Where can we have our wedding?

The possibilities are endless. You can have your wedding anywhere you want. We have officiated wedding ceremonies in reception halls, on the beach, in parks, in back-yards and in living rooms. This is your wedding, where do you want it to be?


Can we write our own vows?

Yes! We love it when couples elect to write their own vows. Rest assured, we also have lots and lots of vow samples that you can look through. You can pick from our list if you like. You can even use our samples for inspiration when writing your own vows. If you need help, just ask.


Will you marry me if I am divorced?

Yes, of course we will. Why do you even ask?


Will you officiate our same-sex ceremony?

We don't know what "same-sex marriage" is anymore. Before October 21, 2013 we were forced by law to call it Civil Union. Now, we just call it marriage, like it always should have been. Oh! Almost forgot... we would be honored to marry you!


We were thinking of something out of the ordinary.

Wait, was that a question? We suppose it all depends on your level of out of the ordinary. We are very open minded and love fresh ideas to make wedding celebrations a true reflection of each couple. We probably have a few out of the ordinary ideas to give you too. Let's start with a few ground rules first. No weddings free falling from airplanes. We are comfortable where gravity keeps us. Next, no weddings under water. It's just not our thing. If it's anything else, ask... really.


Do you offer non-religious weddings?

Your wedding is based on your ideas and beliefs. Your wedding can be as religious or non-religious as you like. It's your call.


Can we include our children?

Absolutely! There are many great ways that children can be incorporated into a wedding ceremony. This is a great topic to bring up during your initial consultation with your officiant.


Can we include our pets?

Yes, Yes & Yes! We are animal lovers. Every officiant on our team has pets living at home with us. Heck, they're not even pets. They are part of our family. It would be fantastic to include your best dog, ring bearing feline or flower eating iguana. Sit, stay... whatever.


Should we invite you to the reception?

It's very rare that we stay for a reception. Typically, we will hang about and mingle with your guests after the end of the ceremony. Once your marriage license is all squared away, we will make a quiet exit.


What happens if you can't make it to the ceremony?

Sure, we joke a little bit but we take this just as seriously as you do. We have checks in place to make sure that you are covered. Our service agreement clearly states that in the event of an accident, emergency or death that we will do everything within our power to ensure that an acceptable alternate officiant will be there for you.


Shhhh! We are already married and nobody knows. Can we just fake it?

Well, there's really no such thing as a fake wedding but we would be happy to help you. There is a few details we will need go over first. We can talk about these during our initial consultation. Don't worry. We can keep a secret.


Do we have to sign a contract in order to book with you?

Yes. Our service agreement clearly states what, where, when and how services will be provided. We VERY strongly recommend that you have a signed agreement with every wedding vendor that you choose. This protects both you and the vendor. Click here for an interesting article on wedding contracts.


How far in advance should we book with you?

If our schedule is open (and you have a marriage license), we could marry you today. Prime dates should be booked as soon as you have a venue secured. These dates usually start to fill eight to twelve months in advance.


Do you offer ceremonies in foreign language or ASL?

Not at this time. All of our ceremonies are officiated in English.
