Officiant services include planning your ceremony, officiating your wedding (including arrival 30 minutes prior, or as pre-arranged), and assistance with filing of your marriage license.
I will reach out via phone or email to gather some basic information prior to sending some wording samples and information about my service fee. I recommend arranging an in-person or virtual meeting, so that we can chat in more detail and I can learn more about your personalities and preferences. However, if there is limited time or you are looking for a simpler ceremony or planning experience, I am flexible and will work to adapt to your needs.
Once you’ve decided that I’m the officiant for you, a deposit and a signed copy of my service agreement is requested to hold the date. The deposit can be paid by cash or check (made payable to Lauren Maseda). Please contact me for other payment options, such as Zelle or Venmo.
For larger events, on the day of the wedding I look to communicate with other vendors present at your venue (i.e., sound, photographers, DJs) to ensure the ceremony runs smoothly.
I handle the process of getting the paperwork signed and delivered to the Registrar. Regularly, I communicate with Clerks and Registrars around the State to make sure that your marriage license is properly received.
