Reserved Ground is an officiant service, operating out of the Inland Empire and beyond, with a vision to help you create meaningful moments and lasting memories together with the people most important to you. Reserved Ground offers licensed officiant services for all occasions including weddings, vow renewal ceremonies, commitment ceremonies and elopements. Although Reserved Ground is based in the Inland Empire, Reserved Ground serves San Bernadino, Riverside, Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego Counties.
