We believe that your wedding day is your opportunity to express and share YOUR love story with as many or as few family and friends that you desire to invite into that moment. Weddings are a once in a lifetime event and we understand that couples are often overwhelmed with the weight of planning their wedding. With over 20 years experience you will find Once Upon A Wedding a great resource to help YOU express YOUR love story in ways that you never imagined with the attention to detail that your wedding day deserves. Also we have done same day weddings with planning in less than 5 questions.

We believe in fair pricing and we are highly detail orientated. We love sharing in your special day in an affordable way.

Planning is easy and we bring a fun and energetic style to the process.

Step 1) Introduce yourself to us - let us know roughly the date/ time and city of your wedding. We have officiants throughout Central & Northern Florida. With this information we will send you a quote as pricing varies by day of the week, city and officiant you select.

Step 2) Talk about the ceremony (very groom friendly) - Planning is conveniently done with an online planning form with a confirmation call via Skype/ FaceTime/ Phone (We've even planned via Text). You don't need to prepare for the session. We will walk you through our wedding planning guide and get a feel for whether you desire a more traditional ceremony or a more contemporary one, if your blending families/ cultures/ religions, if you want religious language or not and we can discuss fun ceremonies like Sand Ceremonies, Wine Box, Rose Exchange and Sea Shell Toss to name a few.

Step 3) Secure YOUR place on YOUR officiants calendar - We get numerous wedding inquires daily and the way we know you are serious about using our services is to place a small retainer and we will save your place.

What sets us apart?

Our Reviews from Happy Couples! Please read them if you haven't already done so... We are honored to have been part of so many happy unions! They've said everything better than we can begin to share!!!

We include a personalized sharing of YOUR love story in the ceremony written by a published author in the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series just for your wedding day!

We provide you with insider wedding industry information so that you can be an informed consumer when shopping for other vendors like Photographers and DJs. See our package deals exclusive to Wedding Wire Clients!!!

We have a real pastors who help you celebrate YOUR relationship RATHER THAN ones who have a religious agenda for your unsuspecting guests! We also have pastors/ officiants who support any/ all OR no religions, cultures and lifestyles. Couples often select us because we align with their faith, belief and values.

We don't require pre-marital counseling though we can save couples who are FL residents $25 on their marriage license if you spend 4 hours together privately on a couple's activity.

We have a Vow Writing Guide to help you with YOUR vows whether you want to write-your-own, "repeat after me" or simply say "I do."

We include ceremony coordination with our officiating services. This is especially helpful for venues that don't offer an event coordinator many of whom charge upwards of $1,000.

We don't charge extra to include ceremonies like those listed above in the service when you bring your own kits.

We offer 3 rehearsal options if you are interested in saving more money with our DIY Kit.

We provide help with the Marriage License Process as well as a link to a guide to any Name Changes you might desire to make.

We offer a Couples Personality Profile as a free gift to couples who book with us. This is a fun personality profile based write-up that will let you know what cartoon characters you and your fiance are most like as well as what US president you are most like along with several other bits of information. You receive the information the night before the wedding to cut through any wedding night jitters/ anxiety and give you something fun to talk about.

We have an extensive network of officiants and other wedding vendors and have negotiated very low pricing that are exclusively available to our couples.

We have available many typical items/services that you will be purchasing for your wedding day at very reduced pricing that are exclusively available to our couples.

We're very organized and efficient with our services so we're able to offer so much at a very competitive rate compared with leading competitors.

Short notice and elopements are welcome!

    Most dependable Officiant

    When we spoke with him he told us that he will take care of everything and make sure things will run smoothly but thats what everybody says. We didnt touch base back until 2 months before the wedding and everything was done via email. Then we just met at the ceremony and Rev. Jon officiated it exactly the way we pictures it. This guy is awesome. Book him and leave it to him to make your ceremony perfect. We screened and researched all out vendors and Rev. Jon is a true honest person and he will not be a part of your worries. He is even a great resource of everything else you need!
    Thank you Rev. Jon for making our wedding perfect!

    Gerri, thank you for the kind words. I was thrilled to be part of your special day and the Filipino traditions you added made special memories for a lifetime. May you live happily ever after. Blessings!
    Jon
