Socially Distanced Ceremonies

The new normal is upon us, and the goals are simple. Be safe. Be healthy. Be married.

Reverend Rob has made changes to his ceremony to meet all three goals.​ He will be happy to perform your ceremony while we are winding our way to the tail end of the pandemic (fingers crossed), while following the county guidelines in effect on your wedding day. You can find the most recent San Diego County Public Health Order.

  • Reverend Rob will offer The Small Ceremony or The Full Ceremony to be performed outdoors only

  • The number of attendees will not be more than the County Health Order in effect on your wedding date will allow (including the couple and Reverend Rob)

  • All present (except for the couple) should maintain a six-foot distance from each other

  • The couple must hold their own rings
  • Masks must be in use prior to and following the ceremony


For the business end of the ceremony, Reverend Rob will take these measures when working with the witness to sign the license:

  • He will work with the witness to complete the paperwork while maintaining a social distance

  • While the County Recorder office remains closed, the license will be returned to the couple in order to be mailed to the county office

Can your wedding still be fun and reflect you during this time? Of course it can!. Like many things in life, it is what you make of it. Be safe. Be healthy. Be married.
