Welcome and Congratulations!

Your wedding day will be one of the most important days in your life. It is a celebration of your love,
your commitment to one another, and the life that you share.

I am Tiffany Newman, a registered civil wedding officiant in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. I perform non-religious civil ceremonies for couples of all backgrounds, including same-sex marriages.

In October 2009, I attended the March for Equality in Washington, DC.

I was in an interracial marriage and felt that there are many parallels between the current fight for marriage
equality in the GLBT community and that fought by interracial couples of generations past. As the child
of an interracial marriage, I watched my parents go through many of these same struggles.

So, to show our support, I carried a sign that read "Our Marriage Was Once Illegal, Too!"

The response I received from other marchers was overwhelming and unimaginably humbling. I felt that we needed to do more. So, when Marriage Equality came to D.C. in March 2010, I began offering our services to both same-sex and opposite-sex couples.

SInce then, I have performed several hundred non-religious civil ceremonies for couples of all backgrounds, including gay and same-sex couples.

I perform small ceremonies in my office and ceremony room in Dupont Circle. But, I but am also available for ceremonies of all sizes at the location of your choosing within the DC metropolitan area.

I respect and work to understand the needs of the couples I wed. I hope that you will give me the pleasure of being a part of your special day.

All love is welcome here! Read less

Tiffany Newman was our wedding officiant and she was amazing! So many of our guests commented on how great she was after the ceremony. We are so glad we found her, she made our ceremony feel the way we wanted it to feel, intimate and special. She has such a calming presence and she helped us craft a ceremony that was unique and unforgettable. We highly recommend Tiffany. Thanks so much for making our wedding day wonderful!

Where do I begin!? When my partner and I began searching for an officiant we were horrified how many people were only "willing" to carry out same sex ceremonies. When we found Tiffany we knew she was different - she believed strongly in the equity of all love! From the very beginning Tiffany has kept the focus on the two of us and what we wanted our ceremony to be - she has never made it about herself or anyone else.

When I first contacted Tiffany several months ago she responded with a kind and genuine message. Despite being in a binational couple and based in the UK I had no difficulties contacting or meeting Tiffany - she was amendable and flexible. When we met Tiffany there was something calming and so very genuine about her. Each time we met with Tiffany she spent time getting to know the two of as individuals and as partners. Tiffany went beyond anything I expected - she made this part of planning a wedding calming and seamless. She made suggestions of things to consider that made the day so much easier. She spent a great deal of time making sure the ceremony script was exactly as we wanted it, and worked with us completely transparently.

Every single guest commented on how much they loved Tiffany and the ceremony - everyone loved her words, her presence and the way she spoke so genuinely. She arrived early on the day and helped to keep us both calm in the midst of moving an outdoor wedding indoors!

I cannot recommend Tiffany enough, nor can I think her for making such a special day that much more special!! Thank-you Tiffany.

Tiffany did an amazing job officiating our wedding at Hotel Monaco in DC. She was very flexible in meeting us and made sure to get to know our personalities and our relationship before sending us the first draft of our ceremony. Even though she explicitly stated that we could edit her drafts as much as we want to make it our own, we hardly had touch it because she nailed exactly what we wanted on the first try! The ceremony was perfectly us, something many of our guests have commented on. I wasn't expecting our ceremony to be one of the most complimented aspects of the wedding, but it certainly was -- thanks to Tiffany!

Tiffany brought dignity and serenity to our service. She performed a memorable ceremony and kept the focus on us as the couple getting married. But it’s the small things I will remember, like when my husband starting tearing up, Tiffany discreetly slipped him a tissue. I highly recommend her.

It is impossible to overstate what an outstanding and absolutely PERFECT ceremony Tiffany Newman conducted for my partner and me. She was kind, thoughtful, and gracious, and somehow she knew exactly what to say and how to say it. She put us at ease and allowed us to experience the ceremony as a beautiful experience of grace and love and commitment. We are so grateful that we chose her, and we definitely encourage others to consider choosing her services.

My partner and I decided to get married in D.C. as it is not legal in Tennessee. I had NO IDEA how to go about making arrangements, paperwork, court stuff etc....Tiffany Newman went above and beyond explaining in great detail what we needed to do, what the costs were and what services she provided. She was kind, professional and sincere. Tiffany made our wedding day more special. Thank you Tiffany for navigating the legal system for us as well as providing a beautiful wedding service. With much appreciation, Libby and Lori
