About Us

NOW you need someone to MARRY YOU and here I am.

Obviously you have gathered that my name is Christel Stuart. Now, let me tell you a little about me. I left a 10 year career with AT&T to do what I do now. Officiating weddings has been the most fun, rewarding, exciting, and joyous “job” of my life. My first ceremony was my cousin’s wedding in Costa Rica in 2014 in front of a breathtaking waterfall.

Not a bad day at the office, am I right?

Cut to 6 years later and I have officiated almost 500 ceremonies in several states AND countries! I am happy to dress in costume, perform rituals like unity candles and knot-tying.

I offer custom vows or read the ones you have prepared.

When 2 people stand before me, they are filled with love and nerves and sometimes whiskey! I say some pretty words and ask some important questions and PRESTO-CHANGE-O they are MARRIED! So “changing lives” isn’t something I take lightly. Some people want a quick ceremony to “get it done” and some want the puffy marshmallow dress and the string quartet.

I respect all of those decisions. I want to complement your day. I want your wedding to feel like a dear friend told your story! I want you and your guests to say, “usually the ceremony part can be boring, but she was the best officiant I have ever seen!”

My motto is "Laughter and tears... as long as they aren't MY tears"

I live in between Austin and Bastrop. I have lived in Texas almost my entire life. I am married to a terrific, patient, handsome man named Austin and have a stepdaughter, Riley, who impresses me daily with the young woman she is becoming. Austin left a 16+ year career with AT&T to pursue HIS dream, photography (his website is here if you want to check out his phenomenal work.)

Heck of a duo, right? We have a company where we offer officiating and photography, and photo booth services together. You can check us out at Hand Heart and Crown Weddings

(ya know… in case you haven’t booked your photographer yet!)

I would love to find out more about you and what your perfect wedding day looks like. I want to change your life and marry you to the love of your life in a field, under a tree, at an outdoor chapel, in a gorgeous venue, or even out of the country. My passport is current and I can always use more stamps in it!

  • What can I say, no words will do justice describing Christel, but I will try. Christel made our wedding the happiest day of our lives, and trust me it was no easy task. Our wedding day was March 21st right as COVID hit the hardest. We couldn’t have the wedding we wanted, but Christel came through like a champ! I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I met Christel at my son’s wedding and really got to know her at my daughters wedding, that’s when I knew that she was going to do our wedding. If you want someone who will truly care about your wedding ceremony, the Bride, Groom, Brides Maids, Groomsmen, Mom and Dad for both Bride and Groom and all the family, you want Christel! THANK YOU CHRISTEL! We love you and you will always have a very special place in our hearts!
