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

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.

Paul is amazing! My husband and I were blown away by his kindness and his professionalism! He did such a beautiful ceremony for us and incorporated our God Knot we requested seamlessly. We have received so many compliments from our families and even on lookers at our destination wedding in Big Sur about his service! We couldn't have asked for anyone better! The perfect man for the job!

Paul officiated my surprise vow renewal I planned for my husband as an anniversary gift. Paul was extremely professional and took the time to talk with me several times on the phone and many times over email to make sure our ceremony was perfect. I personally believe officiating our vow renewal was a little tricky since he couldn’t speak to my husband before-Paul asked great questions and made it easy for me to explain our relationship from both sides. The actual vow renewal on Moonstone Beach in Cambria was magical, I was literally speechless after. The words Paul picked and the way he navigated the private vow renewal was amazing. It even brought a tear to my husband’s eyes even though he claimed it was “the wind”. I HIGHLY recommend using Paul for your wedding or vow renewal, especially if you are traveling to the central coast for your ceremony and won’t be able to meet with him in person.

Amanda,
I should be giving you a review for how much you put into your marriage and your vow renewal! Your husband was obviously surprised yet not at a loss for words to express his love and gratitude for you and what you have together. Your ceremony is a perfect example of why I love doing what I do for lovely couples like you. Thank you and I'll see you on you next renewal!

It was a pleasure to work with the two of you over the last five months and getting to know you in our Skypes and emails. Your ceremony seemed to take place exactly like you envisioned it and everyone was so happy for you. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to have an honored part of your wedding.

Paul did a beautiful job with our ceremony. He was willing to discuss all of the details with us in advance and incorporated our ideas into the ceremony, including readings by our families and a tree planting. He was not available for the 4th of July rehearsal so he sent us a plan to us which was helpful. His demeanor is calming and his tone is sincere. He even drove 10 miles up a mountain road to our venue with no trouble! Thanks very much for a meaningful ceremony, Paul!

Thank you, Sarah, for asking me to write your ceremony and be a part of your wedding day. Yes, the farmhouse is way up the mountain, but to witness you and Jonathan share something so important was worth the bumpy ride! I hope that your tree grows as robust as you will together!

Paul Howell was EXACTLY the right person to officiate our wedding ceremony. He was MORE than helpful; he made everything very easy. He provided his lovely wife Kate as our witness and gave wonderful suggestions for everything we wanted. It was the perfect ceremony for us. We will be forever grateful! We definitely recommend Paul to officiate your wedding ceremony. He will personalize it for you to fit whatever you desire. We can't imagine it done any other way.
Thank you, Paul, so very much!
Sincerely,
Danielle and Todd Perryman

Paul officiated our wedding on May 31, 2014. Paul did a wonderful job. We were a destination wedding so we came to weddingwire to find an officiated for the Pismo Beach area. We came across Paul's vendor page and loved what he had to say about himself, marriage and his process. He was very easy to get a hold of and work with. My husband and I wrote our own vows and Paul incorporated them beautifully inside the ceremony. The day of our wedding he arrived early, was wearing a suit and did a beautiful ceremony. We appreciated his services so much. He even mailed us a copy of our marriage certificate that he sent in for us. We would definitely recommend him for other wedding. Thank you so much Paul for your wonderful service on our very special day!
