Rev. Charles Grande officiates weddings throughout Northern California. He has officiated at Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, non-denominational, interfaith and “spiritual, not religious” ceremonies. With an MA in both Theology and Psychology, Rev. Charles draws upon this background to discover and comprehend the unique beliefs of each couple. He’ll tailor the ceremony to your specifications (a very solemn religious ceremony, or a lighter, more secular one?) and even help with your own vows and with obtaining your marriage license. When he meets with each couple, he provides a comprehensive wedding packet of information to use as a worksheet to prepare your ceremony to reflect your beliefs, values and traditions.
Rev. Charles’ Wedding Packet includes:
There are no required classes or other stipulations that a couple must satisfy to work with Rev. Charles. For those interested in marriage preparation, he can arrange for pre-marital classes.
Honest. Sincere. Kind.
You won't find anyone more attentive to your needs than myself.
That the only job of the officiant is to show up five minutes before a ceremony. The truth is, much pre-planning must take place to have a ceremony go smoothly. And I always arrive at least an hour early to the ceremony!
I have always wanted to be of service to others, so officiating weddings was a natural fit.
A happy bride and groom at the end of the ceremony.
That people are different, and to never judge anyone.
Start well before the date of the wedding.
Warm, kind, understanding.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Never let the sun set on your anger.

“He respected our wishes and requests, and added on his own ideas to really flesh everything out.”
“You can tell Rev. Charles takes pride in his work and strives to do his best at every ceremony he participates in.”
“During the ceremony Rev. Grande exceeded my expectations. I appreciated that he injected some humor into our ceremony (which he asked for permission to do).”
“I felt he listened to what I asked and tailored the ceremony to my needs.”
“I was very satisfied with his services. His pricing is very reasonable. He was always readily available to answer my questions and very easy to work with.”
“He spoke in a loud and clear voice during the ceremony and even made a few jokes, which was nice.”
“He really took my descriptions of the feel of the day and helped us come up with a ‘script’ that fit it perfectly.”
“Everyone raved about him. He made our ceremony the grand, significant, religious, beautiful event it was meant to be. We didn’t want anything to be downplayed and he hit every note on the head.”
“He gave us a list of both traditional and contemporary vows and also the option to come up with our own. It was nice to have something to choose from as well as the opportunity to pick something else.”
