Welcome!

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! 

If you’re looking for a professional team that is flexible, welcomes customized ceremonies, and will keep your guests engaged and enthralled in the moment, then you have found that team with I Do Ceremonies! – John and Rosita August 2018

After 10+ years and over 800 wedding ceremonies in Austin and the surrounding Hill Country I Do Ceremonies has established itself as one of Austin’s most recommended officiant teams!

From the attention to details which make the ceremony planning easy and fun, to the professionalism that handles unexpected events with grace and care, it is no wonder I Do Ceremonies is who wedding planners want for their ceremony. Stephen takes the stress off not only the couple, but off venue managers, wedding planners and other wedding professionals.

Stephen Simmons is the lead officiant and has enjoyed creating personalized and customized ceremonies since 2005. As demand for his officiant services grew, he established I Do Ceremonies and welcomed another minister, Loren, who brings the same level of care to the team.

One of the greatest compliments given is when a couple states, “It felt like we had known Stephen a long time.”  The goal of I Do Ceremonies is to provide an easy and organized way to create your ceremony, and for it to reflect what is important to you as a couple.

May 2015 – Stephen Simmons was our officiant for our wedding this past May. Stephen was extremely responsive and helpful during the planning process. He was very prompt in responding to my emails and answering my questions. After spending weeks looking for an officiant, we finally met with Stephen who was so thorough in explaining what services we were getting and was so personable during our first meeting that we immediately booked him that day. Stephen’s website was also very helpful in planning our ceremony because it contained hundreds of examples that we were able to pick and choose from to help create the perfect ceremony. Stephen was so very kind during our wedding planning and I could not recommend him enough!! –
