Today you are creating wedding memories for a lifetime!  Just like every couple is special and unique, so should the words in your ceremony be.  Personalized for you!

We can do a civil ceremony (like a justice of the peace would do), a beautiful little ceremony, Christian ceremony or a customized ceremony especially for you and same sex weddings.  Whether we are joining a bride and groom in marriage, doing a vow renewal or a commitment ceremony it is all about you! Let’s make it special.

Couples with children can make them part of the ceremony also. I will say their names in the ceremony, let them know what joy they bring to this union, for we are not just joining two people we are making a family or joining two families.  Our children are one of our greatest blessings. When you see their eyes light up and the smiles on their faces when they hear their names and that they are part of this special day it will warm your heart. This is just one of the many ways to make your ceremony yours.

Your wedding day should be stress free.  I will come to your venue, hotel, family home, beach location, or help you in choosing the place. Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places on earth to join together.

Ceremony prices range from $125.00 to $375.00 depending on the specifics. Please call 530.307.9008 or e-mail for details.

California marriage license and notary fee for license is an additional $75.00, which can be issued day of wedding or we can meet prior to the date so you have one less thing to think about on your wedding day.
