What services do you provide, what is your specialty?
Amazing weddings and Ceremonies is a team of wedding officiants put together by ourselves, Rev. Samuel Lopez, and Rev. Jessica Buchanan. We hire, train, and even ordain, all our officiants with great care. We have officiants and ministers from a variety paths including Christian, Secular, Shamanic, Pagan, Indian, and more. We offer Bilingual services, and a wide array of unique additions, and unity ceremonies.
Our priority is your special day. We want your ceremony to be a memorable, and profound, reflection of your relationship. Our diverse team of ministers are well prepared to ensure that your day is amazing, hence our name. We don’t take that title lightly. We strive to be the very best. We consider it an honor to create the container in which your intent to be joined in marriage is put out into the universe. We treat every wedding, even secular ones, with sanctity and care.
Who are your clients?
Everyone! Whatever your needs, we have someone who can make your dream wedding ceremony a reality. We do not discriminate in any way shape or form. If you want to get married, we want to be part of your celebration. In fact, our entire business is built on a model of diversity.
When and Why did you start your business?
After a year of working together regularly, officiating a wide variety of weddings, we decided to combine our businesses to see if we could bring a whole new level of service to the wedding officiant market. In 2016 we created an LLC, hired a team, secured some venues, and have been enjoying brisk business ever since!
What or Who inspires you?
We are inspired by a wide variety of people, but particularly those on the frontlines of honoring diversity, and acceptance.
Do you have any advice for newly engaged couples?
Choose your officiant with care. Although the officiant is often the least expensive vendor for your wedding, I would venture to say we are the most important. The ceremony sets the tone for not only the wedding, but the marriage. Our officiants are aware of the enormity of this responsibility, and never take it lightly.
We would love to be the ones to officiate your ceremony, however if you have hired someone else, and feel they would benefit from the knowledge we offer, send them our way. We offer training, and ordination for a low price to anyone interested in officiating weddings, either professionally, or just for family and friends.
What is one of your guilty pleasures?
For Jess, crafting. For Sam, Pie. For both of us, Books.
What is one thing newly engaged couples should know about your service?
We can take the stress out of the ceremony aspect of your wedding. We are well versed in everything from the procession, to the recession, and all that falls between.
What is your favorite part about a wedding?
We are blessed with every wedding to see the magic created by love, to witness the joining as you look into each other’s eyes, and make your vows. The energy in that moment is always palpable, just this wave of grateful love. It is beautiful.
