Introduction: With a doctoral degree in marriage and family, I am equipped to walk with couples at as deep a level as they may need or want. For me, this is not a business; it's a passion. I do what I do for the love of helping people in meaningful and lasting ways. Such passion is reflected in the undivided attention I give to each couple I am privileged to work with. I affirm and am eager to work with couples from every gender identity and sexual orientation. It is an incredible honor to be invited into the lives of two individuals in such an intimate and meaningful way as this. I do not take my role lightly, and I truly love helping couples plan their wedding day and begin their marriage well. I would love to talk with you more!

We had a great experience with Edward DeSilva as our officiant! He is down to earth , punctual , professional, and able to personalize our wedding with his wording in a way that made sense to our souls . He did a phenomenal job and took all the pressure off of the biggest decision for us! We can’t thank you enough Ed!

Ed did an excellent job officiating our wedding! From start to finish he was very helpful, informative, and thorough. He provided excellent samples to choose from and even offered assistance with writing vows. He was very responsive and kind. And I love that he even coordinated his outfit with us! I’m very happy we selected him for our big day! Book him! You know will not be disappointed!

Wedding Officiant

Edward was a pure joy to work with! From talking before we hired him, to communicating promptly and precisely making the process that much easier! Our favorite part was meeting in person, getting to know us on a personal level. I cannot thank Edward enough for being a part of our wedding! He handles everything and anything that is thrown at him and he manages to do it with a smile on his face. He makes everyone feel at ease and is so easy to relate to! He made sure that our wedding day ran smoothly and rolled with all of the little issues that seem to pop up on your wedding day. I highly recommend Ed as wedding officiant. If I could give more stars I would ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wedding Officiant

Ed was a really good officiant for our wedding. He is right on time and waited patiently for us as we were running late, he is very helpful throughout the rehearsal and actual ceremony, my family loved his company as well during our rehearsal dinner, he is very easy to get a long with, we couldn’t be happier with his work. Would totally recommend him. Thank you so much again Ed!

Wedding officiant Edward DeSilva was quick in responding to me. From beginning to end he explained how he works with different individuals and what they want to make their ceremony unique. He sent me samples of different ceremonies he has done and let me tweak to fit our needs. I will definitely recommend Ed for future ceremonies to family and friends!

FAQs

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

    No complicated price scheme. My fee (which varies according to services requested) is more than competitive and includes my services on your wedding day as well as whatever number of meetings are necessary to plan the ceremony itself. If counseling is desired, there is an additional fee that may be negotiated at the time.

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

    I've done doctoral work in the field of marriage and family. I am equipped to do in depth pre-marital counseling (when it is requested). My years of experience in serving as a wedding officiant have provided a breadth of experience in working with couples of all kinds and from all backgrounds.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Quite simply, my love of people and the desire to serve others at a meaningful level.
