Brenda was the officiant for my wedding, and I can honestly say that she made that process so much easier for us, Especially at rehearsal. The planning before hand was easy, and she works with you to make your wedding YOUR wedding. She’s bilingual which helps if you need her to do Spanish and English. Any ways if you’re looking for an officiant, then look no further.

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 151 - 200 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Spanish • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Date and time has not yet been chosen

We were so blessed to have had Brenda be our wedding officiant. She was very helpful and supportive even with the chaos of organizing our bridal party since we were all so busy and overwhelmed. She kept us calm and did an amazing job doing our ceremony in Spanish and English. We loved her and are so thankful that she was a part of our special day!

Brenda showed up for a small ceremony on a Sunday after the holidays. Though that is not an ideal time to host a wedding, she made the ceremony special and memorable and was also patient with out lack of planning in what we wanted. I would recommend her time and again.

Had some important refinance paperwork with a deadline. Brenda arrived right on time, helped walk-me-through all the paperwork to satisfy the many signature & notarizations needs. Very warm, personable, pleasant, easy-to-do business with. If you need something notarized, reach out to Brenda. I will DEFINITELY follow my own advice next time I need notary service & call her!

Details: 2 signatures • At the pro’s location

FAQs

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

    My Base fee includes our correspondence and or meeting, "Menu" selection of the ceremony, and Day of ceremony. I will arrive thirty to forty fives minutes before the ceremony to confer with you and have your two witnesses sign the marriage license. If a Rehearsal is needed, I charge extra for attendance. A Bilingual ceremony is an additional charge. Cobro mas por una ceremonia de matrimonio bilingue. Traveling over 40 miles I will charge an extra fee. We will discuss your actual fee when we speak regarding your ceremony.

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

    During our initial meeting, in person or by phone, we will discuss your needs and desires for your special day. I will provide you with a selection of ceremonies for you to choose from. You may write your own Vows or You may add special parts to your ceremony, such as, Candle Lighting, Sand Ceremony, Dove Release, and a special reading by a family member or friend, just to name a few. Depending on your ceremony location, we will discuss and agree upon a fee. I also charge a few for attending your rehearsal. Most venues and Wedding Coordinators insist on having a rehearsal. In my opinion, all wedding ceremonies need a rehearsal. The ceremony will run smoother and look beautifully organized, if you have a rehearsal. Please don't skip the rehearsal just to save money. Your Wedding Event begins with the Marriage Ceremony.
