Your Wedding Day is one of the most important and meaningful events you will experience in your life, and choosing an experienced, friendly, and professional person to minister as your Wedding Officiant will make your big day a great experience. I take the time to meet with you, hear your story, help you plan out your ceremony with all the details "you" want included in it. And then I craft a personalized wedding ceremony you the couple, your family, and friends will remember and cherish for years to come.
I work closely with couples who choose to work with me and accommodate your every need so that your wedding ceremony is the very best it could possibly be. I am privileged to officiate wedding ceremonies for a variety of couples like you throughout Orange and LA County, including couples who specifically travel to Orange County California for their wedding day. I am a Credentialed, Ordained Minister that serves as a Pastor at a local church that welcomes and affirms "all people" no matter who they are, or where they are from. Jesus didn't discriminate against anyone, and neither do I. In general, I will customize a few different types of Ceremonies, "non-denominational" ceremonies, short and sweet ceremonies sprinkled with mentions of God, non-religious ceremonies with no mentions of God, ceremonies that are simple and civil, and ceremonies for LGBTQ+ people. Like I said... I don't discriminate.
Basically, what you can expect from me as your Wedding Officiant is that I will plan and customize a meaningful ceremony for you several months in advance, or I can perform a quick legal ceremony within a couple months, the same month, or week. The amount of time we have together to prepare your ideal ceremony will make a difference. So I generally counsel couples to secure their Wedding Officiant as soon as possible, because without an Ordained Wedding Officiant, you have no legal Wedding Ceremony. No matter how much time you have before your special day, I do all I can to be there for you to compose your ceremony in a way that communicates your love, your relationship, and what you carry in your heart that has brought you both together as a couple.
After our initial consult (60-90 minutes or more if needed), I will build your ceremony into the experience you envision. Whether you want a simple 10-15 minute ceremony with hints of your preferred sense of spirituality, or a ceremony without any religious overtones, I will fashion your ceremony into what you want it to be. Why? Because your wedding is an incredibly special event! And whether it is your first and only wedding ceremony, or a do-over, I am here to meet your need as a professional, caring, friendly, and experienced Ordained Minister and Wedding Officiant.
If you'd like to include within your Wedding Ceremony, a symbolic Sand Ceremony, a Unity Candle Ceremony, a Rose Ceremony presentation to honor your mother's, father's, or grandparents, the Lasso Ritual, or even a symbolic Tying of the Infinity Knot, I've got you covered. I perform Wedding Ceremonies for many wedding party sizes, and levels of formality. I'll perform your backyard or beach wedding, or a wedding ceremony with a large guest list at a formal venue, Hotel, or Golf Course.
I provide top notch professional service no matter what size wedding you are planning.
Read the reviews my couples have posted on GigMasters, check out the photos of some of the couples I have worked with, along with the short videos posted and you'll get good idea if I am a good fit for you. I have been personally ministering and serving people since 2002 and I absolutely LOVE what I do!
Let me help you create a Ceremony that you will look back on and experience that wonderful moment when you both said, "I Do" all over again.
Always hoping for the very best for you,
Rev. Deborah Windham
