Colorado Springs Wedding Officiant Andra Vagher
Hello, I’m Andra Vagher. After a rather varied career as an educator and small business owner, I am now an officiant for weddings, something that appeals to my interest in people and as a proponent of love in all its forms! This segue seemed a natural after my years as a People Person in other capacities.
Born in South Dakota, I’ve lived most of my life in Colorado: growing up in Pueblo, schooling in Ft. Collins and Greeley, and several stints in Alamosa and Florence. However, it wasn’t until I’d had an opportunity to live in Vermont, San Diego, North Carolina, and even Germany for two years that I realized Colorado is where I truly “feel at home.” It’s easy to understand how the song, America the Beautiful came to be written after the author saw the mountains, the prairie, the desert, and the beautiful blue skies of Colorado!
I have enjoyed my travels through the world: Europe, Scandinavia, Mexico, Canada, parts of Ukraine and Czech Republic, and finally meeting my Pen Pal of 20 years in Moscow, Russia! My favorite memories of any of my travels have been the people I’ve met. Social media helps me keep in touch with friends all over the world as well as my family. I am still working on my Selfie skills, but the results are always entertaining! With my parents still living in the same house where I grew up in Pueblo, four sisters (three in Colorado), three grown daughters, and a grandchild, keeping up with the family is very important to me, wherever I am.
When I’m home, I enjoy dancing and like to take lessons in different styles. I found a pair of tap shoes in my size and hope to begin tap lessons to add to my dance experiences! I also enjoy walking in any of the beautiful parks and wild areas around here, as well as swimming, trying new restaurants (this is where the walking and swimming serve me well!), and listening to live music and comedy. I am a big reader and yes, a fan since college of a long-running Soap Opera!
I have always found people interesting in that everyone has a story to tell or a lesson to serve us. Hearing those stories and learning those lessons is a passion I hope to never lose. Life is full of beautiful experiences and there are few things more memorable than participating in a couple’s special day. I very much look forward to hearing your story and helping you create those special memories for a lifetime!
I serve Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Woodland Park, Pike's Peak, Monument and north to Larkspur.
