Reverend Larry GoydaCongratulations to the two of you on your engagement! My name is Rev. Larry D. Goyda and I am a Pittsburgh wedding officiant who has been blessed with the opportunity to officiate at approximately 1700 wedding ceremonies since 1994. As a Pittsburgh-based, non-denominational wedding officiant / minister, my approach is to help you get married by conducting a wedding ceremony that celebrates the commitment between two people who love one another, by reflecting the values, beliefs, and meaningful aspects of your relationship. It is important that your wedding ceremony be an authentic expression of you as individuals and as a couple, and I will assist you every step of the way.

I believe that it is important for a couple to be comfortable with both their wedding minister and their wedding ceremony. My style is open, caring, and laid back, yet detail-oriented. Many couples find this approach appealing, making it easier for us to work together. I will make recommendations, which many couples choose to follow, but these recommendations are only guidelines and are certainly not etched in stone.

Quite often, couples who come to me to be their wedding officiant have different religious traditions and ask me to incorporate both religions into their particular ceremony. I am pleased to perform weddings that blend two faiths or go in a direction that better meets how the two of you view life, the world and your relationship. Though there are differences - some great and some minor - in the words, traditions, texts, practices, and cultures of the world, in the end, we are all seeking the greater light of life, and a beautiful wedding ceremony can be built around those universal beliefs.

I am here to help you celebrate your love and commitment, and will do so in a manner that brings the most meaning and joy to your ceremony. I will conduct your ceremony with the utmost consideration and respect, and with the intention that what is reflected to all in attendance is the love that binds your union.

The Meaningful Marriages website is designed for brides and grooms who desire to be married in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania or the surrounding area of Western PA by a Pittsburgh wedding minister, a nondenominational minister, officiant, celebrant or reverend. Some folks even start out looking to be married by a Judge or Justice of the Peace but end up deciding to go with Meaningful Marriages. We are here to help you with all aspects of your wedding ceremony including wedding vows, interfaith/nondenominational wedding ideas and wedding vendors in the Pittsburgh area. With the help of Rev. Larry Goyda, you can have the perfect wedding ceremony to begin your marriage.

I wish to congratulate the bride and groom on your engagement and your upcoming Greater Pittsburgh area wedding ceremony. Since you're visiting the website of a nondenominational wedding celebrant, you're clearly in the process of planning your wedding ceremony. How far have you gotten? Have you settled on one of the most important aspects of your wedding ceremony, the person who will be your wedding officiant, minister or clergy?

I take pride in the fact that each wedding ceremony I perform in the Greater Pittsburgh area is a celebration of two people in love. Together with the bride and groom, I create a ceremony that suits the style and religion of the couple to be wed. I have been performing wedding ceremonies in western pa for more than 15 years and know that I can perform a nondenominational, interfaith, wedding ceremony that you'll be happy to look back on for years to come.

Many of the couples that I wed do not belong to a church in the Pittsburgh area, or do not attend church at all. This is not a problem. As a nondenominational, interfaith wedding officiant, I am pleased to marry pittsburg brides and grooms from all faiths, religions and races.

Most of the weddings I perform are in Allegheny County, which is, of course, where Pittsburgh is located. However, I have also performed wedding ceremonies in Westmorland County, Butler County, and Beaver County. No matter where you are planning on having your wedding, please consider me, Rev. Larry Goyda, as your wedding minister.

I know how important your wedding ceremony is and I look forward to helping you have the perfect wedding ceremony to celebrate your love!
