Find Out More About Us

WHAT MAKES YOU STAND OUT?

We genuinely love adding to the beauty of people's wedding day.

 

Couples choose us because we set the tone of their special day through stories which are jam-packed with life, emotion and creativity. We can perform traditional unions or create a tailor-made ceremony reflecting the essence of your relationship and personalities. We aim to set the tone for the day through real and honest connections communicated creatively. Most importantly of all though, we are always up for an adventure and know that when we take risks we get rewarded.

 

Oh, and it also helps that Jonny was born and raised in England and has a much sought after accent!!

WHERE DO WE START?

It is incredibly important you make the choice of hiring an officiant that will champion a ceremony fully reflecting your wishes and desires. Our advice is to create a shortlist and speak to each officiant in order to get a feel for who they are and if they are a good match for you.​

  • Go to the Contact page and fill out the information form, or email us directly at info@weddingsbyparker.org.

  • Once we receive your information, we will check to see if the date is available, and promptly get in touch with you.

  • Providing your date is available, we will set up a free consultation to meet and discuss your upcoming wedding.

  • Once we've met, and decide we are a fit, a $100 deposit is required to secure your date.

  • Once the deposit is paid, we'll begin planning your ceremony together!

HOW MUCH IS THE SERVICE?

Our wedding packages start at $495 (includes deposit). Our essential package is already a step above and includes everything that will make your day truly unforgettable: regular phone meetings prior to the wedding, a short, simple and well crafted ceremony, unlimited revisions, and hosting the ceremony on your big day.

The premium package provides a longer and more crafted ceremony unique to the couple. The cost of this package is $595 (includes deposit). Couples choose this package to design a more personal ceremony based on responses to our relationship questionnaire. The result is a distinct story-based ceremony that evokes celebration from start to finish.

Our most popular package provides a more detailed crafted ceremony and adds a personal meeting. The cost of this package is $695 (includes deposit). Couples choose this package to meet with us in-person so that we can connect at a deeper level and craft a truly unique ceremony jam-packed with life, emotion and creativity. This is a special arrangement that allows us to serve our couples more completely and saves them time not having to complete questionnaires and paperwork.

*For weddings and meetings outside of Orange County, the cost will be slightly more to cover travel time and expenses (travel fee flexible based on distance).

DO YOU COME TO THE REHEARSAL?

Wedding officiants do not typically attend the rehearsal. Wedding Planners and Venue Coordinators are sufficient to help you through the rehearsal of the ceremony. You will already have an outline from us by this time. If you want Jonny or Kim to be at your rehearsal, please book the deluxe package.

ARE YOU A LICENSED AND REGISTERED OFFICIANT?

Yes.

I (Jonny) have a BSc in Management Science from the Manchester University in England and began my career as a Risk Management Consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers. I loved the company and the work - especially the constant interaction with people, but I had a vision for a different life and career. Five years after graduating I returned to college to get a teaching credential and then emigrated to the USA to earn my MA at Talbot School of Theology. Upon completion I began my new career as a bivocational pastor, teaching at a public school and leading a local church in Tustin, CA. I am a licensed pastor in the state of California, and the lead teacher at The Crowded House.
