Introduction: YOUR wedding should be exactly how YOU want it--not a "cookie cutter." Experience matters to craft YOUR wedding. I've been performing customized weddings for several years, but am not an old "stick in the mud." Weddings are all that I do; they are not a side job. YOU have my full attention. I offer you lots of experience from having officiated an average of 100+ customized weddings and vow renewals every year and have 190+ mostly 5 Star reviews on Thumbtack. YOU get to select what amount fits within YOUR budget for my fee. It is an ALL-INCLUSIVE FLAT FEE payable the day of your wedding prior to the start of the ceremony. I do NOT "nickel and dime" you with fees. I'll work with you according to your budget. *NO MILEAGE CHARGE *NO TRIP CHARGE *NO FEE TO HELP WRITE YOUR VOWS *NO FEE TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR CEREMONY *NO FEE TO MEET AT A MUTUALLY CONVENIENT LOCATION, DATE, AND TIME TO DISCUSS YOUR WEDDING PLANS AND TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS OR A ZOOM CALL *NO REQUIRED DOWN PAYMENT OR ADVANCE PAYMENT I officiate a large variety of weddings and vow renewals: secular, interfaith, religious, lgbt, etc. (NOT rehearsals) only in English. I work diligently to perform YOUR ceremony exactly how you want it.

We had a great experience and highly recommend hiring Mr. Peden. Communication was clear and consistent, including the hours prior to the ceremony. Mr. Peden was very flexible and truly allowed us to personalize our ceremony to make it our very own and unique. The ceremony was memorable and we are truly blessed to have discovered "Your Special Day" for OUR special day!
