For couples who have been longing to make their wedding into a magical affair to be celebrated with their friends and family, our DC Marriage Officiant service is the way to go. While DC Elopements provides marriage license services, license signings, and small elopement ceremonies, our full-scale wedding ceremonies are handled through our sister company, DC Officiants / Ceremony Officiants.
Having been performing marriages in the DC area for more than a decade, we have built many fabulous relationships with local vendors who can work together to make your dream wedding into a reality. From planners to DJs, we are happy to offer recommendations to help you plan your dream wedding. Because we work with some of the area’s best wedding planners, even if you don’t have the standard ‘year in advance’ before your upcoming wedding date they can still help you host an incredible event planned in a shorter time frame. If you are interested in locating local vendors to help with your planning process and event details, please see our Recommended Professionals page.
Because our officiants are non-denominational ministers, we are able to serve all faiths and traditions easily. There is a lot to consider when designing the perfect ceremony for each individual couple. We work with you directly, either via Skype, Facetime, phone, or an in-person meeting to plan the details of your custom ceremony.
During our planning meeting, we discuss how your choice of venue, guests, religion, beliefs, traditions, your likes and dislikes, and your unique relationship all play a role in the creation of your distinctive ceremony. We can provide you with as little or as much guidance as you want when it comes to writing your own vows or choosing the perfect ceremonial add-ons (candle-lighting, sand ceremony, tree planting, readings, etc.). Following our meeting we will create a custom draft of your ceremony which we email to you for you to review and edit as you wish. This way, you know exactly what is going to be said at your ceremony without having to worry about a dreaded ‘soap-box’ moment from your officiant. You will know in advance that your ceremony is going to be an accurate reflection of your love and your choices as a couple.
Our prices for full-scale wedding ceremonies begin at $600 for the Washington, D.C. area.
