Best Day of our Life!

His- In the quiet of Washington's winter, when the transients were slowly trickling back into the silent town, I took up my father's suggestion to meet a young woman from Montana for whom he did not know a thing about. It was a blind date in the most traditional, unbiased sense.I wanted an adult … Read More

Welcome to Tie the Knot DC

Tie the Knot DC has been celebrating unions of loving couples since 2010, and each time the experience is just as blissful and exciting as the very first ceremony! I look forward to working with all couples to make your day extra special and just the way you envision it to be.

I contacted Travis about 2 months prior to the day of our ceremony. He gave us some great ideas for an outdoor ceremony and also a back up plan in case of bad weather. He was very professional and replied to my questions either the same day or next day! He made the entire process as easy and enjoyable than I ever thought possible! I’ve recommended him to all my local friends! I’m very thankful to have found him.

Travis was our first and only choice to be the officiant at our wedding. He was helpful to a fault, provided timely guidance and answers to our many concerns, and was beyond professional. He went well beyond the scope of what he was obligated to provide, and offered to assist us in any way possible – even going as far to offer to pick up our license for us just to help remove that step. Travis definitely made our wedding a special, original and memorable event and we would definitely recommend him to our friends.

Travis is not only an amazing officiant but a wonderful person. His compassion and responsiveness was honest and we felt that he truly took the time to understand our unique love and bond as a couple. Travis’ perspective on the importance of marriage helped us put into words the commitment we wanted to make to one another. He was the perfect guide through our ceremony. I would reccommend him to any type of couple. He embraces the limitless bounds of love and matrimony.

When my husband and I first got engaged we knew we wanted to have an officiant that shared our beliefs- equality for anyone who chooses to take the plunge! Through a recommendation, we were introduced to Travis. We hit it off instantly. He is easy to talk to but most importantly he wants to help make a couple’s big day their own. He provided guidance on applying for and securing that all important marriage license and sample vows. We suggested we wanted to incorporate our own vows into the ceremony and he was fully supportive. He even held mine for me and handed them to me after I walked down the aisle.
In getting to know Travis as we prepared for our wedding I was always so impressed by his ability to go from an informal wedding ceremony at Meridian Hill Park for out-of-town couples to formal affairs at an embassy. I know he even helped one couple surprise their guests who thought they were simply showing up for an engagement party. Tr…

Wonderful, Friendly, Warm, Welcoming, Helpful, Lifesaver, I called Travis a week and a half before my wedding I am from a completely different state and I was freaking out about a good officiant to fit the style of my husband and I. Not only did Travis help us with the marriage license by going up to the court house to help us out with the paper work he had suggestions of other venues incase ours didn’t work out and his response time was within the same day I contacted him. Thank you to Travis I will never forget my ceremony and I will always remember how smooth the ceremony was because of him.

Dionna and David – March 13, 2013

We are so grateful to Travis for all the wonderful things he did for us that saved us time. We literally left most of the planning up to Travis and drove into town the night before so we could be married on our tight schedule. What a wonderful Man.!!! He gave us many ideas on where to stay and have the ceremony and suggested kid friendly and pet friendly venues that could easily fit in our child (Mya) and dog (Max).  As our officiant, Travis was authorized to pick up our marriage licenses and provided us with a certified copy in the mail within a few days so we did not have to go to the courthouse. He is Amazing…. and truly A genuine soul…We were very lucky to have had him to perform our ceremony and will always recommend his services to anyone interested in marriage.
