Two Guys and a Wedding began in 2006 under the leadership of Vann Cochran and Steve Vickers. For years, the duo assisted couples with officiating services, as well as photography services. Vann’s wife, Sue also photographed many couples throughout the years as part of the company.

Unfortunately, Steve passed away in April, 2023. Vann announced his retirement in November of 2023. Over the years, Alan, worked with both Steve and Vann to assist during times of heavy demand. Upon Vann’s announcement of retirement, he passed the traditions that were established by Two Guys and A Wedding to Alan, who has 28 years of officiating experience. Alan officially purchased the business in November of 2023.

Two Guys And A Wedding will help to make your day unique and special, whether you are before a large gathering of family and friends, or having a small intimate service, elopement or vow renewal. In the near future, we plan to offer ceremonial music, photography and premarital counseling. We would be happy to entertain ideas or dreams you would like to see come to reality.
