“From my first phone call with Wayne to writing the ceremony with him and finally being on the beach together to marry us, Wayne was the perfect officiant. He guided us through the whole process and made us feel incredibly relaxed and at ease. The ceremony itself was heartfelt, fun, and easy-going.“
Since 2005 as an ordained minister with Centers for Spiritual Living- formerly Religious Science International – and your dedicated wedding officiant, I cherish the opportunity to connect directly with couples and put into words the expressions of the most crucial relationship in their lives.
Your wedding day is one of the rare defining milestones of your life, a powerfully galvanizing moment that will change your lives forever.
I take great pride in imbuing your wedding ceremony with a celebration of love, joy,excitement, vitality, and strength, which will unite the two of you and inspire all who witness a magical co-created wedding.
At most weddings, everyone there only knows either the bride’s or the groom’s side. I particularly love blending both their backgrounds into what I call his-story and her-story.
I will dedicate many hours to making your wedding / elopement/ renewal ceremony personalized, extraordinary, and memorable for you, ensuring it is perfect; the ceremony your guests will say is the best they’ve ever experienced. It’s filled with loving care!
“I have proudly been the Couples’ Choice Award with either WeddingWire or the Knot consistently since 2018 and have over 450+ happy and satisfied couples!”
I honor all religious / spiritual affiliations, denominations, all creeds, attuning all clients according to their hearts and souls’ wishes.
It’s fun with combining their backgrounds, e.g. Celtic-Buddhist, Hindu-Catholic; spiritual-agnostic, and other variations, too.
I include many additional celebrations at no additional cost: Unity Candle-lighting, Sand Ceremony, Wine and/or Rose Ceremonies; what about a time capsule, a tree planting, hand-fasting, rings, lasso, or even a burning bowl to release the past?
The doves and butterflies released at the end are spectacular- those are an extra expenditure from specific vendors, and well worth it.
I also offer other services outside of traditions, including counseling, prayers, life celebrations and memorial ceremonies. All are heartfelt and loving-based.
One Spirit Ministries is available to perform ceremonies, even on short notice. Once I officiated a wedding in less than 24 hours.

“We found Wayne online from a friend who recommended him to be our officiating pastor. He was very professional, respectable, and extremely helpful. He sent us passages from the Bible and other quotes that he researched for us that he thought we like or that would be appropriate for our ceremony and vows. He was such a joy to talk to and Zoom call with and it was an absolute pleasure and honor having him perform our ceremony. He was a great sport too as we all had to take off our shoes and walk barefoot on the beach and in the ocean to get to the spot where we decided to have the ceremony in Avila Beach, CA. I highly recommend him as he was very flexible with our schedules and available when we needed him and just such an awesome guy! He even took photos of the 4 of us and they came out wonderful! I would include a video of our wedding but since we wrote our own vows and they were personal about us I didn’t want to post it but it went exactly as we had discussed and we were very happy with our decision to hire Wayne. :)”

Wayne was really great. My wife and I decided to put together an impromptu wedding at a beautiful little restaurant in Ojai for our family. The wedding was a surprise to everyone but me, my (now) wife, and Wayne. We called Wayne and asked him to tap on my shoulder and ask “Are you Grant . . . and are you Tobi?” After playing dumb, he said “well, stand up, you’re getting married.” After everyone picked themselves off the floor, Wayne lead us through an amazing ceremony that had the entire restaurant laughing, cheering, and crying. He really was amazing. We are so grateful for Wayne’s approach and attitude. He was the best!

Wayne was amazing very compassionate to our circumstances I loved his enthusiasm and humor very considerate to our special day he treated it like any other he is greatly appreciated I would definitely recommend him to everyone and I would definitely want him to remarry us in our future anniversary.

Wayne from One Spirit Ministries did an amazing job officiating our ceremony! He really spent the time getting to know us and our full story, and incorporated that into a very personal ceremony. Our vows and his reading went together seamlessly! We had only really talked on the phone once or twice before the ceremony, as it was a destination wedding for us. But come rehearsal, he was so kind and acted like we had known each other for years. Highly recommend Wayne!
