Welcome to our new Web site! This is where you can learn more about us. Not only can Muzik For U's DJs play the reception music for your wedding, we also are ordained ministers that can perform the wedding ceremony!
"Why are Muzik For U's disc jockeys also ministers?"
"That's a question we are asked often," Teri Embum, owner of Muzik For U answers. "I started playing music in 1991 at college dances and at parties. Clark joined with me in 1994 when we formed Muzik For U. We've always been religious, but both of us were quiet in our religion. It's not that we're DJs that decided to become ministers, we're people who happened to be disc jockeys that have felt the call to serve."
"Isn't that sacreligious or something? Having the same person who does the ceremony encourage everyone to have fun at the reception? Isn't that kind of unethical (or a conflict of interest)?"
We've heard this one in several forms. Teri chuckles as she explains, "Actually, it's not a conflict of interest to solemnize a wedding, then encourage everyone to join in the celebration of the union of two people. When you think about it, a wedding is meant to be a shared celebration. The bride and groom wish all their friends and family to share in their happiness at the ceremony. Why should that celebration stop at the end of the wedding?"
Why would I want a non-denominational minister to perform our wedding?
Teri's answer is: Not everyone has a church that they attend regularly. And she adds, "I believe that having an unaffiliated minister is beneficial to the bride and groom. Since we're not associated with one specific church, we're not tied down to a 'approved' service. We customize the ceremony for the bride and groom." Just like they customize the music for the events they play.
Do you do other religious ceremonies?
"That's a tough one." Teri smiles, "We'd be happy to perform any services that anyone needs. It's part of the call to service Clark and I feel. But, since we don't have our own physical church location at this time, it can be difficult."
