About

New beginnings should be moments you treasure...

My favorite part of any wedding is the ceremony. After taking part in hundreds of ceremonies across the state, I have helped create almost every type of celebration you can imagine. I'm proud to say that after each wedding I perform, people will often say, "That was perfect". Also, I am one of the few local officiants who will travel to the Sequoia National Park, Sequoia National Forest, and Kings Canyon National Park for your ceremony. I have an intimate knowledge of the many perfect locations that each area offers. Of course, I also perform ceremonies in and around Tulare, Kings, and Fresno Counties.

Your ceremony is about YOU and should give your guests an idea of who the both of you are. Whether it’s religious or non-religious, shorter or longer, simple or more in-depth...you have an idea of what you want and that’s what I want to provide. Typically, my ceremonies are short and simple. No one has ever said to me, "Gosh, I wish that ceremony could have been longer!" People want a ceremony that is respectful, honoring, and intimate. Most importantly, you are in charge and I want to provide exactly what you want on your special day.

I led two churches in Visalia for 9 years. Although I’m not a paid pastor, I still serve on the teaching team of my church and I am still a licensed pastor which allows me to conduct wedding ceremonies. I conduct between 30 - 40 weddings each year.

Congratulations and I look forward to working with you...

He was absolutely amazing!

Darin was absolutely amazing! If your getting married he is the one to choose. He made our whole wedding! From the beginning to the end he was so perfect to work with. He helped write the most perfect ceremony for us. I would choose him again in a second!

Money well spent!!

Darrin was a pleasure to work with!! He understood our vision. He helped make the process easier and run it smoothly. We say this because when we got engaged in 2019. We were preparing for our BIG DAY on October 23, 2020!!! As we were doing this and getting ready we kept hearing about COVID-19. We honestly thought that it would never happen over here!!! But then when it crossed state side it hit really hard and so we decided to postpone our marriage celebration until October 22, 2021 and he was right there guiding since day 1!! We could not have picked a better Officiant to Marry us!!! Thank Darrin for everything!!!
