Officiant Services

     It has always been my belief that there is no right or wrong way to celebrate a wedding.  The ceremony that is performed for you will set the stage for the rest of the day.   The most important part in your decision about the ceremony is that is has the tone and feeling that you want on your wedding day.   My goal is to incorporate into the ceremony, your own  personal ideas, your story, and beliefs that you want to share with those that you have asked to be part of your day. 

     Your ceremony can be traditional, non-traditional, spiritual, non-religious, even have some humor if you like.  The thing to remember first and foremost is that it is YOUR ceremony.   I will work closely with you to create a ceremony that you and your guests will be thinking about and talking about long after you say I do. 

 

For my services I provide the following:

  • Initial consultation either in person or via Skype/FaceTime to determine if I am the type of person you are looking for.

  • All communications necessary via telephone, text or chat to develop a customized personal ceremony for you.

  • Suggestions of readings, poems and other aspects that can be included in a ceremony, dependent upon your tastes and needs.

  • Personal direction in the selection and drafting of your vows.

  • Presence at the rehearsal provided there is no other time conflict. 

  • Professional attire and timely arrival prior to the ceremony.

  • Hand delivery of completed license to County office of San Diego.  Mail delivery of completed license to County offices outside of San Diego, usually within 72 Hours, holidays permitting.

  • Scan and e-mail of license submitted to county for your records.

Elopement:

    

     Some couples choose the option to "Just get away" from it all and get married without the fanfare and drama that an elaborate wedding presents.  Even though the "pomp and circumstance" is not desired, a meaningful and personal ceremony is something that will create a beautiful start to your lives as a married couple.  I place the same care and planning into creating ceremonies for these situations as well.  Whether it is just the two of you and myself, or a small group of 4-5 people, your ceremony will be more than just the simple civil ceremony that many provide in this situation.  My fees are $375,  but every situation in unique. Please contact me to discuss your particular needs. All fees are agreed upon in advance of the booking. Additional fees may apply to allow for travel outside of 30 miles from ZIP code 92115.
