I'm Chaplain Joe Andersen available for hire for your upcoming wedding or funeral. I have been performing weddings since 2006. As a Master of Ceremonies, I help families with final wedding preparation and customize the wedding to the couple. As a non-denominational Christian minister, I have had the honor of marrying loving couples throughout the Southern California area for more than 15 years. Although Christian in faith, I understand that everyone comes from different backgrounds and different faiths. Because of this, I officiate weddings in all styles, religious or non-religious. Whatever your faith, we can work together to find you the perfect ceremony. I served 20 years in the United States Navy, then continue to serve Southern California doing weddings and funerals after I retired. That year, I started working for the National Cemetery Administration at Riverside National Cemetery and conducted over 8000 funeral services. In 2017, I decided to continue my own ministry work independently to help families. If you are searching for the perfect officiant for your wedding, I would be honored to meet with you and help you put together the perfect ceremony for your special day! For your funeral needs, as a Master of Services, I help families with closure, providing the best 30-minute committal that can be offered at any of the Southern California National Cemeteries as well as your local private cemeteries or chapels/churches. I have conducted services at Riverside National Cemetery/Miramar National Cemetery/Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery and many private facilities/cemeteries in Southern California. My sincere condolences if you have lost a loved one. Officiant fees range from $400-$800* depending on the circumstances. Additional travel fees will apply for weddings taking place more than 25 miles from zip code 92530. * holiday rates apply for certain major holidays.
