Delivering authentic, heartfelt ceremonies that reflect each couple's unique vision is my goal as an officiant. Licensed in Nevada & California.
Bringing couples together in marriage became my calling in 2018. I have officiated throughout the Reno/Tahoe area and am dually licensed in Nevada and California to officiate ceremonies. As a Reno Native, I have a profound appreciation for the natural beauty of Northern Nevada and Northern California. I don’t think there could be a more beautiful area to celebrate your love and commitment to your partner!
I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work and have worked with couples and families for over 10 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am passionate about working with others in an authentic and meaningful way. Bringing two people together in the sacred commitment of marriage is the ultimate gift and I am deeply honored to call officiating my profession. Taking time to connect with each couple and learning what matters most to you is how I approach crafting authentic, heartfelt ceremonies.
“Stephanie was incredible! She made us feel so comfortable and made our ceremony so special. She listened to our needs and personalized our elopement just for us. Everything was perfect and I honestly was just so much less stressed out knowing that she was the one performing our ceremony. She is the best.” -Taylor
“Stephanie was simply amazing! She stayed calm in a bit of a small storm that day. We got married in our favorite spot and she made it just so special. She kept everyone engaged, smiling and made us feel so comfortable. We couldn’t recommend her enough!” -Noelle
“Stephanie is so warm, kind and was so committed to making our wedding special and personal. The script she wrote was heartfelt and really reflected how my husband and I love each other. She's the perfect person to bring two people together in marriage.” -Michelle
“Stephanie truly embodies a warm and caring heart. She was such a wonderful addition to our ceremony! Her ideas and eloquence shine through in her delivery. She not only leaves the bride and groom feeling loved but the whole audience and participants. Stephanie-Thank you again for being part of our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful officiant!” -Jessica
“Stephanie was brought to us by our elopement planner, Ruthanne Z. We are forever grateful for this. Because we were coming into South Lake Tahoe from out of town and we had one week to plan, we did not have the chance to meet Stephanie until moments before our ceremony. During the planning, Stephanie responded quickly to all our questions and she made sure she understood what we were looking for in our ceremony. On our wedding day, despite having met moments before, we were able to build an immediate connection with Stephanie. She has a soothing, calming, and loving presence to her. She moved through the ceremony with the perfect tempo to allow us to stay calm and present in such a big moment of our lives. The words she said were perfect and reflected exactly how we felt. During our vows, Stephanie allowed my husband and I to have our own moment alone. We felt it was just the two of us, holding hands, and telling each other how much we love each other. Stephanie was instrumental in making our day special. If you are looking for a loving, caring, and calming officiant to help make your wedding day special, Stephanie is the perfect fit.”
