owner + lead wedding officiant
I'm a Las Vegas marriage officiant who excessively uses ellipses...craves Thai iced tea, brakes for wild rabbits, and is a bit of a "bull in a china shop" when it comes to taking the lead! With a love language of "acts of service", I find myself an eternal Bridesmaid, doting on my couples and worrying about their details.
My quest to become a wedding officiant, a licensed Reverend, a PhD of ceremonies - if you will - began during the planning of my own wedding. After countless interviews, I struggled to find the perfect minister. Not feeling comfortable with a stranger blessing my marriage - or someone who was disconnected from "my love story", or someone distracted by their own beliefs - I sought an officiant who was non-judgmental, unrehearsed, and REAL. Yet, this proved to be a difficult task.
Frustrated with the lack of creativity in the valley and narrow belief systems, I was suddenly fueled to start authoring ceremonies for interfaith and cross-cultural couples...myself. I switched career paths and began representing engaged couples who march to the beat of a different drum!
Completing my ordainment and licensure in 2011, I uncovered a passion for representing the everyday love stories surrounding us. Contemporary, odd, even...unexpected...everyone has their own lil' fairytale waiting to be shared.

Norma is the most reliable woman. She has my full trust. (I'm a Leo, so, if you know anything about the zodiac, then you'll know that is an AMAZING STATEMENT.)
As an officiant, she's the "hostess with the mostest" who can wrangle a hyped-up bridal party like nobody's business! A singer of sappy love songs and a super-fan of Jane Austen novels, she could thrive on a few cases of Diet Coke in a downtown Barnes and Noble bookstore for at least a week - I just know it!
With a talent for event planning, Norma was surrounded by friends who already worked in the wedding industry, so it was natural for her to join the fun as an ordained Las Vegas minister in 2014.
Believing strongly in the institution of marriage, she began studying under me and instantly felt at home assisting couples with the details of their Las Vegas elopements; she also adores the natural high she gets from performing a marriage ceremony and knowing she is instrumental in the "happily ever after" which is about to begin.
Alize is currently studying Interior Design and has a wonderful aesthetic which helps with the beauty of my elopements and microweddings!
For those couples looking to add-on a mini reception with champagne and cake cutting, it will likely be Alize who delivers the decor and assembles your vignette behind the scenes, creating the perfect ensemble for your photos!
Don't worry about titles: Reverend, Minister, Pastor, Celebrant, Officiant.
Our own beliefs are immaterial during the ceremony design process and our purpose is to elevate tradition around the needs and tastes of contemporary couples,
regardless of the institution you're marrying in.
Whether you're secular, religious, interfaith, or a multicultural couple wishing to express yourself in a manner that is outrageously YOU, we'd be honored to assist!
It is all peachy keen, so long as your love is radiant.
