About Whitney

Hi, my name is Whitney Pintello McClelland. I am a wedding officiant in the south Bay Area, California. Thank you for your interest in learning more about me.

My road to becoming an officiant is probably as varied as the road that brought you here.  Ever since childhood, I have been involved with arts, eventually earning my bachelor's degree in Creative Arts from San Jose State University. Theatre, speech, and creative writing are passions of mine, and are the foundations of my dynamic personality. 

After a time as a high school English and Drama teacher, I took a break to start my family. While I was at home with my family, I was lucky to discover a hidden interest and flair for painting.  I have now been in business as a decorative painter and muralist for seven years.  I’ve enjoyed the personal connections with people as much as the varied designs and locations. A couple of years ago, I was encouraged by friends of mine in the wedding business to use my talents to officiate weddings.  I loved it from the start! 

My success in officiating comes from the very basic and important desire to hear your wishes, to make those real on your wedding day.  My background in public speaking, as a teacher and in theatre, has provided me with the skills I need to perform a ceremony you will remember. My ability to communicate with you, your family, and wedding party will make the planning, the rehearsal, and the wedding ceremony effortless. 

To your happiness!
