Andy Mahaney

The Wedding Pastor

I'm moving back home to the St. Louis, Missouri Metro Area in November, 2024! 
Video Coming Soon!

About Me

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I know that it is a very exciting time for you.

My goal is to work with you to create a ceremony that truly reflects who you are as a couple. Right after the ceremony is over and you have a few minutes alone, I want you to look at one another and say, "That ceremony was totally us!"

I have had the honor of officiating more than 800 weddings and I believe that no two have been the same. Each couple is unique. When we work together, we will find ways to make the ceremony personal as it captures what makes you who you are together. 

Please don't hesitate to send an e-mail to or text me (609-222-5668) and include the date of your ceremony. We will go from there. 

Thanks for stopping by my site!

Brad and I received so many compliments on how touching and personal our wedding ceremony was. Apparently, we made several friends and family members cry with joy as we made our pledges to each other. The wedding ceremony Andy wrote was customized to our personalities, and incorporated precious things Brad and I said about each other. It really meant so much to us to have such an honest, loving and personal ceremony on our wedding day. Our families are very important to us both, and we love our friends as dearly as we love our family. Andy's ceremony made everyone at our wedding feel like they were a part of our family. 
Our wedding ceremony was so perfect, I couldn't think to change a thing! I have to admit, I didn't know what to expect, but everything you said was perfect! Our family and friends were dying to know how we found you. I'll be sure to recommend you to anyone I know who's tying the knot!

You need only meet Andy to like him. If you're looking for someone to marry you who is warm, caring, thoughtful, genuine -- and in such a way that you know it immediately upon first shaking his hand -- Pastor Andy is your man. He took the time to get to know us and beautifully blended his knowledge of ceremony and tradition with a focus that was all about us. Andy took our words and wove them into a ceremony that told our story, reflected on what brought us together, shared what we love about one another and why we were marrying, and intimated what made our unity special and unique. Beyond that, Andy also brought a true sense of comfort and calm to our ceremony. During our reception and in the weeks following our wedding, we have heard from so many friends and loved ones that our ceremony was the most moving and intimate that they have ever experienced. That warms our hearts to hear. But the true testament to the gift that Andy gave us -- above all else -- is that that's exactly how my wife and I feel. Andy made our ceremony. And for us, we know it's a springboard for so many wonderful things to come in a lifetime of happiness, learning and adventure. Would we recommend Pastor Andy? Absolutely. In fact, we've already sent a couple his way and we will do so again, and again, and again. Thank you so much, Andy.

We could not ask for a better ceremony, Andy totally rocked it! My guests loved him also, and couldn't believe it when we told them we had just met him. He was personable, and made us both comfortable the whole time... and LAUGH during the ceremony! Which was a total bonus for me! I have nothing but good things to say, and would highly recommend him to anyone.. and I will.


Thank you again Andy!

Andy was truly wonderful to work with, he knew just what to say! He got to know us through a short form. He is very, very good at what he does! I am constantly getting compliments on how nice the ceremony was. I will continue to recommend him to all brides I run across in the future. I can't wait to get my wedding video to relive it. :)  he rocks, he's the bomb, everyone should hire him, they won't regret it.

We would like to give our highest endorsement to Andy Mahaney for being our wedding pastor. Andy has a remarkable ability to capture the essence of a relationship in his wedding service. Our guests were in awe of the way in which he was able to describe the two of us and what the day meant to everyone in attendance.  We could not have been any more impressed with his demeanor, delivery, and genuine sincerity in officiating our ceremony. Andy created an atmosphere that truly reflected how special a day it was for us. We will be forever grateful to Andy for his contribution to our wedding day.

Chrissy & Mark



From the beginning of our wedding planning process until the day of our wedding, we were thrilled with Andy’s involvement in our ceremony. We had a very specific idea of how we envisioned our ceremony, and had many questions about the presentation. Andy was willing to thoroughly discuss and explore different options, and collaboratively wrote our ceremony. Most importantly, he honored our requests and included details from our conversations about our relationship. We continue to hear praises about the personalization of our ceremony, and how our ceremony was the “most beautiful they had ever seen”. Our wedding day was truly exceptional because of you…Thank you so much Andy!


Nicole & Josh



Pastor Andy Mahaney was such an amazing officiant for our wedding! From the first meeting he was very professional and easy to work with! He had a lot of great ideas, and helped us develop a vision for our wedding that was everything we dreamed of!

Our families come from different religious backgrounds and Pastor Mahaney sought to incorporate some of each family’s beliefs (as well as ours) into the ceremony. We had so many guests come up to us after the wedding, and even to this day letting us know how much they enjoyed him!

Thank you so much Pastor Mahaney for making our day even more memorable and fantastic than we could have ever dreamed!
