About Ceremonies by Bethel

Fun – Personal – Meaningful – Non-Traditional --- Ceremonies that truly celebrate what you two share

Ceremonies by Bethel is a professional wedding officiant based in Bonsall, California, working with couples throughout Temecula, Fallbrook, and the entire San Diego region, including La Jolla, Del Mar, and Rancho Santa Fe. Since 2009, Bethel has specialized in creating customized and non-religious wedding ceremonies that truly celebrate her couples, working with each couple to incorporate the rituals, messages, and stories that mean the most to them. She enjoys inspiring every audience of family and friends with a truly meaningful and personal wedding ceremony that celebrates this couple they care greatly about. Bethel Nathan's husband, Jason Nathan, also officiates weddings and is a proud part of Ceremonies of Bethel.

Experience
It began in 2006 when Bethel Nathan was asked to officiate her brother's wedding - a non-religious couple coming from two different religious backgrounds - and she spent a great deal of time not only looking at the traditions of their two families, but also finding out about their story and what marriage meant to them, resulting in a wedding that was all theirs.  Soon after, two other friends asked her to do the same for their non-religious and interfaith weddings, and she had found what really touched her heart.  She founded Ceremonies by Bethel in 2009, and has since married over 800 couples, thoroughly enjoying celebrating really great couples in the way that fits them best.  Ceremonies by Bethel has also been a proud recipient of the Couples Choice Award since the very first year.  Since 2014, Jason has been part of doing so as well.

Services Offered
Ceremonies by Bethel proudly officiates wedding ceremonies for all couples looking for a ceremony that is fun, personal, meaningful, and non-traditional, usually non-religious (or with a tinge to satisfy a family member), and has always been a supporter of marriage equality.  Her couples often come from interfaith and/or intercultural backgrounds, and are looking for a way to honor where they've come from but in a way that fits what the two of them particularly share.  Whether her couples describe themselves as non-religious, spiritual, interfaith, or agnostic or atheist, she works closely with each couple to create and then deliver their ceremony in such a way that touches the hearts of not only the couple being celebrated in that moment, but all those who are there for them as well, often with a mixture of laughter and happy tears.

Words can not describe how happy we are with Bethel. She created a beautiful, personable, and memorable wedding ceremony. She was such a pleasure to work with and the end product was just beyond our expectations. I would say look no further for a wedding officiant. We had so many of our guests comment and compliment on how wonderful and engaging our ceremony was. By the time our wedding day came around I felt like we had a friend up on the altar with us.

Absolutely loved having Bethel officiate our wedding! She put so much thought and effort into the ceremony and made sure that we were both comfortable with what was said during the ceremony. Attendees at our wedding raved about her and the ceremony in general! The homework (while I dreaded having another item on my to-d- list) ended up making the ceremony amazing and entertaining for everyone. 100% recommend Bethel to everyone looking for an officiant!

Bethel is the best! Definitely our go to recommendation for officiants! She is so well spoken, caring and organized. We love when we know Bethal is officiating a wedding we are photographing!

Hi Bethel, You are on our websites vendors preferred list so we thought we'd update that on here! Hope you're well and hope to see you soon! -Weddings at Twin Oaks

I have been privileged to shoot a wedding with Bethel on more than one occasion. I can't describe how much I enjoy working with her. When a couple asks for referrals for a official, bethel is immediately, the first person that comes to mind, and who I recommend.

Bethel is fantastic at what she does and even more so an amazing and genuine person with the best heart.
