Central Coast Ceremonies from Birth to Earth

Wedding Ceremonies and Vow Renewals

Planning the Wedding of Your Dreams is often more challenging than one originally imagines.  A Wedding consists not just of the dreams of the individual, but also the dreams, beliefs, values, & traditions of the intended spouse and those of two separate and distinct families.  Add in to this the aspect of community inclusion, and what you have is a wondrous, and not to mention stressful, challenge to create a day that will meet and exceed the dreams and expectations of each participant to your union!

Many couples become so caught up and over-whelmed by this challenge that they fail to realize just how important it is to have someone they can trust and turn to for assistance from the start of this journey towards Sacred Union. In fact, most often, a couple will choose their Wedding Officiant at the end of their planning, or sometimes even as an "after-thought" because they do not realize that there are people in their community who are trained to assist them in bringing all their dreams, beliefs, and traditions into the Ceremonial elements of  their wedding day!

This is the Beauty of having a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant®
officiate your wedding!

Stacy’s mission as your  Wedding Celebrant is to help you create not only the day of your dreams, but to assist you in creating a Ceremony that reflects your beliefs, values, and traditions in a way  that honors each of you as  individuals and as the couple  you are becoming. Regardless of whether you desire a private, intimate joining or a large celebration of your union, your Ceremony should reflect all that you are and all that you intend to become together.

This will be accomplished together through in-depth interviews and discussions of  symbolism, rituals, and traditions with each of you as individuals and as a couple to help craft a customized Wedding Ceremony that Honors Your Voice and your dreams of this day in  all ways and is meaningful to this life-joining you have chosen to enter into together. To get this process started, please contact Stacy today by phone or email to discuss your needs and to schedule your free, no-obligation consultation in person when possible or via phone or skype when necessary.

Don't Forget Your Marriage License!

Obtaining a marriage license is quite easy and in San Luis Obispo County you may appear at the courthouse in Atascadero or San Luis Obispo to begin the process.  Thankfully, California is (finally!) a Marriage Equality state! And Stacy is proud to serve the LGBTQ community.

In San Luis Obispo County you also have the option of applying for a confidential license. A public marriage license is good for 90 days from issue date and may be used anywhere in the state of California, the confidential marriage license (among other important restrictions) must be used in the issuing county only and the parties must already  be living together in a spousal relationship. Regardless of what type of marriage license you choose to apply for, Stacy is happy to accommodate any couple who would prefer a confidentiality agreement be signed to protect your privacy.


A Word on Ceremony Pricing from Stacy

Many hours of preparation go into a Life-Cylce Celebrant® ceremony.  I have structured my ceremony pricing to be ALL INCLUSIVE.  This means that I do not approach the ceremony creation process as though it were a fast food menu and I do not wish you to treat this most important transitional event in your life that way either.  Unlike other officiants who show up and say the same thing over and over again for each wedding they do changing only the names of the people involved, I sit down with my clients (in person or via phone or skype) and actually get to know you and work to understand who you are and what type of ceremony you want.  After our meeting I spend many hours researching, writing, creating ritual elements, further interviewing, and editing.  I then present what has been created to you well in advance of your ceremony date so that we can discuss what you like and don’t like about this first draft.  There is no limit to the number of drafts and no requirement for you to utilize or not utilize any element of a ‘traditional’ wedding. YOU are in complete control over what is said and done on your special day!

The price of your Life-Cycle Celebrant® ceremony includes:

a no-obligation initial interview (usually about an hour)

unlimited drafts of your completely customized, unique, and meaningful ceremony script

the creation of any ritual element you wish to include

writing of vows or helping you write your own

any necessary research on traditions, rituals, or customs you resonate with

facilitating the planned ceremony rehearsal

coordinating with your other ceremony professionals such as venue or event planners, musicians and DJs, photographers, etc

showing up early the day of the ceremony and professionally officiating your ceremony

the use of a portable personal AMP with microphone when needed

the care and proper execution of the legal documents you have obtained (your license!)

presenting you with an artfully bound printed keepsake copy of your ceremony script

You get all of this PLUS a professionally trained officiant with over ten years experience for far less than you are going to pay any of your other wedding service vendors.  Wedding officiants are not all created fact very few have actually received any type of education on how to create or officiate a ceremony and fewer still have received the kind of college-level training that the Celebrant Foundation & Institute provides which includes specific education on symbolism, ritual, and ceremony structure, as well as public speaking!

My ALL INCLUSIVE PRICING depends on many factors and therefore I must reserve the right to quote you a specific price based on all variables once we have talked in person, however here are the “BASICS” of my Wedding and Vow Renewal pricing structure:
