Officiant

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Christian (no denomination), Christian - Baptist, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Presbyterian, Evangelical
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, I will come to you and marry you most anywhere in VA, MD and DC. Have done weddings in homes, backyards, parks, country clubs, restaurants, etc.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Your choice: black suit, white shirt and white tie, black robe alone or black robe with white stole with gold crosses, or white robe alone or with purple or green stole w/gold crosses.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, and I can also provide a variety of vows from traditional to contemporary, long or short, religious or civil; all of which we can wordsmith together to achieve the perfect ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, and I can provide guidance and assistance as well.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have an extensive set of statements and phrases from which the couple can choose and I am quite flexible and willing to use any other appropriate material.
How long are your ceremonies?
My short ceremony takes about 15 minutes; my custom-designed ceremony can take 25-30 minutes.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I don't require it, but strongly recommend it. The idea is for the couple to go into their marriage with full knowledge, understanding and clarity about how to start their marriage on the "right foot" and keep it joyful, sweet and fulfilling.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, and I strongly recommend a rehearsal to ensure an orderly and smooth ceremony from beginning to end. Also helps the Bride & Groom, their family and bridal party to "break the ice," relieve nervouseness and get everyone in the right frame of mind for the wedding.
Do you supply a sound system?
No, but I always recommend that the Officiant be given a microphone, especially for outdoor weddings so that family and friends can experience every word as well.

We can't say enough good things about Rev. Julian. He was the perfect person for our wedding. He is friendly, spiritual and easy to work with. He provided a lot of great information that let us build our wedding the way we wanted and he eagerly participated in our plans. Rev Julian also delivered the perfect sermon. It was the appropriate length while being meaningful and adding to the occasion.

We liked that him and his adorable wife Laura spent time with us before the service and he ensured that he understood what we wanted. He was on time, made sure the service moved along and was fun to have them at the reception. We received many compliments from the guests, who all enjoyed spending time with them. Laura even helped me with the wedding, she is a blessing.

We gladly recommend Rev Julian to anyone looking to get married. He truly cares about people and that comes through in everything he does. We were lucky to have as part of our wedding.

Rev. Bermudez was professional and a pleasure to work with. My now husband and I met with him and his wife and they are the friendliest and most easy-going people! He was responsive to my phone calls and e-mails. I also found the pricing to be reasonable compared to other officiants I tried to work with. Rev. Bermudez had our ceremony broken down to a science as we were given many options on how to customize our ceremony. It was a very nice touch and he made our ceremony beautiful in the end! He also provided us a link to website to order any wedding ceremony accessories if we needed it. We actually got our customized unity candle from this website! I would recommend his services to anyone who is looking for an officiant for their wedding!

Rev. and Mrs. Bermudez were wonderful to work with for our wedding! After meeting with them, we knew they were the perfect pair to officiate and run our ceremony. They worked with our wedding planner seamlessly and took the time to really customize our service so we each got what we wanted. We had a beautiful ceremony, and Rev. Bermudez kept it to about 20 minutes, which is exactly what we wanted! We received several compliments on our ceremony and our families enjoyed getting to know both of them at our rehearsal dinner and reception. I highly recommend Rev. Bermudez to any brides looking for an officiant!

Rev. Julian and his wife were both very welcoming when we first met. I immediately knew I wanted to proceed with his services. His wife was also very helpful and his services and pricing were very reasonable. We discussed the idea of doing a bilingual ceremony as some of our guests were visiting from different countries. He was open to multiple ideas and even offered up some ideas for the ceremony, he has an entire menu of different options for the play by play so you know exactly what is going to happen and when it's going to happen. His wife was also super helpful. We paid a little extra to have her make sure everyone knew where they were going and what to do. Overall we were extremely happy with the services, we couldn't ask for a better day.

Rev. Bermudez was amazing! I absolutely loved him. He has an amazing personality that my husband and I just clicked with. Once we met Rev. Bermudez, we knew we didn't want anyone else to perform our ceremony. Everything from the selections up to the day of was organized and easy. The ceremony was beautiful. We had included an aspect of my culture's tradition into the ceremony, and Rev. Bermudez easily and nicely organized it into the ceremony. I highly recommend him!

We are so glad that Rev. Bermudez married us. He wrote a beautiful Christian ceremony in both Spanish and English. He is fluent in both languages and easy to understand. He arrived early to the ceremony in a nice black tuxedo with his wife dressed up in an elegant dark purple dress. The ceremony was a flawless, smooth, and joyful experience.

Rev. Bermudez performed my ceremony at my recent wedding. I chose him because he was one of the only people in the area that was able to perform a bilingual ceremony, and he was PHENOMENAL. His process for custom tailoring wedding ceremonies cannot be beat and his customer service and rapid replies were much appreciated during the planning process. The day of the wedding his calm demeanor was infectious and my guests told me that my ceremony was one of the best they had ever attended. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area looking for an officiant!

Rev. Bermudez and his wife made our day very special and memorable. Everyone thought he did very well and he added some humor to the ceremony, which everyone loved.

Reverend Bermudez and his wife Laura were wonderful. Very professional and they constructed the perfect wedding. It was very customized and exactly what we were looking for. Everything was very well organized and we had a great time working with them both. We had a pre-meeting to go over what we were looking for in our ceremony, followed by our rehearsal the night before the wedding. Highly recommend.
