Tom and Amy by front door

Wedding Officiator 



Tom and Amy Hamel were the previous innkeepers of The Hexagon House for nearly 10 years. It was during this time that My West Michigan Wedding was born as Tom saw the need for a professional, ordained officiant willing to serve the couples who wanted to have their marriage ceremony along Michigan's West Coast.


Before becoming an innkeeper, Tom was involved in church development for 25 years in both part and full-time capacities. His responsibilities provided 30 years of public speaking experience in front of all types of audiences. He was ordained with the Church of God in Indiana, but worked as a lay minister for several different denominations including Lutheran, Methodist and non-denominational churches, as well as an international church consulting firm. This experience helps him assist couples with different faith backgrounds.


Finding the right person to marry you is an important decision – after all, this person will have a huge influence on the tone of your wedding ceremony . You want to make sure that you find someone who is willing to perform the kind of wedding ceremony you are envisioning, who will respect your opinions and help you design a ceremony that is authentic for you.

Tom is our recommendation, and he's our partner in officiating weddings at the Hexagon House. His services are included in our wedding packages.
