About Us

Meet From the Heart Ceremonies Wedding Officiant Dianne Patterson. I'm passionate about weddings, and I accept only one to two weddings a month so I have plenty of time to focus on writing and editing a highly personalized ceremony for those couples who want it. For couples with an elopment or small marriage ceremony in mind, I'd enjoy being part of your special day with those services beginning at just $225.

During the pandemic, many couples have made different (and difficult) choices than what they originally envisioned for their wedding day. Let's work together in this emerging new norm to make your ceremony as meaningful and memorable as possible!

Why From the Heart Ceremonies?
With extensive writing and public speaking experience, I craft and present ceremonies for memorable and stress-free experiences. Religious or non-religious, simple or intricate, I work with each couple to design the service that will bring them joy on their big day. I enjoy helping couples from all communities feel the beauty and serenity they deserve during their marriage ceremony.

Here's what one couple wrote about the first draft of their ceremony: "We LOVE what you have written, the ceremony sounds SO beautiful and we can't wait to hear it in person. Thanks so much for putting so much time in!"

Services Offered
I offer some prewritten ceremony sections to choose from, as well as original writing for complete ceremony customization. With enthusiasm and patience, I will help you through the entire process. My officiant services are avaibable for civil union, non religious, single religion, interfaith, vow renewal and rehearsal ceremonies.

  • Dianne has been amazing from start to finish... and she's not even done helping us yet! My (now) husband and I had to reschedule our big wedding due to COVID-19 but we still wanted to get legally married on the original day. Dianne (who created a personalized ceremony just for us) shortened our ceremony and was willing to marry us on both days! She is extremely easy to work with, listened to our input and created a wonderful and touching ceremony tailored to us. I can't wait to do it again in November in front of all of our guests. I highly recommend Dianne and I have already recommended her to close friends.
