Where is the Central Coast of California?

The Central Coast is a very special place roughly halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. I live in San Luis Obispo County, home to rolling hills, the beautiful Pacific Ocean, award-winning wines, diverse agriculture, golf courses, and incredible people. Oprah Winfrey once called the City of San Luis Obispo the “Happiest Town in America.”

I officiate weddings in many parts of the Central Coast including: Nipomo, Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, Oceano, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach, Avila Beach, the Edna Valley, San Luis Obispo, Santa Margarita, Atascadero, Templeton, Paso Robles, San Miguel, Cambria, Cayucos and Morro Bay. If your wedding venue does not appear on this list, please contact me!


How Long Do Your Ceremonies Run?

While each ceremony is different, 20 minutes is about the average.


do you perform religious ceremonies?

If you are looking for a faith-based ceremony, I am not your guy. I respect all faiths and therefore don't want to "make a mess" of a religious ceremony.


how will you dress for our ceremony?

Short Answer - however you want me to (within reason!) I typically will wear a black suit, but will gladly trade that for a Hawaiian shirt, linen pants and flip flops if we are headed to the beach.


what do you charge?

I value your time, as well as mine. If we connect and you decide to hire me, I will invest a considerable amount of time preparing, revising and finally sharing your ceremony in front of those who mean the most to you on your wedding day. My rate includes unlimited consultations, revisions, attendance at the wedding rehearsal, and of course I will be present on your wedding day at the time you ask me to be there. The total fee is $700.00, with a 50% deposit due upon executing the contract.
