About Rev. Stephanie RaphaelDear Wedding Couple:
Thank you for your interest in having me officiate at your wedding. I’m looking forward to helping you create a ceremony that is meaningful, beautiful, stress-free and specifically designed for you.
Let me share with you something about my ceremonies:
The weddings I do are all individually created for each wedding couple. Your ceremony, as we create it together, will reflect your personal beliefs and desires. Ceremony text is approved by you prior to your ceremony. There are never any religious or marital counseling requirements. Of course, should you desire, I am available to you as a counseling resource and a resource of information on spiritual practices and wedding ceremonies.
If you two come from differing spiritual backgrounds, I will help you blend these traditions to create a ceremony that is meaningful to you both. By the way, your family, children and friends are welcomed and encouraged to take parts in the ceremony, as you see fit -- whether they read a poem, or sing a song, or help with specific parts of the ceremony.
In addition to my ceremony and rehearsal duties, I am also available to help you
with other wedding day questions. And, should you desire, I can also refer you to other wedding professionals through my affiliation with the Central Coast Wedding Professionals.
I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your ceremony. There is no charge or obligation for these meetings and you have an opportunity to look over copies of ceremonies I have previously created and performed. However, if you live out of the area, we can communicate by email, phone, fax and/or “snail” mail.
After you book my services, your wedding date is reserved and confirmed in my calendar. You will then receive sample vows and a variety of ceremonies to use as resources for your own wedding. I am also always available to answer any questions you might have. In addition to conducting the ceremony, I am happy to be part of your rehearsal and to work with your other wedding professionals. After your wedding, I will gift you with a beautiful copy of your vows as a memento. Always, my goal is that your ceremony be enjoyable and stress free for you.
Your wedding is very special to me and I look forward to helping you create your special day and to officiating at your ceremony.
Please accept my very best wishes for your happiness,
Reverend Stephanie Raphael
Interfaith, Non-Denominational Minister
