Here is just a little about us. Socal Vows officially began in 2009 as a team of officiants. As local pastors we were frequently asked to help officiant wedding ceremonies. We brought a very unique style to wedding officiating as a whole. All of us tend to have a more casual and relaxed vibe when it came to weddings, but because this is a wedding and one of the most important days of your lives together it needed to have a balance between casual and fun yet intimate and sincere.
Couples loved this approach and as you can see by the hundreds of 5-Star Reviews we have received. We created two different officiant packages; the Standard Wedding Package that is for wedding ceremonies that have 10 or more people or have multiple vendors. Our Intimate Ceremony is for couples that want to elope with less than 10 people, and they are only looking for the officiant. Both of these packages worked great for a Renewal of Vows as well.
We learned that after doing many elopements that couples really needed two things in a wedding ceremony: the officiant and the photographer. We decided to bring in a photographer that was willing to work by the hour and not a set minimum of hours. We called this our Intimate Ceremony Package and is still one of our most requested services. This team has now grown to include multiple officiants and photographers that specialize in wedding photos, especially when it comes to beach weddings.
As we did these elopements, we started getting the requests for a few chairs and wedding arch to help make the wedding a little more formal. That was when we realized that there was a huge demand for “micro weddings” that really had less than 50 guests and wanted to have a great wedding ceremony at an affordable price. So a couple of years ago we created our Complete Beach ceremony package that will included everything a couple would need for a beach wedding at a great price.
This was more popular than we could ever imagine and is still one of the most popular packages that we have available. Many couples would then ask if we knew of a place where they could have dinner or a small reception afterwards so we developed some great local partnerships with restaurants and local reception venues that would be affordable to our couples to have an amazing beach wedding experience with our Complete Beach Ceremony & Reception package.
