To provide a beautiful ceremony framework...
...get to know the couple and what is important to each other....
...reflect your beliefs, values and heritage...
...conduct a thorough, organized, entertaining rehearsal...
... your joyful celebration is my passion.
You have found the love of your life.
Now you are planning the ceremony that honors the lifelong commitment you will make. On your special day, you want a knowledgeable, experienced and caring officiant who will guide you through the ceremony and help you share this most intimate event with your friends and loved ones.
From the selection of readings to the preparation of vows,
creating your wedding ceremony should be a joyous and
creative undertaking for both of you.
It has been my great blessing to have celebrated many weddings and guided many couples through this process. I would love to walk with you on this journey, and officiate your wedding.
- Rev. Jesús Rivera
Each couple is unique, and I love helping to create and officiate customized ceremonies that truly reflect the individuals. I will help you plan and celebrate this most intimate and momentous event.
A former Roman Catholic priest, I am one of the few bilingual officiants in the area. I have had the pleasure of marrying a diverse array of couples throughout Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington D.C., and hope to continue doing so for many years to come.
Ceremony Within a Ceremony
The exchange of vows and rings is the essential focus of most wedding ceremonies. Many couples choose to symbolize their joining together by including other beautiful rituals.
