Meet Your Wedding Officiator


Welcome to my corner of love and celebration! My name is Sandy Arce Fernandez, and I’m delighted to share a little glimpse into my world with you. Born and raised in the vibrant outskirts of New Orleans, I’ve grown to adore the tapestry of emotions that love and matrimony weave, much like the rich culture of this remarkable city.

My journey led me to become an ordained and licensed wedding officiant in Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard, and St. Tammany Parishes. As I continue to spread the joy of love, I’m also in the process of extending my licensure to select parts of Mississippi. Through the heartwarming connections I make and the ceremonies I lead, I’ve found my true calling.

Warmly, Sandy Arce Fernandez

Kind Words

My husband and I decided to do an elopement ceremony rather than a traditional wedding. Sandy helped us prepare for our ceremony by sending us questions about our relationship and promises we wanted to make to each other.

The day of our ceremony, we had a change of plans due to weather. Sandy was right on board and was able to meet us at our new location without a problem! Sandy was very personal with her invocation and created a beautiful moment for us.

After the ceremony, she walked us through what the next steps were for our marriage license and ensured everything would be taken care of. I highly recommend Sandy as an officiant as she is very personal and professional.
