Wedding Officiant

Mercedes was absolutely wonderful in every way. My (now) wife and I has a very small intimate non-religious wedding and Mercedes was everything we could have hoped for and more. Even though we did not have an opportunity to meet her before the ceremony itself, we were completely confident that it would go off without any issues. She was responsive, professional and more than patient with our very busy schedules. Happy to respond whichever way was prefered, whether it was via text, phone call or email. The ceremony itself could not have been more perfect and her choice of words brought both of us to tears the first time we read them. We would both highly recommend Mercedes to anyone looking for an officiant. :) :) :) :) :)

I was very hesitant on who to choose to officiate my wedding ceremony. My husband and I are Hispanic and perfected the ceremony to be in Spanish. Mercedes did an excel and job portraying us as a couple and made it very unique and special to us. Thank you Mercedes for an unforgettable moment!

Mercedes did an excellent job on our wedding ceremony. She went over and beyond. She took the time to explain the whole process. She is bilingual and very passionate about her work. We are both happy we chose beach side. I would definitely recommend Mercedes to anyone planning to get married.

Mercedes was amazing! Any questions or concerns I had were answered right away. Mercedes is patient, understanding, and very informative. Many things I did not know or think of while planning my special day, thanks to Mercedes everything was covered. The vows and ceremony written by Mercedes was beautiful and well put together. Although it was a very windy day, Mercedes stayed calm and went on about her responsibilities with ease and a genuine love for what she does! Having her officiate and help with plans made my day all the more special. Mercedes is a genuine and overall good person who you would want to have by your side on such an important day!

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

    All fees are according to size of the wedding and distance. Ceremonies start at $190 in Manatee County.

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

    I like to talk with my couples over the phone and explain my services and packages. We can start contacting via text and phone and later we can meet in person if I am available for an extra fee.

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

    I have a bachelor's in criminal justice but my love and years of experience as officiant is what makes me great at what I do. I really love being an officiant 💕
