Hello and Welcome!
Boom Married Officiating Services started in February 2021. Erica started the company because of the hardships she encountered while planning her own wedding in 2020. The search to find someone that looked like her, and willing to marry two women, was exhausting. She discovered by the lack of representation in this industry that there was a need for diversity in the officiants that service Ohio.
Since the inception, Boom Married has received an overwhelming amount of customer inquiries and support. So much so that we were turning away business because there was only one officiant. As of July 2022, we have grown tremendously and now consist of 4 professional women who offer Officiating Services, Wedding Management Services, and ASL Interpreting Services
Our All-Star Officiants are ordained nationally and licensed to perform non-denominational ceremonies in Ohio. Our All-Star Assistants will manage the logistics and execute your vision on your big day! Our All-Star Interpreter allows you to have an inclusive event.
We all work diligently to ensure that we will provide an All-Star Experience for you for your wedding, elopement, vow renewal or commitment ceremony!

What Our couples are saying
Married July 8, 2022
Erica was truly fantastic! My partner and I met her at an LGBT+ wedding expo, where we discussed the possibility of eloping with her and knew she would be an excellent officiant. Shortly after we got in touch and just a few weeks ago she married us in the Park of Roses. She was always extremely easy to communicate with, timely, encouraging, and friendly! We forgot our marriage license when we arrived at our elopement, and Erica was so patient with us as we retrieved it. We also got notice that our paperwork was finalized very quickly after the ceremony. I couldn’t recommend a more excellent business to support in Columbus for your wedding needs!!

Erica and Justice at Boom Married came though for us in a clutch. On short notice they made our special day happen. Erica was so helpful and was just as passionate for us as we were. On our special day, Justice stepped up to the plate and rocked our ceremony. The energy these two brought to our wedding was powerful and amazing. Boom Married is definitely the way to go, and I will recommend everyone. Thank you so much

Erica was so amazing from our very first conversation, when communicating leading up to our ceremony, and on our big day! I couldn’t have imagined more beautiful vows or verbal blessing than what Erica prepared for us. I was crying from the moment she started speaking. Thank you so much for making our day even more special! We will always remember you

We got the whole package! Erica was amazing with writing our script and guiding us through the process. Shawnese was a very talented ASL interpreter. LaDonna was professional, kind, with a strong voice! The whole team was flexible and even made last minute script changes due to a family emergency. We truly felt we could rely on them for anything!!
