Minneapolis wedding officiant Rev Coleman, for a chapel with a Minnesota wedding

Your Minnesota Wedding Ceremony

Like my father, a retired United Church of Christ minister, I have an open and welcoming spirituality. I am an ordained Anglican minister, and have been designing and performing nondenominational, interfaith, and nonreligious wedding ceremonies for over a decade. 

I believe that every person has a caring, warm, and generous nature, which is a reflection of God, who is also caring, warm, and generous. I embrace people of all faiths, as well as those who are nonreligious, and I frequently perform ceremonies for couples with different spiritual backgrounds.

I have now officiated more than 600 wedding ceremonies in the Twin Cities area, encompassing a wide array of faiths and situations. My experience and my knowledge of wedding sites and professionals in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area make me uniquely qualified to design a ceremony that will be personal and meaningful for you and your family.

Tomkin and Julie

I'd like to introduce you
to my bride, Julie!
We were married in April '08
in a wonderful, touching ceremony,
in which my father presided. Our Golden Retriever, Quinn, is on the left, and a friend's dog is on the right (we love both cats and dogs!)


I was born in Mankato, MN, and raised in Hibbing and St. Louis Park. My wife and I now live in the Lex-Ham neighborhood of St. Paul, near Lexington and Summit Avenues. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Carleton College in Northfield, MN, and a Masters degree from Northern Illinois University, and then was ordained as an Anglican minister. Thus I follow in my father’s footsteps, working as a nondenominational chaplain and ministering to diverse groups, always respecting their traditions and beliefs.

For more than a decade, I have helped couples ensure that their special day is exactly how they want it to be, and I would love to do the same for you.

Proud member of PFLAG as well as the Association Professional Chaplains.
