Wedding Ceremony Officiating
"Catherine was AMAZING! We used her as our officiant and day-of-coordinator. When we began wedding planning, my husband and I decided that we wouldn't be hiring a coordinator because it just wasn't worth the money, and how hard could it really be to do it ourselves? We were so, so naive. Catherine was a lifesaver. Because we were trying to save money by DIY'ing a lot of our wedding, it turned out to be really important that we have someone the day of our wedding making sure everything turned out how we wanted it. I am super OCD, and Catherine did such a fantastic job of accommodating all the little changes I made and executing my exact vision for my big day. She really went above and beyond both the day of the wedding, and helping us out the month leading up to the wedding. She even had an assistant helping out the day of the wedding for no extra charge. She was worth every penny and then some. She was always so quick to respond to messages, emails, and texts. And she's a really fun and awesome person, which made her fun to work with! She did a great job of drafting a ceremony script for us, and then working with us to personalize it. When you see her in action it is so clear that she really knows what she's doing. Whether it's officiating, coordinating, or both, do yourself a favor and book this wonderful woman!"

I LOVE marrying all varieties of couples! My absolute favorite part of Officiating is spending time getting to know each couple, learning their love story, then being such an important part of one of the most special days of their life. I love that no two weddings are the same; each unique and special no matter how intimate or grand.
I am a Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure annual passholder, and lover of The Grinch, so if having your ceremony inside Universal Studios Orlando or Islands of Adventure (maybe in front of Hogwarts Castle *wink wink*) is an option, I would love to be there!
The ceremony officiating process:
CONSULTATION: LET'S CHAT TO SEE IF I AM THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOUR WEDDING! Consultations are always free and can be done in-person, over the phone, Skype, or Zoom. (If you choose a video meeting you are almost guaranteed to meet my kitties, and I expect to meet your fur babies as well!)
CEREMONY SCRIPT PROCESS: HERE COMES THE FUN PART! We will work together to create the perfect personalized, custom script for your ceremony. I always tell my couples that they may not know what they are looking for now in a ceremony script, but once the script is written they will have an idea of their likes and dislikes. My past ceremonies average 20 minutes but you choose the script length and you have final approval of the ceremony script.
UNLIMITED SCRIPT EDITS AND ADDITIONS: WITH UNLIMITED SCRIPT EDITS AND UNITY CEREMONY ADDITIONS THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS! Want to mix guacamole or build a sweet lightsaber as your unity ceremony addition? Let's do it! Once we go over ceremony details I will draft a script for you to review and you let me know what you think. What you like, don't like, what you may want to add. You can even have friends or family come forward for a reading if you'd like. The end result will be the perfect ceremony you never knew you wanted!
WEDDING DAY: OMG, THE BIG DAY IS FINALLY HERE! I will arrive early to the ceremony venue to meet with you, your coordinator, DJ, videographer and photographer, beer donkey, cocktail hour magician, etc. to answer any questions, give high fives, or do a mic check, if needed.
FILING THE MARRIAGE LICENSE: IT'S OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL! The license is signed and notarized after the ceremony, and there are two spots on the marriage license for up to two witnesses to sign if you'd like (not legally required but always a nice memory). I will take your marriage license with me, then file the license with the County Clerks office and you will receive your official paperwork from the state up to 10 days later. For more info on obtaining the marriage license before the wedding, please check out my FAQ page.
