Your wedding ceremony-Your Day, Your Way!!

wedding ceremoney, same sex weddings, non denominational ceremony, officiant, beach wedding, orange county wedding, los angeles wedding officiant
Often during the interviewing process (via phone, email or text) I'm asked, "how long or how much time does the ceremony take?", great question.

My simple answer is generally 15-20 minutes, yet it will totally be up to you as a couple what you desire within your ceremony and how long you'd like it to be. Remember, it goes so fast the actually day, ceremony and reception compared to all the time and planning you have now invested into this glorious day.

Typically, I send to my couples several samples for their review; reminding them to keep in mind they can add, subtract, cut, and paste till they have a perfect sonnet that represents them as an individual and now becoming a married couple.

How to choose a officiant for your LGBTQ wedding ceremony

As a non-denominational officiant I have had the pleasure  and honor in serving all blends of couples who have wedded.  My experience is that couples across the board including LGBTQ couples have many similarities when planning their wedding as "traditional" weddings . I emphasize the word traditional because for years the country placed man and a woman as the only couples getting marrying titling them bride and groom (this still could be to your wedding, but it is not necessary  always the case in LGBTQ weddings).

LGBT Wedding- Wedding Officiant Thoughts

First and foremost, I believe there is no one vendor or DYI tip or trick that is all inclusive of anyone's marriage/relationship preferences. Yet, what is apparent across the board by all couples about to marry is the desire to create a special and magical wedding day. Working with professionals that have your best interest at heart is extremely important. Professionals that bring easy to the couple's wedding day  when tempers can be short (you have worked really hard to get here), months of planning is final here and your deep desire for it to be perfect for you and your guest.

Engaged, setting the date, sendingt save the date, who will be in the wedding,  wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and the list goes on. You have decided on a beach wedding (so the look can be a bit more casual.)

So next , you have been  asked to be a brides maid at your family or friends wedding, the first thoughts for some is OOOOOOOOOO my another brides maid dress. Commonly these days, more times than not,  you have been asked to expense your own dress, yet the bride has decided what she wants her maids to look like.

Wedding Ceremony 101

Wedding Ceremony 101
I do today and forever more..


Wedding ceremonies can be traditional or as unique as each couple. If you want a ceremony created especially for you, make sure you choose an officiant who acts as a guide and co-creator, rather then a director.
 
There is no specific way or design that has to be done within your ceremony. There are just few standard lines the officiant needs to incorporate into your ceremony (we will address them later in this article) yet for the most part it is all about your sonnet from one heart to the other.
