Introduction: Good day to you and I hope you are staying healthy in these troubling times! I've been getting this question alot lately, "do I provide marriage licenses ". The answer is no. You have have to get it thru your local courthouse or a notary that does that. You can apply online at your county courthouse and make your appt to pick it up. That is what you'll bring for me to sign after the ceremony and yes I am available to officiate your ceremony at a location of your choice. The ceremony fee is anywhere from $300 to $450 depending on location. If you want photography added in, then what I provide is a beautiful ceremony, signing & mailing your license & around 100 to 200 pictures (or more, depending on how many hrs you need) for fully edited, digital download photos ready for print. The fee is $300 for photographer for 1 hr. Additional photographer hrs are at$150/hr. I have several officiants around the southern California area so I'm sure I can accommodate you. I also have bilingual officiants on staff as well. Let me know if you'd like to chat and get more information! Wendy Rieley The Perfect Union Minister & Photographer

Holli K.

Wedding Officiant

When my fiance and I were looking for a marriage officiant for our destination wedding we wanted someone who was easy to talk to, that was dependable and that would make our wedding day go smoothly. When we came across Reverend Wendy Rieley she marked off all of those on are list. She showed up on time, talked with us each before the ceremony on how we were feeling and how our ceremony would be conducted and what to do. She was so personable with my friends and family, and she even gave us a keepsake handout of our ceremony. Would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable officiant to make their wedding day special and go smoothly!

Wedding Officiant

Wendy was truly an amazing person to have with us for our special day. She ensured that we were both relaxed and very comfortable. It felt as if it was just her, my fiancé, and I on the beach. I couldn’t have picked a better officiant. Please don’t make the mistake and overlook her. She goes above and beyond. Truly a wonderful gem to be around and work with. Thank you so much Wendy!

Wedding Officiant

Wendy did an amazing job for us and made everything very easy for us. She guided us and her speech was exactly what we wanted. She even went the extra mile by taking all of our pictures for us as we did not have our own photographer. She has a great personality for any wedding!

We were very pleased to work with Wendy. She responded to emails in a timely manner, arrived early to our ceremony, and even gave us pointers to make sure we were picture perfect. She also did an excellent job officiating our ceremony.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I try to be competitive with the pricing of my services however I do like to make sure that you get the most value for your dollar! There is a travel fee outside a 100 mile radius from my address so when I send you a quote, it includes the travel fee!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I do like to get a feel for the bride and groom by talking with them about their ceremony by giving them samples to look over and then writing a ceremony for them to approve which they will get to have as a keepsake.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Well whenever I run into something different I do lots of research as to how the ceremony should proceed and how the bride and groom want it, so I would say that all my Education and Training is by experience!
