About

On WeddingWire since 2012

​​I've been officiating weddings since 2012 and one of my favorite things is helping couples create a beautiful, memorable ceremony that they and their guests will remember forever. My goal is for couples to have the ceremony they have dreamed of by collaborating with them to customize their ceremony to them as a couple. Many couples want to keep it short and simple, while others prefer to include personal touches like including their love story or what they love about each other, or the touch of a candle lighting, sand ceremony, wine box ceremony including personal letters to each other, or a number of other unity ceremonies. I love hearing from guests and the couple themselves how touched they were, and were even moved to tears at the commitment taking place.


I was ordained as a minister in 2012, and began public speaking in 2008. I am very comfortable speaking in front of crowds, and enjoy it very much. I’m also able to officiate bilingual ceremonies in both English and Spanish. Having learned Spanish starting in Kindergarten, my Spanish pronunciation is good.

I do many types of ceremonies including:

- non-denominational

- traditional

- same-sex

- civil

- multi-faith

- vow renewals

- bilingual Spanish/English

I also love having fun with ceremonies. My business name, As You Wish Weddings, is a nod to The Princess Bride, and I have been asked many times to include lines from the wedding scene, accent included! I LOVE doing that! I've also added lines from couples' favorite movies and shows such as Ted Lasso, Parks and Rec, The Office, Schitt's Creek, Star Wars, etc.



When I am not officiating weddings, I am a life coach, helping women transform their confidence from the inside out, to see their worth, empowering them to reach their dreams and believe in themselves.



I also use my coaching skills to help many engaged couples through pre-marital coaching before they tie the knot. This helps the couple make sure they are on the same page about the big stuff, and gives them additional communication skills to work through challenges as they arise, bringing them even closer together before making their life long commitment.

Hire her she is amazing!!

I was a less then a month away from my wedding and my officiant decided to bail on us over a family personal matter… I called around the entire Sacramento area looking for someone last minute. Erin answered and saved us! She immediately sent over all our paperwork and got right on to organizing our vows. Her scripture is beautiful and not the traditional “I Do”. Thank you for everything Erin, we will forever be thankful for all your hardwork and for saying answering my call when I was in desperate need.

I hope to never need Erin again, but would use her in a heartbeat!

Erin was wonderful! She was easy to get into contact with and very responsive. We had a date set but no location in the beginning, and she was still willing to start the process. She worked with us to make vows that seemed super special, but didn’t require a ton of speaking on our part. She was prompt and very sweet.

Erin was amazing!

First of all, we traveled from MD to get married in Napa, just the two of us. Had never met Erin but “had a feeling” when we talked on the phone. She was GREAT! Our location at a private estate was not the easiest to navigate but she was on time and did an amazing job. As a bride and groom, those are the most important moments and Erin made it magical for us. We are both grateful for her! On a scale of 1-10, she’d get 100.
