About Marriage With Meaning

Highly Personalized Ceremonies on California's Central Coast and Paso Robles Wine Areas

In your lifetime, you will get only a few milestone moments that alter the course of your life forever. Your wedding is one of the most exciting, important and memorable of them all. It's the only day that specifically honors the two of you, the love you share and draws in the people who've been there with you along the way. For that reason your wedding ceremony should speak vividly of the uniqueness of you, your lives, your relationship and your love, all in a spirit of celebration!

Rather than using a generic script used for every couple, each ceremony that I write is original and highly personalized to shine light on your love and your life together. The goal of my work is to give you a ceremony that conveys the deep meaning and joy of your love and your commitment to one another.

After 11 years as a wedding officiant, I have a keen understanding of the elements of a successful relationship and marriage, the intuition to perceive what is important to you as a couple, the writing skills to express those concepts into your wedding ceremony and the public speaking skills to make your wedding day memorable for you and your guests.

I'm a professional officiant because I believe in strong, vibrant and lasting relationships and have found that marriage is the most multi-faceted and wonderful of all. 

I'm eager to hear from you or meet you in person, over the phone or video chat in a free "get acquainted" consultation to find out how we can make your wedding ceremony come to life. Please write me or call me; I'm easy to talk with and would love to hear from you.

Paul was terrific. He picked out just the right things to say and the readings he picked were so wonderful. He put in words what I was thinking and didn't have time to do. He was a big help and so friendly. He's the best.

We live in Texas and our wedding was in California. So, as you can imagine, planning remotely can be a bit daunting and nerve wracking. However, planning the ceremony portion of the wedding with Paul was absolutely seamless. We seemed to connect immediately on the phone and his organization really put me at ease. It is obvious that Paul enjoys helping couples craft their ceremony. I highly, highly recommend Paul. He is helpful, prompt and genuinely kind. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you, Paul!!

I finally had the pleasure of working with Paul on a recent wedding and was so impressed. We have very similar philosophies about how a wedding day should go. Smooth, easy, not rushed. He took a page right out of my book, reminding the couple to breathe and take it all in. His calm, cool demeanor was appreciated. Paul just has an amazing energy about him. I would definitely recommend him to future clients, and hope to work with him again very soon!

I have had the pleasure of working with Paul many different times and it is always a great experience. He is one of the nicest people that I have met and is extremely professional. He is always at the rehearsal the day before the wedding to make sure that everything goes flawless for the big day. You can tell that he is extremely passionate about what he does and you can assure that your ceremony will go smoothly and be full of passion and love with Paul leading the way. I would highly recommend him for anyone that is searching for an officiant, you will not be disappointed!

Paul was GREAT to work with! He was friendly, professional and has a great sense of humor. We loved working with him and highly recommend him.
