Shades of You San Diego Wedding Services Rev. Joanna Caro
A beautiful personalized sand ceremony.

About Rev. JoAnna Caro:   

  • Twenty years experience as an Interfaith Minister in San Diego, Ca.
  • Specializing in small, medium size, and military weddings.
  • Previous owner of Shades of You Wedding Services.
  • June 2016, I moved to Port Ludlow, Wa.  Former clients, friends and family convinced me to restart my wedding business in the spectacular Northwest. Happily that has happened.
  • Served as a Peace Corp Volunteer in Kenya, East Africa which inspired an interest in primitive ceremonies and world religions.
  • A background in psychology, theater and possessing a ‘passion for words’ can explain my joy in being a wedding officiant.  
  • I was a Navy bride and I understand the unique needs and challenges facing military couples.

What experience brings:

  • Understanding that couples want their wedding day to be a ‘dream come true’ and doing my part toward that vision.
  • Wearing appropriate attire for casual, formal and even theme weddings.
  • Getting my feet wet to help a photographer to take the perfect wedding photo.
  • I’ve been grateful to officiate weddings in a hot air balloon, a gondola, and the San Diego Naval Hospital for a wounded warrior.
  • Realizing, sometime a little humor during a wedding ceremony can add a nice touch.
