Wedding in the Fort Bragg Botanical Gardens

If you’d like me to be your officiant, I’ll be happy to help you with all the other aspects of your wedding, to make your wedding experience as memorable and stress-free as possible: choosing your location (I know some great, pristine ocean overlooks and beaches), selecting photographers and musicians, getting your marriage license, etc. If you visit here before your wedding, we can meet to scout locations, get to know each other better, and go over wedding plans.

I always include a rehearsal before the wedding itself. There is no extra charge for this. Going through all the ‘mechanics’ of the wedding service beforehand makes for a much smoother and more enjoyable wedding experience for everyone.

For the wedding ceremony itself, I create a special Wedding Service Booklet (on parchment paper) which I read from – and which includes the vows, readings, and all other spoken words. After the service, I give it to you as a lifetime ‘keepsake’ of your wedding.


I’ll also be sending you two helpful brochures I’ve developed: Planning Your Wedding (how to more fully enjoy this special wedding-creation time and reduce stress) and Marriage Discussion Guide (helpful questions many couples appreciate for opening deeper discussions about their relationship and expectations for the future that might not have come up in ordinary conversations).
