Reverend Andrew comes to us with a wide variety of work and life experiences, having spent time as a summer camp counselor, adviser, event manager, coach, ski fitter, bike mechanic, community organizer, and handyman. With all those different titles Andrew is comfortable wearing many different hats and being in front of crowds large and small.

A Minneapolis native, Andrew has a passion for the outdoors; biking, swimming, canoeing, camping and cross-country skiing are among the ways that he finds peace and harmony in nature.

Andrew understands how special your wedding day is and will bring his patience, leadership and calm nature to help make it the best it can be. He believes that love and commitment should take the shape of those involved and is thrilled to be a part of ceremonies ranging from the traditional to the eclectic.

We used Andrew Nilson as our officiant and he did an amazing job!! We had several people comment on how well he did! I love that Affordable I Do’s helps you write the ceremony how you want it and gives you several examples to use. I would definitely recommend Andrew and Affordable I Do’s to officiate!

Hi Andrew!

Mark and I just wanted to say thank you again for being the officiant for our wedding on June 4th! We were very grateful to have you be a part of our ceremony.  Thanks again!

My husband and I were so happy to have Andrew as the officiant for our wedding! Susan does such a great job at making every ceremony unique and personal, and immediately after speaking with her we knew we were going to be able to have the simple, easy-going ceremony that we had been imagining. Andrew was fun and professional, and made us feel comfortable even on such a nerve wracking day! Highly recommend.

Andrew was a great choice for our wedding officiant.  His caring for us shined through his words as he married us on our big day.  Although the rain forced everyone in closely, he did not hesitate, he held his place and looked us in our eyes and made us feel as if we were the most important couple in the world. Family, friends and the two of us were able to relax a little as his words brought us laughter and a few tears throughout the ceremony.  He really summed US up and made us feel like the most important people in the world.”
