Meet your officiant!

Meet Do! She will officiate your wedding <3

I’m Theodora Walschots, please call me Do (pronounced doe). I am the seventh child of a wonderful big family who immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands, where I grew up. I moved to the United States when I was 20 eventually landing in East Grand Rapids. I have traveled quite a bit, circling the earth 5 times, living in Japan twice, Canada, Chicago, Detroit, but I still think of the Netherlands as my home and love to visit. I have a degree from Oakland University in Psychology, with a one year masters and a minor in Communications. I’ve also studied world religions and have a keen interest in all people. My work has been in the creative field of advertising and film, both as talent and a stylist/hair and makeup artist. I have 2 of the greatest children, a son 16, and a daughter 21. I decided to become an officiant due to my belief that all loving committed couples should be able to marry under circumstances aside of any theological boundaries. My experience in public speaking, and genuine caring of loving people has led me to officiate many worthy loving couples who have chosen to marry.
