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.
