Capital Ceremonies has been owned and operated by Celebrant, A.C. Warden since 2005. From time to time other Officiants join in as well. Whether it be a wedding, a vow renewal, a baby blessing, memorial service, funeral or house blessing, Capital Ceremonies can make your special day even more special and meaningful for you. We create and officiate custom-designed ceremonies. We work with people of all religions and cultures as well as those who want a non-religious or spiritual ceremony. We have always been proudly gay-friendly and have been endorsed by Kathryn Hamm at GayWeddings.com

“AC, you were born for this. We knew from our first meeting that you were the perfect person to help us…Thank you for your kindness and guidance and the care you’ve shown us” Brett & Kelsey, Wedding, Washington, DC
I am A. C. Warden, a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® and ordained interfaith minister (UBM). I have been helping people highlight all their milestones since 2004. I love crafting ceremonies that are particularly relevant to our lives today.
In a way I have always been a Celebrant. When I was 7 years old and attending a Lutheran school, we were required to attend church every week. My family was not Lutheran and we didn’t always go to church. At those times, I led ceremonies in our living room. Later in life, before I was trained to be a Celebrant, my friends were always calling on me to lead ceremonies or worship services of all sorts.
In my other life I am a filmmaker. I have produced, directed, and edited documentary films and videos for over 30 years. I have made independent films and videos and worked for PBS, National Geographic TV, Discovery, and the Smithsonian. Both filmmaking and Celebrancy exercise my talents – researching, writing, producing, and public speaking.
Contact me. I’d love to speak with you about your plans.
