Wedding planner and officiant Diana Belle performed her first ceremony in December (Photo by Alexis Ruan Photography). The following guest sermon was submitted by ULC officiant Diana Belle.

I had always wondered what it would take to get ordained or how hard it would be, but as we tend to do in life, I put it on the back burner until something inspired me to take action.

Here’s what happened: over the scores of weddings I had helped coordinate, the officiant was always on time. It wasn’t something I worried about. Until suddenly I had to. Out of the blue, I was faced with an officiant running 30 minutes late – which in “wedding time” may as well be half a day. I was left scrambling and trying to figure out what to do.
