No two people are the same, no couple loves each other in the same way, so why must your wedding ceremony be the same? It shouldn’t! At Sacred Wedding Vows, David and I as your wedding officiant, strive to prepare each ceremony with the two of you in mind unless you choose to prepare your own wedding ceremony. And of course we want your input as your wedding officiant. No Cookie Cutter Ceremonies. Especially with the celebration of love and joy, you deserve a wedding ceremony that has true meaning not only to you but your guests.

A wedding ceremony is more than just words, more than the wedding dress, the wedding flowers the wedding reception. It is a journey of two souls making a forever commitment to each other. A public commitment to love, honor and respect each other, You form a bond that is witnessed by all.  And so, you gather your family and friends together to witness this joining together of two lives and celebrate with you.  The words that are spoken as your wedding officiant and to each other creates the unspoken agreement that will guide your marriage. The wedding ceremony also sets the tone for your wedding reception and the fun celebration with your family and friends.

For this reason your wedding ceremony can be created from the meaning of your love for one another and then put into words, crafted through the looking glass of your heart, through the moments of your relationship. The wedding ceremony can be dynamic and flow, promise, and express what you feel inside. As your wedding officiant we want the wedding ceremony to be just right for the two of you.

Every wedding ceremony we officiate, is created from your Love Story. Through your words and memories,  We will create an authentically unique Love Story that becomes your Wedding Ceremony. No two are ever the same!  Why accept anything less?

Call me today and we’ll create a meaningful, magical wedding ceremony, together!

Due to fluxuating fuel prices any officiant services outside the 25 one way mile Tampa metropolitan radius will incur a per mile surcharge or flat rate travel charge. The expense for any overnight stay by the officiant due to the requirements of the wedding party will be the sole responsibility of the wedding party. The officiant promises to be present and fully prepared at the appointed time. If the time of service is delayed by any member of the wedding party for any reason an additional charge may occur. (This does not include unforeseen inclement weather in the event of outdoor ceremonies which understandably can not be helped.) The wedding party is solely responsible for procuring a legal marriage license in advance of the ceremony and delivering it to the officiant on or before the day of the wedding. A legal and binding contract will be signed by both parties and all fees paid in advance before a ceremony will be designed or delivered on the the day of service. Dates and times for services are booked on a first come basis. No date will be reserved before a deposit is received. Because you contractually reserve this date and time, no other weddings can be reserved for that time by the officiant therefore “Deposits for dates are non refundable”.

Additional fees for the presence of the officiant at any rehearsals will apply.

“Personal Meetings” that involve travel by the officiant will be negotiated according to time and distance and are not included in the package price.

We do not include “wedding planning” services in this package. However, we have a fully qualified and well established, award winning wedding planner on staff to serve you with any additional needs you may have from “day of the wedding” to ceremony decor with Bamboo Arches and Flowers for the full bridal party to “complete wedding detail and logistics service.”  Check out these services on our links page. The terms of this policy are legally binding and non negotiable.

For over twelve years we have prided ourselves on our “up front-no hidden fees” business ethics and the personal satisfaction of our clients. Call us if you have any questions, we are always happy to answer all inquires concerning our policies.
