I'm Wesley Sargent! I am your NON TRADITIONAL Wedding Officiant, Elopement Coordinator, and ultimate hype gal.
I have been a bride before so I aboslutely know how crazy things can be. I also know that your wedding day does not need to be a complicated/ stressful day. That is where I come in! The act of marriage & committing your life to another person is one of the biggest, selfless things a human being can do. This is the biggest day in your relationship & I want it to count! I want you to be able to look back and say "HELL YES this was totally us, we did the dang thing the way we wanted to!"
My biggest piece of advice for my couples is to sit down with one another & actually hear each other out. What are the most important elements of your day? What are the least important elements? - and go from there.
Your wedding day is about you two, you two only!
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I was a stay at home mom, along with running my own in home daycare business for 8 years. In my last year of childcare I started to feel unfulfilled. Funny how things work out! A long time friend recommended I should dabble into being a wedding officiant, and so I decided to give it a try. I was absolutely hooked immediately for so many reasons. It blossomed into something more than I thought it would be! Now I am here today, with hundreds of elopements under my belt & have connected & worked with so many couples. What makes me over the moon excited for couples, is hearing they had the DAY that was completely them & they wouldn't have changed a thing.
My husband- Nick, my son- Makoa, & my daughter- Kamea, are the forces behind my "why". Also. I know a lot of people don't give themselves credit, but I AM also my own "why." It is so important to me to take care of myself finding JOY in the NOW, always. My everyday practice is being grateful & bringing only positivity into my life and others.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A WEDDING OFFICIANT & COORDINATOR...
As cliche as this sounds- I love LOVE! I love being immersed in all forms of love, witnessing a strong connection between two human beings. I get the chance to make couples wedding dreams come true. When I say I am your "hype girl" I really mean it- I will probably seem more excited than you are, because I truly am over the moon happy for you both.
WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE DO YOU LOVE TO OFFER TO YOUR COUPLES?
I urge my couples to make sure "YOU DO YOU." Weddings can become so dang stressful, filled with unwanted opinions & obligations. You do not need or have time for all of that. Remember this is your day!
WHAT GETS YOU SO EXCITED ABOUT BEING A WEDDING OFFICIANT/ COORDINATOR?
Give me a couple who wants to elope, has a very adventurous spirit, doesn't mind going on a hike, getting wet in the middle of the ocean. I absolutely love ADVENTUROUS ELOPEMENTS! Whether you are renewing your vows after 2 years, 15 years, 50 years, proclaiming your love on top of a mountain or under the waterfall, gets me super duper pumped!
