Officiant Services 

We are Mark and Allison Stephens.  
Mari is a wedding officiant, and would enjoy working with you on your special day!. 
 
We are very professional and will work with your secular or religion. We have an arsenal of awesome readings, ceremony structures, and are  super flexible. Many are non-denominational meaning you can include or exclude traditions that don't fit your lifestyle or belief system. This is great if you've been married before, want their different religions incorporated into the ceremony, and/or are a same-sex couple.
 
We want your love story to be unique.  Your wedding ceremony can be anything you want it to be. We are open to all suggestions and we are easy to reach.   What do I mean by unique? Well, that's entirely up to you! The most important thing is that you celebrate your way. It's your ceremony.
 
 
We are open to all suggestions and can offer guidance as well.  We can get creative with readings that inspire or keep the reading simple.  We offer a Sand Unity portion for our weddings.  We are also open to any rituals  that capture the heart  and spirit of your relationship.  Write your own vows or use some of our suggestions.  You can include your children to truly celebrate your blended family.  The choice is yours.  At the end of the day, we want you to remember your wedding ceremony as being exactly what you wanted.  It all begins with a conversation. Give us a call today.

A type of unity ceremony, the wedding sand ceremony expresses the coming together of two people or two families into one new family.  It is a very simple idea that can be incredibly powerful. Typically, each person has different colored sand and takes turns pouring it into one clear vessel, forming a layered effect. Sometimes just the couple participates, and sometimes the couple's children and/or parents join in with their own colored sand, adding to the layers of colors, and expressing the harmony of the entire family. Package includes a commemorative keepsake jar. Also note if you bring your own sand unity kit, the price will still be the same for the ceremony add-on. Let's discuss how you would like to do this!
