Connie Jones-Steward, MA, RH - Los Angeles Wedding Officiant & Ceremonialist
Weddings For Your Lovestyle
Your first question might be " What is a ceremonialist?" A ceremonialist is one who is trained to create and officiate at meaningful  life-cycle ceremonies. Ceremonialists are also known as officiants, celebrants, and ministers. I am also an anthropologist which means that I have both spiritual and academic insight, along with practical experience, into the history and creation of ceremony and the importance that many people place on its role when celebrating the milestones of their lives.
I am fully vested in providing you with caring service and an attentive ear. Beginning with our initial contact I pay attention to what you want and don't want in your ceremony and will work to co-create that ceremony with you.
When I arrive at our first meeting I will bring sample ceremonies and photos from past weddings so you can get a sense of my style. During the weeks and months leading up to your wedding, I am but a phone call, text message or email away if you want to bounce an idea off me or make changes. I also use this time to coordinate with your wedding planner and other professionals so that we can work together to ensure that your wedding goes smoothly. Finally on the day of your wedding I arrive 45 minutes - 1 hour early to review the license and work out any details and then, rather than rushing off to my next appointment, I allow ample time after your wedding for signing the license and other post-ceremony details. If you have any wedding related problems or questions after the big day I am at your service.  In short, I'm there for you from beginning to end.
