Customized ceremonies by Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® Stacy Mitchell that speak to who you are as individuals and as a couple utilizing the art of symbolism and ritual to create a ceremony that is wholly YOU! The Celebrant Motto: "Your Voice, Your Choice, Your Ceremony"!

Planning the Wedding of Your Dreams is often more challenging than one originally imagines. A Wedding consists not just of the dreams of the Bride-to-Be, but also the dreams, beliefs, values, & traditions of the Groom and those of two separate and distinct families. Add in to this the aspect of community inclusion, and what you have is a wondrous, and not to mention stressful, challenge to create a day that will meet and exceed the dreams and expectations of each participant to your union!

Many couples become so caught up and over-whelmed by this challenge that they fail to realize just how important it is to have someone they can trust and turn to for assistance from the start of this journey towards Sacred Union. In fact, most often, a Bride & Groom will choose their Wedding Officiant at the end of their planning, or sometimes even as an "after-thought" because they do not realize that there are people in their community who are trained to assist them in bringing all their dreams, beliefs, and traditions into the Ceremonial elements of their wedding day!


This is the Beauty of having a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® officiate your wedding!


My mission as your Wedding Celebrant is to help you create not only the day of your dreams, but to assist you in creating a Ceremony that reflects your beliefs, values, and traditions in a way that honors each of you as individuals and as the couple you are becoming. Regardless of whether you desire a private, intimate joining or a large celebration of your union, your Ceremony should reflect all that you are and all that you intend to become together. I urge you not to put off choosing me as your Celebrant! Read less
Officiant

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Hindu, Jewish, Shinto, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
I will perform your ceremony at the wedding venue of your choice! Whether it be your parent's backyard, a park, the beach, or one of the many beautiful restaurants or hotels in the area. And for elopements I have a sweet location available just for you! I am here to serve YOU.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I try to coordinate my attire with your wedding theme and colors in mind. And will ask your prior approval of my attire for the ceremony.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
As a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® it is my goal to create with you the ceremony of your dreams. This means that every ceremony I create and officiate is unique to you. These are not "cookie-cutter" ceremonies made from the "mickey-d's menu" for wedding ceremonies. <b><i>Every word,element, and moment of your ceremony is created by the three of us working together to make your special day truly special!</i></b>
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
You may certainly write your own vows! Often, my Bride's and Groom's ask for input or samples for this portion of the ceremony. It is entirely up to you how much input you want from me for this portion of the ceremony as the vows are the promises you make to each other for eternity!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Absolutely NOT!! However, I can certainly make suggestions as we work on creating your unique ceremony if you do not have something specific in mind.
How long are your ceremonies?
This depends completely on what the Bride and Groom want for their ceremony; most ceremonies requested are 15 to 30 minutes in length.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
Pre-marital counseling is not a requirement.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Rehearsals are encouraged.
Do you supply a sound system?
I do not supply a sound system as most venues and/or DJ services will provide these for you. Please do not forget that amplification is not allowed on California beaches, this should be considered when choosing a beach location as the closer your wedding is to the surf the higher the chance that you and your guests will not be able to hear the ceremony.

Stacy was an excellent officiant. She really listened to us and cared about how we wanted our wedding to feel. She wrote a personalized ceremony for us and even took our feedback for a total of three drafts. So many of our guests have said that ours was the most unique ceremony they've seen, and that it was perfect!

Stacy was wonderful in every way. She took the time to really get to know my fiance and I and drafted multiple versions of our ceremony, tailoring it until it fit us perfectly. Nearly everyone in attendance laughed and cried at some point. She was so fun and easy to work with, I can't recommend her enough.

Stacy was a great choice to conduct our marriage ceremony. As one of the most important events in a person's life, how do you go about finding someone perform the ceremony? My fiancé and I looked at a lot of websites trying to gleam as much as we could. There was something about Stacy's that made us call her first. After we met with her we knew that she would do a great job--and she did!

Stacey help make our wedding day truly special, and I highly recommend her to anyone getting married. She was very professional, easy to work with with and very supportive on our wedding day when I was nervous. My husband and I are very particular and we had a clear vision of what we wanted for our marriage ceremony. Stacey gave us a uniquely romantic service that was truly beautiful. Stacey creativity and experience gave her the ability to build us the perfect wedding vows that included all of the aspects we asked for and much more. Stacey even thought to asked me what she should wear to the ceremony so she would match in with the wedding colors.

Stacy officiated at our wedding in Paso Robles. As background I want to note that we felt that choosing the celebrant was one of our most important wedding decisions. We had been to a handful of weddings in the previous year, and although the celebrants all did well, we knew that the right celebrant for another couple might not be right for us, and vice versa. We also did NOT want a friend or relative to marry us because we had been to several ceremonies at which the celebrant (a friend of the groom) spoke more about the groom than the bride, and that seemed out of place. We also wanted someone who would make the ceremony unique and personalized, and not just have us select from a "menu" of choices.

So, we started by sending email inquiries to a handful of celebrants and met face-to-face with the three whose responses we liked best. We had provided our wedding website in our initial email inquiry and when we first met with Stacy, it was clear she had spent time reading over our website. (And, both my husband and I like to write, so there was LOTS to read.) She definitely made more of an effort to prepare for our meeting than the others had and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know us. We felt that her warmth and her interest in hearing our story would likely result in a more personal, meaningful ceremony, and it absolutely DID. In addition to talking at length at our first meeting, she later had us answer (in writing) quite a few questions about our relationship and about each other. Using our meeting and our written answers as the backdrop, she wrote the ceremony and provided it to us in writing, word for word.

The end result was WONDERFUL: a very personal ceremony, one that was unique to us and our relationship. It wasn't just about the generalities of marriage and relationships; it was about us. It truly was the perfect tone, fitting us and our view of our marriage and our wedding day beautifully. She even allowed us to edit the draft as much as we wanted and she also allowed us to incorporate our own ideas.

So, we highly recommend Stacy if you are looking for someone who is professional and experienced and very good at what she does. She will listen to you and get to know you, and create a personal ceremony that fits both you and the tone of your wedding. She will guide you and inspire you, but will give YOU ultimate control over your ceremony. (For instance, this might sound unimportant, but she even showed us several options for her attire and let us pick what SHE would wear. When you consider all the photos that are taken during a wedding ceremony, what a celebrant wears DOES matter.) She was also responsive to emails, reliable about providing drafts when she said she would, and she was on time for our first meeting, our rehearsal, and the wedding.

We are SO very glad that we selected Stacy!

We were so pleased with having Stacy involved in our wedding. She was everything we hoped we would find in our celebrant. I really feel that she listened to what we had to say and really knew us as a couple and that showed in what she put together for us. The ceremony was beautifully put together and everything she chose was amazing, personal, and very suited to both my husband and I.
