Wedding Decorations


Our philosophy in life is spiritual in nature with love and kindness at its center.  As your Officiants, we will always honor and respect all beliefs and traditions, whether it be religious, spiritual or secular.  We DO NOT use any ceremony as a platform to promote our own personal beliefs but to assist you both in celebrating yours.  We incorporate everyday into our lives honesty, integrity and fairness.  We appreciate the tenets and rituals of all of the world's religions and faiths.  

Our uniqueness as wedding celebrants and Officiants WE are the co-creators, consultants, resource persons, encouragers, advisors and the Officiants of your wedding ceremony.  We deliver with each ceremony with professionalism and heart, and always will keep the focus on the couple.  The principle of celebrancy is that you, our client, own the ceremony.  We put dedicated time, energy and 100% effort into officiating each wedding ceremony and we will always offer valuable benefits to our clients that will be unique, including a customer written ceremony!!

Great Service

James did an absolutely wonderful job with our wedding ceremony.  He made sure to meet with us beforehand to understand what we wanted, and get acquainted.  We really liked his easygoing personality!  He wrote us a beautiful ceremony (I am Unitarian, and my husband is Lutheran).  He and his partner, Jean, were helpful and provided ideas when asked.  He is very knowledgeable about weddings and religion.  At our Groom's dinner, he did a ceremony rehearsal so everyone knew where to stand.  All around wonderful service for the price he charges.  Thank you, James!

James and Jean were helpful in every step of our ceremony planning process.  They were always responsive to our questions, and met with us multiple times to make sure all the details were taken into account.  We enjoyed their personality and presence, which added intimacy to an already beautiful ceremony.   We highly recommend them to anyone looking for an Officiant for their wedding day!

Thank you to both of you again!

Lots of love,
Jessie and Colton

We absolutely loved having James officiate for both our May 2020 wedding and our May 2021 vow renewal!!  Our plans changed last minute in 2020 and James was very understanding and accommodating.  If we ever have a vow renewal again in the future, he will be the first person we contact.

What is a Micro-Wedding?

A micro-wedding are the hottest new wedding trend.  These are usually called tiny weddings, a micro wedding is a stripped-down version of a traditional wedding with 30 or few guests.  Micro weddings typically last two to three hours, which is just long enough to have your ceremony followed by drinks, light bites, mingle with some photos to mark the occasion.  


What is an Elopement Wedding?

The smallest of the small weddings, an elopement is two people jetting off to get married with an officiant and maybe a photographer, often last minute and without family and friends knowing.  Elopments don't contain any aspects of a traditional wedding except a ceremony.  Many couples elope to the courthouse for a civil ceremony or head to Vegas.  However, a lot of couples are who are interested in eloping are really just looking for a non-traditional wedding idea.

What does an elopement day look like?

You and your guests (if you have any) will arrive at your selected time.  We will take a few minutes to gather everyone and then go right into the ceremony.  After your ceremony we will pop the bubbly and do a toast to you newlyweds!!  Your elopement will conclude with a photo session and then we send you on your married way!
