Scottsdale Arizona’s premier wedding officiant from backyard to the Biltmore. Serving all couples looking to unite in marriage.
In 2018, I performed 43 weddings with the most amazing couples. Each different from the last. It is my goal to make sure everyone is comfortable. Of those 43 weddings 5 were employees of Mayo Clinic.
Here we are heading into Fall 2019 and I have had the honor to work with 50 couples already. My schedule books up and some days are more popular than others (numerology, anniversary of first date or family able to attend.)

Ready to see if Amy is available for your date, then we will schedule a time to talk via phone to see if we are a good fit. Prefer to Elope, Amy has an office in North Scottsdale and can make that happen easily with your own witnesses or she can bring some in.
It is your day of wedded bliss and let’s make sure it goes together smoothly. Amy has wonderful resources she has personally worked with in the Phoenix area.
“I want to hear about your wedding day vision. Let’s see if we are a good fit to share your love story.” Reverend Amy Stephens
Due to my schedule the best way to start our connection is to select the Connect with Amy button below and provide me some details.
AMY STEPHENS ...
I performed my first wedding for a friend in May of 2015 and enjoyed sharing that space of acknowledging the love between the couple. I incorporate humor if needed to lighten the mood. The ceremonies that blend families are so nurturing, I like giving the children a role in the ceremony to show they are part of this special day and the joining of both sides.
As a yoga instructor of well over 20 years, I have a calm yet authoritative voice that keeps the couple actively engaged in the moment and settle into the ceremony instead of letting their nerves get the best of them.
My goal is to allow the couple to feel comfort and find strength, so their guests can be witnesses of their love.
I am legit and respect the space to hold the couple in a loving time in front of their friends and family. If you decide to elope at my office in North Scottsdale, I hold space for you to feel nurtured in my surroundings.
My background consists of:
BFA in Interior Design
Teaching yoga, 1998
Healing Touch Practitioner, 2001
Certificate of Ministry, 2015
Certified Sustainable Building Advisor
Former Tour Guide at Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home
In my business life I enjoy networking and I have several resources (wedding planners, photographers and DJs, Bakers) that I can recommend for your ceremony as well if you are interested. Since we have all worked together at past ceremonies, your ceremony moves smoothly from one aspect to the next.
FUN THINGS ABOUT ME:
Spicy and flavorful foods are the best!
I don't know words to songs and I am notorious for making up words. Which makes everyone around me laugh!
Only child, enjoy quiet time and when I dance I will dance to the Electric Slide and anything else from the 90's with some base.
Moved to Arizona in 2004 and it was the best thing that I ever did for myself.
Originally a Midwestern gal (and LOVE meat and potatoes!)
Thanks so much for learning about me and I look forward to learning about your Love Story and your exciting adventure together as an engaged couple to a married couple!
