Step 1: Contact the HeartLight minister of your choice and discuss your wedding ceremony and fees.
HeartLight Wedding officiants are happy to meet with you prior to your wedding and assist you in creating your ceremony. We want the words you speak to one another, on your wedding day, to express your love, commitment and the dreams you have for your life together. We enjoy meeting every couple in person and getting to know them before the wedding. However, we perform many destination weddings and meetings in person are not always possible. We are available for meetings by Skype and conference phone calls with the brides and grooms who are planning their weddings from a distance.
Getting to know couples and the individual love stories they share with us is a big part of why we enjoy being wedding celebrants. We are available for all ceremonies from a small elopement to a grand formal event.
When you reserve your wedding date, via deposit, you will receive a selection of beautiful Heart Light wedding ceremonies and a selection of wedding poems and readings. Our ceremonies include spiritual, interfaith, non-denominational, traditional, romantic, secular, theme weddings, alternative, hand-fasting and LGBT.
You may choose to use one of our Heartlight ceremonies as is, or you may use the ceremonies as templates to create your unique ceremony. Couples are not limited to Heartlight ceremonies but may use any ceremony they choose from any source. Your officiant is available to assist you and answer any questions as you go through the process of creating your wedding ceremony.
