Lockdown update: I am still providing services in the Phoenix area during the lockdown. Groups need to be under ten. I am also available for ceremonies via video.
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.
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.
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.

Pamela did an amazing job at our wedding. She was warm, well spoken and respectful to everyone. Even though it was her birthday she still accommodated our wedding. She incorporated and acknowledged everyone in the wedding. We both received lots of complements from our guests after the event about her. We would highly recommend her.Sent on 10/21/2019

Pam was the perfect fit for our wedding celebration. From the beginning of planning until after the ceremony was completed. She was more than willing to help suggest vendors, locations & any arrangements she could help with.Sent on 02/24/2020
Being a destination wedding, we were able to sort everything out over email or phone prior too. A few days before the wedding we were finally able to meet in person. She brought fantastic energy & ideas for us to conclude all the final details.
Pam made all of our family & friends feel welcome & included. She knew exactly how to include my husbands son so he felt involved & well loved at the wedding.
The wedding ran almost an hour late & she never once made us feel badly about the situation. She kept everyone calm & took care of a few pictures while everyone waited. Every guest commented on how fantastic the ceremony was, how personal it was & how well Pam made everything fit so perfectly.
I would highly recommend Pam to anyone getting married in the area. She brings great energy & love to all those around her. Thank you very much Pam!
Rites of Celebration's reply:Thank you for making Phoenix your destination wedding. They way you dealt with the challenges you had getting to the altar speak highly of the power of your relationship. Best wishes and thank you for sharing your wedding with me.
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!
