The Santa Ynez Valley is a gorgeous setting for your Wedding, and as a Santa Ynez Valley local I am happy to provide my insight for your wedding. Below is information on Venues, Lodging, Photographers and Rentals in the Santa Ynez Valley.  I Officiate Weddings in the Santa Ynez Valley, throughout Santa Barbara County, Surrounding Counties and Requested Destination Locations.

In my training with the County Clerk Recorder Specialist, Miriam Leon, I am authorized to work with a Notary to receive a Marriage License for Day of Ceremony and am also authorized to Officiate Confidential Ceremonies-I honor every couple’s privacy and provide complete confidentiality.

The couples I have married thank me for my care with their vows, my personal consideration for their ceremony planning and giving them a Personalized Heirloom Vow Booklet. Please contact me at one of the following to discuss your Wedding Ceremony:
