Many people call same sex marriages – gay weddings, gay marriages, or civil marriages. But your ceremony is a regular marriage that can be civil/secular, religious/Christian, or spiritual. Remember this is your special day and your ceremony should reflect your beliefs, values, and vision.

Officiant’s Previous Site

Our DC Gay Weddings sister site is being replaced by The DC Marriage Knot. We stand strong on the integration of both same sex marriages and traditional ones. Separation is never the answer to equality. Integration is the only way we can truly be united as one.

We will be so happy to see the day when these terms are no long used to describe a marriage: DC same sex marriages, gay marriages, gay weddings, civil union, commitment ceremonies, lesbian weddings or civil marriages.  In addition, we have created a DC Gay Marriage FAQ page to address any concerns you may have.

So call today, 800-893-1259, or Book Now with one of  our well known wedding officiants.
