90-Minute Officiant 

Guidance and Resources for the Perfect Ceremony

You said “Yes” and now you’re officiating your friend or family member’s wedding. Before the celebration begins and everyone takes to the dance floor, you have the distinct honor of conducting, or facilitating, as I like to think of it, one of life’s most important moments. 

When the couple invited you to officiate their ceremony you were probably flattered, surprised, and excited. Then, as reality set in you may have started asking yourself, “What did I just agree to?” “What do I do now?” Well, I’ve created this course to answer those very questions and to help you craft and deliver a ceremony that will have your couple and their guests talking (in a good way) for years to come.

Who am I? Well, over the past 10 years I’ve had the distinct honor of marrying more than 800 happy couples. No two ceremonies have been alike and not all have been “perfect” (life happens). But I can say that each and every ceremony was a celebration of the love and commitment shared by two individuals who chose to say, “I do”. These are some of the most cherished memories of my life.
