Reserved Ground is a wedding officiant service operating out of Redlands, California. Founder Reverend Krista Messam has over 10 years of experience in clinical chaplaincy. She has been deeply inspired by her work in this field and so her approach towards wedding services is centered around bonding and healing. Reverend Krista hopes to engage all attendees in an inclusive celebration of the newlyweds-to-be.
Reserved Ground is committed to making sure that each ceremony honors the couples’ personalities. In reflection of this, clients are invited to an initial meeting where the officiant can learn more about them. Follow-up consultations are freely available via phone and email. Assistance in writing or selecting vows can be sought from this team, as can their expertise to coordinate bespoke ceremonies. A member of this team can also attend your rehearsal to ensure that the ceremony runs to schedule. Following your celebration, a signed marriage license can be mailed out the next working day. While primarily serving the Inland Empire area, Reserved Ground is available to travel to San Bernardino, Riverside, Los Angeles, and San Diego Counties.
