Welcome to Appalachian Life Rituals

Making marriage easy and affordable, the Appalachian way.

About Us

Appalachian Life Rituals was founded in 2022 on the belief that in today’s constantly changing world, more and more people are looking for alternatives for traditional or religious wedding ceremonies. At Appalachian Life Rituals, we work hard to offer personalized marriage officiation with convenience and transparency. We understand the difficulty of juggling the demands of daily life, that’s why we’re committed to making the process affordable, convenient, and easy; the Appalachian way. Our wedding officiant is David L Shaffer (pictured at right.) He has been ordained with Universal Life Church and Monastery (see link below) since 2007. We are registered with the State of West Virginia and Ohio as an officiant. Although providing an affordable wedding officiant is our primary goal, we offer so much more. Astrology is a more recent endeavor and we also offer astrological star charts at competitive prices. Our business will be expanding over the coming months to include homemade products like soy candles, incense, herbal remedies, and teas. Browse our current products and stay tuned for additional services and products to be announced in the future!
