Our History

Marian Fischer was the Wedding Coordinator at the world famous Highlands Inn in Carmel Highlands for over 20 years. Throughout her years at the Inn, she assisted thousands of couples from all over the world begin their lives together. Many of them are still in contact with her family today.

Her love for helping couples have the wedding of their dreams led her to begin Carmel Weddings in 1981. Along with her husband Bob, who was a local police officer for over 30 years, they worked together assisting Brides and Grooms have the wedding they always dreamed of. 


Marian's passion for helping people showed through in her devotion to helping couples have Affordable, Beautiful Weddings at many locations throughout the Monterey Peninsula. She was well known in the community as the 'Original Wedding Coordinator' of the area.


Marian and Bob are gone now. Daughter Kathee and granddaughter Raechel carry on in the tradition they established. Confidentiality, professionalism, and compassion are among the many qualities that Marian brought to Carmel Weddings which are still being honored today.

About Us

Kathee and Raechel work with several non-denominational and denominational ministers who can assist you with customizing your wedding vows so they exemplify the individuals the bridal couples really are. Being native to Carmel, we work with the best local vendors. Your nuptials should be the happiest moment of your life, not the most stressful, and with a Discreet, Poised and appropriately Reverent Tone, we create an easy, approachable atmosphere that will be just what you desire.


We can perform any type of ceremony you would like with an endless array of possibilities. We are here to help guide you to the wedding of your dreams. Whether it is on the Beach at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, in a beautiful church or garden, in a small Redwood Grove  or in some other magical, mystical place that the two of you have discovered and want to claim just for yourselves.


Carmel Weddings offers several styles of wedding ceremonies for you to choose from, and you should feel free to change, rewrite, or add to them to make the ceremony specific to your own experiences. Some couples prefer to write their own vows, and we  encourages couples to do this as it sets the tone for uniqueness and individuality within the marriage. You are special and your ceremony should reflect just how special your love is.


Sit back, relax, and let us know what you would like, and we will make it happen!


You CAN have a stress-free wedding!
