On New Years Eve 2014, we were invited to appear on “San Diego Living“, a local San Diego television program that shares news, weather and many topics for the community. They asked how how important and special it was us to win the BBB “Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics” and allowed us to share information about Vows From The Heart Wedding ceremony information, Elope to San Diego and Military Mondays! Thank you Heather for the hospitality and for your excitement about what we do!

Understanding the Ceremony AND the Reception
Outside the walls of a church, a couple’s wedding day seems to be just one BIG event. It’s Not! The Ceremony and the Reception need to be looked upon as two entirely different and separate elements of your big day. You need someone that understands the ceremony, all the elements and someone that can handle all the “Oops” and “Uh-Oh’s” that can… and will happen on your big day! Their goal is to make the ceremony a direct reflection of the two of you, who you really are. Not what you think has to happen but, what you want to happen. They are proud to perform an upbeat yet personal ceremony that segues right into the excitement and fun of your reception!
Reverend Christopher and Chaplain Mary want to exceed your expectations of a Wedding Officiant.
They are 100% devoted to their craft and their couples in search for a non-denominational wedding Chaplain to preside over their wedding ceremony outside the walls of the Church with professionalism and most importantly, without judgment.
What is Rev. Christopher’s and Chaplain Mary’s style? In recent reviews the most common words used by Brides and Grooms to describe them are: Fun, Personal, Fun, Warm, Fun, Professional, Fun, Romantic, do you notice a theme here. Simply visit the “Reviews” page and read for yourself, direct from the Brides and Grooms themselves.
“I firmly believe that one Wedding Officiant can’t be the end all – be all to everyone and those that say they are, well, are not being truthful with themselves” said Rev.Christopher in a recent interview. “Each Officiant has a style and personality that needs to match the couple. For example, I’m not the Sister Mary moonshine, creative writing course graduate type. You know.. “and the clouds parted and the angels flung their arrows into the souls of our couple…” Not to say I can’t present that in a reading during the ceremony if my couples wish, but that’s so not my style and I don’t mind telling my couples right from the start. I think how I’ve won the hearts of my couples is; by not presenting MY ceremony, but by presenting the ceremony THEY help to create. How? By using my ceremony handbook which they receive at our interview. They help select all the elements of their ceremony : readings, prayers, blessings, poems, vows, ring promises and acts of celebration. It’s done in such a way that is easy, couples become very proactive in the creation of their ceremony thus, becoming a true reflection of the two of them and their love and the style the ceremony is presented to everyone.”
