Congratulations on your decision to be married!
Arizona marriage law requires a judge or clergy person (Arizona Ministers) to perform a ceremony to make the marriage legal. If starting your marriage with the pronouncement of a judge is not part of your dream wedding ceremony, please read on and consider Arizona Ministers.
Some couples might not be particularly ‘religious,’ but would enjoy the celebrating services of a caring, open-minded, and creative wedding minister. Our romantic, unreligious civil wedding ceremonies are among the most appreciated and enjoyed! We are known as prolific writers and dynamic storytellers who love to speak words about love. You’ll never find us judgmental or imposing any beliefs.
Many come to Arizona to have a destination wedding and do not have a trusted clergy connection. Some might be between churches and have not yet met a qualified wedding officiant, minister, judge, wedding pastor or priest to perform the marriage ceremony. If you do not belong to a church or know a friendly minister to perform your wedding ceremony in Arizona, you have come to the right place.
We would love to do our part to help create the perfect wedding ceremony for you! Everyone tells us that we relieved so much of their stress and that our calm demeanor allowed everyone to relax and enjoy their ceremony.
We serve all of Arizona. Our office is in Phoenix, but we travel to officiate weddings in Scottsdale, Mesa, Glendale, Sedona, Tucson, Flagstaff, Tubac, The Grand Canyon and locations all over Arizona. We’ve even married couples on a corner in Winslow, Arizona!
ROMANTIC FAITH-BASED OR CIVIL CEREMONIES
DOCUMENT EXECUTION & HAND DELIVERY
Are you searching for wedding ceremony ideas? You can write your own vows or say special words to each other. Your customized wedding ceremony may include a traditional Unity Candle or Sand Service. You can “tie the knot” with our original Golden Cords Ceremony and we offer the Love Letters & Wine Box Sealing Service.* Or, you can have a completely simple wedding. We’re here to lead, not push you!
In every way we have tried to distinguish our ceremonies from others. Our Arizona wedding ceremonies are very inclusive, so a ceremony blending families means your children can be included at some point. We offer a ceremony in which your parents or all of your married guests can renew their vows. Since we do not read a long script from a binder, we make eye contact and completely engage you, your guests and other ceremony participants. All traditions & customs are cheerfully respected and facilitated from the heart. Plus, when you retain us, you get someone reputable and respected in the world-wide wedding industry.
Erin & Michael wrote, “Phil was fantastic. Our ceremony was absolutely wonderful. We live out of town and had multiple phone and email conversations and then we met him once in person prior to the wedding. Even though we only communicated with him a handful of times, he conducted our ceremony as if he had known us for years. The Gold Cords are a special and unique attribute that we opted for. Also, towards the end of the ceremony Phil walked towards the back of the guests and had us face him (so we were facing all our guests) and from there he announced us as husband and wife…that was also very unique and really special to see everyone for that minute or two. He was very responsive and great to work with. Highly recommend!!”
We have won lots of awards from the wedding industry and recognize their popularity among rising wedding vendors. Looking back at our years of officiating Arizona weddings, the greatest blessings for us are the couples that have stayed in touch and have actually become our friends. They are such an encouragement to our lives and careers! Like us on Facebook and we can stay in touch, too!
“She provided excellent service, it was apparent from our first meeting that she cared about our plans, desires, wants and needs. Very knowledgeable and great ideas and suggestions. An absolute pleasure and happy to spend our day with Gwen. Without her presense our day wouldn’t have been such a success.” Kelsey & Codie
We’re here for you, too. What to do?
Earning people’s trust with genuine gratitude, we have performed more than 11,000 weddings in Arizona. Call right now (480-502-0707) so we can determine our availability for your wedding date, time and location. Our calendar fills quickly, so those who call early usually get us.

You’ll feel the stress melt away as we help you visualize your entire wedding day. If you don’t know where to start, we have experience, many ideas, and can explain everything clearly.
