In the beginning we knew what we wanted for OUR special day. When we explained this to David he completely understood and not once tried to upsell us on some wedding package...like at least 3 other ministers had done prior to. He worked with us in a simple concise fashion and had it all wrapped up for the day to come. On our day, we were VERY HAPPY with David's service. He was integral in keeping our special day light hearted and fun! His demeanor and humor and sincerety was exactly what we were searching for! We were lucky coming across and hiring David here on Thumbtack. Thank You David! ---Thumbtack you need to have better word of mouth or advertising for us new brides! Your service is amazing!

Jeff conducted a small intimate ceremony for my wife and I. He was very friendly and professional, every thing we were looking for really. We put the ad up the day before our wedding after our prior minister backed out, he really put us at ease and did an amazing job providing a beautiful ceremony. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Thank you Donna for making our day so special for us! That may not be the usual description for a jail wedding, but because of your kindness, understanding and compassion we felt blessed being united in God with you as our minister and witness. It took us 12 years to get there and we felt your heart with ours. I also appreciated your time and patience in helping me get the marriage license. Thank you again Love, Tracie and NIck

Robert did a very wonderful job. All our guests kept complimenting on how nice he was and what a beautiful ceremony speech it was. We were a bit nervous about messing up the vows so he gave us the option of not having to repeat everything back which probably saved us some embarrassment. I would definitely recommend him to others looking for an affordable yet professional Minister. Thank you again Robert for sharing in our special day.

Ten stars for The Rev. Dr. Steven M. Marsh! This very wise, kind, sincere, compassionate, highly competent and reliable minister is truly a Godsend to my now husband and me. Rev. Marsh gave generously of his time and heart toward us as we prayerfully journeyed toward our interfaith marriage ceremony. He is the best of the best!

Wedding Officiant Services On October 8th, 2016, Father Shaun Villalobos took part in on of the most memorable and joyous days of my life; my wedding! I met my husband Mark 3 years ago, and from the moment we met, I knew he was special. Coming from a very conservative and Christian background, I always wondered how it would be when it came down to finding a Minister, Pastor, Father, Officiate that would make me and my husband feel comfortable and welcomed. It was important for us to share our beliefs and faith in front of our closest friends and family freely, and without bias or religious agenda. Father Shaun Villalobos made that possible for us! A family friend who he had officiated over their special day referred me to Father Shaun. I recall making the call to Father Shaun, curious about his thoughts on officiating a non-traditional (male/male) wedding and he immediately made me feel comfortable. He was interested in our story and expressed his joy and appreciativeness for our consideration of him. We agreed to meet a few weeks in advance to discuss our ideas and set a tone and theme for our special day. Father Shaun was very organized, professional, and very attentive to the needs of my husband and me. He shared that he wanted to make our day special and encouraged us to be creative and to be as open and comfortable with however we desired to set the tone for our ceremony. We agreed to a light contemporary wedding with us writing our own vows, and Father Shaun putting together a beautiful portion for us to share our thoughts with our families and friends. The two pieces blended together beautifully… tears of joy and love definitely fell that day! One quality that we admired about Father Shaun was his flexibility and willingness to adapt to the changes that so many weddings tend to run into on wedding day. My husband and I exchanged vows 3,000 feet in the air in a magnificent hot air balloon. Father Shaun was open and excited to celebrate this occasion with us. He made sure that our party was properly situated in our air vessel and exchanged words with our pilot to ensure that timing and the quality of our service would be minimally affected. I don't know if any of you have ever been in a hot air balloon before, but it can get pretty loud at times. Father Shaun did a remarkable job in setting the pace and flow of our ceremony so we could capture all the pertinent videos of our ceremony with the least interruptions. Father Shaun Villalobos played such an integral part of our special day, that he asked him to lead our ceremony at our reception/dinner. On a personal note, working in weddings and planning over the past few years at a local winery, I have witnessed first hand many wedding ceremonies and often the most memorable portions that stood out to me the most was the exchanging of vows and the officiates attitude and dedication into making the couples wishes come to past through their words. Father Shaun Villalobos did just that. In closing, Father Shaun will forever hold a special place in mine and my husbands hearts for making our special day possible. Thank You Father Shaun!

Allow me to have someone from within the wedding industry speak on my behalf; There are few practitioners within the wedding profession that have the talent, dedication and sincerity of Ken Day. He truly devotes himself to his customers, his craft and his industry. Within the wedding industry, he is a respected book author and seminar presenter. He has even been asked to speak overseas on more than one occasion. Unlike so many who simply "go through the motions", Ken Day takes professionalism and customer service to an incredibly refreshing level. He has gained the respect of his customers and his peers. Perhaps this is why he is one of the most respected professionals in the wedding industry. - Larry Williams Remarkable Weddings & Reno Tahoe DJ
