Custom Wedding Ceremonies

When I am engaged to create and perform a custom wedding ceremony, I meet with my couple to get to know them. and we spend about an hour or so together and make some decisions resulting in the creation of a beautiful and memorable ceremony. I have a lovely order of ceremony and lots of choices therein.  I have a lot of great ideas of how to make your ceremony special, personal, memorable and even humorous, if you like.

Once the ceremony is created, I email you a copy of the ceremony I have created for your approval and/or for you to make changes as you desire.

If the ceremony has a lot of movement in it, I suggest I be present at the rehearsal the day before, if my schedule permits.

After the ceremony I complete the paperwork with your witnesses and file the license with the appropriate County Clerk/Recorder.


Semi-Customized Wedding Ceremonies

I use a really beautiful ceremony and customize it to your preferences regarding vows, and whether it is civil, religious, or spiritual.  I meet with you shortly before the ceremony to discuss how the ceremony will go and calm the pre-wedding jitters of the happy bride and groom!  I then perform your ceremony, complete the paperwork and am available for photographs. Finally, I file your license with the appropriate County Clerk/Recorder.
