Kathy and Larry Wilkerson, non-denominational ministers/officiants, have been performing wedding ceremonies throughout the SF Bay Area for more than 10 years. Hundreds of happy couples have allowed us the privilege of working with them to make their ceremonies heartfelt, warm, and memorable.

We are happy to help make your ceremony the ceremony of your dreams, reflecting you both as individuals as well as a couple. Whether you prefer a traditional ceremony and vows or something more contemporary, we respect your wishes and personalize the ceremony to suit you.

Your wedding day is the most special day of your life ... and the ceremony is the centerpiece of that day.

As you walk down the aisle, each step brings you closer to the one you have chosen to spend your life with. Although the words, "I do" have been said so many times before, when you are looking into the eyes of your beloved, it is like the first time those words have ever been expressed. Read less

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?
Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Hindu, Jewish, Muslim
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes ... we have done hundreds of ceremonies at resorts, state parks, hotels, on the beach, anywhere that you choose.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Depending on the preference of the couple, we wear either a dark suit or a black minister's robe. In some instances, Kathy will coordinate her suit color with that of the wedding party or theme.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely. Your ceremony should reflect who you are as individuals, as well as a couple. We respect and honor your wishes. We provide lots of sample ceremonies which assist you in creating your personalized ceremony, and are happy to incorporate any other material that resonates with you. We also perform ceremonies for couple from diverse backgrounds, faiths, and cultures, honoring the traditions of both.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Couples are welcome to write their own vows, customize our samples to suit them, or use vows that they come across in their research.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
We have a large collection of readings that couples may choose from, but we do not require the couple to use these readings, and will happily accommodate any reading that suits the couple.
How long are your ceremonies?
This varies with the preference of the couple. Usually thirty minutes is plenty of time, including both the processional and recessional. We have found that most people's attention span is about 20 minutes, and that this is a comfortable amount of time for both the bride and groom and their guests.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
We do not require premarital counseling. However, we are happy to facilitate a communication session for topics that a couple feels need further discussion.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes. We provide a rehearsal, ensuring that all the wedding party participants, family members, and especially the bride and groom are clear on where they will stand, the order of the processional and recessional, etc., so that everyone can relax on the day of the wedding and enjoy the ceremony.
Do you supply a sound system?
The sound system is usually provided by the venue or by the couple.

Larry did an amazing job officiating our wedding! From our first meeting, we were very impressed with Larry's professionalism. We had been considering other officiants and none of them compared to Larry...we felt he genuinely cared about our ceremony and learning more about us as a couple. Larry allowed us to have a role in planning our ceremony and provided a document that was a great guide with many ceremony templates to chose from - you could also personalize each ceremony with provided readings, traditions and ceremonies. Larry did a great job at both the rehearsal and day of the wedding. He was genuine, personable and we are grateful that Larry was a part of our special day! I would highly recommend him to any couples seeking an officiant!

Larry did a great job working with us for our wedding ceremony. I like the fact that they let you be apart of creating the ceremony, and they also give you a bunch of ideas to work with. Larry was great an coordinating the ceremony itself, I never really knew what a production a wedding was. He made it easy and gave us a step by step outline of how everything was going to be, it was perfect.

Larry also filed all the paperwork after the wedding too, and notified us when everything was recorded so we could pick up our certified copy of the marriage license, that was a nice touch.

I would highly recommend using heartfelt weddings, they are great to work with, and the ceremony itself was flawless.

Kathy was organized professional and absolutely necessary for our perfect day. She was very flexible and allowed us to incorporate our friend into the ceremony as a "co-officiant". I first met Kathy from my friend Jennifer's wedding and I was so lucky to have met her! I would highly recommend Kathy for your wedding.

Kathy was referred to us by our wedding coordinator. As soon as we met in person, my husband and I knew she was a perfect fit for us. Kathy was extremely kind and helpful in helping us plan our wedding. She provided us with many resources to help us write our ceremony and guided us through the process. She made time to join us for our rehearsal and made sure everybody was comfortable with the procession, recession and steps in between. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how wonderful Kathy was as our officiant. She very quickly and efficiently followed up on all the legalities and filing of paperwork. We are delighted to have met Kathy and worked with her. We highly recommend her!

Larry was our wedding officiant. He was very professional. He helped us preparing our ceremony style, marriage license and guide us step by step. Larry always accommodated our request. We asked to legally married on the day before our ceremony at the last minute. Larry never said no to us and he came for us right before his other wedding. The ceremony was great and it made a lot of people cry. We really love it. Thank you Larry.

Kathy was amazing to work with. I had a lot of questions about my wedding day and she always responded back to my emails within hours. There was a last minute time change for the rehearsal and she was still able to accommodate and meet us at a very late time of 8:30pm. She then proceeded to guide us through the details of the ceremony and made sure we were fully prepared for the wedding ceremony. Kathy took her time to explain everything to us and there was never any confusion about the process. I am glad I had Kathy as an officiant and highly recommend her to anyone getting married in the Bay Area!
