Rev. Bhavani Metro

Bhavani Honoroable MentionRev. Bhavani Metro has been an ordained Interfaith Minister of Integral Yoga since 1980.  She and her husband, Charles (Bhagavan), who is also a Minister of Integral Yoga, have led marriage workshops, given many talks on marriage and family life, and always encourage couples to find and respect Goodness and Godness in each other. One of her main beliefs, “Truth is One, Paths are Many” encourages honoring all spiritual traditions.

As a wedding officiant, (her favorite area of service) she personalizes each ceremony. In working with couples, she is able to create a service that reflects their own spiritual paths as well as infusing it with their personalities and values. Even with a simple civil ceremony, she can impart a great joy and celebration.

She especially enjoys serving as a wedding officiant as her belief and commitment to relationships and family is reflected in her own life.  Married for 45 years, with 6 children, 14 grandchildren and 5 generations living and playing within walking distance of her home, she firmly believes in the lifelong vows taken during a marriage ceremony and helps couples find the best and most heartfelt vows to exchange.

She has performed many and varied weddings and enjoys working closely with the couples in planning their ceremony.  No matter what their faith or spiritual beliefs, she seeks to help design the wedding ceremony that is meaningful and significant for them.

Each wedding is unique and fabulous, full of hopes and dreams of the future. She brings all of it together to reflect the couple’s vision of beauty and joy and celebration on their most special day together.


My wife and I were so pleased and happy to have found Rev. Bhavani to organize and perform our wedding ceremony!  She was graceful, kind, insightful, lovely, and lots of fun to work with.  We HIGHLY recommend her for any type of wedding or ceremony where there is a need for someone to hold the space and usher in the blessings of a new union.”  Moriah and Aaron Goldman

“Amy and I would like to extend our gratitude for helping guide us through to our wedding ceremony.  Amy has expressed how comfortable she felt with you in our meetings prior to our ceremony.  Your simple instructions allowed us to create the vows & words that made for a perfect day together.  We expect to take them forward for all our lives together.” Amy and Mark

“I highly recommend Rev. Bhavani Metro to perform your wedding ceremony.  Rev. Metro made ours wonderful and everything flowed smoothly.  She is very helpful with ideas be it a large formal ceremony or very intimate such as ours.  She takes the time to get to know you as a couple and individual and incorporates this information into the body of the ceremony.” Randy & Stacy Stuart Wimmer
