Meet Your Minister

Virginia Gustke

Ordained Minister and Owner of Sunshine Ceremony

Ordained Minister, Virginia GraumannI am a celebrant located in Bellingham, Washington, specializing in secular and non-secular celebrations of life and love.

What does that mean?

I wish to provide unique and beautiful ceremonies for all walks of life. Whether you are religiously inclined, atheist or agnostic, same-sex or straight, I would like to ensure that YOUR big day is perfect.

I am ordained by the Universal Life Church, an interfaith and non-denominational ministry. The ULC embraces a diversity of beliefs, the most important of which is that ‘each individual has the privilege and responsibility to determine what is right for him — as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others.’

To further quote ULC: ‘We do not stand between you and your God… Be competent, be proficient, be cooperative, love your fellow man. To be humble, to be honest, to be moral, to live positively, to be what we profess. This is a universal belief.’

It is by these beliefs that I am able to write and legally officiate weddings in the state of Washington.
