About Rev. Leslie Becknell Marx
Creating meaningful weddings that reflect your love...
I am a Unitarian Universalist minister, and my congregation is the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ashland, OR.  Unitarian Universalism is a religion which honors wisdom from varied religious traditions and spiritual practices.  Striving to create a world where all people experience peace, justice, and equity is central to Unitarian Universalism.   (more information at www.uua.org)

I’ve been performing weddings for over 15 years, originally as a lay minister in Atlanta, GA and now as an ordained minister.  Officiating at weddings is a true joy for me.  I attended seminary near Boston at Andover Newton Theological School.  A large part of my studies involved inter-faith work with the Jewish students and faculty of Hebrew College; so inter-faith weddings are one of my specialties.

I am still a bit of a newlywed, married for 3 years. Having planned my own wedding in the last few years, I can relate to what couples are experiencing in the excitement and stress before a wedding.   We are now the proud parents of our baby son, loving the family we have created together.

Couples for whom I have been the wedding officiant describe me as:
  • Warm and friendly
  • Insightful and understanding
  • Organized and efficient but still laid back
  • A dynamic and inspiring speaker
  • Fun to work with
  • "Leslie was a huge help in creating the service just right for us"
  • "We thought the counseling would be boring and hard, but it was actually fun and very helpful"
  • "It seemed she knew us better than we knew ourselves sometimes"
