Officiant Services

Your ceremony is the heart of your wedding day. Be sure it delights your soul and feels true to who you are as a couple. You’ll remember the words you exchange and the love on your partner’s face far longer than the flavor of your cake or the color of your flowers. We offer four levels of ceremonies to fit most budgets and personal preferences.wedding 5

  • Elopement Ceremony (a beautiful, affordable alternative to the Courthouse)
  • Basic Ceremony (a pre-written simple and sweet ceremony for you and your guests)
  • Classic Custom Ceremony (personalized & customized–our most popular choice)
  • Premium Custom Ceremony (for the couple who wants it all)

Elopement Ceremony…romantic and intimate

Want your special day to be just between the two of you? Or maybe you only want a few family members to witness your vows. Consider our elopement ceremony to make your intimate wedding a memory that you will treasure. This service is a delightful and affordable alterative to the County Courthouse wedding.
