...personalized and creative

Classic Custom. This is where it gets really fun! The Classic starts off with a free introductory meeting for you to see if your chosen officiant's style fits with what you're looking for. This meeting also allows you the opportunity to review our extensive collection of ceremony resources and brainstorm ceremony ideas with a pro. (This meeting is best if in person, but if you're planning your wedding from out of town--no worries. We can chat with you over the phone or via Skype video).

The Classic Custom offers you the opportunity to co-create a ceremony that is beautifully written and performed, and has a warm and personalized feel. We offer wording selections from a wide variety of options and you're free to add your own wording to any part of the ceremony, if you wish. Our philosophy is that every ceremony reflect the values of the couple, so it can be as religious, spiritual or secular as you want to be.

You'll work one-on-one with your officiant, so by the time your wedding day rolls around, you'll be good friends. Generally, couples meet with their officiant twice--for the complimentary meeting above as well as a second meeting to write their customized ceremony.
