Today’s wedding officiant interview is with Reverend Jewel Oslon of Precious Promotions LLC, based in Milwaukee, WI! Enjoy:
Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
As an ordained minister, I honor all races, cultures & ethnic diversities. I respect & understand the spectrum of both religious & non-religious expressions of message. Just as no two couples are the same, no marriage will be the same & your ceremony will be uniquely yours.

How did you get into wedding officiating?
Officiating was a natural path to follow with my upbringing, background & experience.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
I truly appreciate the unique story of each couple that comes to me. One of the most special parts of the process is the Planning Session I have with each couple. It’s a laid back, casual get-together where we plan their ceremony. The ceremony is the heart of the wedding union. I will work with each couple to create a custom & personal ceremony that celebrates and declares their love.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned, and would pass along to other new wedding officiants just getting started?
First: It’s their ceremony. Plain & Simple the best wedding ceremony is not a cookie cutter, fill in the blanks, ceremony.
Second: Get a photo with every couple after the ceremony!
What are your hobbies or non-work-related activities?
I enjoy Photography. I also get quickly absorbed in Web Design. & social media marketing.
I am fortunate to provide Promotions & Marketing services for bands, entertainers, musicians & small businesses.
Any great stories from a wedding you’ve officiated?
There are so many great stories. I’ve had the privilege to unite young couples who graduated from high school a week prior as well as more mature couples who were widowed & found a new love to share their days with.
What advice would you pass along to couples planning their wedding?
#2. Include special elements of personality into your ceremony…& get lots of photos!
Are there any trends that you absolutely love or would love to see brides leave behind?
I truly enjoy the various Unity ceremonies: Candle, Sand, Hand Fasting.
Leave behind the inclusion of any little ones under 3 years old. It just doesn’t work in the ceremony.
