About Capital Ceremonies

Your Ceremony; Your Voice

When two people choose to join together in marriage, it’s a personal and precious decision.  We craft wedding ceremonies that are just as personal.   Your ceremony should be an expression of your heart and soul. Simple or elaborate, traditional or cutting-edge, formal or casual, we create and perform beautiful and meaningful experiences tailored just for you. Our ceremonies emphasize your values and personalities so each one is different.  We work with couples of all religions, cultures, and beliefs and also perform civil ceremonies.  We have been have been serving the greater DC area since 2004 performing weddings, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies, handfastings, family blendings and many more. We have always been proudly gay-friendly and have been honored to perform over 200 same-sex weddings in DC and MD.

Capital Ceremonies' principal is A.C. Warden, a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® and  interfaith minister.   She says "I work with you to create a memorable celebration that will resonate with you and your guests for years to come.  My goal is to make your wedding day truly the day of your dreams."

AC was truly amazing. From the first time we met with her we found that she was kind, very thoughtful and intuitive with our needs. She listened deeply to us and created the most beautiful ceremony based on our requests. As a multicultural, same sex couple we wanted just the right energy to deliver our ceremony and searched for quite some time. We knew AC was the one for us immediately! While we thought our requests may have been a challenge to weave into a cohesive ceremony, she somehow managed to do it effortlessly and delivered our ceremony with light and grace. Our family and friends were truly moved by her delivery and warm energy. We highly recommend her. Look no further.

A.C. was fabulous. We worked with her for our non-denominational ceremony for a couple of months prior to our wedding. During our first meeting with her, we were immediately impressed by her vast knowledge of different types of rituals and readings and also her keen interest in our families and our love story. We weren't sure exactly what type of ceremony we wanted to have, so having many options and ideas laid out was helpful for us. We exchanged around 5 drafts or so of the ceremony. A.C. revised each draft as necessary based on our input and also discussed with us her suggestions. She also always responded promptly to emails.

Our ceremony was perfect and everything went according to plan. We have received many compliments on how beautiful and personalized it was. We can't recommend A.C. highly enough!

AC is a gifted storyteller and ceremony specialist. She takes a unique delight in working with people to create ceremonies just for them. I'm honored to be her colleague.

Ac is one of the VERY few people I will recommend for wedding officiating. She does an incredible job!

If you are looking for an officiant to preform your ceremony look no further. With Capital Ceremonies will be more then satisfied with their professionalism.

All I can say is SUPER! A true professional. Capital Ceremonies is on top when it comes to Ceremony Services. I recently had the pleasure of working with A.C Warden and she is great to work with. A.C comes highly recommended in my book! Thanks again for being such a team player. Thanks, Jennifer.....
