About Us

A number of couples in committed loving relationships choose to celebrate their weddings on the Mendocino Coast, a natural and powerful place for coming together. People from a variety of backgrounds are attracted to the beauty of the Mendocino area and since 1983 it has been my privilege and pleasure to perform hundreds of wedding ceremonies as a nondenominational minister, from elopements to large gatherings.

Feel free to contact me by phone or email. If you choose to use my services I will prepare a full ceremony for you, along with optional readings, which I will send to you. Take time to read the material with each other to insure the words will speak for both of you, especially the vows. You may feel free to create your own. I will welcome any input that the two of you may have.

You may have particular wishes for your ceremony, so when we communicate, please bring to my attention any cultural, religious, personal or creative aspects that either of you would like to incorporate.

It will be a privilege and a pleasure celebrate your wedding day with you.

Best wishes,
James Sibbet

What a gift to have a partner and personal witness
