About

On WeddingWire since 2018

Serving the Washington, DC, area, Randy Lioz is a wedding officiant who creates fun and light-hearted weddings with just the right level of emotion.

A Uniquely You wedding offers:

  • Unique process, incorporating input from close friends and family
  • Sermon all about you, and what makes you special as individuals and as a couple
  • 2 hours of consultation included!
  • Available throughout the DMV area
  • Spanish or German content optional

Choosing a wedding officiant should be about finding someone on your wavelength, who can give you the wedding that fits with who you really are as people.

I use a unique process—working not just with you as a couple, but also with the people closest to you—to create a ceremony that celebrates what makes you special. My clients often say they feel as though I've known them for years.

I specialize in no particular religious tradition other than an abiding sense of family and community, and I've been ordained through the American Marriage Ministries.

Services Offered

Uniquely You Weddings offers customized vows and can also perform all or part of your wedding in Spanish or German. I also offer vow renewals and a ceremony rehearsal.

I can also provide a classic Porsche Speedster for you to drive off into the sunset after the ceremony — so romantic!

My Values

I also work to bring people together in my professional life outside of weddings! I help them develop relationships regardless of their ideological differences. I regularly run workshops bringing liberals and conservatives together for productive conversations that help them to stop demonizing one another and start seeing each other as people who want positive things for ourselves and our communities.

Strongly Recommend Randy


We were fortunate to have Randy as our wedding officiant in DC. From the very beginning, Randy's responsiveness stood out; he made us feel like a top priority, never too busy for our questions or concerns. Randy's approach is personal and thorough. He scheduled meetings with us as a couple to get to know us and to ensure that our ceremony script would be deeply meaningful. What's more, he even reached out to our chosen family members and friends to gain further insights into our relationship. He even thought of making/made the script trilingual (English, Russian, Spanish) and offered others valuable ideas to enhance the meaning of our ceremony. These personal touches made a significant difference in the final ceremony script.

Randy's support extended beyond officiating. He offered to assist in any way he could, even stepping in as our day-of coordinator. During the reception, he guided our guests through the various event sequences, from the first dance to the toasts, in a friendly and natural manner, ensuring everything flowed seamlessly.

We also rented his classic car for stunning nighttime photos in DuPont Circle, resulting in incredible pictures. He literally has a lot to offer, a one stop-man that will give that special touch to your wedding.

Overall I would say, Randy's personal touch is what truly sets him apart as well as his reliability, always on time and keeping every promise he makes, providing peace of mind. He isn't just a service provider; he's a person who genuinely cares about making your special day perfect. We couldn't have asked for a more dedicated and talented officiant and coordinator. Randy helped making our wedding an unforgettable experience, and we strongly recommend his services.

Amazing Officiant!

Highly recommend Randy! He put together a beautiful and personalized service with only meeting us 6 weeks before our wedding day. He took the time to get to know us and talk to a few of our friends and family, and built it into the ceremony. It’s like he had known us for years! He even worked in some parts in Spanish, which my non-English speaking father appreciated. Truly a talent!

The best!!

Randy made our ceremony so special and unique to us. He took the time to meet with us, as well as our family and friends to ensure he understood our relationship perfectly! The result was a funny, heartwarming, and genuine ceremony that we, and our guests, loved. He let us pick and choose elements of the ceremony we wanted to include, and surprised us with his own personalized monologue based off of everything he learned about us throughout the process. He is new to the DC area, but you are in such capable hands with Randy!
