Holiday Weddings, Often Unforgettable - Dock 580

As a wedding officiant I see marriages all year long and here I was at Dock 580 venue in Columbus, Ohio! Helene and Michael were the bride and groom and they chose a sand ceremony to add meaning and symbolism as two people, and two families, became one! The extra jars of sand were for the groom's children and the completed ceremony demonstrates the union of all the members of this new family, now inseparable!

No photographer is mentioned because this was a photo I took! Bride's bouquet is amazing. Yes, that is butter in the right hand corner, however, it is in the shape of flowers. What fun.

Kayln & Matt - The Columbus Museum of Art

Serving as the wedding officiant at the Columbus Museum of Art in Ohio is always a wonderful experience for me. Katie Laux and the staff there are fantastic, and the lighting is often excellent for those important wedding photos. I was privileged to celebrate with Kayln & Matt on their special day! Their reception was held at the Boat House at Confluence Park in Columbus, a very picturesque location for any event. At the Boat House, Matt and Kayln threaten each other with wedding cake! They appear so happy together. In a later shot you will see that they both scored points with that desert! Who won? You'll just have to wait and see.

Wedding Officiant for Darlene & Don at Jorgensen Farms near Columbus Ohio

Darlene and Don enjoy a special moment on their wedding day in Greater Columbus Ohio. They needed an officiant and had a friend call me first. Their friend explained how they wanted a simple, yet intimate and meaningful ceremony at Jorgensen Farms in Westerville. The bride and groom scheduled a meeting with me at our office and we began to design their personalized ceremony on the spot.

Making It Legal

Rachelle and Matt's marriage license signed by officiant, Damian King, in Columbus Ohio

I love this photo taken by a friend of Rachelle and Matt after their wedding. I felt fortunate to be the wedding officiant for this dedicated couple as they became husband and wife that day in Columbus, Ohio.

Signing the marriage license is the last step of the process. The couple's marriage certificate is signed and filed with the county, and then the probate court certifies the marriage on the county records. Then the couple can request their "marriage abstract", which is the document that says they are married. The marriage abstract is the document that a new wife presents to the Social Security Administration for her name change.

For more information about applying for and certifying your marriage in Franklin County, follow this link to the Franklin County Probate Court - Marriage License Department. They have some great information there that couples find very helpful.

Thanks for visiting my website and have a great day!
