Weddings, Handfastings, Commitment Ceremonies and Vow Renewals
Your special day of commitment should be one of amazing memories. The perfect venue, the perfect food and clothing are easy to find from the many resources on line, but finding the right officiant, is a little less easy. Many couples come to me not knowing what to expect or what to ask. My job as your officiant begins with our very first contact. I'm here to answer your questions and to guide you through the process of creating a ceremony of your dreams. I am LBGTQ friendly and I serve all couples of all beliefs. LOVE is LOVE.
When you contact me, we find a time and location where we can comfortably get to know each other and together we create your special ceremony. We incorporate ideas you have, family or cultural traditions, and lots of suggestions if needed. If you are looking for a heartfelt ceremony, I'm sure my past couples will agree, I'm your officiant.
My fee for the wedding starting at $300 includes the planning and rehearsal if needed for weddings in the Phoenix metropolitian area. After your ceremony I capture a few photo imagaes of the day.
I handle the filing of your signed marriage license For a commitment ceremony or vow renewal, I provide a special certificate for the day if you desire.
My services are very flexible. I serve all couples. And I offer non-religious, religious, hand-fasting options. Let me know what works for you.
I encourage the participation of children and pets if the venue allows the later. Children can either participate as part of the wedding party and/or as part of a family bonding ceremony after the couple has been announced.
Do you want to add a unity ceremony, like a unity candle, sand ceremony, time-capsule box, or other special activity?
Do you have an unusual request for a location or element? Let me know,
Please check out my website: www.ritesofcelebration.com as well as additional information on this site. I have been performing ceremonies for nearly 15 years and a lot of my reviews appear on other wedding services such as Thumbtack.
I'd love to officiate your ceremony.

Rites of Celebration's reply:Thank you for selecting me for your officiant. It was my pleasure and your venue at the Castle Hot Springs was such a beautiful setting. I was so relieved that the wildfire in the area did not affect your special day. Best wishes.
This is an excellent wedding vendor. We highly recommend!
Thanks for endorsing our business Pamela, and we feel exactly the same about your service. When we show up and we see you there we know that the officiating part of the wedding service is going to go perfectly smooth! The bride can cross that off their Worry List. Its handled! Looking forward to working alongside you again soon :) Cheers, Chad Zaneis Owner - Hey, Bartender!
