“Monumental Arizona Weddings” Debra Joaquim and her team are non-denominational ministers who specialize in not only officiating wedding but helping couples to plan their weddings in remote locations. We are legally sanctioned by the State of Arizona to perform wedding ceremonies anywhere in the state. We will assist you in making sure you secure a marriage license issued by one of the Justice Court locations on the way to your wedding site and assist you with permit requests should they be necessary. We have have over 20 years of experience planning weddings & events in remote locations in Arizona and Southern Utah.
As spiritual humanists we are reverent of the beauty of nature, we honor all spiritual beliefs and respect the many traditions our couples wish to share. We will provide you with a wedding ceremony outline. You may choose your words from our suggestions or you may write your own personal vows which you can share with one another on your wedding day or for those of you that are a bit shy, we will happily read your vows for you.
Our Officiants will perform your ceremony in nature and provide the knowledge and experience to help guide you through this unique and wonderful adventure. Life is an adventure. Begin your lives together under the heavens where the rocks and the trees are listening and the water is your music. Better yet, bring along a Native American flute player to fill the air with sounds that echo from Arizona’s true spirit.
We will happily travel to remote locations, hike for many miles and sleep under the stars. We are certified guides for the Grand Canyon, Tonto National Forest and CPR as well as first-aid trained. We also have a certified cave guide on staff for when you need a minister in a really remote location.

For our international couples, you will need to pay a $27.00 fee for a copy of your license after it is recorded, then fill out an Apostille form for the Arizona Superior Court and pay the $3.00 fee. An apostille is an internationally accepted legal document to verify your wedding license. You can of course do this yourself and it will take time for them to mail the copy to you, you to mail it back with the Apostille form and $3.00 payment and for them to mail that back to you. You will also need to include self-address stamped envelopes for everything since they do not cover postage.
For a $125.00 fee we are happy to process this for you. The fee includes the $27.00 license copy, the $3.00 Apostille fees and postage to mail it all directly to you. This process takes 2-3 weeks following your wedding.
