Welcome to a Joyous Officiant. My son Ben and I Officiate all over Tucson. I founded A Joyous Officiant in 2011. We do small private weddings at our venue, and We will travel to your location only in Tucson. We have done a lot of local celebrities!

Let us help you create your special ceremony! We have officiated at most venues in Tucson, including restaurants and parks.

If you have a special tradition you want to include, we will work with you. We do handfasting, jump the broom, candle and sand ceremonies. We have even done ceremonies on A Mountain and Gates Pass, numerous times. Check our website for pictures and information on the local venues.

We work with a Spanish translator if you need one. We do not cover Mt Lemmon or Madera Canyon. WE DO NOT TAKE CHECKS FOR PAYMENT.

We are LQBTQ+ friendly.
