Make It Official - Santa Clarita wedding officiant

Make It Official

In business since 2009

My name is Suzane Shelden, I am a non-denominational, 5 Star Rated, Award Winning Wedding Officiant, Ceremony and Rehearsal Coordinator, as well as a Notary Public. I'm located in Santa Clarita, CA and service the Los Angeles and Ventura Countys. I have been blessed to help create and perform wedding ceremonies since 2009. As your Wedding Officiant, I will create a wedding ceremony that tells YOUR story, one that reflects the essence of your relationship. It is important to me that your ceremony is exactly how you want it to be, after all it is your day. I have discovered that there is a huge need for an experienced, caring Wedding Officiant who can create and perform a wedding ceremony with warmth, professionalism and love. I have been told that this is “MY CALLING” and I take a lot of pride in creating your perfect ceremony and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Let me take away all the stress involved in creating your ceremony. You should enjoy your day! If you are planning a large wedding, or a private intimate ceremony in a backyard, or wanting to elope, it’s your wedding day and it should be personal, beautiful and memorable. Whether you know exactly what you want, or you don’t even know where to begin. I will customize and personalize your ceremony to make it exactly, wonderfully yours. As your Wedding Officiant, whether we are celebrating your marriage, or vow renewal, I hope you'll give me the opportunity to create with you a ceremony that will reflect your love, beliefs, personalities and unique traditions. Your ceremony not only reflects the love in your lives, but also demonstrates the meaning and power of you love.
