About Us

Hello! My name is Merrie and I am a Wedding Officiant based in Southern California. I believe that weddings should be as special as the couple celebrating them. Couples will appreciate my personal approach to crafting ceremonies that reflect the personalities of those stepping down the aisle.

Silver and Sage Weddings By Merrie doesn’t believe in cookie-cutter weddings. I strive to let couples celebrate their own way, and take the time to get to know to-be-weds. I have been officiating ceremonies for over 10 years and happily welcome couples from all walks of life and beliefs to declare their love to one another. When not helping couples to tie the knot I love to spend time with my family, take road trips, read great books and listen to amazing music.

I enjoy getting to know every couple I work with before beginning to plan their ceremony in collaboration with them. This is because I believe that forming a good relationship with to-be-weds is essential. I also offer ceremony coordination on the day of events and I love sharing interesting ideas that couples can incorporate into their vows. Leading up to the event I also offers pre-marriage counseling sessions.

  • Merrie is such a blessing! My wife and I decided on a private elopement with zero guests other than a photographer and officiant. We knew we didn't want just any random person to marry us, so searching online for someone to officiate our marriage was a bit daunting. We came across Merrie's website during our planning, and we're so glad we found her! Merrie is everything you want in an officiant. She is caring, eloquent, and wise. (She also spent some time as a wedding coordinator and is very knowledgable, which was a nice bonus!) We arranged a Zoom call and she took the time to get to know us so that she could write our ceremony from the heart. She certainly does not do "cookie cutter" weddings, and she crafted such an articulate, personalized ceremony for us even after only meeting us for a short period of time. Merrie has a lovely energy, calm voice, and kind heart. We loved having her play such an important role in our big day, and we think you will too. Five stars.
