INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Christian (no denomination), Hindu
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes. Most often I perform weddings at non-religious sites: barns, hospitals, gardens, parks, parking lots, homes, golf courses, hotels, cheese factories, etc.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I wear a professional pantsuit. I try to enter into themes: Dracula for Halloween, Silk neck scarf for a 50's, wearing flip flops for a "Flip Flop" wedding, looked Elizabethan, wore a cowboy hat for a western theme, sat astride a Harley [not running] and wore Blue and Orange for a Bronco's themed wedding.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes. This is their dream wedding and I listen to what they want it to be. Many have written their own vows and allowed me to say only those words that I must as a California Minister. Others wanted only a special time to talk directly to their fiance and tell them from the heart how they feel.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
I encourage it. They can be read, or they can repeat what they wrote after me if they get too nervous. However they want it.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have a nice selection of wedding blessings and poems from which they can start to build the wedding the way they want it. I ask questions only about how they want it said.
How long are your ceremonies?
In general my ceremonies can last from 20 minutes to 50 minutes. It depends upon the selected ceremonies they wish to add: Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Music, Poems or Readings, and other special activities they wish.
 
 In Jail weddings, the ceremony is from 10 to 15 minutes.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I like to hold an organizational meeting with the bride and groom to discuss a few of the trickier parts to the ceremony itself such as: wheelchairs/walkers,
 photographers, music, flowers, train of the dress, children, security of gift tables and guestbook greeter.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, it gives everyone an opportunity to know where they are in the entrance and exit sequence as well as what they are to do during the ceremony.
Do you supply a sound system?
I have my own voice amplifier that I can bring but I have also worked with DJs hand mikes and lavaliers. They allow me to let the guests hear the replies to the wedding questions more so than my amplifier.

We contacted Bobbi in early August pretty desperate to find someone who could officiate for our marriage ceremony scheduled for Saturday, August 16th (the plans for the previous officiate fell through at the last minute!). Despite that she was already booked for the date we requested (along with the other officiates she works with, she was very helpful and willing to try to make it work. She was able to squeeze us in (ours was to be an evening ceremony). This made for a long day for her! My partner and I met with Bobbi the day before the ceremony (we live in Oregon and would be traveling to Modesto for the ceremony). We expressed a desire for a very simple but sincere ceremony. We reviewed the vows and wording for the other parts of the ceremony. We were very specific about what we liked and wanted and Bobbi delivered just as we had requested! We were very happy with the ceremony and grateful she was able to make it work for her schedule. We would definitely recommend Bobbi's services to others. She was very accommodating and willing to support our desires for the ceremony in any way possible.

I could not have asked for a better officiant than Ms. "Dracula". She is one of the most talented and wonderful human beings I have ever met. She brings something special to everyone that she meets. If you are lucky enough that I have been, that special moment stays with you forever. She didn't just marry us, she gave us an ever-living bond to each other. I can just look back on our photos and remember her wonderful presence. For pictures of our Wedding with Weddings by Roberta go to my Facebook page Verbena Quigley and click on the photos albums named "Wedding". It was a beautiful time for all of us and a truly magical experience.
