It seems everyone is looking to 2022 with hope and . . . well, a little caution.

If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding or at the beginning stages, this new virus variant may have you feeling twitchy about making final decisions.

As a wedding ceremony officiant I can offer multiple options for performing your ceremony, including:

  • 6-foot distance
  • with or without mask depending on location
  • virtual rehearsal

Check out this great discussion with Tahnie of Ivy Events for more on how to navigate your wedding during a pandemic. We recorded last year and much of it still applies. You’ll also hear some great resources for your ceremony.

And, on an even more hopeful note, I love this numerology view of 2022. A great year to get married!

Did you say, “Yes!”?


Though things are still a little tricky for planning your 2021 wedding, what with uncertainties around vaccinations, variants, etc. you can still have a beautiful wedding celebration.

CONSIDER THESE OPTIONS FOR YOUR CEREMONY

*“Just Us Two”: enjoy an intimate ceremony now, just the two of you, and your big celebration at the end of 2021, or next year.

*Virtual “I Do“: Hold a Virtual Wedding Ceremony!
With the right elements in place, your ceremony can still feel intimate and sacred. And with the virtual option, everyone will be able to attend. Learn more in my guidelines.

*Small & Intimate
If you want your immediate family and besties at hand, a small intimate social-distance ceremony is a great option. And you can still plan for a big bash later.
Be sure your venue has clear protocol and procedures in place. Even better, hire a professional wedding planner to make sure it all runs smoothly. Photo by True Photography. Professional coordination by Holly Kalkin Weddings.

Remember to get your marriage license!

This is the LEAST ROMANTIC but MOST IMPORTANT part of your wedding ceremony!

  • Find your County Clerk where you will marry.
  • Make your appointment!
  • Your marriage license is generally valid for 90 days
  • These days due to Covid protocol, find out if the San Diego Marriage Hut is still in place with social distance to acquire your license.

I tell my clients when they pick up their marriage license, make a day of it! Walk along the San Diego boardwalk, visit the tall ships, or have lunch in the park.
