Officiant in San Francisco, CA,

About Us

Hi, my name is Lauren and I officiate weddings for sentimental, spontaneous couples who are excited to explore their love! I’m also reinventing the concept of “Wedding Officiant.” After attending many traditional wedding ceremonies, I began to notice that couples were missing a huge emotional opportunity to create a meaningful, engaging wedding ceremony that truly celebrated the essence of who they are. You see, I believe that getting married isn’t just about going through the motions; it’s an incredibly rich and dynamic emotional experience that has the power to bring people closer together. And because I couldn’t find anyone else doing just that, I decided to become the Wedding Officiant who would fill that gap!

Here’s a little more about me: I believe that all work days should include a mandatory 20 minute dance party, that everyone should fall in love with someone of the same gender at least once in their lives and that “I’m sorry” should be replaced with “thank you.” I’ve been known to stop for three scoops of chocolate ice cream on my way home from the gym, and sometimes I tell my wife I’m working when really I’m at home watching TV in my pajamas. Last but not least, I believe we should all say something GREAT about our partners every night before bed - especially when we don’t want to!

  • When COVID-19 impacted our destination wedding, my now wife and I had to start from scratch and scramble to plan a new wedding in Sonoma County after deciding to keep our original date. It was the best decision we ever made. We streamed the event on Zoom, allowing our family and friends to tune in. When looking for a wedding officiant we came across Lauren Snead’s profile and could instantly feel a connection with her energy and approach to the wedding process. On our first call with her, we knew we had made the right decision. Lauren was so understanding of our situation and was willing to adjust her typical process to accommodate our shortened timeline. We can’t express how much we got out of working with her. Through all of our discussions, Lauren crafted a ceremony that was so intimate and spoke to our relationship and future together. Her ability to take all of the information we had provided through engaging conversations and distill it into such a beautiful ceremony impre... Read more
