  • We utilized Sarah de la Fuente at Central Ceremonies to officiate our religious wedding ceremony in June of 2020 in Austin. Our church, Central Christian, had recommended her and CC to us. We are based in NYC, so we had an introductory call over Skype and immediately felt a connection. Sarah was so personal, warm, and really took the time to get to know us as a couple before our big day. She even came to our church walk through so she could meet us in person and get to know our families as well. When we had to pivot our wedding from a church in April to a rooftop in June due to Covid, she stuck by us all the way and was so supportive. Many of our guests raved about Sarah after the wedding and how personal and great she was - which was exactly what we wanted and were worried about when using a minister that we didn't have a relationship with previously. Can't recommend Sarah and Central Ceremonies enough for your big day!

  • Sara made our wedding so "us". She made both of us feel incredibly comfortable - we smiled, laughed, cried. The entire ceremony was a blend of spirituality, religiosity, and love was the perfect fit. We could not be more pleased and blessed that Sara ordained over our service. We miss our monthly coffee chats with her!!

  • My husband and I had the absolute pleasure to work with Sam who officiated our wedding! He was amazing to work with. When I first reached out to him, he immediately called me, and we set up a time to meet in person. We went up to Austin to meet Sam and instantly connected. He was very kind and knew exactly how the ceremony would be laid out. When planning the ceremony, Sam provided a listing of passages, readings, other ceremonies and we were able to go through and pick all our favorite items. He was also very open to anything that we wanted to include. He customized a ceremony just for us based on all the readings/passages/writings that we loved. He was very open to any edits we wanted to make, and he had the ceremony completely done a month before the wedding (which was a huge stress relief). He also made the trip from Austin to Fair Oaks on Friday just for our rehearsal and then drove back to Spring Branch on Saturday for wedding, with no complaints. My husband and I also took advan...

  • We had the pleasure having Reverend Burton officiating our marriage. He was flexible, kind, professional, and accommodating. Would recommend Central Ceremonies to anyone in the greater Austin Area.

  • I have been a wedding planner in Austin for almost 15 years. I have worked with Central Ceremonies since I started in this business and they have always been amazing to work with, so when I personally got engaged at the end of last year, it was an easy choice choosing them to handle my own ceremony. Sarah helped us surprise everyone at our engagement party with an impromptu ceremony and married us right on the spot. It was absolutely perfect!! And she will be right there with us for our big ceremony and reception next month. We were so blessed to have had her with us the first time and are so excited to have her lead us through it again. She took all of our questions and requests and turned them into the perfect ceremony that was uniquely us!! From a professional stand point I don’t hesitate to recommend all of my client to them because I know they will receive the same level of care that I did personally. All of the officiants are professional, knowledgeable and have such an ... Read more

  • Sarah was a dream to work with! My husband and I are both Catholic but didn't want anything formal. We wanted a ceremony that's representative of us: lighthearted, funny, heartwarming and super chill.. Every single interaction whether via email or on the phone was super easy with Sarah. She understood us very well and totally delivered! Sarah was awesome and I would highly recommend her for your special day! :)

  • Sarah officiated our wedding which was a small intimate ceremony. She was so professional, yet personable and provided a range of options based on what worked for us. She gave us a variety of ceremonies to get ideas for what we wanted then wove that along with personal pieces about us into a beautiful, perfect length ceremony that incorporated our faith, our children, and equal partnership with each other. Sarah went above and beyond in helping to pick the perfect location and worked with us to incorporate our children. She and Austin Weddings Unlimited made our ceremony even better than what we envisioned. Other than my husband, Sarah is the best decision we made!

  • Sarah and her team are absolutely incredible to work with! Sarah is a master at wordsmithing and will put your vow ideas to life with such craft. With all of the planning and logistics that go into weddings these days, it can be easy to lose sight of the most important part of the day - the ceremony! Sarah is extremely responsive and available for questions and will help you as much (or as little!) as you need to create the perfect ceremony. She's also EXTREMELY detailed, yet efficient when conducting the rehearsal and her experience with weddings shines brightly. I cannot recommend her enough!

  • Sara officiated our wedding and was incredible. I loved our ceremony and she worked with us to get it just right. I received so many compliments after of how beautiful and personal it was. She was also very helpful at the rehearsal wrangling out big group and providing so much advice. She was so great.

  • Sarah worked so closely with us to make sure that we had the absolute perfect ceremony. She took time to get to know us, our backgrounds and our family's background to make sure that our ceremony was everything we ever dreamed of. She was a blast and we got so many compliments from our guests about how much the enjoyed the ceremony. Many saying it was the first wedding where they wanted to pay attention. She included our guests without drawing out the ceremony. She also took the time to coach the best men in how to hand over the rings to avoid any embarrassing spills which we found very helpful and reassuring.

  • I'd expected a wedding officiant to be a little stuffy and opinionated, but Sarah just wanted the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted. She provided a few templates for us to start with, which was a huge help. I still ended up going in my own direction, but I was completely lost prior to starting our vows, so it really helped to have a few examples. I personally didn't want any religious aspect, and Sarah had no objections to that. I didn't feel judged or like I was breaking some important rule. On the day of the wedding, the bride doesn't spend much time with the officiant, but the rest of the wedding party does. The feedback I got from them was that Sarah was funny, kept the mood light (even when our sound cut out and I had to wait to walk down the aisle - people thought I wasn't coming), and she was very professional. Her experience clearly showed. If I could do it all over again, I would definitely hire Austin Weddings Unlimited!

    Ahhh! Thank you Kristy! So glad to have shared this time with y'all, and be a part of your wedding. Lucky me! So funny about the sound going out . . . hey, nothing like a dramatic pause, right?!

  • We feel so fortunate to have had Sarah officiate our wedding. She provided us with several templates to help us get started scripting our ceremony, but was also able to provide suggestions and feedback to our personal edits, and help us write something that was uniquely us. On the day of, she arrived early and was a calming presence who helped put us at ease. The ceremony itself went fabulously, and guests raved about her after the fact. We couldn't have been happier!

  • My (now) wife and I had the pleasure of working with Cam. We booked pretty late in the game - about a month and a half before the wedding - and Cam worked in double time to help us put our ceremony together. Cam sent us plenty of example material, and when we decided to write our own ceremony, he provided great feedback and expertly offered the perfect reading to fill things out. On the day of, Cam was calm and confident, which was exactly what we about-to-be-newly-weds needed him to be. He delivered our ceremony with wonderful inflection and pacing. If I were to get married again, I wouldn't hesitate to call Cam up to be our officiant a second time. Thanks, Cam!

  • When the time came for my own wedding, there was no doubt in my mind that Sarah was the best person to preside over our ceremony. Sarah has been a trusted friend and fellow pastoral colleague of mine for almost a decade now. She brought a depth of wisdom, grace, humor, and confidence in to our ceremony that only a gifted and seasoned professional can do. And I would know, because I am one (I'm one of AWU's team members)! There is nobody else I would have trusted more with such an important day.

  • We booked Sam from Austin Wedding Unlimited, and we felt very comfortable working with him. He has a calm personality and was very easy to work with. He was mindful about what type of ceremony my husband and I wanted (we're not religious and wanted it to be completely secular) and respected our decisions. He provided very helpful scripts of previous wedding ceremonies for us to see, and we were able to use that to help write our vows and make our ceremony more personalized and special. On the day of the wedding, everything went very smoothly and as planned - we wouldn't have wanted it any other way!
