I have been officially ordained since April 2005. Since the start of my new "business", I have performed
NEARLY 1000 weddings!
How did I get started? Well, while attempting to plan my own wedding, I had many problems finding an officiant because neither my fiance nor myself were affiliated with a church or religious organization in the area. The driving force behind my ordination was simply due to the realization that there are so many other couples out there in the same situation that I KNEW I could help. And let me tell you what a wonderful feeling it is to help other couples out and see the joy on their faces as they stand before me at the altar.
During the "interview" process (I think of it more as getting to know each other!), I try to get as much information as possible so that I know how to help you plan for your special day. This can all be accomplished through a simple email exchange or a short phone call. You can even go ahead and fill out the questionnaire I offer to all my couples right here!
Even after those initial "conversations", I think you'll see that I'm very personable and outgoing. And while I'm a "hired professional for the day", I can't help but care about how you feel about the entire process. It's your big day and you should be enjoying it, not worrying about the little details of your ceremony.
Your wedding day is a very special day, filled with family, friends, memories and emotions. As your officiant, I will do my best to see that your ceremony will always be a treasured part of your memorable day!
Here are links to a couple very customized wedding ceremonies I've performed. They are both older... it seems not many people use videographers these days, I'm afraid. Enjoy!

For peace of mind on your wedding day, leave it to Taya! We had large outdoor wedding with only 2 months planning and DIY décor. The rehearsal would’ve been a disaster if it weren’t for her. We had no plan and I was pretty frazzled by that point, but that wasn’t a problem. She immediately put us at ease, guided us through a successful rehearsal, and even helped us set up tables afterwards. Taya prepared beautiful vows written just for us and I was able to walk down the aisle ready and relaxed!

We could not have picked a better officiant for our wedding!! Taya was very organized and overall a great person to work with. She genuinely cared--she wanted to get to know us as a couple and made the process of planning less stressful. Her rate was also very fair and within our budget. Our wedding ceremony was beautiful, and we owe a lot of that to Taya! We can't express enough how great Taya was---we would recommend her to anyone!!!

I have been the DJ at several events Taya officiated and she is a natural!
Wow what can I say. In a time when you see vendors just putting in the time, Altered Vows by Taya REALLY adds that personal touch. A+
I've had the pleasure of photographing several weddings that Taya has officiated and each was equally beautiful, so full of love and warmth. Taya is a natural and her ceremonies are some of the best I've witnessed. She does an extraordinary job of personalizing ceremonies to fit each couple, knowing when light humor will be well received or when to stick with the more traditional. Her ceremonies always leave a lasting impression. I highly recommend Taya, she's a wonderful ceremony officiant.
