Visit our Ceremonies Page for an overview of all our ceremonies. And don't worry if you don't exactly fit into one of our levels. We can put together something special just for you. We want you to have the ceremony elements you want without making you pay for ones that you don't.
Our dedicated, professional Monterey wedding officiants, ministers and justices of the peace are on a mission to eliminate boring (a.k.a. beige) wedding ceremonies from the face of the earth (or at least our corner of California!). We'd like to add you to our list of couples who've choosen a colorful, creative and joy-filled ceremony over a cookie-cutter version.
When it comes to wedding ceremonies, we're the anti-beige!
We specialize in officiating nondenominational, secular (civil) and interfaith wedding ceremonies, commitment ceremonies and vow renewals throughout the Monterey Bay area, including Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Aptos and Santa Cruz. We also serve Big Sur.
Getting (and being!) married rocks! We'll make sure that your ceremony reflects that every step of the way!
How the process works
Assuming you have found someone to marry--we can't help you with that part--you're on your own--then here are your next steps:
1. Determine which ceremony level is best for you (see chart at right).
2. Choose an officiant. Click here to see why we think we're the greatest thing since sliced bread when it comes to officiating your wedding (not that we're biased!). Then, once you're convinced of our awesomeness, head over and check out the bios of our Monterey wedding officiants and see who resonates with you.
3. Not ready for #1 or #2 yet? That's okay--we get it. There's a lot to think about and your choice of officiant is a highly personal one. Unless your wedding day is right around the corner, you've probably got some time. Just fill out our brief inquiry form and Lyssabeth's owner Maureen Thomson will get back to you within one business day with more info and answers to your questions.
Vince was great! He was personable, friendly, warm and sincere without being syrupy, if you understand my meaning. He was prompt and weathered the wind and chill. I would highly recommend him. In fact, I already have. Thank you for a lovely wedding day.
Stephanie and Deane, married on November 10, 2012 at Carmel Beach by Vince LaForti.
