Honoring the wedding traditions of the past… while moving forward with pride!
Each one has their own style, personality and presentation. We happen to be the fun, happy and lighthearted type of Chaplains. We tell our couples that if they are looking for the long winded, poetic and reading from a book type of Officiant, that’s not us!
We love being part of a fun and uplifting celebration and believe the ceremony should segue to the reception not the “Oh Dear God, we have to sit through this to get to the party”.
There is a BIG difference between being a comedian and being lighthearted and we know the difference. Plus, by showing our couples how they can be as creative in the ceremony planning or showing them how simple we can make it, lends to the ceremony reflecting the two of them, not who we think they are.
If you weren’t aware, outside the walls of the Church you can be very creative in your ceremony ideas. Your ceremony ideas are endless, so don’t settle on an Officiant that won’t let you show a creative side in the ceremony planning process.
Chaplains (Clergy or Laity) have the ability to support individuals in time of need without personal judgment or religious agenda. This allows Chaplains to serve couples of all faiths, beliefs and even non-beliefs in planning a wedding ceremony that reflects their passions and personalities!
In addition to our ceremony always being fun, lighthearted and romantic; our styles and personalities allow for us to always respect our couple’s beliefs with a foundation that reflects who they are! Whether their ceremony is Civil, Spiritual & Traditional or Christian; we can help.
After a few thousand meetings with couples to discuss their celebrations there is one common denominator; The majority of couples have never gone through the Officiant selection process before and have no idea what to ask, what to look for in an Officiant and most importantly, how to express their wishes and desires for their ceremony. They simply trust the Officiant to handle it. We break down this barrier and show each couple how they can be part of the magic!
Your personalities should shine and be presented on your wedding day, not what we think it should be. We simply walk you through the ceremony process, from processional to recessional and everything in between. The Vows From The Heart “Ceremony Handbook” allows this to happen; Easy, step by step instructions and ideas. You choose the style of your presentation; Really, it’s up to you! We serve as a Wedding Chaplain giving us the ability to respect and observe all Faiths, Beliefs and yes, even those couples Non-Beliefs without judgment or with a hidden agenda.

This is your wedding day, not ours. You tell us what you want, we put it together and deliver the ceremony without fear on your part of…. “What is he or she going to say”. Since you have made the selections, there’s no mystery at all and you can rest assured that the ceremony is taken care of, the way you want it to happen.
