Post 2, getting to know Michelle behind Officially Michelle.

I am a middle school teacher, having spent 6 years with Fort Wayne Community, this year I am teaching virtually for a school in Louisiana so I can spend more time with my family and on my wedding business.

I enjoy creating, be it making quilts, crafting homemade bread, or writing a unique and fully customized wedding ceremony for my clients, I fully enjoy flexing my creative muscles, however what I love most is getting to know people! That is what makes being a wedding officiant so much fun!!! Getting to know my clients has been a great joy to me over the years. I would love to get to know you, and what makes your relationship perfect for you!

I thought it had been a while since I introduced myself. My name is Michelle Batchelder, and I am happily married to my husband Andy, together we had 3 boys Jacob, Wyatt, and Emmett. I am an inclusive Wedding Officiant in New Haven, Indiana, who has been lucky enough to be a small part of couples big days for several years now. While my calendar is filling up, I do have some dates still available and would love to see if I am a good fit for you!

I had a mother of the groom call me midday Friday frantic because she knew her son and future daughter in law wanted to get married this weekend, but they didn't have everything planned out, I assured her that I could officiate and the bride called me to work out the details. They didn't want a big ceremony because they have a HUGE wedding planned in the future, but for various reasons they wanted to do the paperwork ASAP. I love weddings, be it a little bit of paperwork to be done, or a grand ceremony, I am here for it all!
