What's your dream? Let's make it happen!
Hi, I'm Paul. Thank you for visiting.
My passion is your beautiful ceremony in the gorgeous location you want.
Weddings In The Wild was created to provide the service of a professional go-anywhere wedding officiant, helping couples feel more comfortable in a gorgeous setting for their wedding. I use my gift of creating ceremonies and facilitating experiences that capture the intent and emotion of the couple and the moment. With thoughtful writing and a heartfelt and joyful performance of your ceremony on your wedding day.
The inspiration for Weddings In The Wild was born when a former student asked me to "marry them". The wedding photographer, also a former student of mine, told me that what I did was a really unique, meaningful and beautiful ceremony. That no one in our area was doing anything like it. Connecting the couple with the beauty, majesty and power of nature, creation and the universe. That was in 2015. After a few weddings, brides told me that they really appreciated all of the help with the planning of their trip. This feedback led to creation of the concierge service as an option for couples who want help planning.
I believe in love. I'm partial to nature and wilderness because it's so alive and inspiring with its beauty and majesty. I love to help people create the experience of their vision.
Savor the beauty of the moment and enjoy the day. It's a celebration of your love. Even if you've spent 20+ years together, you'll feel the shift on the day and in the moment. I would be honored to help make it memorable and joyful for the two of you.
Thank you for considering my services. Please let me know your questions.
It would truly be an honor and privilege to officiate your wedding.
peace and love,
Your ceremony and celebration are shaped by your needs and wishes. I work to build a personal relationship with each couple. Then share my gift of using words to connect you with the power of the nature that surrounds. A joyful and beautiful performance for your wedding day.
