Washington DC Wedding Ceremonies – Full-Scale
Full-scale weddings are a joy to us at DC Officiants, for the amount of personalization we’re able to incorporate into a couple’s ceremony. We’re well-known for creating completely unique ceremonies for our couples, that reflect their love story, their values and beliefs, and their own vision for their special day. Your DC Officiant will work directly with you, collaborating with you on your preferences: do you want a religious, spiritual or secular wedding? Do you want the tone to be more formal or more laid-back? Do you want to use traditional vows or write your own custom vows? Whatever you’re dreaming of, we’ll make it happen.
Because of this collaborative approach, matching you with the perfect officiant is an integral part of our process at DC Officiants. When you contact us, we’ll gather all the information we need to connect you with an officiant who can seamlessly carry out your wishes. Best of all, you’ll be able to speak directly with that officiant, whether at an in-person meeting or via video chat or telephone, so that you feel completely confident that it’s a great match. We also make the hiring process easier than you can imagine – you’ll be able to sign your contract online and submit your credit card payment at the same time. We respect our clients’ time as much as we respect their ideas for their ceremony.
In preparation for your special day, your officiant will work with you to create a complete ceremony script that will be submitted to you for your approval before the wedding. That way, you’ll know that your ceremony will be performed exactly as you’ve envisioned it, with no surprises whatsoever. After your wedding is over, DC Officiants will ensure all paperwork is filed, so that you know your marriage is legal and you can embark on married life with the very best memories of your wedding day!
