Harper Parker PhotographyAs a professional officiant and Life-Cycle Celebrant, a couple years ago I started getting asked by wedding planners, venues and other day-of wedding vendors if I could create a coaching/ghost-writing package to help all of their brides and grooms who had asked a friend to officiate their wedding ceremony (or their Destination Wedding). Turns out, creating a thoughtful, emotionally moving and legally recognized ceremony is harder to do than most people think.

Honestly when I was first asked to do this, my answer was, "No, I just don't have time" to coach all these individual clients and their friend/uncle/grandma--it would be easier to just do it myself but I already had a full calendar.

But, the requests from my industry peers didn't die down, so I got to work figuring out how best to provide this service and make it as generous, inclusive and high-quality as I could. I'm really proud to share the result with this first-of-its-kind online Wedding Ceremony Master Class for Friend Officiants.
