Golden Oak Weddings: Naturally Beautiful Wedding Ceremonies and Confidential Marriage Licensing
Our goal is to co-create a naturally beautiful wedding ceremony for you, whether set in a friendly forest or an urban chic hideaway. We draw from your stories and style to compose original, customized ceremony texts and rituals, and help you discover and articulate the values that will guide you through your life together. We think calm and happy couples enjoy their weddings more, so we do all we can to help you share delightful moments (and a little gratitude) throughout the process.
Our dedication to excellent personal service, creative and thoughtful content, and reliability sets us apart from other wedding officiant services. We work with you to realize your true wedding (even if you don't quite know what that is yet) and we donate a portion of our fees each month to local non-profits as part of our "share the love" commitment to our community.
We're also authorized to issue confidential marriage licenses for ceremonies taking place anywhere in California. We make the legal part of getting married sweet and easy so you can focus on other parts of your wedding experience. See website for details.
We've been providing friendly, well-informed, and trustworthy service since 2001, and we're proud LGBT/marriage equality allies. We welcome couples of all faiths (or lack thereof) and are based in Southern California.
We also offer elopement and intimate wedding services through our wedding imprint MarriageToGo.Com.

Warm, genuine, responsive, responsible, detail-oriented, organized, empathetic, and sincere-- those are just a few adjectives that come into mind when my new husband and I think about our experience with having Elizabeth as our officiant. There's a ton more, but we're trying to be "succinct" here. =) I half joke that Elizabeth was not only our officiant but also my therapist in the time leading up to our wedding since I was a ball of anxiety planning everything. Elizabeth was EVER so patient and responsive with my flurry of nonstop emails and questions, as well as providing constant reassurance which I know was far beyond her job description.Sent on 08/28/2018
Elizabeth really goes above and beyond, not only providing a huge variety of personalized scripts for your wedding (if you so choose), professionalism of making the legal process very easy, but she also takes the time out of her personal life to get to know you as an individual and as a couple, so that if you choose, you do not feel like you are getting married by a stranger, but rather an old family friend.
Thank you so much for being THE best officiant, friend, and guidance for us in one of the more stressful times!
P.S. This raving review comes from a couple that self-describes themselves to be pretty high maintenance and picky! =)

A friend recommended Elizabeth's services to us - it was one of the best recommendations that we got. Elizabeth was one of the best choices we made. We are very thankful for all of her helpful tips, her calming presence, and her reminders of what marriage is really about.Sent on 04/08/2016
We got so many compliments on the ceremony and how beautiful it was. Thanks to Elizabeth we also planned some parts of the ceremony that were very meaningful and memorable to us, to our close friends, and to our parents. We also wanted to incorporate some cultural elements into the ceremony with a hand blessing. Elizabeth helpfully suggested an arrangement for where a table for the ritual should be placed.
Elizabeth also has a lot of wisdom about love and life. Many of our family members seemed to be quite contemplative during and after our wedding. Her message made us all stop and think and reassess our relationships and our efforts to love one another.
Before the ceremony, Elizabeth was always super prompt with responding to emails. She also help prepared us mentally for the day in terms of carving out some time to spend one-on-one together, warning us of competing demands for our attention, and reminding us of the importance of what we were doing among all the fuss and fancy of the wedding day.
We were working in a short time frame, and Elizabeth was on top of everything. She helpfully kept us on track in terms of sending us potential readings/wordings, receiving feedback from us, and sending us revisions. She is a true professional, organized, and a kind and generous soul.
Elizabeth also went above her duties in meeting us on a Thursday night before the wedding for some paperwork to save us some time on the wedding day. She also printed out beautiful copies of our vows, readings, and messages to our parents. Our parents loved the cards that she printed. These were delightful surprises. Thank you, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth of Marriage to Go is the best! She makes everything easy and simple prior to the wedding day. Our big day Elizabeth preformed a memorable and perfect ceremony for my husband and I. She kept everyone smiling and interested. She also helped with keeping everything going smoothly our whole evening. I highly recommend Marriage to Go!!!Sent on 01/22/2015
Elizabeth is one of the finest Officiants I've ever worked with over the course of a wedding day! Highly recommend!
Elizabeth has an amazing energy, she gives 100% of herself to her clients, and is up for anything. I have known her personally and professionally for several years. If you are looking for an open heart and giving spirit to bless your union, you found her.
