Officiant

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Baha'i Faith, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Jewish, Muslim
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes! We have performed weddings in hotels, parks, gardens, the beach, a baseball field, golf courses, a winery, historic site, and even a hospital!
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes! You will choose all parts of the ceremony where you speak, and you will decide what elements to include in your ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes! If you prefer to write your own vows, you may; but we have literally hundreds at our fingertips, and we can advise and direct you towards vows that express what you want to say.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
No. Readings are deeply personal. A couple may include scriptural selections, poetry, prose, or song lyrics, or opt to have no readings at all.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No. We do, however, have a planning meeting with most couples (except for those eloping), which can be done in person or over the phone, and many e-mail exhanges as part of the planning process.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes! Especially for formal weddings and those with more than six in the wedding party, a rehearsal is useful to make those involved feel more at ease.

Our officiant was Terry McMahon. She was wonderful!! It was not the first marriage for either of us. We wanted a very small wedding. We had everything planned until I found out we had out of town guests coming that I thought wouldn't come. Then my Mother wanting to invite others and make it a bigger event then we wanted. Terry was great at helping to keep me grounded and focused, and reminding me why we were actually doing it. Terry helped create a ceremony that really reflected who we are. We were married outside at a lake with no rain backup and Terry was okay with that. She was very flexible while keeping the core components and requirements of the ceremony intact. Several of our friends have commented that they have never seen a ceremony like ours and that our ceremony was so "us". We did a handfasting ceremony using a cord that made myself. I used 6 strands, 1 to represent each of us and our children. Terry also helped us incorporate our children into our ceremony, by giving each of them a task to perform for the Glass Ceremony and incorporated us giving each of our children a gift much like our exchanging rings. At my request, she also commemorated my father who had passed away a year earlier.

With a last name of Patterson, I definitely married into an Irish family and loved that Trillium embraced that and provided options that emphasized that heritage.

We are about to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and having the typed version of the ceremony is a great way for us to remember that day on our anniversaries.

Rebecca helped make our wedding day absolutely perfect. She provided great suggestions during the planning phase and she did an amazing job during our cermony. She spoke clearly and loudly, she was professional and caring. I don't think we could have picked a better officiant to conduct our ceremony.

We worked with Rebecca for our ceremony. She is really friendly and nice and willing to perform a non-denominational ceremony, which was exactly what we wanted. Rebecca created a ceremony that was specific to my husband and I and it turned out beautifully. So many people complimented the ceremony and even asked for copies of it! She gave us a nice copy of it after the ceremony to keep as well.

Rebecca performed our ceremony and it was wonderful. We wanted an untraditional ceremony and Rebecca was great at giving us many samples and helping us. In the end we wrote our entire ceremony. I only wish Rebecca had mentioned feedback (like it our vows were very long) before the rehearsal dinner. She did write the blessings herself and the only concern of mine (which was not that big of a deal) was during the ceremony she said something about if we ever choose to have kids... which we don't.

I really appreciated how flexible the ceremony was. We were able to pick what we wanted to include from various ceremony pieces, add things, and change as needed. It was great to have a predetermined direction with the freedom to change things. A good experience!
