What is a Wedding Chaplain?
Chaplains (Clergy or Laity) have the ability to support individuals in time of need without personal judgment or religious agenda. This allows Chaplains to serve couples of all faiths, beliefs and even non-beliefs in planning a wedding ceremony that reflects their passions and personalities!
In addition to our ceremony always being fun, lighthearted and romantic; our styles and personalities allow for us to always respect our couple’s beliefs with a foundation that reflects who they are! Whether their ceremony is Civil, Spiritual & Traditional or Christian; we can help.
Our goal is to exceed your expectations in a Wedding Officiant…
As Wedding Chaplains, Christopher Tuttle and Mary Cyr-Tuttle are able to serve couples; whatever their faith, beliefs and even non-beliefs. They also offer San Diego Elopement services in addition to larger gatherings.

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!
Christopher and Mary, Wedding Chaplains 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 personal judgment.
What is their 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.”
