Nondenominational Weddings by Rev. Maggie Duval

Austin, TX and environs

Rev. Maggie Duval is an ordained (Spiritual Science), nondenominational minister specializing in deeply spiritual, nontraditional and traditional (or a blend of the two) customized wedding ceremony services. I also have expertise in weaving in rituals, both traditional, those you design, those I design, and those we collaborate on.

 

Your ceremony is custom-tailored to your needs, personality, and vision.

 

I am a strong proponent of marriage equality. I’ve officiated for elopements, renewal of vows, and blended family ceremonies, and prenuptial ceremonies, as well as house blessings, product launches, funerals/wakes/memorials, baptisms, naming ceremonies - anything that begs for ritual honoring.   More...

Yes, yours, my love, is the right human face,

I in my mind had waited for this long.

Seeing the false and searching the true,

Then I found you as a traveler finds a place

Of welcome suddenly amid the wrong

Valleys and rocks and twisting roads.

But you, what shall I call you?

A fountain in a waste.

A well of water in a country dry.

Or anything that's honest and good, an eye

That makes the whole world bright.

Your open heart simple with giving, give the primal deed.

The first good world, the blossom, the blowing seed.

The hearth, the steadfast land, the wandering sea,

Not beautiful or rare in every part

But like yourself, as they were meant to be.
