All About Us – The Officiants You Want for Your Wedding

Our Philosophy

ceremony, bride, groom, happy tears, officiant

Your wedding is a celebration of all that you are as individuals and as a couple. We create the ceremony atmosphere where you and your guests enjoy and remember your every moment. We love to see people smile (and even laugh out loud – This is a celebration!) during the ceremony and are prepared for a few happy tears as well. Our attention to the tiny details starts even before we begin creating your perfect ceremony or vows – well in advance of your wedding.  There are no last-minute decisions, worries or struggles to find the perfect words.  You relax, and enjoy being the bride, confident that you have found the officiant you have been searching for.

Whether we are creating your ceremony, assisting in writing your vows, or conducting your wedding rehearsal and  ceremony, or providing other services, we are all about you.  You are the center of our attention.  We are here to make your dreams come true.

Our motto is “Meaningful.  Magical.  Memorable”.  We live it every day for you.

Our Officiant Experience 

We are a full-service wedding provider, with the focus on creating the perfect wedding ceremony and vows for our wedding day.  We have created and performed hundreds of weddings over the past 10 years.  Each is unique, special and based on the personal dreams of the bride and groom. (Will Rodgers said, “I never met a man I didn’t like.” People say the  same about our ceremonies and vows. “  I never saw a ceremony/vows Rita created, I did not love”.)

Until recently we concentrated on weddings that were close enough to home (Maryland and Delaware) where we could easily travel.  Then we started getting requests from couple’s friends and family to officiate at their weddings, but the distance was too far, and travel costs were prohibitive.  It was the perfect fit to expand our services to our newest (newest in the sense only that we now span the globe, we’ve be writing ceremonies for over a decade). Now we create ceremonies and vows for couples around the world.

We also heard from couples whose officiant did not provide customized wedding ceremonies and even more who had a friend or relative performing the ceremony and wanted their own unique ceremony.  We are happy to work with your officiant to create your ceremony and offer him/her tips and advice if you would like us to do so.   You can also find support on our  Wedding Officiants Pinterest Board.
