About Pacific Coast Weddings




Rev. Judith Malear, an Ordained Interfaith Minister and notary public with San Mateo County, is a warm, creative, and inspirational wedding officiant. She uses her knowledge of many faiths and spiritual beliefs to assist you in creating a meaningful ceremony that fits your religious and spiritual beliefs and cultural heritage.

Rev. Judith has been performing customized ceremonies at oceanfront locales and other San Mateo Coastside and Bay Area locations for the past eleven years. She studies world religions and philosophies, and practices yoga and meditation. She has enjoyed two long-term happy marriages and has three children and six grandchildren.

Creating your wedding ceremony, vow renewal or baby blessing

Rev. Judith will provide you with a selection of ceremonies. If you wish, she can incorporate your beliefs, family traditions and cultural heritage into one of these ceremonies. She is also adept at creating memorable ceremonies that include each couple’s favorite passages, poetry, songs or rituals and can offer ideas for including children in the ceremony.

Long-distance planning

Rev. Judith has experience assisting couples in planning their event from a long distance. She has married many couples from Europe, Asia, Australia and Canada as well as couples from throughout the United States.

Choosing your oceanside wedding location, San Francisco wedding location, or Bay Area wedding location

Since Pacific Coast Weddings is located a stone’s throw from the Pacific Ocean (30 minutes from San Francisco International Airport or Palo Alto on the Peninsula, and just 30 minutes south of San Francisco), you can choose a relaxing, intimate ceremony on the beach, in an elegant country garden or in the spectacular California redwoods. You can also choose to have your ceremony (large or small) at other locales in the Bay Area. Some of the venues where Rev. Judith has officiated include the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, the Weston St. Francis Hotel, Fairmont Hotel, the Cliff House and the Presidio Chapel in San Francisco, various Peninsula hotels, and numerous wineries.

Pacific Coast Weddings services

Services include a lovely legal ceremony, handling of all paperwork, a keepsake copy of your ceremony, an AV sound system for the minister, and a confidential marriage license (available upon request).

You don’t have to go all the way to Tahoe or Vegas for an “intimate getaway wedding.” If you are eloping or wish to have a more spontaneous event, Rev. Judith can issue a confidential marriage license and perform your ceremony on short notice.

    Judith married us on Labor Day at Cypress Meadows in Moss Beach. She did a fantastic job on all accounts! I particularly appreciated her calm advice and support as we drafted our ceremony and personalized it just for us. She was more than willing to help us add unique touches like Tibetan bells, calling in the four directions, doing a group vow and so much more! Judith is also very efficient - which was great since we were both so pressed for time while planning a wedding and my having a new job.

    Last, we lost the sound on our video of the ceremony and Judith went above and beyond by "re-recording" the ceremony so it could be edited in.

    Highly recommend her!

    We cannot recommend Judith enough for all the she has given us! Our wedding day was truly amazing and magical. Just one week prior to our wedding, our previous officiator called us to inform us that she could not conduct our wedding and provided no back up per our agreement. In a panic, I found Judith's website and fell in love with the warmth in just her photos. We met with her in person just day's before our wedding. She was just amazing. With such short notice, it was as if nothing had ever happened. She was able to assist us in finding a the perfect location, music, and assisted us with our custom ceremony. We are truly blessed and so very grateful for Judith! With so much appreciation for the best ceremony ever - Kathy and Veronica.

    Judith is very professional and friendly. She has the experience to know what can go wrong and she asks the questions beforehand to make sure none of it happens.She met everyone and made them feel very comfortable before the wedding.

    Great officiant!

    Judith Malear is one of the most kindhearted people by nature, that I know. She has always been warm and friendly at every wedding that we've worked together, and she's the same if we run into each other at the market. Anyone who works with Judith of Pacific Coast Weddings as their wedding officiant knows that she is accommodating to all of their needs, while performing her services professionally, and with loving care. Judith is very easy to be around, and always puts clients and co-workers at ease, but at the same time she knows when it's time to take control. I enjoy working with her, and know that no matter what type of wedding service one wants, she will deliver. In one case, it was a Halloween wedding, where Judith dressed the part to officiate for "Frankenstein" and his bride. She let them paint her face green. It was joyful and fun. I can safely say that those who work with Judith, or is fortunate enough to have her as their officiant enjoys the experience, and comes away with incredible memories.
