We are a husband-and-wife team - so you have a choice of a male or female officiant - depending on availability. (Although Rev. Dave tends to conduct 70-75% first-time brides and Rev. Rox performs about the same number in second-time brides.)

Our services include Rehearsal Coordination, either working with your coordinator or organizing and running the Rehearsal from the Seating of the Mothers to the Pronouncement and Receiving Line. We provide Rehearsal Buttons to the bridal party. (This helps us identify the members of the family and party.) With the Bride and Groom, we like to review "The Kiss" and Ring Exchange. Photographers appreciate that we take the time to go through that extra effort for better photos.

And, of course, one of us will be there to officiate your special day. We come prepared with our Wedding Day Emergency Kit and handheld fans for your guests of outside weddings. For your ceremony, you can choose one of over 20 different wedding ceremony rituals, including the Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Vows involving Children, Lasso, Coin and Veil or Smudging.

Did you get married and no one knows? And now you are planning a wedding? We can help. We are very discreet. (We have helped many couples who eloped for various reasons.)

Contact us to set up an appointment and we hope that you "Let me be the one to marry you..." 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?
Agnostic, Christian (no denomination)
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Rev. Rox: Our primary locations are non-religious sites: parks, home, hotels and other wedding venues.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Rev. Dave: As long as the wording is good for "mixed" company, we are very flexible in the wording of your ceremony. You should feel comfortable with all parts of your ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Rev. Rox: Couples can write their own vows or use vows from our Ceremony Selections Packet.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Rev. Dave: If you book our services, we will give you our packet of Ceremony Selections, which will help you create your dream ceremony. You may choose selections from our packet, edit them to your liking or bring in other selections that you may have seen or heard at another wedding.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
Rev. Rox: Our area of expertise are weddings and rehearsals. We don't require premarital counseling. If you would like premarital counseling, we can refer you to several professionals.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Rev. Dave: While we don't require a rehearsal, we almost insist upon one. Rox or I try to be at every rehearsal as we find that 80-90% of mis-cues could have been fixed at the Rehearsal.
 
 Rev. Rox: Your ceremony is a public statement of your commitment. You don't want it look unorganized.
 
 Rev. Dave: If Rox runs your rehearsal, be sure to ask her who Pepe is...and don't make him mad.

Rev. Dave was awesome! We couldn't have asked for a better officiant! From the first time we met him to discuss our needs we knew we wouldn't need to look further. He offered a variety of ceremony choices for my daughter and her fiance. He is very friendly and easy going and PROFESSIONAL! I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of an officiant.

Thank you Rev. Dave for making this such a wonderful experience for all of us!

Rev. Dave was wonderful and very responsive. I loved how we were able to personalize our ceremony and it made us both feel very comfortable. He also gave us a discount because my husband is in the military, which I thought was very kind. I would highly recommend Rev. Dave for your special day, he was a joy to work with.

RoxAnn was amazing! She was very professional and a ton of fun from the very beginning. She came to our initial interview well prepared with a visual presentation about her services. She was very friendly and warm as well as very funny. She put us at ease immediately and demonstrated that she could deliver on our big day. We left the interview knowing that she would be an awesome choice and disappointed we had scheduled interviews with other officiants.

RoxAnn let us write our own ceremony. She provided multiple templates for each part of the ceremony but did not require us to use her content. We combined what she provided with other ceremonies we found on the Internet to write our perfect ceremony. We are not religious so we had a completely secular wedding. This was not a problem at all for RoxAnn. Her templates contained many examples for both religious and secular weddings so it was easy to choose ones that worked for us.

RoxAnn was prompt to the rehearsal and she put us ease as we were scrambling to setup for our big day. Everyone at the rehearsal absolutely loved RoxAnn. She was hilarious. I don’t want to give away her surprises so I’ll just say RoxAnn brought her bag of tricks that kept everyone at the rehearsal laughing.

One of our friend’s who was at the rehearsal is also a minister. He was taking notes the whole time and said that she did a wonderful job. Many of our bridal party and family commented after the rehearsal that she was the best officiant they had ever seen and asked how we had found her.

On the big day RoxAnn was on time and ready to rock. We were nervous but her confidence helped calm us down. She delivered our custom ceremony flawlessly and there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd.

We really cannot thank RoxAnn enough. She was the perfect officiant and we highly recommend her to everyone.

After our first officiant canceled via email... Rev Dave came to our rescue at very short notice... He was willing to meet with us at our convenience and was nothing but supportive. His calm attitude and helpful advice helped to guide us through this meaningful and often stressful portion of our wedding with no problems. He even came to our rehersal as part of his services and made this also a fun yet productive time... I would recommend him to all my family and friends without a doubt!!
