About Us

My associates and I are non-denominational wedding officates.  We do, I DO’s.  We officiate ceremonies in the states of Maryland, West Virginia, Northern Virginia, DC and Pennsylvania.  We offer several services that are too numerous to mention here, but as a brief overview here are the basics:  

Fees can start as low as $300 for elopement services.  Most ceremonies average around $600 with rehearsals and travel costing extra.  We will come to a location that is more than 2 hour away, but if an over night stay is required,  a hotel room is requested so we can accomodate you and your wedding needs.  A $150 deposit holds your date. 

Fees included research on cultural, social and spiritual ideas, booking and holding your date and of course the ceremony. 
If you are active duty military or getting ready to deploy please ask about a discount, giving a discount as a way of thanking you for your military service. 

Rehearsals are an option I strongly recommend if you have more than 4 people involved in your wedding. Rehearsal fees start at $175 and must be scheduled in advance.  If you choose not to rehearse, a rehearsal guide will be provided, to assist you through that process.   

Meeting you and your fiancee to get your vision of your ceremony is essential.  Vows are prepared based on what you choose to share with your officiant.  A draft is emailed to you for your approval and together we work to get the words and the emotional elements appropriate for your ceremony to be memoriable.  We will meet with you as many times as necessary.  Phone calls and emails are unlimited.  

On the day of your ceremony, if you don’t have an event planner, we can provide one for you for a resonable fee.   If not, your officiant will do their best to direct your guests to the right spot,  make sure everyone turns off their phones, everyone is in place and the guests stand when the bride enters the room.  Your officiant will ensure you get through your vows; and try to keep you calm.  Your officiant is also available for a blessing prior to sitting down to eat at your reception. 

Because there are so many officiants available, there is back up just in case your officiant has a family emergency.  You will be taken care of at no extra charge and no drama. 

Please consider Weddings by Sandy your resource for all of your wedding needs. 

We are available for other life ceremonies such as baby blessings, new business blessings and funerals

Sandy Bearden is a WONDEFUL officiant if you're going non-denominational. A few words to describe her: flexible, honest, professional, intelligent, funny, genuine, and personable. Sandy, my husband, and I clicked immediately at our first meeting. She gave us such sound advice that personalizing our ceremony/vows was a piece of cake! Sandy never once pushed anything on us, but provided timely feedback. I'm pretty sure that most of the reason why our ceremony turned out to be absolutely stunning and memorable is because of Sandy Bearden!

Rev. Sandra Bearden of Weddings by Sandy was my wedding officiant. She did a fabulous job and I would recommend her to anyone who wants a ceremony their way. She has a book of poems, rituals, vows, sample wedding ceremonies that really helps you to create a wedding ceremony that's meaningful and personal. Jennifer Garcia
