Frequently Asked Questions
What are your qualifications?
Christina has more than a way with words; she holds a master’s degree in English and ordination through the Universal Life Church. She has been officiating weddings since 2016 and is a member of the International Association of Professional Wedding Officiants.
How does being an English professor make sense for a wedding officiant?
An officiant with a Master of Arts degree in English ensures the ceremony will be a beautiful, memorable experience conducted by someone with public speaking skills and a strong command of the English language. When drafting the intricate details of the ceremony, Christina is mindful of diction, syntax, transitioning between ceremony segments, le mot juste, and more.
What do you charge?
On Point Officiant offers various packages, so contacting us is the best way to determine pricing for your specific needs.
Is your pricing flexible?
We take pride in maintaining a standard of excellence, and while we are unable to negotiate rates, we are happy to discuss our various packages with you.
Can I personalize my ceremony?
Absolutely! Do you want your ceremony to be traditional or casual? Do you want a romantic tearjerker or a humorous recollection of the life you and your partner have built together? Do you want all of the above? It’s no problem at all. We can work together to make the ceremony exactly as you envision it.
When do we need to book an officiant?
In California, every season is wedding season, so we recommend couples book their officiant between six and nine months in advance.
How do we book you?
After an initial consultation (via phone or Zoom), a contract must be signed, and we collect a 50% deposit. The remaining balance is due thirty (30) days before the wedding date.
Are any discounts available?
Yes! We share various discounts and sales throughout the year via social media.
Are you willing to travel?
Definitely! We love traveling, and we calculate additional fees upon booking.
Do you, the officiant, obtain the marriage license?
No. Each state varies, but no matter where you live, both parties to the marriage (you and your fiancé[e]) must appear in person to obtain the marriage license. For more information on this process, visit your local County Clerk website.
