Through the Denver, Colorado based Wedlock Officiants, Scot officiates weddings across Denver, Breckenridge, Vail, Estes Park and deep into the Rocky Mountains. He wants to ask, what good is finding the perfect location, inviting closest friends and family and getting dressed up if the ceremony is going to be awkward, boring and forgettable? That’s because to him, the most important thing a ceremony can do is help get a couple lost in the moment and in doing that forever answering the unsaid lingering question in guests minds, "Did they make the right choice?”
Scot’s background is in project management and software engineering, but it was with helping his wife on weekends to grow her flower shop that he would watch wedding vendors apply their craft. And while he was impressed with most of the vendors he watched, he was unimpressed with the quality and professionalism of the officiants. Putting his money where his mouth is, he started officiating part-time and absolutely loved it. It wasn’t too long after that when he retired from project management to be a full-time wedding officiant and hasn’t looked back.
Scot rejects the notion that officiating is just speaking words, that a ceremony is just a formality or that it's alright for an officiant to project their views onto a wedding. In his relentless pursuit to be the best officiant he can be, he offers non-religious, christian and interfaith ceremonies that are engaging, reflect the couple and their views, and keeps the focus of the ceremony on the two of them, not himself. Only once a couple has gazed deeply into each other’s eyes and made their promises while lost in the moment does he believe that a job is done well. Reach out and not only will Scot help you determine if he is a good fit, he’ll also share his guide on “How to Choose a Wedding Officiant” to help you in your search.

Scot was super professional and we felt comfortable with him right away. He gave us pointers and listened to what we wanted our ceremony to be and made it happen. Everything went great! And since Tom is in the Air Force, Scot gave us a military discount that we really appreciated.Sent on 12/31/2019
Wedlock Officiants's reply:In my previous life, my work would routinely take me to military bases all around the country. And the one thing that stuck out to me was how hard that life is. Now I'm not just talking about serving, but just everyday life. Not only are those in the military subject to the whims of being sent anywhere at anytime, but 99% of the places they could be sent aren't exactly vacation spots. In fact, they are typically harsh, out of the way places where no one wanted to live, so they put in a military base. I honor everyone who chooses a life of service, particularly those who have to undergo hardship to serve.

Scot is amazing in every possible way! He is so open and warm. In our first meeting with him really opened our eyes to what we could do with a ceremony. We had no idea! His detailed nature was extremely helpful in fine tuning the details of what went into the ceremony. On the big day, we were pretty nervous but Scot arrived early and was a real calming presence. He crafted the perfect ceremony. And afterwards our guests kept commenting on how touched they were by our story of falling in love.Sent on 12/31/2019
Thanks to Scot, for a perfect ceremony!
Wedlock Officiants's reply:My favorite part of the consultation is the last part when I say, "Do you have any questions?" And that's because by that point, I know I've already answered them all. For me, it's kind of a victory lap knowing that throughout the whole consultation process I've talked the couple through each and every step, option and expectation. Alice let me know she had a dozen or so questions up front but I asked her to let me go through my consultation process first. Then if there was something I hadn't covered we'd talk about it after. Sure enough, by the time we were done, I'd covered everything she wanted to know and more. And as an officiant, I really enjoy exceeding expectations.

Scott was great, he worked with us and did everything to accommodate our schedule. He even drove out by Breckenridge for the ceremony without any issue or hassle.Sent on 11/11/2019
The ceremony was perfect. I highly recommend Wedlock Officiants.
Wedlock Officiants's reply:It is so nice to be able to work both large heavily planned weddings and also small intimate elopements like this one with one week notice. That's the beauty of wedding ceremonies. They are flexible and you can make them be whatever you want them to be. Jacob and Marissa were simply wonderful to work with and it was so easy to put everything together just the way they wanted. Although I need to put out a special shout out to their wonderful dog who not only made the trip but also served as witness!
Micah does a fabulous job of building a ceremony specifically to fit the couple. HE designs the ceremony with them, for them. He is extremely professional, and a spectacular speaker. I HIGHLY recommend him, and Wedlock for any couple getting married.
