Welcome!

My name is Travis W. Crytzer and I am a registered officiant in the District of Columbia. I came to the city over ten years ago to attend American University and pursue my passion for politics. It was at American University where I met John and Nealey who inspired me to become an officiant. As a newly engaged couple they asked me to officiate their wedding ceremony. I was extremely humbled, honored, and thrilled to be asked and of course I said YES! The experience was so memorable and joyous that I wanted to offer my officiating services to all happy couples.

Since 2010, I have performed many ceremonies throughout the District of Columbia and each time the experience is just as blissful and exciting as my very first ceremony! I look forward to working with ALL couples to make your day extra special and just the way you envision it to be. Please feel free to visit my Testimonial page to learn more about a few of the pleased couples I have married.

Thank you and I cannot wait to be a part of your fabulous day!



Please feel free to contact me directly at travis@tietheknotdc.com to start planning your special wedding day!!! Read less

Travis was recommended to us by friends who previously used his services. Since we live in Florida and were traveling to DC for our wedding we wanted someone who would handle our needs via e-mail. We talked with Travis via face time and felt very assured from the start we would have no problems planning a destination wedding. He gave us venue ideas and offered many services though we did not need them because ours was a simple ceremony. Travis was a pleasure to work with and he will be highly recommended by us and our friends that accompanied us on our trip.

Travis was unbelievably kind, patient and professional in officiating our ceremony. Even though we only met once or twice prior to our wedding day, many guests asked us if he was a close friend. He really took the time to get to know us, and help us to craft a ceremony that was personal and suited to our personalities. Thank you Travis!

We are so happy to have had Travis as our wedding officiant! He was very kind, professional, and very helpful in coming up with exactly what we wanted said at our ceremony. He met with us before our wedding to see the venue and to walk us through the scripting. In lieu of a unity candle, we decided to do an Anniversary Winebox, and he helped us tie that into our ceremony perfectly! We would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an officiant! Travis was great!

Travis was wonderful as officiant for our wedding.

We had a smallish (5o person) wedding at the Tabard Inn, and wanted a secular ceremony that was warm and positive. Travis crafted the perfect ceremony and wove in a few things that were important to us (some quotes, saying our own vows). Everything was completely smooth and set a fun, happy tone for the rest of the day.

Before the wedding Travis was very responsive, and met with us once in person. He was very easy to work with and very professional. Day-of he had such a great vibe and was fun to include. He was also very confident in what he was doing, from crafting the ceremony to taking care of the legal documents and sending in the certificate. If you're looking for an intimate, positive, secular ceremony I'd definitely recommend him.

Travis was a wonderful officiant for our intimate little ceremony, and he was truly valuable to us when helping us get the marriage license before the ceremony and the marriage certificate after the ceremony. Travis took care of everything for us and always responded to my email inquiries within a few hours. We had 3 weeks to organize our ceremony and are both very busy. Luckily we found Travis and he played a huge role in helping us pull off the wedding planning in such a short timeline. After the ceremony he kept in close contact to make sure that we received the marriage certificate from the DC Marriage Bureau in the mail and followed up with the bureau on our behalf.

Travis officiated our wedding on 12/13/13 and was a true pleasure to work with from our first phone call through receiving our official marriage certificate in the mail about a week after we returned home to Florida. He performed a beautiful ceremony and was a wonderful addition to our very intimate day. We highly recommend Travis to help guide couples through the marriage process in Washington, DC. In fact, he just officiated a wedding of friends we referred and they were as equally pleased. On as scale of 1-5, Travis is a 6!

We traveled from another state to have Travis perform our wedding in Washington DC. Our first person-to-person meeting was our wedding day and meeting him was like meeting an old friend. He is a kind-hearted person and a professional while performing the ceremony. Our ceremony could not have been better and we believe Travis was a big part of that. Our wedding day will hold many special memories and we are honored that Travis is included in these.

Travis is an excellent officiant & went beyond the call of duty when our flight arrangements were delayed due to weather conditions. He is truly dedicated. As a couple of more than 20 years, he facilitated our dream of marriage. He was always prompt at responding to our inquiries during the planning stages & it was very reassuring having someone that we could place our confidence and trust in. Thank you Travis!

Today we were elated to receive our official marriage certificate in the mail. We were so excited to know that our union is officially confirmed and recognized. We have so many things to be thankful for, one of which is you! Words cannot express how thankful we were to have you there, sticking it out till the last minute possible, calming Melissa, and letting us both know everything was going to be okay. Your patience, compassion, and especially your calming smile was just unmeasurable! I'm so sorry for underestimating D.C. traffic and causing the delay in our ceremony. But I am so glad you held out for us because you were a part of one of the most memorable days in our lives!

I have to say when we finally met and you so graciously came to the HRC, we left there feeling like we had been friends all along. You were so warm and comforting, and let's not forget you are a "hugger" too! You have such a calm, caring soul and we could tell that about you as soon as we met you. Your professionalism and the way you conducted our ceremony was so wonderful. Thank you for being flexible and allowing us to add our own personal touches to the ceremony. Our jar of sand sits proudly on our mantle so we may be reminded of its meaning.

I don't think I can express all the gratitude we have for you helping us join our friends, family, and lives together to become legally wed. My hope is that your services will continue to flourish and that you will always stand up for marriage equality. Maybe one day we will see change in our state, so that the union you helped create will become just as valid as the next. Because after all, "all you need is love."

Travis, we thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for being there for us as we start our new journey as a happily wedded couple!

We can't say enough about how pleased we are with the service that Travis provided to us. Following the Government shutdown, we found our plans to be married almost ruined. We had already booked the day with the court, taken time off work, invited family from out of town and we were coming from out of town as well. With non-refundable airfare and hotels booked, we were very upset. This was the special date we had chosen! I emailed Travis and he replied very quickly. He advised us that the day was not in fact ruined but that he could make it even better than marrying in the court. He pointed us to a few lovely spots to choose from that would allow us to say our vows at no charge. When we met Travis we were so pleased. He made the day feel so meaningful with just his presence. He was professional AND caring. Travis made our day feel so unique and so special. He is also a very good Officiant, you can tell he's no rookie!
Thanks again Travis! You made our special moment everything we should have planned for from the beginning.

Hugs!

Travis was AMAZING! I couldn't have possibly asked for more! Coming from out of town and unfamiliar with DC, he suggested some beautiful locations and allowed us to choose. We chose Georgetown Waterfront Park. It was gorgeous! He was very flexible with our schedules. He answered all emails promptly. Very professional. Met every single demand. I would recommend him to anyone!

Working with Travis was so easy and perfect! We were in a pinch to get "legally" married few months before our actual wedding date due to my now husband's unexpected and sudden relocation due to work. At the time we were living in two different states and I was unable to make it to D.C. till few days before our departure to our new home town. Travis took care of absolutely everything before we arrived to D.C. He was great about keeping us in the loop of the progress every step of the way. Since we were both new to the area he helped us find the perfect location in the short time we had. He was very professional yet personable and made sure he knew exactly what kind of ceremony we wanted to have. We are actually using the marriage vows he selected for us for the wedding ceremony since it suited us so perfectly.

Thanks Travis!

Travis was absolutely wonderful.

I contacted him about a month before our wedding and got a response immediately. I'm in the military, so Vince and I were planning on getting married while I was home on leave from duty in Japan. We were worried about the cost of the marriage, but Travis was able to work with us at a fair rate and even recommended a location for the wedding since Vince and I had never been to DC. The park was lovely and the ceremony was just what we had asked for: something small and casual, with not a lot of ceremony but plenty of heart.

I would definitely recommend Travis for someone's marriage or civil ceremony. If he's still in town years from now, we'll get him to renew our vows!

He helped us with everything-- location, licensing, etc., with very little need of information from us. Travis was also one of the most fairly priced individuals we contacted in the DC Metro area. The day was perfect, and he was extremely receptive of any questions we had in the interim. thank you again, Travis, for making our day perfect!

Thank you to Travis I will never forget my ceremony and I will always remember how smooth the ceremony was because of him.

We are so grateful to Travis for all the wonderful things he did for us that saved us time. We literally left most of the planning up to Travis and drove into town the night before so we could be married on our tight schedule. What a wonderful Man.!!! He gave us many ideas on where to stay and have the ceremony and suggested kid friendly and Pet friendly venues that could easily fit in our child (Mya) and dog (Max). As our officiant, Travis was authorized to pick up our marriage licenses and provided us with a certified copy in the mail within a few days so we did not have to go to the courthouse. He is Amazing.... and truly A genuine soul...We were very lucky to have had him to perform our ceremony and will always recommend his services to anyone interested in marriage.
Sincerely,
Kathryn Blackman and Ursula Fritsch

Travis was our first and only choice to be the officiant at our wedding. He was helpful to a fault, provided timely guidance and answers to our many concerns, and was beyond professional. He went well beyond the scope of what he was obligated to provide, and offered to assist us in any way possible - even going as far to offer to pick up our license for us just to help remove that step. Travis definitely made our wedding a special, original and memorable event and we would definitely recommend him to our friends.

When my husband and I first got engaged we knew we wanted to have an officiant that shared our beliefs- equality for anyone who chooses to take the plunge! Through a recommendation, we were introduced to Travis. We hit it off instantly. He is easy to talk to but most importantly he wants to help make a couple's big day their own. He provided guidance on applying for and securing that all important marriage license and sample vows. We suggested we wanted to incorporate our own vows into the ceremony and he was fully supportive. He even held mine for me and handed them to me after I walked down the aisle.

In getting to know Travis as we prepared for our wedding I was always so impressed by his ability to go from an informal wedding ceremony at Meridian Hill Park for out-of-town couples to formal affairs at an embassy. I know he even helped one couple surprise their guests who thought they were simply showing up for an engagement party. Travis is friendly, professional, and always willing to help. I would highly recommend him.

He answered every question I had, (believe me there were a lot) was always timely with his responses, filed all our paperwork and offered tons of thoughtful suggestions to help guide us along the way.

We will forever be grateful that we had such a wonderful person to share this life-changing event with us. - Courtney

I was referred to Travis initially by another Officiate we tried, who was booked for our day, but that was perfect; a recommendation from a more established industry professional was good enough for me, and said everything about Travis' professional connections and abilities from an "insider" point of view.
We are a middle-aged gay couple from Charleston, SC and really knew nothing about getting married, except that we wanted to do it in DC because we both had connections there from our younger days. So we really had to rely on planning from a distance with a knowledgeable local contact.
Travis was immediately warm and helpful in correspondence and phone calls, and made every attempt to make the process easy and painless; from offering to help with the licenses to giving opinions on DC locations and wedding service providers, etc., his connections really showed. He also gave us options for the actual ceremony: style, language, vows, timing. I appreciated that he asked about our desires and was flexible and able to set any tone we wanted.
In the end we had our perfect small wedding with both of our sets of parents and just close friends, and Travis was outstanding with his timing and professionalism. And I would add, he was also charming with his convivial personality (and this is no small thing, since there were only a dozen of us in the room, with music, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres beforehand) he fit right in mingling with the small group and then jumped into action and took command as Officiate at the right time. Everyone later said they really enjoyed meeting him and that he was both perfect in his role, and also a nice addition to the group of people.

Travis was immediately warm and helpful in correspondence and phone calls, and made every attempt to make the process easy and painless; from offering to help with the licenses to giving opinions on DC locations and wedding service providers, etc., his connections really showed. He also gave us options for the actual ceremony: style, language, vows, timing. I appreciated that he asked about our desires and was flexible and able to set any tone we wanted.
In the end we had our perfect small wedding with both of our sets of parents and just close friends, and Travis was outstanding with his timing and professionalism. And I would add, he was also charming with his convivial personality (and this is no small thing, since there were only a dozen of us in the room, with music, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres beforehand) he fit right in mingling with the small group and then jumped into action and took command as Officiate at the right time. Everyone later said they really enjoyed meeting him and that he was both perfect in his role, and also a nice addition to the group of people. Read less

Travis provided exceptional service - professional, personable and confident! He is a vast wealth of knowledge when it comes to the DC laws and area. He allowed for our long-distance planning to be simple, which is exactly what we wanted... simple & perfect!

Highly recommend!

David and Michael – May 23, 2013
We began our journey with Travis in early January for our May wedding. From the first moment we made email contact, we knew we had found the perfect ft. In retrospect, we realize that once Travis began guiding us through the process, we never gave the entire legal aspect a single thought. They were dealt with so quietly, confidently and calmly. In addition, he aided us in taking a vague vision we had for our ceremony and creating the dream wedding we wouldn't have even dared wish for. When we first met him on the day before our wedding, we experienced what so many before us have stated – it was like reconnecting with an old friend. His personal warmth and compassion were matched by the ease of his professionalism. Indeed, having Travis officiate our wedding alleviated much of the “sting” at having to have a wedding outside our own state where we could be surrounded by our closest friends and family. We were married by an old friend!! In spite of a very public venue in front of the Lincoln Memorial, Travis made this the intimate, personal ceremony we had dreamt of. We have been together 22 years. Travis gave us one of the best memories of our life together – a whole new beginning to the rest of our lives. Thank you, Travis. You have touched our hearts and will remain a friend to us as we continue our journey of life together “planning futures, shaping years.”

Even though we planned a wedding in short notice and got lost while trying to find "the spot", Travis was compassionate and understanding. Other than the weather, we had exactly the ceremony we imagined. He really understood what we wanted via email and we never had to worry about what we needed to do for the legal side of things.

We are incredibly grateful to Travis for officiating our very intimate ceremony in front of the Capitol in Washington, DC. It happened when we wanted, where we wanted and officiated by a wonderful person who helped it to happen in the way we wanted. Travis provided us with the guidance before and after the process, but what is most important – he made the best day of our lives even greater. Thank you, Travis, for making this event so special, so intimate and so beautiful. We are so much happy that we said “Yes, I do” to each other in a ceremony officiated by such a nice and friendly person as you.
Mariia and Nikolay

Travis was extremely helpful, professional and responsive while planning our wedding ceremony. Since we do not live in DC, and were only marginally familiar with potential ceremony locations, Travis suggested several beautiful locations for our ceremony which met our parking and accessability needs. Travis submitted the marriage license application on our behalf, and then retrieved the completed license later, saving us the bother of making an additional trip to DC to process the application, which was a real time-saver and money-saver. We would definitly recommend Travis' services to others considering hiring an officiant for their Washington DC wedding.

Travis was the ideal wedding officiant. He was prompt to respond, professional, and flexible. I had zero doubts about him despite not meeting him beforehand. His best quality? He was still a little nervous even though he'd done this before. That demonstrated to my husband and me that he wasn't just on autopilot. I would definitely recommend him again.
