As professional wedding officiants, we specialize in civil, atheist, secular humanist, and LGBT weddings, ceremonies, and elopements. The ceremonies you’ll find here are couple-focused, completely customizable and totally free of religious references.
Whether you want to put your ceremony together yourself or have us help you each step of the way, you’ll find a plethora of material here to get started. In the side menu on this site, read all the sample ceremonies, readings and optional elements to consider. When you find a reading, vows or poem that speaks to you and your individual relationship, and you get that “Yes!” feeling you’ll know you’re on the right track. Help us get to know you by answering the “Telling Your Story” questions.
Contact us to check availability or ask questions! Be sure to specify your ceremony date, time and location. (Contact form and email are ideal to inquire for availability.) We’re always happy to arrange meetings in person when possible.
NEWS, April 2016: “I am proud to announce an exciting change here at A Simple Ceremony. I started this business officiating weddings in 2009 as one person helping couples experience a meaningful and personal nonreligious wedding ceremony. Seven wonderful years later, an increasing demand has prompted me to recruit others! Now, in 2016 I’ve started a system of referring couples to other experienced officiants that I have hand-picked, whose ethical and professional standards align with my own. When I am personally unavailable for a wedding date, I am confident that now I can still help couples by offering a great referral to one of my team within this network of like-minded individuals.”
