Introduction: Hello! I am Jodi Peters, a thoughtful and experienced Wedding Officiant in Southern California. I love to create Sweet and Simple Ceremonies tailored to fit each couple. My amazing customers over the years have been all ages, races, religions and orientations. While every ceremony is unique, I always provide the same result: a beautiful event that is stress-free and full of love. My main focus, always, is to make your ceremony perfect for you! Let’s talk about your details and preferences. I’m often asked about “hidden extras” so please know that my base fee of $225 really does cover consultations, prepping and traveling for the ceremony, customizing your vows and all details to your desire, performing the ceremony and turning paperwork in to the county. The only “extras” added when I am your Officiant would be if you want me to run a rehearsal, meet for an in-person counseling or planning session, my help getting the marriage license from the county due to unique circumstances, or for me to set up my sound system (each add $65 to the total). I am sometimes hired to be a Coordinator for the whole event which is completely different and involves a lot of managing other vendors, venues and participants. But that’s a conversation we can have if you are interested! ** Update** I am fully vaccinated and now allowed to perform outdoor ceremonies without a mask if you prefer. All Ceremony requests must fit California’s current health guidelines with safety precautions taken. I am happy to accommodate Zoom and livestream for your loved ones who cannot attend. All counseling and planning sessions are now REMOTE only. I do not accept any health insurance for relationship counseling.

Wedding Officiant

If I could choose all 5 qualities that Thumbtack offers, I would. Jodi is very sweet & has such a beautiful vibe about her. She is a professional and very engaging. She grasped the concept of what we wanted for our day very easily. She has a light and joyful sense of humor. She really took the time to have chats with me days and weeks before the wedding. She shared my excitement with me & helped with my confidence. She honored my request of coming over to my mother's house as the ladies side of the bridal party was getting ready so we could meet face to face, as I was coming from out of state. I had her read my vows ahead of time & she was just so present & available. A very kind hearted spirit & the ceremony was beautiful. She interacted with us & our guests & created a very relaxed environment for us, as we were both a bit nervous. A lovely day had by all. Highly recommended.

Jodie helped me plan a wedding in less than 2 weeks in quarantine and was so amazing to me and my now husband. She cares about you as an individual and took the time to really understand me and my husband’s relationship. She’s so sweet and kind.❤️

Jodi, was awesome. Last minute we had both our Pastor and Notary cancel on us. Jodi came to the rescue, she quickly responded to our message, respected all our wishes and was very professional and a great personality. She walked us thru the process of the marriage license and took care of everything for us. Was very happy with the her services.

Jodi did a great job! She responded to our messages in a very timely manner, and when we had to reschedule the wedding date due to unexpected issue, she was very understanding and tried to accommodate our needs. We had a wonderful wedding.

Background Check

Jodi Peters


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

    My degrees are in Political Science and Sociology. Most of my career has been focused on teaching (high school, adult ed and college) and writing. As part of my consulting work for non-profits, I found myself often presenting before panels or larger audiences. Having always considered myself shy, I was surprised to discover a love of public speaking. For several years now I have been honored to host events and serve as a Master of Ceremony. In 2013 I became ordained specifically to perform weddings because it brings me so much joy.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Young couples, mature couples, gay couples, those who want pre-marital relationship coaching and those who do not. My favorite thing is to find the right style and words to make your event perfectly suited to you.
