What does an Officiant do?
Many people think an officiant is a person who helps couples pronounce their vows and exchange their rings and that's all there is to it. On the surface this is true... So you may be wondering, “What else does an officiant do?”
We set the tone by your love, engaging your guests and helping you create a ceremony whose beautiful memory will last a lifetime. We bring experience and sensitivity to your most special of moments. We extend that love - which brought you together and keeps you together - to you, your family and friends. We desire to make your love so evident that all the guests feel that love in their heart, and walk away from the ceremony saying: “We have never been to such a meaningful wedding ceremony!”, and “This is a ceremony that we’ll always remember.”
It’s good that we believe in couple-ship, and it is great that we have worked with couples before and after their wedding to help them create loving relationships. It is even better, though, that we have mastered the ability to focus only on the love between the two of you on your wedding day and communicate that not only in words, but in who we are... we call that skill being “present in the moment”, to you, to everyone there. When we say we are your “officiants for life” we trust that you will count on us to be there for you in the future.
Destination weddings are beautiful, and meaningful not only for you, the couple, but for your family and friends who have traveled to be with you. When you choose us, you choose the officiants can make it happen.
Your calming ways and beautiful words, as well as the surprise of including vows for us to our children were absolutely appreciated and perfect! God Bless you and thank you again!
