About Marriage With Meaning

Marriage With Meaning is Central California's Premier Wedding Officiant Service. Officiant Paul Howell is well known for his remarkable skill at creating highly personalized wedding ceremonies. Paul has a unique way of creating a surprisingly wonderful ceremony with you and your love as the focus, rather than a pre-scripted ceremony.

Services Offered
Marriage With Meaning comes from Paul Howell knowing that your ceremony is the most meaningful moment of your wedding day. Paul will talk with you, get to know you and find out what really makes your relationship special so that he can make your love story come alive in the ceremony. He'll take what he learns from you to make lots of creative suggestions and help with such things as your vows, readings, old and new traditions, Unity ceremonies, and how to draw in your loved ones present at your wedding. In addition to day-of formalities, he'll cover all of the little details often overlooked by others, guide you through the marriage license process, rehearsal, and connect you with any other professionals you might need.

    Thoughtful officiant - just right for us!

    I contacted Paul through his website only about 6 weeks prior to our ceremony. We were planning a small wedding (20 guests) at Allegretto Vineyard Resort in Paso Robles. Paul was very warm and thoughtful over the phone, and helped guide us through creating the type of ceremony and vows we wanted - which was much appreciated since this was a first wedding for both of us and we had no idea what we were doing! He arranged a lengthier phone interview with both of us to detail what we like about each other, stories about our relationship, etc. that he could use in the ceremony. He then sent us MANY examples of vows other couples had chosen to write for each other, to help give us a launching point for writing our own. We touched base a few times before the ceremony, and he arrived early on the day ready to roll. He tracked down our witness to sign the marriage certificate and made everything easy and stress-free on us. We found it very easy to work with him on our short timeline, and I got compliments from our guests on how lovely the ceremony was and also that they particularly liked the officiant (which I don't think a lot of people say about weddings so that was really meaningful). I wouldn't hesitant to recommend him to any friend or family member for another wedding.

    BEST Wedding Officiant EVER! Paul created a wedding ceremony better than what we dreamed of.

    From the minute we first began speaking with Paul about our wedding ceremony, we were taken with his genuine and thoughtful demeanor. He wanted to make sure we had the ceremony we truly wanted, and gave us plenty of room to create our own experience, while guiding us through ideas and sample experiences of others. He asked a lot of good questions about us as a couple, and us as individuals so he could get a good sense of who we were and what we wanted. Not only did he help us build the ceremony of our dreams, he really "got" us, and shaped everything toward what he knew was important to us.

    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! Update 9/10/18: I had the pleasure of working with Paul again this past weekend and it was absolutely flawless. He has such an ease about him, which is not only appreciated by me and my staff, but the couple and their guests, as well. I had several guests approach me and tell me what a great job he did. He just simply knocks it out of the park every time. :)

    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!
