Claire, the Rev. Sparkles, is a wedding celebrant located in magnificent and world-renowned Pebble Beach, CA, just beside Carmel-by-the-Sea. Claire is a licensed minister who has been officiating ceremonies in California since 2013. As a former professional writer with a passion for romance, Claire gets to know each couple and crafts a one-of-a-kind celebration that fully represents their romantic bond. Claire believes weddings should be solemn and also - ideally - sweet and fun. Claire's specialty is short and sweet elopements and she often will take on elopement ceremonies (shorter and more intimate and casual than full wedding ceremonies) even with a short lead time of a day or two and still add in personal elements.
The Rev. Sparkles is available for weddings and elopements in exclusive Pebble Beach, also Carmel, Pacific Grove, Big Sur, Monterey and Santa Cruz, California. Weddings in other parts of California are available by special arrangement. Knowing that every celebration is unique, Claire will tailor her services to provide you and your guests with a once-in-a-lifetime ceremony experience. She will officiate gatherings of all faiths and orientations as well as non-religious and interfaith ceremonies. Claire is happy to add in bilingual elements and also offers special Conscious Wedding options.
For added peace of mind, Claire now offers affordable pre-wedding counseling to couples in CA who may need assistance starting their new chapter. Ask about this option.
