Introduction: Voted Sacramento’s top Wedding Officiant. I have recently been featured in Forbes, Bloomberg Law, The Sacramento News Observer and on iHeart Radio. I enjoy helping couples say “I do.” I allow you to be as creative as you like, while staying within officiant guidelines. I have officiated over 200 marriages since becoming ordained in January of 2020. I take pride in my work and have also trained over 350 ordained ministers how to conduct the perfect ceremony under the Efficient Officiant Workshop. I also specialize in baptisms, vow renewal, pet memorials and I welcome the LGBTQ community. I am also a Notary Public.

Raquel was just the perfect choice as the officiant for our wedding. She came all the way to half moon bay to be a part of our super intimate wedding and made it even more special. She was early, extremely professional and brought such a great energy to the ceremony.

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Raquel was an amazing Officiant for our wedding. She was caring and catering to what we wanted and was very helpful the day of. She was kind enough to travel for us and was extremely helpful before the ceremony. We highly recommend Raquel for your wedding events, we can't thank her enough for what she did for us.

Raquel was absolutely incredible. She was so kind and warm, she really made our day so special. I feel so fortunate to have had her a part of our wedding day. ♥️ If you’re looking for an officiant, look no further! You have found the perfect one with Raquel! (We have adopted her as a family member… everyone loved her! It’s hard not to!)

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

    My pricing is based on the current rate in my area. Attending wedding rehearsal and lodging for travel over 50 miles is not included in the quote.

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

    Meeting with the couple over the phone or in person before the ceremony is very important. I like to get to know them and their personalities so that I have an idea how best to meet their needs. I also like to give them a chance to share any information they have so that I can be clear on their expectations and deliver exactly what is requested.

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

    I have married over 100 couples and have personal experience in working with officiants and wedding planning. Although I do not advertise for wedding planning, I do allow for questions and ideas to be shared for feedback if asked. I also have trained over 30 weddings officiants on how to properly conduct a ceremony.
