My name is Marie Cirner-Steensma. I am a licensed Minister on Mackinac Island. I officiate wedding ceremonies for couples and reside on the island from April through October.

My services include:

  • Non-denominational Weddings
  • Civil Unions
  • Vow Renewals
  • And other Ceremonies as needed



Though I was raised in California, I’ve spent the better part of my life living on Mackinac. The island culture is a beautiful contrast to the hectic pace of everyday life, and Mackinac has shaped my life over the last thirty years. I can’t think of a more beautiful setting in which to be married.I think all ceremonies are beautiful. I have performed a large variety of weddings and vow renewals over the years— be they religious, traditional, contemporary, spiritual: eclectic, or very specific like hand fasting, a sand ceremony, or the cross. Couples may provide a ceremony of their own or choosing or options I’ve collected over the years.I am truly blessed to be on this island, performing ceremonies. With my knowledge of the island and years of wedding officiating you are sure to have a magical day.  Feel free to call or email me with any questions you may have.

In kindness,
