About Us

Meet From the Heart Ceremonies Wedding Officiant Dianne Patterson. I'm passionate about weddings, and I accept only one-two weddings a month so I have plenty of time to write and edit a highly personalized ceremony for each couple. 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. And, by committing to a limited number of ceremonies each year, I have the capacity and focus each couple deserves as I prepare for their wedding.

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!"

Ask me about special pricing for elopements and small ceremonies.

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.

  • We talked with a couple officiants before finding Dianne and we knew we had found a match as soon as we started talking ! She allows you to completely customize the ceremony (prayer , no prayer , readings , rituals etc). She also sends you several drafts which you are able to edit or add suggestions on. She is so kind and easy to work and talk with ! The ceremony Dianne wrote for us was so beautiful and personable! She sent each of us a questionnaire and she even reached out to several close friends and family members to really get a sense of who we are ! We received so many compliments from guests , some said it was the best ceremony they have been to , others said they thought she was a close family friend of ours ! We truly appreciated all of the time she put in to make our ceremony so memorable and special!
