Rev. Leslie is very kind, and professional. Thank you for making our wedding ceremony great. I would highly recommend others to hire her as an officiant.Mar 2, 2019Verified
An incredible experience with an incredible officiant! Our ceremony was last minute and private at our San Francisco hotel and Leslie made it so meaningful, special, and was a true joy to have be part of our wedding! We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a warm, kind, and loving person to officiate their wedding.Aug 2, 2019VerifiedRev. Dr. Leslie Carole Taylor's reply
Thank you so much, Liz! May you and John have a long and beautiful marriage! Enjoy your time in California!
Having Leslie officiate was one of the best and easiest decisions of our entire wedding planning process. She provided invaluable guidance and was a joy to work with. The ceremony was expertly delivered and we got so many compliments afterwards. We both highly recommend Leslie!Sep 26, 2018VerifiedRev. Dr. Leslie Carole Taylor's reply
Thank you, so much!
We were nervous about finding an officiant for our destination wedding in SF. Dr. Taylor was absolutely amazing! She gave us numerous options for our ceremony and helped us create exactly what we wanted.Jun 11, 2018VerifiedRev. Dr. Leslie Carole Taylor's reply
Thank you so much! You and Michelle are such a wonderful couple!
Reverend Taylor was kind, responsive, and performed a beautiful ceremony. I am so glad we chose her for our wedding ceremony and I hope you consider her when deciding on an officiant!May 27, 2018VerifiedRev. Dr. Leslie Carole Taylor's reply
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All Inclusive Personalizing and Officiating the Wedding Ceremony: Meeting with the couple, designing the ceremony, travel to rehearsal and wedding venue, and filing the license following the ceremony. I meet with the couple to design the service that reflects them. I create the ceremony and meet with the couple regularly (in person, or via phone, email, or Skype). Ceremonies can be as simple or as elaborate as the couple desires. $300 (Rehearsal $100)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I generally meet with the couple one time to make sure we are a good fit and that we are clear about expectations and needs. Depending on the service needed, we meet regularly throughout the process (in person or virtually) to accomplish those goals. My goal is to help you have the wedding of your dreams and have fun doing it. Don't be nervous, just look at me!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master of Divinity (M. Div.) from Chicago Theological Seminary, with a specialization in Pastoral Care. I have a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) from Methodist Theological School in Ohio with a specialization in Transformational Leadership. I am an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and have been ordained since 1988. I have served small, medium and large membership churches as well as serving in non-profits and educational settings.
