AC Warden was the first and only officiant we met with. We knew she was a perfect fit immediately. Both my husband and I are not particularly religious and did not have any specific traditions we wanted incorporated into the wedding. Our only request was that we wanted something specific to us and AC absolutely delivered. Several of our guest commented on how perfect she was in our ceremony. It was not too long nor too short but was very personalized. Our bridal party was a little rowdy and distracted at our rehearsal. AC was able to control the group professionally and explain the entire ceremony thoroughly. She was also punctual which I deeply appreciated (especially considering DC traffic can be unpredictable). The entire ceremony flowed flawlessly. Additionally, she offered numerous options for us incorporate readings and other traditions should we choose. I chose to read "Chaos of Stars" and many guests commented on how beautiful it was. I would not have known of the reading or the many others had it not been for AC. When we went to get our marriage license, the court representative saw AC's name in the database of officiants and mentioned how several couples use her and adore her. You cannot go wrong.

A.C. Warden was a dream to work with. Several guests made unprompted comments that the ceremony was the best they'd seen. With A.C.'s help and hard work, it was easy for us work together to come up with a personal, meaningful, and customized ceremony that was not only beautiful and engaging, but also organized and professional. A.C.'s wide knowledge of various traditions as well as her knowledge and acceptance of non-traditional ceremony elements made it easy and comfortable to assemble a unique ceremony that fit my wife and I perfectly. When I read A.C.'s first draft of our ceremony, it was so beautiful I was literally moved to tears of happiness. A.C. not only helped keep my wife and I on track, she also kept our attendants in line at the rehearsal so that everyone knew what to do on the big day. A.C.'s patience and experience was very calming! When it came time for the big event, everything was scripted out to run smoothly, easily, professionally, and relatively stress-free! -Ahh! Wonderful! Even surprise technical difficulties (from a different vendor) were handled in stride with grace and professionalism so as to minimize the disruption. -I was so impressed! If you want a beautiful and memorable wedding ceremony that is personal, easy, and stress-free and if you dislike impersonal and awkward ceremonies, then talk to A.C. Warden at Capital Ceremonies! My wife and I could not be any happier with our experience from start to finish!

A.C. was an amazing officiant for our wedding. She helped us come up with ways to make our ceremony non-religious but still accommodate those who wanted that aspect to our wedding by suggesting a blessing of a ring. Everyone talked about how neat that was afterwards as well. She takes the time to get your ceremony perfect and I definitely recommend her for your big day!

Thank you so much for your kind words Brittney! It was such a pleasure to work with you & Ryan and to meet your wonderful families and friends.

AC was the perfect officiant for our ceremony, creating something that truly encompassed the love that Lauren and I wanted to display during our ceremony. AC was prompt and responsive in working with us to design our ceremony, and provided a ton of ideas for different elements of the ceremony reflecting our shared values. AC showed a lot of care in selecting options for readings and we truly enjoyed her idea of doing the sharing of the wine during the ceremony. Throughout the drafting of the ceremony, AC was quick to respond and incorporate any changes we desired. Many of our guests commented at how wonderful our ceremony was, which can really be attributed to AC.

My husband and I had a great experience working with AC on our wedding ceremony. We asked for a simple, authentic, intimate, and secular ceremony that was still full of heart, and we got exactly what we wanted. AC came to our first meeting equipped with a ton of options for ceremony structure, readings, and rituals for us to choose from, and she continued to be extremely responsive and helpful throughout the rest of the process. Our ceremony script was customized and felt very true to us. Many of our guests told us how beautiful they thought the ceremony was and how much they enjoyed AC's animated and sincere officiating. I can't recommend her enough!
Capital Ceremonies responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much Katie. It was such a pleasure to work with you two and to meet your wonderful families and friends. Despite the wind it was a glorious day and such an intimate group in a beautiful setting.

AC is very organized, knowledgeable, professional, and just wonderful to work with. She basically helped lay out most our ceremony, since we weren't sure how we would go about a Vietnamese/American wedding. Our ceremony was beautiful, touching, and very unique. We couldn't ask for anyone better and can't thank her enough for her amazing work. She made the whole process very easy for us...so I would definitely recommend her to any couple!

A.C. was such a pleasure to work with. We just wanted a simple ceremony in the outdoors, fashioned around our preferences and spiritual beliefs rather than repeating boilerplate that's been used a thousand times. She helped us write the perfect ceremony, and conducted it with charm, grace, and a wonderful, calming presence. We can't recommend her highly enough!

Thank you so much N&S! It was a pleasure to work with you and to meet your friends and family members in such an intimate setting. I really enjoyed the birds in the roof too!

Thank you so much Alyssa! It was such a perfect day and a beautiful location. I really enjoyed working with you and it was so wonderful to have all your family members and friends there - even the ones who got lost. Hope all of you are doing well.

AC was our officiant at our wedding June 4, 2016 in Washington, DC. She is fantastic. She really helped us create a meaningful ceremony that was true to us, our families, our faiths, and our values. Very responsive, easy to work with, a consummate professional.
Capital Ceremonies responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much Brian! It was delightful to work with both of you. I loved all the wonderful touches that were part of your wedding ceremony - especially the Brass Band. It was also wonderful to meet your family members and friends. I wish you both much happiness.

We were looking for an officiant that would make us both comfortable and would listen first to help figure out what our ceremony should be. A.C. was very easy to work with and she truly helped us make the ceremony our own. She made a lot of great suggestions and helped find style that fit us. She also had a lot of great ideas on how to bring elements of our very different backgrounds (Ukrainian and Vietnamese). Would definitely highly recommend Capitol Ceremonies.
Capital Ceremonies responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much! I really enjoyed working with you too and meeting your wonderful families and friends. Despite the weather, the warmth was abundant.

AC of Capital Ceremonies was delightful to work with. She was extremely professional and organized throughout all our dealings with her. During our initial interview, she spent a lot of time getting to know us. We really wanted to make our ceremony reflect our story and our values, and she did a fantastic job at capturing the vibe that we wanted, going back and forth on drafts until the language was just right and it flowed seamlessly. We could never have done it without her! We also had some fairly non-traditional ideas about how we wanted the ceremony to go, and she was great at helping us think through our options and logistics for our set up (in the round, walking in together, with all of our guests surrounding us). We had our ceremony in the DC War Memorial on the National Mall, and AC was a huge help at helping us figure out how best to use that space. She gave us the idea to do a sort of reverse receiving line, where we greeted guests as they arrived; we absolutely loved how it worked out! Our guests, particularly our parents, all had lovely things to say about her. Highly recommended!

Wow! What lovely things to say. It was a complete delight to work with both of you and to meet your wonderful families and friends.
