I am a professional wedding officiant becasue I believe in strong, vibrant and lasting relationships and have found that the love within marriage is the most wonderful of all. My primary life's goal is to make the world around me a better place and I put my heart and soul into every ceremony that I write and perform in order to help make your wedding day exceed your expectations. My approach to performing weddings is born out of my own experience and what I have learned about how enduring, satisfying relationships thrive. When life is boiled down to it's essence, the material world fades in comparison to relationships. Loving another and being loved adds color to a black and white world. In fact, there is nothing else like feeling and knowing that "I am loved" and, in turn, feeling a deep love for that person. Building an unshakable marriage based on genuine heartfelt love and mutual respect is the heart of a full and rich life. I have been involved with and have chaired several types of relationship-based support groups and workshops, attending hundreds of meetings with people from all walks of life; the focus and goal for all being a healthy and gratifying relationship. Some years ago when my marriage with my wife, Kate, was put to test, to say that we worked very hard to transform our marriage would be a great understatement. Yet I can assure you that the rewards are priceless! Our marriage is better than anything I ever thought possible. As I write an original ceremony, I draw upon my background of working with couples, navigating successfully through the issues encountered in marriage in order to build deep, emotionally rich and intimate relationships. The wonderful life lessons which have made my marriage and countless others rich and satisfying are part of what I like to incorporate into my ceremonies. Marriage With Meaning is my heartfelt contribution to the human race, my small gift to those who are celebrating love and commitment and wish to begin their marriage with joyful purpose and with thoughtful meaning. The ceremonies which I write are non-religious, yet I can easily reflect your individual spirituality in a variety of skillful ways. I like to ask questions and listen to you talk about your love, your life and where you want to go together. Every word in my ceremonies is carefully chosen to express the essence of genuine love, a nurturing relationship and an authentic, satisfying marriage. I speak with a relaxed confidence and happy enthusiasm whether your ceremony is just the two of you or with hundreds of guests. When you ask me to officiate your wedding, you can rest assured that your wedding ceremony is in sure, capable hands and a heart of gold. Read less

We cannot praise Paul Howell enough! We are older and our wedding was not the typical wedding. Paul was flexible, full of wonderful ideas, and so sensitive to our special needs. He was a great listener and focused on exactly what we wanted. We feel blessed to have found Paul. He truly made our ceremony a Marriage With Meaning!

Our ceremony with Paul Howell was fantastic. He wrote a personalized ceremony script just for us and it made our ceremony so memorable. When we first met, he spent about an hour with us determining what kind of ceremony we wanted and spent the time to get to know us. I had a lot of questions for him and he was always very quick with replies and always there to help. After we got married, he even hand delivered our marriage certificate to the county recorder so we didn't have to worry about it. I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks Paul for making our ceremony so special.

Paul was everything we wanted in a Officiant. Since the first time I sent him a message regarding our wedding he would reply quickly with the answer's I needed. The day of the wedding he was on time, made our ceremony more beautiful with his own special touch in his speech and most importantly he made us feel 100% comfortable as if we knew him forever.

Thank you, Stacy; it was a pleasure going through the process with you! Getting to know you and Carlos, coordinating your rehearsal and keeping everything calm in the midst of the crazy circumstances of the wedding day is an affirmation that I am doing work that I love. You are a beautiful couple and I wish you continued happiness in your life together.

Paul Howell was a fantastic officiant. We found him online, so we weren't sure what to expect, but he was so friendly, professional and helpful. He provided us with a ton of information about the ceremony, gave us different options for the wording and even gave us examples of possible vows. He also provided us extensive information about how to obtain the wedding license and how to navigate that process. Paul was very organized and was very punctual throughout the planning process as well. He delivered a beautiful ceremony and it was just what we wanted. We would highly recommend Paul as an officiant for a future wedding!

Paul was extremely helpful and very well prepared for our December wedding. He puts a lot of thought into what he says for the ceremony and everyone could tell. I appreciated how flexible he was with my husband and I while planning the ceremony as we were a good three hours away from Paul; he gives the couple the option of meeting in person or chatting/"Facetiming" over the phone to get to know who he's working with.
Lastly, I appreciated how beautiful the ceremony was as a "non-denominational" one. My husband and I were on the fence about it for a while but Paul proved to us that the unity of marriage is beautiful in itself. Thank you Paul for helping make our day one to remember!

Paul did a great job being the Officiant for our wedding. We met up a couple months before where we talked about what we wanted for the wedding, he has a lot experience, and presented us with various ceremony and reading options. He really helped make the ceremony the way that we wanted it to be. He was punctual and really did a great job with being there for our wedding day.
