Wedding Officiant | Ordained Minister

Jocelyn Noel Photography

The wedding ceremony is a moment in time that captures the essence of what a couple vows to carry into a lifetime commitment. It is the heart of one of life’s most sacred experiences. Once crossed, a couple is forever changed. It is an honor for me to not only facilitate this crossing, but to bear witness to life’s greatest blessings: LOVE! 

Love is universal and knows no boundaries. I work closely with each couple to craft ceremonies for spiritual, interfaith/non-denominational, religious, and same-sex marriages. It is during a complimentary consultation where I explain my services and learn more about you as a couple and your vision that I begin the process of creating a ceremony that is completely unique to you as a couple. Additionally, I can recommend vendors as well as super special locations throughout the Lake Tahoe region for your special day! 

Officiating weddings is a natural extension of the space that I have learned and cultivated in over my 10+ years of teaching yoga - both in a public and one-on-one setting. I look forward to creating a meaningful and magical wedding experience with you.

Services

The wedding ceremony is the heart of the wedding day. Through a one-on-one meeting virtually or in person, I craft a custom ceremony that reflects the couple, their love and dreams for the future. There are two options available to help customize the ceremony - whether the wedding is a large affair or an intimate outdoor elopement, the ceremony will certainly be one of a kind and so special.

Testimonials

Meghan was our officiant for our small wedding on 8/28/2020. We found Meghan one month away from our wedding date due to the many plan changes the pandemic threw at us.

 

Right away we knew, Meghan was the perfect fit. Meghan is a gem, she has a vibe, calm, collected, the kind of person you wish you were friends with, hip but doesn't know it! We got in the car after our inital conversation and the first thing we said was, "man, can she officiate the big wedding as well if we have one next year (thanks covid)?!" Shortly after we invited her to officiate our wedding. She sent us a questionnaire that we each answered individually. She used this questionnaire to slip in personal bit into the ceremony script. This was one of the many things Meghan did so well. It was a beautiful touch to hear your partners perspective of love and marriage throughout the ceremony.

 

Through out my search for wedding vendors, I thought I needed the super up beat, crazy outgoing, loud, big personality type vedors but I cannot thank Meghan enough for her calm presence at our wedding. As easy going as we are, the wedding still caused some nerves the day of but having her there, I felt instantly calm. Meghan just felt like family.

 

I hope you get a chance to experience was Meghan has to offer, you will not be disappointed.

 

Also, shout out to Meghan for finding the MOST PERFECT ceremony location. We couldn't have done it without her.

Meghan was referred to us by another local vendor who helped facilitate our initial contact. My husband and I had decided only four weeks prior that we wanted to elope at sunrise above Donner Lake and on a holiday no less. We knew it was a lot to ask and by the time we got in touch with Meghan we were probably only about two weeks out. She offered to meet with us in person, however with Meghan in Truckee, myself in Reno, and my fiancé at the time being in Boise we decided on a video conference. As they say the rest is history. Meghan was wonderful to work with; the process was smooth and seamless. Her ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt and it was as if she had known us so much longer. The entire ceremony was personalized and included so many details about us as a couple. We can’t thank her enough for not only performing an amazing ceremony, but also for being willing to hike up a mountain at 5am on a Holiday!

Meghan was our officiant for our small wedding in Lake Tahoe. We first met in person to see if it was a good fit for us and it went very well. She asked us questions about ourselves and the ceremony and brought up topics that we hadn’t thought of yet so it helped us get more organized for our wedding. She was very flexible with the script and type of ceremony, we even changed our location the day before and it was no issue. The ceremony was perfect and she made everything so easy, I definitely recommend her for any wedding ceremony!
