Father Jerry Bellamy spent 12 full years in Seminary training, with ordination as a Catholic Priest, in 1972. He has been serving Santa Barbara, since 1973. He is now a retired Catholic Priest, since 1981. His wonderful wife and children are his joy. He now performs weddings in the capacity of a Non-Denominational Minister for ALL faiths and backgrounds, everywhere in CA. He often works with other Ministers, Rabbis, Imams, Elders, etc. Father Jerry easily finds "common ground" between brides, grooms and families of different religious and cultural backgrounds. Everyone immediately realizes that a true professional is performing the ceremony. Ceremonies often last between 25 and 30 minutes, depending upon the wishes of the couple. As Father Jerry says, "The love we have for each other, makes us holy. Being a religious person, does not automatically make someone holy. Your wedding celebrates how great it is that you love each other." He also speaks Spanish.
