The services I provide allow this area of your wedding to be fun and worry-free.
Included is a "get acquainted' visit with bride and groom to answer questions and discuss your 'vision'.
I have ceremonies to choose from or you may wish to create one more personalized just for you. We have informal ceremonies, traditional, non-traditional, formal, with or without mentioning God.

Will you have input in the ceremony, and will you be allowed to review the ceremony before the wedding?
What will the officiant wear?
What items does the officiant provide, and what must you bring yourself? (Microphone, items for special rituals?)
Is the officiant open to any personal ideas for the ceremony? For instance, is he or she open to personalized wedding vows, wedding readings, songs or special family rituals?
Will he/she be available for the rehearsal? The Officiant can be helpful at the rehearsal especially if you do not have a wedding co-ordinator.
The Bride and Groom should obtain their marriage license at any County Clerk's office in the State. The license is valid for up to 90 days before the wedding date.
An officiant should be willing to work with you. Choose someone who you feel can most successfully convey the day you desire. His or her personal demeanor should reflect the mood you envision for your reception. Some are light and jovial, often interjecting sermons/speeches with bits of humor. If you envision a more formal and solemn affair, you may object to this style. If you don’t already have a relationship with this person, consider whether you like his/her style and whether you would enjoy working with this person. Remember, your officiant performs the most important service at the wedding. He or she is the one who will officially pronounce you man and wife, which is the sole reason for the big event in the first place. You should feel comfortable inviting this person to share such an intimate moment in your life. Look for an officiant, like us, that will offer guidance and advice to help you achieve your most beautiful day.
Here is an excerpt of one of our many samples to choose from.
Bride & Groom - marriage is the promise between two people who love each other, who trust that love, who honor one another as individuals in that togetherness, and who wish to spend the rest of their lives together. It enables the two separate souls to share their desires, longings, dreams, and memories, their joys and sorrows, and to help each other through all uncertainties of life. A strong marriage also nurtures each of you as separate individuals and allows you to maintain your unique identity and grow in your own way through the years ahead. It is a safe haven for each of you to become your best self while together you become better than ever could be alone.
You are adding to your life not only the affection of each other, but also the companionship and blessing of a deep trust. You are agreeing to share strength, responsibilities and love. To make this relationship work, therefore, takes more than love. It takes trust, to know in your hearts that you want only the best for each other. It takes dedication, to stay open to one another, to learn and grow, even when it is difficult to do so. And it takes faith, to go forward together without knowing what the future holds for you both.
I am happy to include one of these in your semi-personalized and custom wedding ceremony at no additional charge. They add a 'visual effect'- your guests are more likely to remember what they 'see'.
I will explain any that you aren't familiar with.
