Some Frequently Asked Questions:

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT OUR OFFICIANT?
  Of course! 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 CAN WE HAVE THE CEREMONY?
 

We have a few preferred spots out and about on the Vegas Strip. Really it could be just about anywhere outside but we've selected these few because they're beautiful to shoot, easy to get to and relatively private (aka, low traffic, no one should bother us). 

Our favorites spots would be the 'Arc de Triomphe' at the Paris, the gazebo at Caesars, the archways at the Venetian & the murals of downtown Vegas. If you have something else in mind, just let us know your thoughts. 

Many couples also choose a totally private ceremony in their hotel room or on their balcony.

Any ceremony option will follow with your selections of Vegas Strip photo shoot.


WHAT IF WE ARE TWO DIFFERENT FAITHS?
  No problem! We're happy to customize your ceremony as you need.
