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.

Pam was amazing! The ceremony was touching and personal. She included our family and our son just like we had requested. The photography suggestions she made lead to some of our favorite photos! I could not give Pam a higher recommendation! She really made our wedding special!Sent on 05/09/2018

Beatiful ceremony where we had the best advice to tailor it so it felt like it was all "ours"

Captured the spirit perfectly
Pamela was simply amazing, responsive, worked with us at hyper speed, and despite many changes from us she captured the spirit of what we wanted perfectly. She truly cares about the importance of the ceremony for each partner and wove our wishes into it seamlessly blending traditional with unique.Sent on 05/14/2019
Rites of Celebration's reply:It was my pleasure to be able to be your officiant. And, I learned more about a couple of cultural elements that I had not worked with before, so it was fun and a learning experience.
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!
