Officiating

If you’re looking for an officiant, Sally, as a Notary Public, can perform civil ceremonies. “I really enjoy this part of my job. I am honored to be part of such a special occasion.” She estimates that she’s married hundreds of couples, and is thrilled when she receives Christmas cards from past couples with photographs of expanding families.

We can customize the ceremony to suit your individual tastes and budget. I also have put together my Ceremony Worksheet that can help the bride and groom customize their ceremony.
