Stephanie and I are so grateful to you and the service you provided for us and our families. Thank you so much! God Bless. ˜Marcella & Stephanie, January 2017

Andrea wrote the most beautiful vows for our wedding ceremony. She learned "our story," and cared so deeply about what we had been through to find each other. Andrea was the best minister for our celebration of love and marriage equality. Thank you! ˜Alise & Yhaddie, November 2016  

Thank you again for officiating our wedding. It was a pleasure to work with you. ˜Anna & Nick, September 2016

Awakening JOY Ministries, LLC Reviews

Reverend Andrea Sassa Archuleta is the primary minister for weddings and ceremonies, and for spirituality counseling and life coaching at Awakening JOY Ministries®.

As a Multi Denominational Minister, Andrea honors all faiths and traditions. Andrea happily joins with you to create your personal wedding ceremony, baptism or memorial ceremony, and rituals for all of your life transitions. Be assured, Andrea never uses pre-scripted ceremonies. Your ceremony is guaranteed to be personal and meaningful because Andrea creates it just for YOU. 


There is tremendous power in allowing Andrea to create a personal ceremony or ritual for you. Andrea takes the time to learn the exact ceremony details that are important to you, she discerns your intentions. Being clear about your intentions, your ceremony is a defining point in your life - it creates an energy that "grows" your future.  

Here's how - A wedding ceremony joins two people in partnership. But, what does it mean to each person to be in that partnership? What expectations does each person have of the other living day-to-day in the commitment of their partnership? The answers to these and many other questions become the details of the wedding ceremony. These details are written into the personalized vows and ring exchange ritual, and are the symbols - like candles or roses, setting the wedding ceremony's mood. Every element of the ceremony is creatively crafted to affirm the couple's intentions. The wedding ceremony is then an amazing moment that literally lays the path for the future!

Harness the power of having your own personal, intimate, and unique ceremony created by Andrea! Whatever your ceremony - whether to celebrate your wedding or vow renewal, heal grief, honor a life transition, welcome a new baby or child, release a divorce or separation - allow your ceremony to be the amazing experience it is meant to be.
