Petit Cadeau ministries

A Gift of the Stars

In June 1978, a couple wed in a hurry under circumstances that did not allow the bride to follow family tradition. Twenty-five years later, with hopes of fulfilling the bride's family traditions surrounding marriage, Petit Cadeau Ministries was born, also in a hurry. The bride's family traditions were still not met but wonderful memories were made from a small gift, or Petit Cadeau, from daughter to parents.

With countless weddings for family and friends under her belt, Reverend Jessica Winter opened her services to the public in 2016. Whether you are interested in an intimate affair or a grand celebration; a ceremony steeped in ritual or natural spirituality; a destination wedding or something closer to home, Rev Winter is happy to share her "Petit Cadeau" with you.

Offering custom Secular, Interfaith, Same-Sex, Cultural, Civil, & Elopement ceremonies to suit your beliefs. Rev Winter was ordained as a Universal Unitarian Minister in 2003.

Universal Ministries "is a nondenominational church founded in the truth of accepting the rights of all to follow their own personal beliefs without our intervention." It is "a truly independent nondenominational church with nondenominational ordination that complies with the laws of all States."

Rev Winter's personal belief is that the gift of love should be shared by all and recognized by all.
