Let's Get Married!
Hello! We are I Choose You Ceremonies and we provide wedding officiant services in Omaha, Nebraska, Council Bluffs, Iowa and surrounding areas.
We believe the wedding ceremony is where the romance, excitement, joy
and tears happen on your wedding day. It's the moment you commit your life to one another and we know each couple needs an officiant who truly can connect with them.
We'd love to get to know you, your love story and find out if we would be a good fit for your wedding. Please contact us for more information as we'd would be honored to be chosen to officiate your wedding!
"After we met with her, Tyler and I knew she was the perfect person to marry us. She was amazing through our entire wedding process, she made everything so simple."

Hello! I'm Shari McCormick.
I was an Event Planner and Wedding Coordinator and my favorite part of every wedding was the ceremony. I began I Choose You Ceremonies in 2015 and have been fortunate to grow my business every year.
I am married to my husband, Jeff and we have three grown children and have also added two wonderful son-in-laws to our family.
I love to cook big family dinners and I am a baking fool! I love to go to auctions and flea markets and antiques are my thing. I have a Great Dane, Boudreaux, and he is my baby! My husband and I have a Harley and we love to go on rides. I am considering learning to ride so I can get my own bike.
I am a country girl at heart and I recently purchased a 1900 farmhouse on a little acreage. I'm looking forward to adding to my farm with a few chickens, some goats, another dog and maybe a pig...and a huge garden!
We're proud to be a part of:
"My husband and I had set up multiple meetings with officiants to figure out who would be the best fit. After we met with Shari, we canceled all our other meetings because she impressed us so much. She was friendly, thorough, respectful, flexible, professional, and prompt throughout our entire wedding planning process."
- Lyndsey and Jackson
Your Wedding Day
Before Your Wedding
We meet couples 1-2 times before wedding day. We get information from you to really make your ceremony special to YOU. We'll provide you with a variety of scriptures, readings, vows, ring exchange verbiage to look through and see if there is anything you would like to incorporate into their ceremony. We'll set up the ceremony, have you review it and make sure it's perfect for the big day.
We need to practice! We are there to conduct your wedding rehearsal. We will do a few walk-throughs with you the couple, your family and wedding party (when to walk, where to stand, etc) so that everyone feels comfortable with what to expect for the wedding ceremony. Rehearsals seem like something that can be skipped, but trust us...it's something that is needed.
It's your big day and ours too! We're busy on wedding day making sure everything goes as we planned. We arrive early and talk with the venue, DJ, photographer, parents and of course, you to ensure everything is set. We'll make sure you have the marriage license and have that ready to be signed after the ceremony.
"When we received the ceremony script prior to the wedding, both of us were overcome with such emotion, and we knew the ceremony was going to be amazing. We just didn't realize how amazing!! Nick was so professional, yet so personable at the same time. We had guests asking us if he was a long time friend!"
