What is a Wedding Officiant Worth?

Keep in mind the value of a wedding officiant who is dedicated to making your wedding ceremony perfect for you!

The most important and special part of your wedding day is your wedding ceremony.  Those few moments will be with you forever.  Your ceremony sets the tone for the rest of your wedding day.  It is the most meaningful and memorable part of your day.  Your ceremony should reflect who you are as individuals and as a couple and the special love you share.  We encourage you to call a few officiants and see if that person is a good fit for you and your personalities.  It takes special people to do what we do; they must have a passion for weddings and be compassionate to officate a lovely ceremony!


We are ordained and non-denominational and legal.  This allows us to perform ceremonies with religious and spiritual elements as well as non-religious ceremonies.  We will add special personal or ceremony elements if you wish (e.g., Wedding Time Capsule Box, Unity Sand, Hand Fasting, and more).  Our commitment to you is writing a beautiful, custom wedding ceremony that reflects your personal relationship, love, values and beliefs, so you can share your love with your family and guests on your special day.  Let us make the memories of your ceremony beautiful, special and magical!

Congratulations and may your life together be blessed!
