I am so sorry. We got married on Valentine's Day this year and I have not left a review yet for the California Wedding Officiant. He did a fantastic job. We enjoyed having him do our wedding. He was very punctual and professional. Very good value for our money.Jun 1, 2018VerifiedCalifornia Wedding Officiant's reply
Thank you Ruth, that was fun, my first Valentines Day wedding. Congratulations to you and Bob!
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!Oct 21, 2015California Wedding Officiant's reply

Andy was great!! He walked us through the whole marriage process. He kept in touch with us on how and when we should apply for the license and gave us a thorough ceremony program on what will go on. He delivered a great and clear ceremony. Everybody like it! Very much recommended! Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding and making it memorable!Jun 9, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a few packages with different pricing to fit different needs. Most weddings fit into my "Wonderful Wedding" package which is $425. I ask for a minimum $150 deposit to reserve the date. There are discounts for weekdays and "off-season" time of year. There may be extra fees for attendance at rehearsals or travel. Please ask for a quote.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I meet with you as a couple to get to know you a bit and allow you to share your ideas about the ceremony. I then take your ideas and combine it with my ideas and experience to create a unique ceremony customized and personalized to fit you. If we decide it's a good fit, I have a wedding agreement which spells out our responsibilities and documents our agreement on them. I ask for an initial deposit to reserve and guarantee the availability of the date and time of your wedding. The balance is due on the day of the ceremony.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am an Ordained Minister and Certified Wedding Officiant with the Universal Life Church. I was raised as a Christian and as an adult became interested in Yoga and Eastern Philosophies. I was a long time Yoga and Meditation instructor. I am very interested in, and see the value in all spiritual traditions. I have done Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and Atheist wedding ceremonies. I will work with you find the right spiritual content based on your backgrounds.
