  • Dr. Bruce Holms

    (1 reviews)

    What does Dr. Bruce bring to the table? The wedding ceremony is a sacred ritual, where, as a couple, you enter into a commitment to take this life journey of loving, caring, and sharing with each other. Witnessed by your family and friends, you will vow to be at each other's side no matter what life brings your way. Like an intricate dance, the spiritual union requires that as marriage partners, you will adapt to and maintain balance with each other physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. By being linked together, your lives become a duet, where each partner shares responsibility for the quality of the dance you create. You have decided to be married outside the doctrinal definitions of a particular religion or spiritual path. You now have the opportunity to put your signature on the wedding ceremony, so that it reflects your individual and combined beliefs and values. It is a wonderful opportunity for self-expression and a declaration of the power of love in your new life together. Marriage represents the commitment of two people to each other and to their union; it is important that both individuals are strongly represented in order to make the ritual truly reflective of who they are as individuals and as a couple. I ask you what you want — and then I work with you to create a ceremony that will represent your desires. When you take the time to symbolically and verbally reflect on the very personal meaning of your union through the process of designing your own wedding ceremony, you give yourselves the opportunity to really clarify and share your deepest feelings, needs, and desires with regard to these aspects of your lives. The very act of creating the ceremony can be a sacred journey of expression and commitment to one another. What I can bring to the table is a helpful, loving ear to your needs. I have no particular agenda other than to help you through the process of creating a personalized ceremony that reflects the level of spirituality you wish. Creating Your Ceremony - You have final approval over the script. - I will collaborate with you every step of the way, so that the ceremony is tailor-made for you. - There will be no boilerplate ceremony to be imposed on you. You are encouraged to personalize your ceremony. - I encourage, but do not require pre-marital counseling. - I will officiate your ceremony at almost any site! All fees and costs are fully disclosed -- no hidden or surprise charges. There are always last-minute changes, so I will be understanding and do my best to cooperate with you. I will do my best to answer all of your questions and concerns. I want you to feel comfortable with me, so feedback is always welcome. I am ordained as a Christian minister of the Universal Life Church in the state of California. However, my personal beliefs have no place in your ceremony. What you believe is of the highest importance. I can, with your guidance, represent the spiritual aspects of the eternal witness without any conflict. Please contact me for more information.

  • Wedding Santa Barbara

    (1 reviews)

    Since 1981 as an ordained, nondenominational minister, I have had the distinct honor and privilege to work with nearly 1000 couples on a deeply personal basis. Each year, my work in this service becomes more and more exciting. In three to four sessions, we talk in depth about the couple's relationship, their dreams, goals, interests and passions; we talk about their families, both the good and the difficult if it exists, and their friends. Out of our meetings, we then create together; I provide tons of information for ceremonial ideas, sample vows, a PDF on how to write their own, readings, etc., the ceremony of their dreams and more! The ceremony is so customized and so personal to the couple and their families and friends, it can't be used for anyone else. I am completed devoted to this high level of service, because an officiant not only can make or break their wedding day; the minister impacts their marriage for the rest of their lives.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Dr. Loretta Redd, Wedding Officiant

(21 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

Being a wedding officiant allows me to use a lifelong collection of skills as a professional writer, speaker, psychologist and occasional crisis manager! It is the happiest occupation imaginable and is a great privilege to literally change people's lives. Every ceremony must reflect the individuality of the people before me and the story of their love, so I never repeat the same ceremony twice. Some couples may not put as much time into their ceremony as the flowers at the wedding, but it is the words of the officiant that make the marriage legal. Why not also make it memorable?!

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Most of my prior careers have been crisis-oriented; this puts me in the occupation of celebration and happiness .

    Rodney S.

    Dani was a complete comfort for us. We planned a last minute wedding and she was very reassuring. Couldn't have ask for more. She emailed us what she had planned to say prior to the ceremony to ensure all was well. She asked questions to give us that personal touch and she provided a beautiful poem for our daughter to read. Dani's smile was an instant calmness for us both. She showed up early and even stayed for pictures. Thank you so much for everything you made our day even more perfect for us.
