Marriage & Domestic Partner Ceremonies - San Diego County

Our Minister, ordained by the Universal Life Church enjoys every commitment ceremony he has performed. 

"Never is there so much love in one place as when two people look each other in the eyes and commit to one another forever."

With the date set and the wedding bells ringing in the distance,  The Reverend makes the process a whole lot easier.  Starting with your vows and personal touches, our script takes the stress out by corresponding via phone, email or text which allows you to focus on the many other details and decision that need to be made.

Whether it is a beach ceremony or backyard gathering, Reverend Dan fills the room with love and joy as he recites your commitment to you and your partner just as you have dictated.
