what we do

We offer four basic services:

We no longer provide confidential marriage licensing, but you can easily obtain your marriage license from any L.A. Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk's office or privately via our authorized notary partner.

"Safer Elopement" Officiation

For those who want to avoid COVID risk or who just need extra privacy, we offer outdoor, distanced elopement officiation for weddings taking place anywhere in California. Ceremony locations outside the W.L.A. area may incur travel fees.


If you have your marriage license already and just need an officiant signature to make it official, we offer quick and easy drop-in "Sign-And-Go" solemnizations.

One-Time and Pro Officiant Coaching

Are you having a friend or family member officiate your wedding ceremony, or are you looking to jump-start an officiant career? Check out our customized officiant coaching for help with ceremony writing, public speaking skills, dealing with stage fright, wedding rehearsals, client and vendor relations, marketing, and wedding etiquette. All your questions will be listened to and answered, and you'll get expert info and insider tips (and maybe have some fun, too).

Elizabeth Oakes is a Gottman Institute certified marriage coach and provides consultations and coaching for couples who wish to deepen their understanding and relationship skills based on Gottman's "Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work" program.
