Why Hire a Professional Wedding Officiant?

Many couples are confused these days to why hire a wedding officiant.

I’m not religious so why would I have a wedding officiant?

Uncle Bob can do it for free! He just might be a bit tipsy is all.

It is so much more personal for a friend to do this for us!

Well the reality is - do you want to be Roasted or embarrassed during your ceremony. A professional ceremony has a range of emotion captured, that makes you happy and excited to be there together.

Keep the roasts and toasts to your reception.

A marriage ceremony by Amy (or another professional) gives you the legal binding aspects of a ceremony (and Amy handles turning in your marriage license)! You don’t want to worry about being embarrassed or things not moving smoothly the day of your wedding. Why add stress!

There are MANY moving parts to a wedding ceremony that event planners support or venue coordinator assists with, but think of a Wedding Officiant like a Conductor at a Symphony. If one instrument gets out of beat with the other beautiful sounds then there becomes and “off key” sound. YIKES!

My goal is to make your ceremony the best ever and a memory that lasts for each Anniversary.

Allow a professional to capture the essence of your relationship so you can thoroughly enjoy the time of the brief ceremony that you get to celebrate with each other and be celebrated and witnessed by your family and friends.

A wedding is not to be taken lightly. It is more than a party, the ceremony sets the stage for your wedding.

Amy was so awesome for our wedding! Since the first contact with her she made us feel comfortable and made us feel she was invested in our needs and making our day so special! She did an amazing job with rehearsal (which was offsite from the boat we used at Lake Pleasant) and the ceremony and vows were perfect. I would recommend anyone who is getting married to use Amy if you are looking for someone who is reliable, great communicator and provides an awesome ceremony.
