|CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT OUR OFFICIANT?|

Reverend Judy Irving is an ordained non-denominational Las Vegas minister licensed to perform wedding ceremonies, renewal ceremonies, commitment ceremonies, same-sex, gay and LGBT ceremonies. She was ordained in 1997 and brings with her 18 years of experience as well as a sense of dignity, compassion, love and grace to every ceremony.|
|HOW FAR AHEAD DO WE NEED TO BOOK?|
|We suggest four to six months in order to get the time and date you want.|
|CAN WE WRITE OUR OWN VOWS?|
|Certainly! This is a lovely addition to any ceremony! Just let the officiant know you want to do so and we’ll will give you the opportunity at the appropriate time during the ceremony.|
|WHAT IF IT’S JUST THE TWO OF US AND WE DON’T HAVE A WITNESS?|
|The photographer will be happy to act as a witness!|
|WHERE DO THE RITUALS USUALLY GO?|
|Traditionally, the rose ceremony comes at the beginning after the welcome, or at the end after the pronouncement.
