Rev Saundra was excellent! She was patient, kind, thoughtful, understanding, and flexible. She completely embraced and accommodated the unique nuances of our multi-cultural ceremony. She took time to study and learn ancient san-san-kudo rituals without being prompted. She also reminded us of everything that needed to be done-- from our marriage license and vows, to hugging and kissing our parents at the alter when we were too busy or preoccupied to think about such details. We highly recommend Rev. Saundra for your wedding! You won't be disappointed!

If there was a ten star rating, I would give it to Mr Ben Miyaji a very Profesional wedding officiant. He was very attentive during my wedding planning. He kept in touch till my wedding date. He arrived before the time set, and he performed a simple brief ceremony as we asked. Thank you so very much Mr Miyaji. Toni and Ron.

He was the best! I would highly recommend him if you want someone who is punctual, respectful,reliable, and professional. Unfortunately our wedding ceremony was not able to start on time due to a personal matter that took place. Our wedding was suppose to start at 3pm and he had another wedding ceremony to do at 4:30. I communicated with him and let him know what happen and our situation. I asked him would it be possible if he can go to his next appointment since we were not ready yet, and then come back. He said yes he will be able to do so, which made me feel so much better because i was starting to panic and I didn't know what we were going to do if he had not been able to come back. He was able to, so I was so happy that we had that option. After he was done with the other ceremony he let me know he was done and asked did I still need him to come back I told him yes, and he came back. He prayed with us before the ceremony and after that he performed our ceremony and he did a wonderful job. I am really thankful and appreciate that he was still able to officiant our wedding even after the setback we had. Thanks again I really really appreciate it, and by the way I loved how you put our love story together, it was great! If anyone was is looking for a great officiant, like I mention earlier, I would highly recommend him as the one to perform your special ceremony.

My new husband and I were very happy with Rebeca's role as our officiant for our wedding at San Francisco City Hall. She was very easy to work with over email (we were planning from out of town) and worked with us in developing our ceremony service every step of the way. Thank you for marrying us!!

Andy was not only the officiant of my wedding but he is also my uncle, so my wedding ceremony was very special to me. However, if I could look back from an unbiased point of view and focus on The facts, I would still tell others that Andy is an awesome officiator! He spent much time rehearsing the script, however it did not come across as "over rehearsed". He was a natural speaker, paused when he should pause, was able to laugh along with us, and was clear and easy to understand. He added personal touches to the script and was ready to make any changes I had for him. Andrew is a great speaker and the ceremony was beautiful. After realizing I forgot to sign our official marriage license, Andy made a special trip to help me sign the papers the day after the wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better officiator!

We had a small wedding in Sonoma county and Phil was great, he was available on short notice. we also decided to have him sing a song for us. We chose on that was not on his list and he was able to learn it in about a few days before the wedding. All the wedding guest were surprised and loved it. Thanks Phil for being our officiant for our special day.

I would highly recommend LadyMarry, I was travelling from overseas for my wedding and Birte could not have been more helpful, any advice I required she happily gave, responded to all my e mails in a timely manner. The flowers she provided were absolutely stunning, they lasted so long too. I would highly recommend if anyone is looking for any advice on weddings that they use LadyMarry. Birte, thank you so much for helping make our wedding day so special.

My husband and I were married in July 2012. Shyamala Littlefield is the consummate wedding officiant; she is warm, sociable, has a great speaking voice and is very responsive and creative. We contacted Shyamala about 9 months prior to our wedding and had a telephone conversation with her. We instantly knew that she was "the one" for us. Because my husband and I had conflicting schedules, we met Shyamala initially through Skype to discuss our vision for our wedding. Later on, we met at our home in Oakland. It was lovely to meet her face to face, and I knew then that our ceremony was in good hands. Throughout the process of planning our wedding, Shyamala kept in touch with us. When we came down to the "wire" for our wedding and had to change some details we had previously discussed, she was able to integrate them into our ceremony seamlessly. Our ceremony was beautiful and memorable. We loved it so much and cannot wait to relive it when we see our wedding video. Thank you, Shyamala, for a beautiful ceremony. I would highly recommend her!

Sam is one of my dear friends! Met her on MS charity ride in 2012. She put her heart and soul to organize our Misfit team. She did outstanding job by putting 15-20ppl +bikes in vans and go to southern ca for 2 days ride! When came to my wedding, I had no doubt Sam was the person. I asked her not to make it religious yet spiritual She kept it 15-20 long as was requested and fun. She listened to our love stories beforehand, so She could bring our past way before my husband and I met and nicely lined it up with our present, showing why we meant to be together. She made it, magical, spiritual, fun, small music clips between, and well delivered!! Love my friend Sam, am so happy she gave us this honor to be part of our wedding🌹🦋💖!! She made it unique and all about us!!! Thank Sam making that important day majical for us!!

Robert Mize was our wedding officiant, and we couldn't have been happier with how the ceremony turned out. He was highly organized and took time to plan the flow and order well in advance with us. We appreciated how he took our thoughts and opinions and incorporated them in the service, which made for a personalized ceremony that reflected us as a couple. It was a seamless experience from beginning to end. Robert's good natured personality was also calming throughout the wedding process, and we received many compliments on the ceremony afterwards (not something you often hear)!

Sheryl is really amazing,are wedding ceremony was more than a job to her. She made sure that everything was better than planned she goes over every detail with you like a friend. I would recommend her to everyone..its really hard to balance emotions and situations when your getting married and Sheryl was there every step of the way. It actually seems like she's my wedding planner, counselor, and friend plus the person marrying us lol and she's so affordable...

Rachael was my favorite part of our wedding. She is absolutely wonderful. She met with us 3 times before the wedding to get to know us and our love story. She incorporated parts of our story into the ceremony. We had a hand-fasting ritual which she thoroughly researched and made it work for us. We also had a tree planting ceremony - she thought of using a lemon tree for us because it fit our story well. We ended up forgetting our marriage license the day of the wedding and there was no way for us to go back home to get it. She was super understanding and was accommodating when we agreed to meet a week after the wedding. Everyone I talked to said that the ceremony was beautiful, all thanks to Rachael! She just overall went above & beyond. On top of all that, she's one of the sweetest people I've ever met! Thank you for everything, Rachael!

Sue was amazing. She more than exceeded our expectations. I've never been married and didnt really didnt know what to do or where to stand. Sue laid it all out and we got ahold of her just 7 days before the ceremony. She made our marriage so easy. She acted really professionally and handled all the paperwork for us. The wedding was awesome. Thanks Sue.

I highly recommend Sara Shendelman as a wedding officiant! She did my wedding with such warmth and enthusiasm, musical talent and professionalism, i couldn't have imagined anything better. The photographers even came up to me after and expressed to me what a unique and wonderful ceremony it was. She helped guide us through the planning process, allowing our personality and beliefs to shape the service, but providing the traditional foundation which we desired. She was such a delight to work with and so easy to get in touch with when I had questions, she made this stressed out bride feel completely at ease! The guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.

I used Hamei for my wedding last year after I witnessed him marry friends of my husband and I. I was so impressed with his professionalism and ability to create such a meaningful ceremony. We needed help deciding on our vows and he helped us decide on how to format it. We already had met him once but he insisted we stop by his restaurant to go over what we wanted from him. I'm glad we did. I highly recommend meeting with him in person. (He bought me and my husband 2 glasses of wine while we chatted with him . ) ;)

Devon Rubin officiated at our beautiful outdoor wedding. We had composed our own vows and she created a custom wedding ceremony that fit perfectly with our wishes. We would recommend her to any couple, whether a unique wedding celebration or a more traditional wedding,

Robyn and Gil were so easy to work with. They were able to guide us into a form to follow when we felt lost but were totally able to incorporate our individual ideas when we asked. What I loved most about them, however, is that they provided such a warm spiritual tone that felt all-inclusive and welcoming. I highly recommend Robyn and Gil for your celebration.
