Your ceremony, your way...fun, unique, customizable!
Unique & Fun Vibe Lines like, "Because a happy wife is a happy life. Fortunately, she knows that happy husbands are important too!" You may modernize the ceremony to suit your style, theme or intimate jokes that are meaningful to your unique relationship.
Modern Verbiage Your ceremony doesn't have to sound like a Shakespeare play. You won't hear thine, shall, thou, morrow, doth or thee, unless you request it.
Non-Faith & Non-Denominational Options Not every couple is on a spiritual path. Your ceremony doesn't have to be either. Ceremonies are customizable to bind couples of two different faiths, unite nonreligious or nondenominational couples.
Children are Welcome! You are always welcome to include your children in the ceremony in any way that is meaningful to you. There are several lovely passages in the book to include children in the ceremony. *Children are also included in the Sand Unity Ceremony @ n/c
Completely Customizable You can choose the ceremony parts you like best, or include those not found in the book. Many fun and laid-back options as well as sincere and traditional options.
Selecting the right wedding officiant is one of the most important decisions you’ll make during the wedding planning process, because the way your ceremony feels will be something you and your spouse will remember forever. Although an officiant will be one of the smallest items in your wedding budget, they are one of the most important. Finding someone who is professional, knowledgeable and that you are comfortable with, will help keep your wedding in the “stress free” zone.
Wedding coordination with balance: we take care of the details, but give you the tools to craft a truly meaningful ceremony that is nothing less than the beauty of you. We work closely with you to create a completely customized ceremony that celebrates your unique relationship, and we never deliver a generic “cookie cutter” script. The ceremony should reflect who you are as a couple - your love, your relationship, and your values.
Your experienced, professional, non-denominational minister performs hundreds of religious and secular wedding ceremonies each year, and will create a memorable, heartfelt experience for you. Whether you are interested in something short and sweet, or a complicated interfaith wedding ceremony, we are happy to collaborate with you to make your wedding ceremony exactly what you’re looking for. Your ceremony is an expression of your love & your unique love story. We welcome you to express that in a way that feels right for you as a couple.
Each wedding ceremony package includes the following: Initial Consultation We want you to feel totally comfortable booking our services, which is why we offer a free, no-obligation consultation with your officiant. We typically conduct these initial consultations via Skype or phone, but if you would prefer to meet the officiant in person you are welcome to schedule a meeting (fees will apply).
Ceremony Editing & Planning Once you’ve signed your contract and paid the deposit, you will receive our exclusive Ceremony Planning Book, with over 150 pages of vows, prayers, poems, blessing & readings. This book is outlined so that you only have to select which passages you want to include, modify them if you choose & email back to us. Your Officiant will arrange & modify the flow of the ceremony & email it back to your for approval.
You can revise your draft ceremony as much as you’d like until it is the exact ceremony you want. We want it to feel perfect! If you need additional suggestions or guidance, we are happy to help at no additional charge.
The Ceremony! Your officiant will arrive at your wedding early to help coordinate with your attendants and vendors and get ready for the wedding. We are more than happy to work with other wedding professionals, and are perfectly comfortable with photographers taking pictures anywhere they would like during the ceremony. Your officiant will deliver the exact ceremony you’ve discussed, and create a wonderful experience for you.
Breaking With Tradition: We always tell our couples that there is no “right” way to do a wedding ceremony, and we will work with you to create something that is a unique expression of your love. Traditions are wonderful, and many of our couples choose to perform a traditional ceremony – others choose to break with tradition and do something entirely different. We encourage you to listen to your heart and do what feels right for the two of you, whatever that may be.
Legal Considerations: Marriage License Although it’s your responsibility to obtain the marriage license before the wedding, your officiant will take care of signing it afterward and filing it with the court. It will be returned to the court via Certified USPS so we have a tracking number to verify it was received. You’ll also get a copy of the license for you to keep, in case you need it for your records.
Premarital Coaching Premarital Coaching is available at no additional charge, if you choose. It is not required, however you will save considerable money on your marriage license.
