanta, I love living in the country with my menagerie. I’m ordained with the Baptist church and have been in ministry for 22 years, serving as a healthcare chaplain. Before God called me to ministry I was a wedding photographer. I loved capturing the day on film and being a part of the couple’s big day. After several years in the industry, I learned all the pitfalls and things that could go wrong. I tried to head off issues I foresaw long before they became actual problems.
Now as a wedding minister/officiant, I see my job in much the same way. It is my job to capture the couple’s vision for their ceremony and put it on paper, then bring that written ceremony to life. Living Grace Pastoral Services wants the wedding ceremony to capture what the couple envisioned for their special day. I want to capture the hope, love, dreams, prayers, and plans they have today, then years from now they can look back on their wedding and smile with a love that is stronger and deeper than they ever imagined.
Living Grace Pastoral Services loves romance, and flowers, and wedding cake, and good-looking guys in tuxedos…but most of all the hope and joy that we see in a couple’s eyes as they start this greatest adventure called marriage. Cheers to all you lovers-the future is yours.
