“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”
Judy Garland

Reverend Arlene Goldman

LA Wedding Officiant

As a LA wedding officiant and an ordained non-denominational interfaith minister, I have the honor of creating all the wedding ceremonies and working with all our incredible couples. Paul, who’s also an experienced wedding officiant (and my husband for over 40 years), is my I.T. Guy, my web designer, my business advisor, my honey and my best friend.

LA Interfaith Ceremony

Santa Monica wedding ceremony


I have a humble Midwestern background. My search for meaning and wholeness brought me to yoga and meditation, which are an essential part of my life. I have led and conducted inspirational and devotional services for over 15 years. And although I’ve had the pleasure of performing well over a thousand wedding ceremonies, I always feel blessed to be in that sacred space with a couple as they pledge their love and commitment to one another.

“… I am so glad that you were there
in helping make our special day even more special.
You made the day perfect.”
…..Colette and Andrew Chinigo

Paul and I have two grown children and I’ve had the pleasure of officiating both their wedding ceremonies. So having also been the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom, I know what my brides and my grooms are going through!

As a LA non-denominational interfaith minister and LA wedding officiant, I create and perform all types of wedding ceremonies and I’m happy to assist you and guide you through the ceremony process. Try to remember to focus on the purpose of this day, the celebration of your love and your beloved. Enjoy your day and let’s make it fun!

“I have to tell you how many people have complimented us
on the beautiful ceremony…
[and] how spiritual and personal each of your words were…”
…..Melissa & Nick Centofanti

“From beginning to end we knew we made the right decision choosing Rev Arlene to officiate our ceremony… So many of our guests came up to us afterwards asking how we knew her and telling us that our ceremony was the best that they had ever heard. Arlene is the sweetest, easiest person to work with. She loves weddings and her positivity and happiness for a couple is real. We loved working with her and couldn’t have chosen a better person to officiate our wedding.”
…..- Jen ·& Joe Gosselin
