1. You make a promise/vow to one another of your own free will.
2. You are pronounced husband and wife by someone legally sanctioned to do so.
3. You present a valid marriage license and it is properly signed and returned to the county clerk.
The rest of the ceremony can be filled with anything you like!. This is what makes the ceremony special and unique to you.
A good ceremony helps you as a couple set the tone for your lives together. The words that are said are the public statement about the life you intend to lead together. It is a ritual that truly transforms you into husband and wife. And it is quite amazing that a few words from the minister, are the catalyst that makes this all happen!

Stephen really helped my husband and I out...We had a bit of an "officiant emergency" 20 days before the wedding and had to find someone fast. My husband and I knew Stephen because he officiated one of our friend's wedding a couple years ago, and he was memorable. Stephen not only took us on with such short notice, but he went above and beyond to accommodate us in multiple ways; he was willing and able to incorporate a lot of our own ideas into the ceremony; he was accommodating with our budget; he met up with us at a time that was good for my husband and I (because this close to the wedding, we didn't have a whole lot of free time). I would recommend Stephen to officiate anybody's wedding...he turned a really stressful situation into another thing crossed off the list (and not just semi-crossed off with some reservations and concerns- truly crossed off the list).Sent on 11/25/2015

Stephen was our officiant on the day of our wedding. He made sure that our ceremony was smooth and sent us drafts for us to review before the day of. He is extremely well spoken and his voice was the voiceover on our wedding video. His prices are also very reasonable. We shopped around and spoke with a few officiants and once we met with Stephen we knew immediately that we wanted him to be our officiant. He was also extremely professional and he showed up on time and well dressed on the day of. Thanks Stephen!Sent on 06/29/2013

While my wife and I did not have any problems planning the wedding, we did do it under a very quick timeline. We had to make decisions quickly on several things. Making the decision to use Stephen Paul Merriam and Amy Daves was absolutely the right decision! The two of them far exceeded our expectations. They made sure to answer all our questions and then even answer some we didn't know that we had.Sent on 08/25/2012
Stephen Paul Merriam and Amy Daves did a wonderful job as officiants for our wedding. We were fortunate enough to have both of them perform our wedding at the same time. While it sounds a little odd, it worked great! For the vows and promises, they were able to alternate speaking which made it that much more wonderful that we were exchanging promises.
They listened to what we were saying and then helped us to improve on our thoughts. They were responsive to our phone calls and emails. They made the planning fun and the ceremony romantic.
We were friends with them from before the wedding so we expected them to naturally be friendly. At the same time, they were very professional: recommending some minor changes, guiding us to better decisions and doing a wonderful job. While we expected it already, it was still cool to see. It was watching a friend do something that they are very good at and at the same time benefiting from them.
Great work especially marrying same sex couples! keep up the good job!
