"When I was asked to officiate my brother's wedding, I knew exactly who I wanted to ask for help as I prepared for my first wedding - Heather. She walked me through every step of what it means to be an officiant - from when to start meeting with the couple to what to do on the day of the event. She gave me questions to ask that I would never have thought to ask. And she showed me how to make the event unique to the couple. She even gave me a template questionnaire that really helped guide the whole experience. I am so very grateful for Heather’s coaching and support! I would highly recommend Heather! "


You’ve been asked to officiate at a wedding! CONGRATULATIONS! 

You feel so honored that they asked YOU of all people. 

You say, “Yes!” Then you ask, “What would you like in your wedding ceremony?”

And they say, “We don’t know. We’ve never done this before.”

But neither have you! So you freeze a little bit inside. 

You google, “How to officiate a wedding” and a million and one basic scripts pop up. But nothing shows you HOW to officiate.

You really start sweating when you picture standing in front of ALL THOSE PEOPLE. All those people LOOKING AT YOU. 

And the couple’s faces - your loved ones looking at you with all the hope that you can do this, that you can make their WEDDING DAY special…and not choke.

I know exactly how you feel! I remember feeling so honored by the request but then…feeling cornered too.

All I wanted to do was connect my Bride-friend to a great officiant who I knew and respected. But by the time I finished telling her about Jim and how he used to co-officiate the most amazing ceremonies with his beautiful wife who’d passed the year before, she asked me, “Would you co-officiate with him?” 

“Me?” I said, beyond perplexed. “Yes,” she said expectantly, “You’re clearly passionate about this!”

Fortunately, I HAD HELP. Jim walked me through step by step from the script creation to the Rehearsal, from the Day-of care of the couple to the Ceremony itself, all the way to the signing of the Marriage License.

That was 14 years ago and saying "Yes" to my friend was one of the best decisions of my life. 

Now it would be my honor to help get you to the altar feeling confident.

"This role was brand new to me and I wanted to do it justice so I reached out to Heather for coaching!  And boy am I glad I did.  She told me everything I needed to know to make their wedding day exquisite, special, personalized and memorable for all.  She gave me the perfect questions to ask to ensure they had the ceremony of their dreams.  She informed me of common pitfalls in preparing a wedding ceremony and shared many of her own lessons learned over her many years and hundreds of weddings officiated.  Needless to say, I went from having zero idea what I was doing to creating and leading a ceremony that reaped extraordinary feedback from even the least expected attendees and utmost gratitude from the newlyweds!  Any time I learn of someone officiating for the first time, I give them Heather's contact info and urge them to reach out to her.  Her insights, experience and coaching never fail to be a gift! THANK YOU, Heather! "

Afraid of public speaking?

Don't worry, officiating a wedding is a very different experience! 

Let me set the record straight:

Intimate Setting: You'll be speaking to a "crowd" of two: the couple you already know and deeply care about. It's all about creating a meaningful connection with them, making them feel truly heard, seen, and celebrated on their special day.

A Different Role: Your goal is not to entertain an audience, but to facilitate a heartfelt ceremony for the couple. You hold the key to creating a deeply personal and memorable experience for the ones who matter most.

The Best View: Imagine having the best seat in the house, facing the couple with all of their loved ones watching. As the officiant, you'll have the privilege of standing alongside the couple, guiding them through this momentous occasion while having their full support and trust.

With my guidance and supportive training, you'll conquer any speaking fears and confidently shine in the spotlight. Embrace the unique opportunity to connect with the couple on a profound level, creating an unforgettable ceremony that will touch their hearts and make their day truly magical.

When my friend, Emily, asked me if I knew any good officiants in my area, it never occurred to me I would end up standing at her altar. But she heard a passion in my voice that I didn’t even know was there, and thus began my journey. I stood side-by-side with a dear friend who had created and officiated countless ceremonies over the preceding decades.

It was one of the most beautiful moments of my life up to that point - standing with the best view in the house of my gorgeous friend as she married her love. And I felt confident because Jim was leading the way. I just had to follow.

We had such a great time that Jim asked if he could put my name on as his co-officiant at a few area venues. I was honored and said, “Yes!” But three weeks later he would pass very suddenly. “That’s that,” I thought.

But at his memorial in one of those venues, the coordinator approached me asking if I was still going to officiate. I said, “I’m not official!”. Katya looked me straight in the eye and said, “Well, get official! You’re the only one who knows how he officiated such special ceremonies.” 

And she was right! What Jim did was pure magic! And I was the only person besides his late wife that he had ever co-officiated with. 

Despite my full-time job working for the county, I could not shake Katya’s command. Before I knew it (only two weeks later!) I was standing at a table with a banner and business cards. With that I’d dived into the deep end and have spent the last decade and a half swimming my way into the best career I could have dreamed of.

In those years since, I became an expert in the art of ceremony design with a specialized focus on weddings. I’ve been a certified Marriage Celebrant since 2010. 

I’m wildly passionate about helping each couple tell their unique love story through their ceremony, representing their beliefs and what marriage means to them, and creating unique elements that both they and their loved ones really enjoy.

I feel privileged to have officiated for nearly 200 couples. Standing at the altar is such an honor, but it’s also the best view in the house, because you get to be up close and personal with the couple, while also seeing all of their loved one’s faces filled with joy and expectation for this couple’s marriage. 

Naturally, I’d love to marry every couple! The joyful feedback from guests and couples always includes that they didn’t realize weddings could be so special and meaningful. But the inspiration for creating this online training didn’t come from the countless happy couples I’ve married. Rather it came from other vendors and their horror stories that started coming up as more and more people asked loved ones and friends to be their officiants.

“Heather, I wish you could teach people how to do what you do - especially all these inexperienced officiants!”

Some couples ask a loved one to officiate in order to save money, others because they have someone they truly wish to stand at their altar and share the moment with them. But - either way - the Officiant is a vendor role just like the DJ or Florist. And they have professional responsibilities that rookies just don’t know about. So without proper support, most ceremonies end up being a toast with vows and rings rather than a ceremony where something has changed for the couple (mentally and emotionally) from beginning to end.
