It’s your wedding day, and you’ve invited the most important people in your life to join your celebration. As you get busy with all the planning and details that go into making the day a joyful one, keep in mind that your wedding ceremony launches the festivities by drawing all of your your family and friends into the same unique moment in time. A well-crafted ceremony is not only your own unique way of expressing your commitment to one another; it also brings your guests closer together and sets the tone for your celebration.

You can visit our FAQ page for answers to most frequently asked questions about how we will work together with you. You can also see our various service packages and rates on our pricing page. If you want to meet one of us and learn more, simply contact us to set up a personal meeting so that we can get to know each other a little and discuss your ceremony.

We contacted Steve because we knew based on his reviews he was professional. After meeting with Steve, we knew he would bring much more than just professionalism. And we were right. Steve crafted a beautiful ceremony for us and gave it to us with plenty of time to review and make our changes. He was even kind and patient when we were tardy in getting him our edited draft. Talk about easy to work with! The day of the ceremony Steve showed up smiling and looking happy to be part of our day. We know that in all of our ceremony pictures he will be in the background smiling happily, which is meaningful to us. We received many comments about how perfect the ceremony was. You know you have an amazing officiant when guests are in awe and asking how we found Steve. I just can't speak highly enough about Steve.

Steve was professional and personable, he walked us through all of the possibilities for our vows. He was prompt both in person and online taking the extra time to Skype with us when we were on vacation. If any of my friends who have recently divorced decide to take the plunge again I would recommend Steve's services.

100% five stars! Steve was such a blessing to work with for our wedding. Especially considering we decided to elope within one month (which ended up turning into a small wedding of 20 people anyway!) Steve always responded in a timely manner making sure to cover any questions or requests we may have. We wanted a non-demoninational wedding but that still carried the essence of our Christian beliefs and the ceremony he put together was light-hearted and beautiful! He provided us with a variety of options and many suggestions to customize it to our own liking and desires. He remembered many small details I asked of him (ones I didn't even remember) and he has a few funny punch lines during the ceremony to ease the wedding day jitters.

I am very thankful we found Steve with A Beautiful Ceremony!

Steve was a pleasure to work with for our ceremony! He was very responsive and flexible. The ceremony was short and sweet, just right for our special - but low-key - day. He seems to enjoy his "work" and be truly happy for the couples he marries. Plus he has great sartorial sense!

I found A Beautiful Ceremony NW online while searching for someone to perform our ceremony. I had spoken to many candidates, but it being spring break everyone was booked. I starting to worry because the date that was set for us to marry meant a lot. Steve was very flexible and willing to accommodate my needs. He was willing to help anyway that he could........ So we checked our schedules and I was penciled in. Needless to say, the day came and I felt like I had known him for ever not three days. Thanks again Steve for making our journey "Full Circle".

If you are looking for a wedding officiant Steve Sharp is your man. He was so easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. He showed up to the wedding and we had made a couple of changes. He easily rolled with them and integrated the changes into the ceremony seamlessly. He is a professional. It was obvious that he has a lot of practice, there were a couple of times during the ceremony that things did not go exactly to plan, he was able to ad-lib and get the ceremony right back on track. The ceremony was mostly written by him, his words are so moving and profound. I had numerous guest come up to me at the reception and tell me how much they enjoyed what he had said and that it was one of the best ceremonies they had been to. If you want your ceremony to run smooth and don't want to do a lot of the work and writing yourself, Steve is your man!

We highly recommend Steve!
